    I would not recommend.

    About Me Avid Cyclist

    Comments:

    I enjoy riding the Magnus for quick sessions when it is working. I have had the product for two months now and have had to send in two different parts. Its a good trainer, when working. A+ to my LBS for being good sports about the entire thing. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone planning on using it for more than a monthly endeavour.

          This is my first smart trainer, and boy is it fun! I've been using it mainly with Zwift, but have also tried out Rouvy. No matter the platform, you're sur to enhance your winter indoor riding with this machine.

            Great trainer, after trying both I wish I would've went with the hammer just because it was such an amazing trainer. This magnus is truley incredible for the price its at. You get a $400 with a $800 power meter, all for 599, that's insane. They did an amazing job

            • Easy To Use

            Cons

            • Instructions on ANT + use could have been better

            Best Uses

              Comments:

              I have used this product for a short time, although it is better than I expected. The road feel is much more realistic than a standard trainer and it "plays nice" with Zwift.

              Comments:

              A bit of an adjustment from outdoor riding, takes a little getting used to especially if you team the trainer with apps such as Zwift. Training by wats is different kind of ride than I've been used to but I'm getting the hang of it.

                Use it for interval training. This replaces my old cyclops trainer which I have had since 2001.
