Kurt Kinetic’s R1 smart trainer is designed with natural side-to-side movement to replicate road ride-feel when riding static, almost unique for a direct drive trainer. This overcomes two of the most common complaints about turbo trainers: The rigidity that can lead to long rides becoming very uncomfortable; and the lack of real-road feel. You can adjust the level of flex to suit you. 

On the downside, DC Rainmaker wasn’t overly impressed with the power accuracy – struggling to achieve the claimed +/- 3% variance. Bike Radar clocked noise levels of 75db, louder than competitors such as the Tacx Neo 2 or the Wahoo Kicker – but still significantly quieter than the typical wheel-on trainer. 

It also requires a little more effort to set up than similar trainers, with a 20 minute calibration process to run through before first use.  

This model was released in late 2018 so there are some significant discounts available against RRP.
