In other words, the unit works gradually and progressively with speed. In other words, the resistance increases and decreases in reaction to the changing wheel speed. Thus, replicating the feel of the road and providing an easy and efficient solution to your daily workout. So to have a rigorous workout session just increase your pedal speed and the resistance will increase accordingly. The Fluid 2’s two-inch roller gives a smoother ride with less tire wear.

Fluid Resistance

Cycleops Fluid 2 Trainer is simple, durable and sturdy equipment. It is made of strong 2-inch round 16-guage steel. It works on the Power Band technology and produces resistance level that is consistently challenging and keeps things exciting by simulating gear-shifts throughout the workout process. There is no amendment or fine-tuning required with the fluid resistance unit. The extent to which the CycleOps’ engineers have tuned the resistance is remarkable. They have located the resistance accurately at the point when 2mph speed intersects with 400watts. Since the resistance is made a function of cadence, this gives you a range from 20 watts to 725 watts, with a single trainer. The Fluid 2 Trainer also contains a cooling system so that there are no vapors of smoke no matter how many watts you produce while exercising. It makes no noise and fits very well into your household. That is a bonus point for the buyers. Continue reading to know how to use stationary bike .
