CycleOps Fluid2 Trainer

CycleOps' Fluid2 Trainer utilizes Power Band technology to allow for distinct resistance changes without reaching to a lever on the unit. The large flywheel delivers a smooth, realistic road feel while sturdy legs provide a stable platform for pumping out hard, 600-watt efforts and out-of-the-saddle climbs. A favorite among serious racers, the Fluid2 is easily transportable and stands up to repeated punishment by the burliest of legs for years of impressive performance.

    I live on the third floor in an apartment and was gifted a magnetic trainer. I felt terrible with how much noise it made so I sold it and bought the Fluid 2. I ride almost every day and I have not had one complaint. Definitely worth the investment, especially for those rainy/snowy days.

    Trainer excellent, power training kit not so much

    By Joanie

    Comments:

    The trainer itself is great - easy to install, provides a smooth and relatively quiet ride, but the power training kit was a waste of money and I regret purchasing it.

    Great Trainer

    Comments:

    I purchased a Fluid2 trainer a few weeks ago and have enjoyed using it every day. It affords me a great workout regardless of the time/weather, prepares me for the cycling season and is a non-impacting exercise alternative to running. Great product. Well built. Worth every penny.

    Best customer support -- impressed

    By Rickster

    Comments:

    I have had a Fluid 2 trainer since they were first introduced -- lot of years! It has received a lot of use and performed very well. Recently I noticed that it's resistance decreased and found some fluid on the floor. I called customer service -- no questions or problems, just send it to them, tell them my shipping order and they send a replacement immediately. Easy Squeezy. Easiest, fastest, politest, best support I've had in the last 200'years. I'm impressed and gratified.

    It got me ready for 5000 km in 2014

    Entry level trainer, basic but it does everything that you need. Believe me when I say it is hard to get outside from October to April in Toronto.

    Outstanding trainer with Service to match

    By MMan

    from Indianapolis, IN, USA

    About Me Competitive Cyclist

    Comments:

    I have used this trainer vigorously for 6 years- - intervals, sprints, and tempo workouts. It has kept me sharp and fast. Recently, I had an issue and contacted the company for support. Their response was impressive. They absolutely stood behind their lifetime warranty. Furthermore, they shipped a replacement unit THE SAME DAY! All so I would not miss a workout. A high-quality product with service like this is rare.

    Great Trainer!

    By LesCher

    About Me Casual/Recreational Rider

    Comments:

    I was hesitant to put out the money for the fluid trainer but thankful I did! It is relatively quite despite the hybrid tires I have currently. I would agree that it is the closest thing to a real ride. As with a real ride the resistance increase with speed. Easy to set up, though it would be nice if the instructions were a little more specific to the model and not as general. Overall very pleased and would recommend this item!

    Dependability you can count on...

    By Roger

    Comments:

    I've owned my CycleOps Fluid2 for some time now and racked up 1000s of miles on it when weather doesn't permit outdoor, or I just need to get some miles in for training. The only thing I've needed to replace on it is the flip handle and CycleOps offers that readily and at a great price direct from their website.

    I bought this a couple of month ago, used it and could not believe how quiet it was compared to the other trainers I have used.

    Great Resistance

    By Chas

    from Massachusetts

    Comments:

    I bought the Fluid trainer to keep up during winter and rain days and found this to be better than anything else I have tried. The resistance feels as though you are riding outside. It is simply awesome.
