What is Zwift? A quick review:
Saris M2 review, Cycling Plus magazine, January 2020:
"The folding 'A' framed M2 is a budget trainer that provides a good introduction into the world of interactive training.
This unit has internally integrated speed, cadence and power data, eliminating the need for any extra external sensors. It has integrated dual ANT+ FE-C and Bluetooth for easy connectivity and works with all the third-party software packages.
It offers up to 1500 watts of resistance. Changes of resistance are impressive for a trainer of this price. We found power levels to be pretty accurate and within Saris's suggested 5 per cent accuracy. This unit can simulate up to 15 per cent gradient.
The ride is solid without feeling overly harsh but it's never going to have the feeling of a direct-drive trainer. It is noisier than any of the direct-drive units here too."
Small price, big resistance
