CycleOps Hammer Direct Drive Trainer

The Hammer Direct Drive Trainer redefines indoor training to create the ultimate riding experience. One that's versatile enough to handle the most intense interval sessions as it is the easiest of recovery rides. Simply put, the Hammer is the perfect addition to any athlete's toolbox.

This direct drive style bike trainer eliminates the tire-to-roller contact, and is capable of replicating any outdoor ride from conversational group rides to rolling hills to pain face inducing 20% grades. All of this is done with a smooth, road-like-feel thanks to a massive 20 lb. precision-balanced flywheel that replicates real world inertia better than anyone else. Paired with our innovative, rapid response electromagnetic resistance system and you've got a bike trainer that can cover large resistance changes in a blink of an eye at a whisper quiet 64 decibels. Plus, the Hammer's revolutionary axle compatibility gives you the freedom to choose any thru-axle or quick release bike now and for years to come. Simply add a cassette, pop off your rear wheel, connect to your favorite virtual training software and prepare to Hammer away.

- Noise level at 20 mph is 64 decibels, quiet enough to ride in a library.
- PowerTuned using PowerTap technology for accurate power readings.
- Thru-axle compatible for bike frames with fork widths of 142 or 148.
- Quick-release compatible for bike frames with fork widths of 130mm and 135 mm.

- Direct drive design directly connects the bicycle to the resistance unit, eliminating tire wear.
- Integrated front wheel tray adds stability to ride without taking up any extra storage space.
- Internally cooling technology ensures accurate ride data even during the hardest of workouts.

              I love the direct drive feature, as well as the connectivity with training software, making the riding experience feel as realistic as possible. It's ALMOST as good as the real outdoor thing.

                The Hammer changes everything about indoor riding. Feels like the closest you can be to riding outside. Paired with Zwift or another App and it's absolutely a blast. Can't wait to see how my riding keep improving

                    Comments:

                    I have had my Hammer for a week now. I am very pleased. I compared the power meter with my Garmin Vector 2 pedals and the average power for a one hour ride on Zwift was 1 W different between the Hammer and the Vector Pedals. Virtual cycling has made indoor training fun instead of dreary and the Hammer has made virtual cycling as smooth as riding outdoors.
