Elite trainers are for the dedicated cyclists amongst us, who don't let climatic variables scupper their professional training regime. Fix your bike to an Elite trainer on a stormy day and replicate your would-be outdoor ride, minus the numb face and frozen fingertips, in your living room. With Elite trainers, you can always ride your bike - no need to buy a cycle ergometer which can unnecessarily take up space in the home. Elite trainers allow you to train every day, for the times when outdoor cycling isn't ideal. Elite trainers are also used as warm up mechanisms, which can be stowed away in a pack and used again at the finish line to cool down.
