The Kinetic by Kurt Rock and Roll 2.0 indoor bike trainer delivers a natural side-to-side motion with lateral movement to engage core muscles and maintain balance. You can simultaneously work on technique and power especially during out-of-the-saddle hill climb intervals. Kinetic Fluid Resistance Trainers are built to push your limits. They are the most advanced mechanical training tools available. Innovative design, patented fluid resistance technology, and precision engineering set Kinetic Fluid Trainers apart from the competition.
The Rock and Roll 2.0 has been redesigned for 2014 and now features a new design with a lighter and smaller frame, stronger mounting system, and more active sideways motion.
The most realistic indoor ride available
The Rock and Roll 2.0 features a natural side to side motion allowing your bike to move just as it does on the road. The lateral movement helps you maintain form on the bike and forces you to engage your core muscles for an all around better workout. A stable core will help eliminate unnecessary upper-body movement, so that energy is used efficiently, and is key to riding a bike well. It will also stabilize the pelvis, giving your legs a solid fulcrum to act against, efficiently transferring power to the pedals.
Patented fluid resistance technology
Resistance in the Rock and Roll 2.0 is created by turning a blade inside a container of fluid. This resistance is progressive and it increases as your wheel speed increases. Kinetic fluid trainers provide the most realistic replication of the resistance a rider experiences outdoors. It’s simple with fluid: Want to warm up? Put it in an easy gear and spin. Ready to work hard? Simply pedal harder and resistance increases. Doing an interval workout? Change gears and pick up the tempo—resistance meets you exactly like on the road. There’s no need to turn a dial on the trainer to go harder.
Medical grade silicone fluid
Kinetic uses a thermodynamically neutral medical grade silicone fluid in our trainers because it provides consistent, repeatable workloads and is not affected by temperature. Kinetic trainers are precisely calibrated and tuned to provide the exact same amount of resistance every workout, from start to finish.
Lifetime of leak-proof performance
Kinetic fluid trainers feature an engineering breakthrough - the patented magnetic drive system which offers a lifetime of leak-proof performance. With other fluid trainers, the drive shaft enters the fluid chamber. This spinning drive shaft is the weak point of the unit. Our magnetic drive system uses two sets of powerful magnets on either side of a separating wall, so there are no moving parts entering the fluid chamber.
Quietest fluid trainer available
Kinetic uses an internal fan and 80 cooling fins, which provides both the quietest fluid trainer we have tested and the lowest operating temperature of any fluid trainer.
InRide Watt Meter compatible
Kinetic fluid trainers, when combined with the inRide Watt Meter
(sold separately), allow accurate and consistent measurement of power based on the RPMs of the resistance unit for much less than any other power training solution. The inRide Watt Meter is sold separately and includes the inRide Sensor Pod and inRide Heart Monitor. The system uses the Bluetooth Smart communication protocol found in Apple devices including the: iPhone 4s and 5-series and 6-series and the iPad 3, 4 and Mini and iPod Touch 5th generation to wirelessly pair a heart rate monitor and power sensor pod with the new Kinetic inRide iPhone App.
