Kurt Manufacturing got its start in the cycling industry when it began manufacturing the trainer frames for a competitor. The competitor went bankrupt in 1999. Stuck with a great deal of inventory and tooling and armed with the knowledge about leaking resistance units, Kurt decided to apply its precision manufacturing expertise to build bike trainers. The result was a design so innovative it was awarded a patent for its leak proof fluid resistance unit. In 2pure’s opinion no other trainer brings everything together like Kinetic. From the heavy weight flywheel to the leak proof fluid chambers, every element is calibrated to achieve a single objective; align cyclists with the most natural, road like feeling imaginable.
New for 2016, Inride - The Kinetic inRide is their next-generation power meter. The system uses the Bluetooth Smart™ communication protocol found in Apple devices including the: iPhone 4s and 5-series and 6-series and the iPad 3, 4 and Mini and iPod Touch 5th generation to wirelessly pair a heart rate monitor and power sensor pod with the new Kinetic inRide iPhone App to measure power with any Kinetic fluid trainer. Now also available for Android.
The incredibly accurate fluid trainer power curve allows precise wattage readings at exact speeds as measured indoors on a Kinetic fluid trainer. Firmware in the inRide Sensor Pod measures speed and cadence at the tire and translates that to wattage with a simple equation. That data and the heart rate data is collected and displayed on the paired iPhone.
