Perfect for sprints, intervals, and all-day cruising, the Kinetic Road Machine offers smooth, quiet resistance for indoor training. Like every Kinetic Trainer, the Road Machine operates with a 100% leak-proof, patented magnetic drive system. The power calibration gives you true outdoor simulation while the automatic resistance adjusts as you change speeds.
The Road Trainers 6.25-pound flywheel results in a smooth, road-like ride without altering the force curve. The flywheel delivers a realistic 15-second coast-down from 20 miles per hour.
With the trapezoidal leg design, the Road Trainer offers largest footprint of any trainer to keep power and motion focused on the flywheel. Even during hard, out-of-the-saddle pedaling, the ride remains rock steady.
Unlike other fluid trainers that lose resistance when the fluid is heated up, Kinetic Fluid Trainers use thermodynamically neutral liquid silicon to ensure a consistent, measurable and repeatable workload at all temperatures.
According to the laws of physics, energy is never lost or gained, but simply changes form. In the case of a fluid trainer, the energy of the spinning impeller inside the fluid chamber is converted into heat. Kinetic Fluid Trainers have been designed with 80 cast aluminum cooling fins to dissipate heat and provide the lowest operating temperature of any trainer.
The Road Trainer is fully compatible with wheels measuring from 22 to 29 inches (outside diameter), including bikes with flip-off skewers, breezer drops-outs, and nutted axles on track and BMX styling. A small wheel adapter is required for 16 to 21-inch wheels (sold separately).
Kinetic offers a 100 percent leakproof performance with a patented magnetic drive system that uses neodymium magnets to link the drive system together. This eliminates the problems caused when a physical drive shaft has to enter the fluid chamber--which means no need for O rings or seals that will eventually wear out and leak.

I upgraded to the Kurt Road Machine after a year on a much cheaper trainer. The difference is immeasurable. After an hour on the Kinetic I wish I'd purchased it long long ago. Read morePublished 17 days ago by Samuel
HUGE design flaw. You see that L bolt in the picture? The new model did away with it. Why? Look closely, if you over tighten, even just a little the bracket that holds the... Read morePublished 27 days ago by Uncle Sam
