Better health. Faster splits. More me-time. Whatever your goals may be, the Fluid² helps you get the most out of each indoor training ride.
The large, precision-balanced flywheel (with patented fan design) lets you easily customize each ride simply by shifting gears, just as you would outside. This design also helps keep your Fluid² working better for longer. And thanks to our built-to-last manufacturing process, the Fluid² can help you conquer one goal after the next.

I've been training indoors on a second-hand Cycleops adjustable mag trainer for years. When it was finally time to upgrade, I choose the Fluid2 as my next trainer. Having spent this winter on the Fluid2, I can say without hesitation that I love this trainer. Compared with the magnetic version, this trainer is whisper quiet and the resistance is so much more progressive. When riding my magnetic trainer, I found that the harder/faster I pedaled the lower the relative resistance became. As a result, I found I could out-spin the magnetic trainer and not get the resistance I needed when doing intervals. Not so with the Fluid2. When interval training on the Fluid2, the resistance increases in response to effort. This is exactly what you want when doing high-intensity intervals, completely changing the nature of my indoor training sessions. In addition to loving this trainer, it is worth mentioning what a terrific company Cycleops is. When I had trouble years ago setting up the adjustment lever on my magnetic trainer the folks at Cycleops were friendly, quick to help, and completely unconcerned that it was a used trainer. They wanted to make sure I was happy with their product, regardless of its history. Since then, I've had occasion to work with Cycleops as they've supported a high school cycling club that I run and they have been wonderful to work with. They support their customers like a small "family owned" company...a rarity in today's world.
Purchased as a gift for my birthday from my wife......Everything included in the fluid2 training Kit box, easy to set up and use.
