Thanks to the advent of smart trainers and interactive apps, indoor training has never been more fun! If you’re looking to escape the heat and unpredictable summer weather of South Florida, it’s time to bring your training indoors. Bikes Palm Beach can help you select the indoor trainer that’s right for you. We’ll help ensure that it’s compatible with your bike. We can also suggest compatible apps to help enhance your experience and track your training goals.
What is a smart trainer?
Smart trainers are interactive trainers that connect with indoor cycling apps (like Zwift). The app integration controls the trainer’s resistance to replicate hills, headwinds, and other environmental factors that you’re missing on your indoor rides.
Direct drive trainers require you to remove the rear wheel and connect your bike to the trainer via a standard cassette. Direct drive trainers tend to be quieter than wheel-on trainers and offer more accuracy in terms of power metrics than the wheel-on trainers can provide.
