"Bought medium which fitted well around the waist but poor fit around the legs.
Gel pad had a logo imprinted in it which IMO is taking branding too far.
Comfort was no better than other mid price shorts I own.
All in all, not as good a product as other Altura items I own."

Resistance unit adjustment to tyre

The latest version of this trainer has a click wheel to adjust the resistance unit to the tyre. The picture on your website shows the earlier handle version. Can you confirm which version you are selling ?

For serious athletes and cyclists with goals that require flexibility and choice in ride type and resistance curve to match the needs of their various workouts.
 

Staff answer not clear

Your answer is not clear regarding the mag. unit securing mechanism.

I need to know whether the trainer supplied by you has the latest knob securing mechanism or the earlier handle.

Telling me you the year of manufacture is 2013 is not helpful as the modification to the specification may be for the 2014 model onwards.

Securing device for resistance unit?

The latest version of this trainer uses a knob to secure the resistance unit against the tyre not the handle shown in your photograph. How can I ensure I get the current trainer from you?

The Rolls-Royce of mudguards; they are virtually unbreakable and very elegant. The stainless steel v-shaped stays make for easy fitting and quick release secu-clips are far safer than standard fixings.
 

Will they fit my 2014 Specialized Secteur?

My bike is fitted with the standard 25mm tyres and mudguard eyes to the fork and rear of the frame. Will the narrow version of these mudguards fit?

Can this unit (minus the digital reader) be used without power attached or is it rendered useless without mains power?

Top 250 Contributor

Without power this unit will default to the highest level of resistance. At 60 Km/hr will produce 1000 watts!!

If you look on the Elite website you can see the power graph.

What training programmes are loaded into the trainer?

Is it a case of selecting a profile, time, distance, difficulty and if so is there some way of comparing training to a previous ride or average speed?
Top 250 Contributor
Top 250 Contributor
If you have an IPad/iPhone fitted with an ANT+ dongle you could use the Elite My E-Training app and have the facility to edit the existing or add your own programs for use with the trainer. In addition you could generate personal training plans based on your own performance by using the Training Test within the app.

RESISTANCE LEVELS AND WATTAGE

does it have resistance levels and what is the max wattage on the highest resistance level
Top 250 Contributor
Top 250 Contributor
This trainer has a number of different modes.
There are 16 different levels and they will work in a similar manner to any other turbo trainer.
In power mode you can set a specific power rather than resistance.
The supplied computer has a minimum setting of 60 watts with the maximum available at 1000 watts in 10 watt increments.
It is interesting to note that using your IPad/IPhone and the Elite My E-Training app will enable much finer control of power.

Try the Elite My E-Training app which is a development of the program you are using. You will need an ANT+ dongle to plug into your IPhone, it does not work with Bluetooth.

Does the Qubo Wireless Digital have the functionality to download recorded training data to a PC? If not are there similar trainers which can do this?

If you use the Elite My E-Training app for IPad/IPhone rather than the standard computer supplied within the package you will be able to retain detailed training data and also export it via email to a standard computer.
