Trainer resistance is available in fluid, wind, magnetic and electronic. Magnetic trainers are most common and have fixed levels of resistance. Fluid trainers have progressive levels of resistance; the harder you pedal, the more resistance they provide. Wind trainers tend to be very noisy, as they generate their resistance from a fan. Electronic trainers require a power source and can often provide the most powerful and precise levels of resistance. They sometimes can include virtual reality interfaces for a more interactive experience.
Interactive Smart trainers have sensors which will transmit speed, cadence or power to smart phones, tablets or other devices. Not only that, but the communication is two-way, which allows special software packages to control the resistance levels on the trainer for an immersive experience.This allows you to use your trainer with popular software packages like Zwift, Rouvy, Trainer Road, Strava, the Sufferfest and more.
