    Low resistance settings are too low

The bright green Magnetic trainer from Kinetic uses a classic A-frame design that provides plenty of stability.

Resistance adjustment comes from via what can only be described as a gear lever from a 1980s mountain bike. Low-end resistance is incredibly low - too low for the first four of the eight levels.

Resistance is sufficient at the upper end of the scale but the curve is very steep, something that only powerful riders will really appreciate.

The magnetic brake coupled with a steel roller is surprisingly quiet.
