CYCLEOP POWERBEAM PRO TRAINER

I have had multiple Cycleops trainers (Wind, Fluid and SuperMag) over the years but have always wanted the technology of my Cycleops PT 300 with portability and Ant+ wireless technology. The Cycleops PowerBeam Pro was designed for the athlete who wants to control all resistance variables and digest valuable information to increase his/her performance. Knowledge is POWER and the PowerBeam gives you every imaginable detail of your workout giving you’re your own personal world class research and testing facility. The PowerBeam manual resistance can be adjusted from 30 to 1000 watts with slopes from 0 to 10 degrees of hill climbing. I personally love this feature because it is reliable, simple and quick. The Closed Loop resistance control ensures accurate technology to + or – 5% for precise power measurement with instantaneous resistance changes all at your finger tip. Constant interaction between the trainer and computer gives you smooth and immediate changes just like a Real Road experience. The Power Beam Pro trainer is one of the quietest I’ve ever used and sets up in a few seconds with the self adjusting mechanism. The frame is sturdy and has a sharp classy look and design to it.  The ability to control my own variables (watts/slope) has given me a more precise dialed in workout and improved my performance and objective data need for my ongoing research.
