R1 Direct Drive Smart Trainer by Kinetic
We're pretty excited about the all-new R1 Direct Drive Smart Trainer from Kinetic. This is the first direct drive trainer from the brand that's quickly becoming the preferred way to mount up a bike as it's way quieter and doesn't eat up tires like a traditional tire on a roller setup. What separates this trainer from other direct drives on the market is its use of Kinetic's patented Rock and Roll technology allowing you to jump out of the saddle for a sprint or climb and have your bike move naturally beneath you, just as it would on the open road. This side to side movement is user adjustable allowing you to tune it to your personal preference and riding style. Pair this with app-controlled resistance and you have an electronic trainer that will get you through your winter doldrums. Besides the side-to-side movement and the ability to virtually race your buddies online, its massive 14-pound flywheel is also responsible for that realistic road feel. The R1 is able to wirelessly communicate via ANT+TM, ANT+TM FE-C, and Bluetooth FTMS to smartphones, tablets, and laptops allowing for fully interactive resistance when paired to apps like Kinetic Fit, Zwift, TrainerRoad, Rouvy, Kinomap, The Sufferfest, and FulGaz.

The tool-free freehub body swap even allows for easy changes between bikes with an additional freehub kit if your teammates need to use it too. The R1's electronically controlled resistance creates enough resis...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
