SARIS MP1 NFINITY TRAINER PLATFORM

Indoor training has undergone something of a renaissance in the past year or so. Virtual training software is hitting its stride and an ever-growing number of brands is trying to make the experience as realistic as possible. One of the most intriguing solutions—which uses no electronics at all—will have you looking forward to trainer time. Compatible with nearly any trainer, the Saris MP1 Nfinity trainer platform uses Saris’ Nfinity Technology to move both side to side and fore and aft, creating an immersive ride quality most similar to the real thing. And there are benefits beyond ride feel as well. The platform’s movement reduces pressure on touch points and recruits more muscles throughout the body, resulting in more comfortable, higher quality training sessions.

ELITE STERZO SMART

Take your indoor training to a whole new level this winter with the Elite Sterzo steering block. This electronic plate sits under your front wheel during trainer sessions and introduces movement into your ride, up to 34 degrees left or right, allowing you to steer in compatible virtual training programs like Strava. Overtake riders or position yourself in their draft for a new level of immersion in your virtual rides. And even though it’s electronic, you don’t have to worry about recharging constantly, because a single AAA battery has you set for about 500 hours. Plus, it accommodates tires up to 56mm wide, so go ahead and use your road, gravel or even mountain bike.
