ELITE Novo Force Turbo Trainer Review
Who makes the Elite Novo Force Turbo Trainer? A cycling brand you may not be aware of, and there maybe a few if your new to cycling, but a cycling brand you should not ignore when it comes to bike turbo trainers, especially when your looking for the best cycle trainer.
ELITE are a firm of cycling enthusiasts that have been offering the cycling world cutting edge products for over 30 years. Therefore you can understand that your in safe hands, knowing that they have the knowledge to provide the best turbo trainer you can buy.
ELITE sponsor many of the teams in the Tour De France the Giro amongst many classics. So with their attention to detail you can expect a quality bike trainer. Next time your watching the Tour De France, take a look closer you will see them.
Its worth noting for your information that the ELITE Novo Force Turbo Trainer is actually the successor the Elites Novo Mag so to be an upgrade of that turbo trainer is saying something.
No need to worry about noise. Some turbo trainers to me sound like a motorbike! The ELITE Novo force has a smooth and quiet magnetic resistance unit.
As well as being a great design for a bike trainer the ELITE Novo force turbo trainer comes with a ElastoGel roller which reduces noise and tyre wear by 20%.
The elastogel roller with a diameter of 30 mm provides a better grip of the tyre, which reduces frictional losses and noise generation.
There is 8 levels of resistance so when training indoors and imaging your on a mountain climb the resistance level can be adjusted so you feel like you really are out on the road. Resistance adjusted on the handlebar.
The Novo frame moves the resistance unit to the rear of the wheel, allowing the bike to be positioned closer to the ground, increasing stability and removing the need for a riser block.
There is also adjustable support system, allowing an adequate and constant pressure between the roller and tyre.
