Zwift Kinetic zPower Basic Package $474.95
Zwift's Kinetic zPower Basic Package is a minimalist, foldable indoor training setup that serves as a home base for your Zwift rides. It includes Kinetic's Road Machine 2.0 Fluid Trainer and all the Garmin ANT+ hardware you'll need to connect and ride with the Zwift global community. Even though you're literally riding in place, Zwift will transport you and your bike into a 3D world where you can test your skills against other riders or simply catch their wheel and ride.
The trainer's resistance unit features a 6.25-pound (2.84kg) flywheel, six rare-earth magnets, and a completely sealed fluid resistance unit for a consistent road-like feel and resistance curve that matches the smooth progression of your Zwift Rider on-screen. The tire roller is made of stainless steel and is 2.5in (6.35cm) in diameter, dwarfing the competition and resulting in less tire wear and reduced heat buildup. The unit's fluid chamber also reduces heat, so the viscosity of the fluid doesn't change and you experience a consistent road-like power curve that increases as your speed increases. It's also relatively light, making for a portable Zwift setup that travels and stores easily.
While the Zwift Kinetic zPower Basic Package provides all the hardware you'll need to experience Zwift, you'll still need a subscription (free download) in order to ride.
