Product Details

CycleOps Magneto

CycleOps' Magneto is an innovative training tool to keep you fit, trim, and ready to ride no matter what the weather is like outside. It offers progressive resistance, which means the faster you go, the quicker the resistance ramps up, just like the real world. There is no adjustment necessary, and the resistance level automatically changes to give you a smooth, quiet ride. Plus, the frame is tough, sturdy and stable so you can ride as hard as you want.

      My son and I use this trainer for winter riding. It's easy to use and we love having the ability to shift and increase resistance that way.

        I wish I'd bought this before winter. I got it at the end of winter. I've used it when the weather is bad. It gives me a good workout in a shorter amount of time. Noise level is typical to this type of trainer, but when I'm in the other room, it doesn't bother the family watching tv.

          It's hard to get out in the winter to ride. Sometimes I run but even that is hard when its cold and sloppy/icy out. I bought the Magneto and it is great!

          I had a CyleOps Magneto trainer for about 6 weeks. As time went on it got noisier and noisier. Finally I took it back to the local bike shop where I bought it and upgraded to the Fluid2 with a full credit for the Magneto. The bike shop agreed that something was rattling around badly inside and the noise level was way too high. While I was using the Magneto (and while it was still quiet), I liked the ride, very road like, and the gears adjusted the resistance very well. I originally got the trainer shortly after having knee surgery and needed a way to exercise without putting stress on my knee. The Magneto filled the bill.

          Comments:

          I have used my Magneto Trainer for about TEN YEARS in my basement, outdoor porch (after injury stability recovery/training rides), and office for training during inclement weather, winter, and one-foot training. TEN YEARS and it is STILL functioning like the first day I bought it. Seriously awesome heavy duty quality (maybe I should oil it or something?--never ever done any maintenance). It is quieter than wind or other trainers, but inexpensive enough for a graduate student to buy with Christmas money. After ten years, I have not regretted the money I spent on this trainer--nor the choice of trainer--not one bit. I may not have ridden much the first five years, but the past five years, I have put over 4,000 miles on this trainer. IF you use Zwift, with your cell phone and cadence/speed sensor, this trainer will work! No need to get a dongle or a computer-connected trainer!

          High quality product and great customer service

          Comments:

          I originally ordered the Mag Trainer and there was defect in the resistance weight. The customer service made up for this 110% and sent me the resistance weight that upgraded my trainer to the Magneto. I've used this several times now and love it. It's very sturdy and a high quality piece of equipment. I break a decent sweat with a 45 minute ride. I needed something to help lower my cholesterol and stay in shape during the winter months. It's well worth the investment because I know I will get a solid workout for years to come.

            I got this as a Christmas gift and absolutley love it! I miss my bike during winter and this thing is a near perfect substitue. It is very quiet for use indoors and very easy to set up. I use it several times a week for about an hour at a time and haven't had one problem. Also when your done it folds up nice and stores easily.

                This is my first time using a trainer. It was easy to assemble and only took about 15 minutes to set up. Ride is stable and simulates road conditions well.
