ANTI-VIBRATION FOOT DESIGN
One of the principle causes of noise caused by trainers is the resonance cause by vibration being transmitted to the floor. Minoura's new Anti-Vibration foot design helps minimize this vibration.

The V100 is Minoura's smoothest and quietest Mag unit yet. With an ultra Powerful Neodymium magnet, the resisance is now applied firectly to the flywheel rather than a separate rotor giving an amazing range of resistance over 7 levels controlled by a new ergonomic remote shifter. Thanks to its unique step design the flywheel has a Virtual weight of 1.5kg for an optimum road like feel. The Gyro V150's super strong and stable 4-leg H frame with quick release will deliver Minoura's smoothest and most varied magnetic training experience.

STEEL QUICK RELEASE SKEWER
Many of today's bicycles are equipped with either Alloy capped or Plastic capped quick releases skewers, which can be easily damaged when used on Trainers. Minoura provides a Chromed Steel Quick Release lever as a stock item with each trainer.


Why buy a Cycle Trainer ?
Cyclists usually have two choices once the cold winter weather sets in and outdoor riding is impossible or uncomfortable. First option join a health club and start to train on life cycles or take spinning classes. Now, some of us will go and exercise at the club on a regularly basis, but for the rest of us it's less likely.

Your other option is to consider a Cycle trainer which are designed to support the rear wheel of your bike and apply resistance to the tire or rim. This achieves the similar effect of riding your bicycle outdoors and also allows you to change the gears of the bike to offer large range of riding
resistance's.


To Recap:
Cheaper than a health club membership
Will be more comfortable with your own bicycle
Can watch TV, listen to music or read a book
Ride anytime your schedule suits you
More likely to use, compared to a traditional exercise bike
Sets up in minutes - breaks down just as quick
Keep fit all year long

Mag Trainers
This magnetic system is the best compromise of quiet, effective training at a reasonable cost and vastly improved over previous models to offer an even greater range of resistance! Includes all-steel quick release skewer to prevent damage to your existing skewer.

It is crucial that only a completely slick tire be used with any tire drive system. Using any other tire like a knobby MTB tire or even a road tire with some pattern in the tread will cause an uneven and perhaps dangerous training experience.

The Minoura Gyro V100 trainer is the first model that we recommend for people looking to use a road bike or hybrid with their trainer. The larger Mag unit offers a a smoother and more progressive riding experience. No set up required and fits all kinds of Mountain, Road, City, Hyrbid or comfort bikes.
