Minoura's 540 uses an H-frame and a magnetic unit with a steel roller that is noticeably quiet.
Set-up is uncomplicated and even though there is no cam lever on the brake unit, the adjuster can be tuned to quickly set the tension on the tyre.
With seven levels of resistance from the large handlebar lever the 540 has enough varied resistance for recovery to hard interval sessions.
Minoura's 540 is compatible with a Live Training app that is downloadable to your iPhone for a small fee to help improve your training.
