Bike training at home (indoor cycling) is a great way to stay fit when time is limited, or weather conditions prevent riding in the great outdoors. Cycling training at home offers many advantages. This allows you to escape bad weather, for example, when it becomes dangerous outside due to snow and ice. Indoor cycling is perfect for completing structured workouts and intervals that would be difficult to do outside due to natural obstacles and traffic conditions.
In the search for the right training equipment, more and more athletes are choosing the JetBlack Volt ™, an affordable electromagnetic indoor smart trainer designed for performance-oriented training at home.
The JetBlack Volt ™ Trainer comes with a pre-mounted 11-speed cassette. It is extremely quiet and offers an exceptional riding experience. The Trainer is compatible with many training apps and ready to go: mount the bike, connect, ride.
Since the end of November, you can rent the JetBlack Volt ™ in a 3-month subscription for 69.95€ per month instead of buying it. The smart indoor trainer can be connected to all common online platforms such as Zwift, Rouvy or Bkool via ANT+ or Bluetooth. With the subscription, you can find out without risk whether this type of training is something for you. Because the subscription is not automatically renewed after the three months.
If the road bike of the rider is already equipped with a Shimano or SRAM 11-speed circuit, one would also need to worry about purchasing a cassette or other freewheel body for the axis of the trainer. Buying these types of equipment is currently quite complicated due to the high demand for bike components. The Volt is delivered pre-assembled with an 11-speed cassette. Optionally, you could convert the setup to 10-speed. A corresponding spacer is supplied – as well as the JetBlack Turn Riser Block. An accessory to the JetBlack Volt ™, which you put under the front wheel. This can cushion shocks and movements during training, reducing not only the load on the wheel but also on the body.
Additionally, the rider can also benefit from the Bluetooth bridging feature of the JetBlack Volt. It would allow the athlete to connect their heart rate chest strap directly to the smart indoor trainer instead of connecting it to the training platform like Zwift each time. Instead, the belt is paired with the Volt once via the JetBlack app, and then the trainer takes over transmitting heart rate data to the training platform. An added benefit: One less Bluetooth connection interferes with the trainer setup.
The offer is exciting if the rider prefers to train outdoors and should only be forced to train indoors because of adverse weather conditions. If you have a taste for it and want to be prepared for bad weather in the summer, you can take over the trainer at the takeover price after the 3-month subscription expires.
