First Look: LeMond Fitness Revolution Trainer
Just in time for winter riding season here in the US, the LeMond Revolution indoor bike trainer has landed and ready for review. With bad, cold, dreary weather looming, we expect to get a lot of use out of this trainer to keep the winter legs from settling in and ruining spring epics. With the LeMond Revolution’s unique direct mount system, it integrates directly with your drivetrain to create an “on the bike” experience with a resistance fan leading the way as you shift through the gears.
The LeMond Revolution Overview and Specs
Introducing the LeMond Revolution, a direct-drive bike trainer that integrates directly with your bike’s drive train. By simply removing your rear wheel and slipping the trainer into your dropouts, it replaces the need for mushy, slippery tire-to-roller connections, while eliminating wheel and tire wear and tear.
Realistic Road Feel
The Revolution features High-Inertia Technology (HIT), designed with a large, weighted fly wheel that mimics the inertia of a rolling bicycle. The Revolution spins freely when the pedals aren’t engaged, and delivers progressive wind resistance similar to real-world conditions.
Ease of Use and Cost Savings
The Revolution fits all road bikes and works seamlessly with your mountain bike or winter-specific cross bike. Simply remove the back wheel, attach the rear dropouts to the spindle and go. No more tire slippage and wear, front wheel blocks or unstable platforms. Plus save $50 to $100 a year by not having to replace worn out rear tires.
Choice of Pros
The LeMond Revolution is the official bike trainer of Team Garmin-Transitions. Tested by riders like Dave Zabriskie, Christian Vande Velde and Tyler Farrar in the harshest and most competitive cycling environment.
2 Models to Choose From
The LeMond Revolution can be ordered direct from LeMond Fitness – sold with or without a SRAM/SHIMANO compatible cassette.
