Road Machine Smart Control Trainer

Infuse some extra motivation into your winter training regimen with Kinetic's Road Machine Smart Control Trainer. Taking the form of a traditional wheel-on trainer and stealthily outfitted with Bluetooth Smart capability, the Road Machine lets you connect to a variety of third-party apps, including Zwift and TrainerRoad for a more interactive indoor ride experience. As an added touch, it comes packaged with its own quick-release trainer skewer so you ride assured that your race skewers will remain unscratched, while bikes with rear thru-axles require Kinetic's Traxle thru-axle adapter for use on any trainer.

Kinetic's Road Resistance Unit boasts a stainless steel roller with a beefy 2.5in (6.35cm) diameter, which is a good bit larger than much of the competition. The larger roller means less wear on your tire and it reduces the temperature of the spinning elements. The right side has a 14.4-pound flywheel, one of the heaviest around, that gives the satisfying feeling of momentum when you're spinning up to speed, holding speed, and slowing down. On the left side is a unique two-part fluid resistance unit, which is the heart of their system, replicating a max slope of 10% and max resistance of 1800 watts at 30 mph.

As with all trainers, this system builds heat from friction as your ride, and your energy has to go somewhere. To counteract this, Kinetic adds an internal fan and 80 cooling fins on the outside to help dissipate heat. It's almost impossible to overheat the unit or reach a point where performance is diminished. The silicone fluid retains its physical properties, even up to the normal operating temperature of 325-degrees Fahrenheit while riding at 25mph, resulting in a consistent road-like power curve that increases as your speed increases.

Not too bad

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

At first, I had issue getting it to connect to some training apps, but since then, I have worked out the kinks and it runs like a dream. Feels really nice, and the smart feature makes training a lot more enjoyable.

Unanswered Question

Is this unit compatible with Zwift?

Train Away!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I’ve used just about every ergometer trainer on the market, and have been surprisingly happy with the Kinetic Smart Control resistance unit. The flywheel is significantly heavier than the other similar trainers, so not only do you get a more realistic ride feel, changes in power during workouts are more pronounced, making for a more realistic and controlled workout. The frame is also very stable (though I would recommend greasing the threads for the clamps while assembling). Overall, great experience, easy to use apps; 10/10 would recommend.
