Direct Drive, Realistic Road Feel
The Revolution is a direct-drive, progressive resistance trainer. This means that all of your energy goes directly into turning the flywheel, creating the same high inertia, low mechanical drag that you get while riding outdoors. The Revolution spins freely when the pedals aren't engaged, and delivers progressive wind resistance similar to real-world conditions.
The Revolution does away with the rear wheel entirely. Simply remove your back wheel, slip your dropouts onto the axles of the Revolution and go. No more tire slippage, tire wear and tear, and no more front blocks to level your bike.
The Choice of Professionals
Designed for Greg LeMond in the early 1980's by a Russian physicist, the original trainer was a key part of Greg's fitness program at the time, enabling him to train effectively in the wet, cold conditions of Northern Europe. Re-designed, and re-engineered, the Revolution is now the official trainer of the Garmin & Optum Professional Cycling Teams.
