Elite launches adjustable smart frame with virtual shifting that rivals Zwift Ride

Déjà vu? Just like the Zwift Ride it attaches to a turbo trainer, but there are some key differences

Elite has launched Square, an adjustable smart frame that’s designed to accommodate multiple cyclists on one machine, and work with all direct-drive smart trainers and training apps. 

The design means there's no need to mount or switch bikes, with the frame offering seven adjustments for saddle height, tilt, and fore-aft position, handlebar height and fore-aft position, horizontal tube length, and crank arm length, enabling the rider to match the geometry of their regular bike. Square attaches to a direct-drive turbo trainer in a similar fashion to the recently released Zwift Ride and uses a single cog, eliminating the need for a cassette.
