The free moving electronic resistance trainer, the Rock and Roll - Smart Control, headlines product line debuting this fall.

Kinetic unveils all new Smart Control trainer lineup

Minneapolis-based company Kinetic today announced the launch of its new Kinetic Smart Control electronic trainers.

The lineup is headlined by what the brand is calling ‘the first ever free-moving electronic trainer’, the Rock and Roll – Smart Control, and also includes the Road Machine – Smart Control, a fixed-base version.

Each new trainer model features an electronically controlled resistance unit, a massive flywheel delivering the highest inertia of any smart trainer on the market, ultra-quiet operation, accurate and reproducible power data, and a realistic ride feel. The Smart Control Power Unit is also available separately and is the ideal upgrade for a wide range of existing Kinetic trainers.

Featuring connectivity with any Bluetooth Smart-compatible device, each Smart Control trainer is fully integrated with the next generation Kinetic Fit power-training app, delivering an immersive experience in the saddle with video integration and personalized power training.

Every Smart Control trainer or Power Unit purchase includes a free six-month Smart subscription to the Kinetic Fit app, where riders from beginner to pro can choose from more than 200 individual workouts and 28 specific training plans designed by professional coaches.

“Kinetic Smart Control trainers are designed to deliver cycling’s best, most realistic power-training workout and we couldn’t be more excited to unveil this new product line,” said Kinetic’s marketing manager, David Simpson. “When combined with the innovative Kinetic Fit app, Kinetic Smart Control trainers deliver a complete electronic power-training system that’s like having your own personal coach whenever you train.”

Kinetic will officially debut the new trainers at Eurobike (booth B4-303) from August 31 to September 2, and during Interbike (booth 7119) from September 21-23. The products are available now for pre-order for distributors and retailers and are scheduled to arrive in stores beginning in late September.
