INDOOR TRAINING Turbo charged!


With the rain beginning to set in, the fair weather cyclist will be looking to keep their training up within the comfort of their own home. Mark Sutton details the market’s indoor training product and where to source each from…


Paligap


CYCLEOPS HAS entirely remodelled its 2014 classic Series, adding numerous new features. First up, they all come in black, which


arguably makes them easier to sell to the pickier customer. The skewer mechanism is new and improved upon the old version. The resistance unit adjustment is based around a new clutch knob, which the user simply tightens until the clutch disengages. This means that the press on force is the same each time and the user won’t have to guess if the roller is too tight against the tyre. Both the classic and Pro Series trainers


now offer a better fit for those using a 29er on the turbo.


A new Silencer model also joins the


catalogue, using a magnetic resistance combined with a remote level to offer ten levels of adjustment. Designed stable to cope with interval workouts, the system is available with or without a ten-speed Shimano/SRAM cassette. A Campagnolo adapter is sold separately. CycleOps has added a turbo specific


yellow trainer tyre to its accessories catalogue, as well as both Joule and a Joule GPS with CycleOps branding. A virtual training app is also now downloadable, allowing the rider to link via Bluetooth, information on their favourite rides to use with their trainers. 01454 313116


Chicken Cyclekit


JET BLACK Cycling is now a well established brand in the British market, thanks to its adoption by distributor Chicken Cyclekit.


The firm itself has made an important


contribution to the design of modern day turbo trainers with its calibrated Fluid Resistant head and heavy weight flywheel design. All models are supplied fully assembled with folding frames for


ease of storage and travel. Winners of the IF International Forum Product Design Award, the label offers stability for the toughest rider and a full back-up service in spares parts and accessories. Offering both training rollers for £156.99 at retail and a series of turbo trainers spanning just £87.99 for the S1 Sport through £364.99 for the flagship Dynometer package, Jet Black has your customer covered. A catalogue of extras including floor


mats, wheel blocks and more is also available from Chicken Cyclekit. 01525 381347


2Pure


THE ACQUISITION of Chocolate distribution’s portfolio gave 2pure a turbo trainer label in the form of Kurt Kinetic. Top of the range and dubbed the Rock


and Roll, the firm’s ‘most realistic’ trainer offers a ‘natural side to side’ motion, meaning core muscles are engaged to maintain balance, enabling the rider to work on realistic technique and power output, particularly when out of the saddle for hill climb intervals. It’s not the cheapest of the bunch at £464.99 retail price, it is however, knobbly tyre 29er compatible and reinforced in all the right places to last and last. A new RU


tension system eliminates bending of frames and L-bolts from over tightening. What’s more, for the retailer, the new boxes double as a POP and include bar- coded serialisation for tracking product. Also new from Kinetic is the InRide


watt meter, which syncs via Bluetooth with an iPhone 4 and iPad3 or later device. The system uses the new Bluetooth Smart communication protocol found in the iPhone 4S and iPad 3 to pair a heart rate monitor and power sensor pod with the new Kinetic inRide iPhone App* to measure wattage with any Kinetic fluid trainer. 0844 811 2001
