Elite has bolstered its turbo trainer ecosystem with a ‘Riser’ that lifts the front of the bike, to replicate climbs as well as providing handlebar movement for a natural ride feel.

Similar to the Wahoo Kickr Climb, and the movement of the Wahoo Kickr smart bike, the Riser (£824.99/$1,099.99) can lift a rider up to mirror the slopes, boasting up to 20 per cent up and 10 per cent downhill capabilities.
