Smart Trainer

Nail every interval with perfect precision using automatic resistance control.

Perfect Precision, Automatically

Pick your cadence and let the trainer do the rest. Smart trainers work with TrainerRoad to constantly adjust resistance, so you are always hitting your power targets.

Ultimate Control

Use automatic resistance control (ERG Mode) to precisely hit your targets every time, or switch trainer modes on the fly to emulate a standard trainer.

Lower Cognitive Load

Let your trainer handle interval precision so you can focus on your power and whatever entertainment you want while you train.

PowerMatch

Get consistent data inside and out. Pair your power meter and smart trainer with TrainerRoad to control the resistance of your trainer with your power meter.

How Smart Trainers Work
