It got a decent review on DC Rainmaker.
Nice! You can also show your BC voucher on your phone (etc) if you don't want to waste a bit of paper.
how much better are these than the other type with wheel on roller

Less faf in terms of the wheel. You need a different tyre for the traditional trainers which is probably a ten minute job each time you want to use it or a 50 cost to have a spare wheel and cassette ready each time. These are also quieter.

Was really very tempted by this.
The 4 second lag in changing resistance on something like TR almost halves 10 second sprint blocks and that alone moved me back into the undecided/waiting for something else.
Currently using a borrowed Kickr mk1, which is lovely (if noisy).
Good review from gpl
Zumo power reading accuracy is +/- 3%. Unlike the Direto which has an integrated OTS (Optical Torque Sensor) power meter, Zumo uses its algorithms to calculate the power.


Zumo: 399
Direto: 599
For the diff I'd say get external power meter as at least you can use it elsewhere.

Thanks - this was the information I was after. Ironically Zwift uses algorithms for virtual power on dumb turbo trainers.
Did see the Directo was down to £450 in a long gone HUKD deal though...

Question is: anything good for Black Friday/Cyber Monday of Elite Trainers? Hopefully yes :-)
Doubt they'll give you BC on a sale item
