The Hammer is a direct drive bike trainer with unparalleled bike compatibility and device connectivity. Bikes with thru-axle widths of 142 or 148, as well as quick release axle widths of 130 or 135 can be easily mounted to the Hammer, future-proofing compatibility for new bike purchases during the life of the trainer. Integrated dual ANT+ FE-C and Bluetooth 4.0 technologies connect The Hammer to more devices and riding applications, including popular training software such as CycleOps’ own VirtualTraining, Zwift, TrainerRoad and more for an immersive and entertaining ride.
Even more impressive is the Hammer’s ability to replicate real world inertia. The heart of the Hammer is its 9 Kilogram precision-balanced flywheel, while its soul is the innovative, fast responding electromagnetic resistance. The result is a direct drive trainer with rapid response resistance, maximum power and the sensation of rolling on smooth asphalt. Its robust design and direct frame-to-trainer contact allows the Hammer to stand up the toughest of riders, up to 2000 watts at 32 kph, and the ability to simulate grades up to 20%. Retail price for the Hammer is $1199.99 USD.
“We’ve been producing some of the best virtual trainers since the dawn of this technology,” says CycleOps President, Jeff Frehner. “We care deeply about providing the best, most entertaining bike training experience possible. We are excited to get the Hammer into the pain caves, basements and training spaces of all types of cyclists.”
