CycleOps' Wind Trainer provides all the cardiovascular exercise you can handle. Heavy die-cast zinc fan blades double as a flywheel for smooth, progressive resistance. The faster you pedal, the harder your workout... just like riding your bike on the open road.
Great for light recovery in the evening after a hard work out. Also you can really get good resistance if looking to use it as a trainer in the winter, but you have to maintain focus while riding inside (its quite boring even with tv on), dont expect to do anything more than an hour on it. Also its very loud so if you live in an ampartment complex, like i do, sometimes the neihbors get angry. Overall, very good construction and can improve your fitness/technique considerablly.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
