Smooth and powerful Smart fluid hometrainer
Turno is the new trainer with direct drive and integrated fluid resistance technology, that has become part of the wide range of solutions offered by Elite for indoor training. Even more precise, silent and powerful, Turno represents the evolution of the Turbo Muin trainer from which it takes all the pros and strength points, going beyond, with the objective of growing and improving even further. In design and structure, Turno inherits all the characteristics of the top range trainers of the Elite collection; this gives it great stability and ease of use.
Use is simple and requires few steps. Just replace the back wheel of the bike with Turno and start your training managing the gear speeds as if you were pedalling on the road. The resistance progressively and automatically increases with the speed produced by the cyclist and the internal flywheel allows a pedalling roundness that matches the road experience perfectly. This type of trainer is characterized by the direct transmission of the power delivered by the cyclist, since the system is connected to the bicycle chain. Even if it can be used as a traditional trainer (you position the trainer, fix the bike and pedal freely), in comparison with its predecessor, Turno is born Smart, that is with the capacity of sending via wireless ANT + and Bluetooth communication protocol all the data produced during training. In fact, inside Turno, there is already the Misuro B+ Sensor that allows sending data such as speed, cadence and power, allowing the cyclist to monitor (on smartphone, tablet, cyclocomputer and compatible browsers, even using third parties’ and not just Elite’s Apps and software) his/her training and assess his/her performance. Precision is without doubt one of Turno’s strong points. The Misuro B+ Sensor in the trainer is calibrated ad hoc by Elite on each individual model, through a maximum precision ergometer. Every individual trainer produced is mapped and the power curves are saved on your Misuro B+ Sensor, correcting therefore any possible construction tolerances that there may be. This guarantees a precision never obtained before for a trainer that is not provided with a built-in power meter.
Turno’s is calculated and not measured power. This means that the trainer has no sensors detecting the power developed, but calculates it according to the bike speed. This would normally involve lower levels of precision, but in Turno this is counterbalanced by the calibration of every individual trainer and by the new algorithm, developed and tested by Elite’s R&D department, capable of taking into account the lowering in resistance that the trainer experiences because of heating, balancing the slight decrease in power, inherent in the product, that gradually takes place as the trainer heats up during use. Moreover, Turno has become even quieter, in fact the modifications in the hardware have caused a further reduction in noise level. This aspect is also important during training and increasingly more sought-after by people training indoors.
Turno is compatible with Elite’s My E-Training software and App, the virtual trainer compatible with all Elite trainers, available free for 12 months, but, as previously stated, is also compatible with third parties’ App and software. This allows using Turno with other indoor cycling platforms (that normally require a paid subscription), among which the well-known Zwift, TrainerRoad, The Sufferfest, Bikevo, Kinomap and others. Turno is a trainer designed and built on the basis of the requirements of traditional training that, thanks to Smart technology, allows you to enter the web cycling community, where professional training, fun, passion and social merge in just one solution.
Designed, developed and built following years of experience and also based on the feedback from professional cyclists with whom Elite cooperates, Turno is particularly indicated for those disciplined and demanding cyclists that want and know how to manage the rhythm, duration and intensity of their training autonomously, on the road as well as indoors. A highly professional trainer that, thanks to the modern technology applied, becomes also a tool with which you can enjoy yourself, matching the usefulness and effectiveness of the most traditional training with all the emotions of the web experience, with new challenges and online pedalling, alone or with either real or virtual friends.
