CycleOps Hammer Direct Drive Trainer

The Hammer Direct Drive Trainer redefines indoor training to create the ultimate riding experience. One that's versatile enough to handle the most intense interval sessions as it is the easiest of recovery rides. Simply put, the Hammer is the perfect addition to any athlete's toolbox.

This direct drive style bike trainer eliminates the tire-to-roller contact, and is capable of replicating any outdoor ride from conversational group rides to rolling hills to pain face inducing 20% grades. All of this is done with a smooth, road-like-feel thanks to a massive 20 lb. precision-balanced flywheel that replicates real world inertia better than anyone else. Paired with our innovative, rapid response electromagnetic resistance system and you've got a bike trainer that can cover large resistance changes in a blink of an eye at a whisper quiet 64 decibels. Plus, the Hammer's revolutionary axle compatibility gives you the freedom to choose any thru-axle or quick release bike now and for years to come. Simply add a cassette, pop off your rear wheel, connect to your favorite virtual training software and prepare to Hammer away.

- Noise level at 20 mph is 64 decibels, quiet enough to ride in a library.
- PowerTuned using PowerTap technology for accurate power readings.
- Thru-axle compatible for bike frames with fork widths of 142 or 148.
- Quick-release compatible for bike frames with fork widths of 130mm and 135 mm.
- Integrated dual ANT+ FE-C and Bluetooth 4.0 technologies.
- Compatible with a wide variety of devices and virtual training application, including CycleOps VirtualTraining, Zwift, TrainerRoad and many more. Contact us with questions about compatibility with other software.
- 20 lb precision balanced flywheel provides quiet, vibration free and true-to-the-road riding experience.
- Fast response electromagnetic resistance ensure most responsive resistance and maximum power available.
- Robust design is capable of handling up to 2000 watts at 20 mph and can simulate up to a 20% climbing grade.
- Direct drive design directly connects the bicycle to the resistance unit, eliminating tire wear.
- Integrated front wheel tray adds stability to ride without taking up any extra storage space.
- Internally cooling technology ensures accurate ride data even during the hardest of workouts.
- Integrated front wheel tray adds stability to ride and nests within the trainer when not in use.
- Folding legs provide widest footprint of direct drive indoor bicycle trainers on the market for added stability and easy storage.

        There's a slight delay. Which is somewhat annoying. But otherwise it's a great machine and I hope to get a lot of use out of it this winter.

        So far, so good. But too early to tell since I've only used it twice. Only time will tell if this will hold up or fall apart as some reviews have mentioned.

          Upgraded from a Tacx Bushido and am very happy. Love being able to sync with training apps via my iPad plus connecting with other devices (HRM) to keep track of everything.

                With the benefit of hindsight I would have sought more support on initial set up. Still have a lack of certainty around use of a thru-axle.

                Comments:

                Having been a serious cyclist for a few years, though with a busy schedule and no trainer, my overall fitness and strength had somewhat stagnated. This is probably the single best purchase I have made in the way of producing gains as a cyclist. Nothing can replace "real-world" training, but the ability to run structured workouts that are automatically run via linked apps, is indispensable to me now. For the limited time I have to train, this is easily one of the best things available. Everything you've likely read by now about the benefits of the heavy freewheel and direct drive operation are completely true, and it has performed beautifully. A few quick notes: - I bought this specifically since I live in an apartment with wood floors, and for years, I have struggled to find an indoor training solution that was mindful for my neighbors, reduced noise, and ideally zero vibration that shakes the apartment/house. This accomplishes that, while it generally runs at around 60-70 decibels, and isn't exactly silent, the direct drive aspect all but eliminates vibration, which is critical. A little whine can be dealt with, but the vibration elimination is huge - I've had this for two weeks, and have run this exclusively with Zwift. I have read reports that when using ergometer mode in workouts, the responsiveness isn't exact, and I'd agree. Short efforts of intense wattages using ergo mode arent great (meaning, going from about 120 watts to 450+ watts for short (5-15 second) durations has a bit of lag and doesnt function all that great. HOWEVER, longer stretches of constant wattage output, the ergometer mode is SO NICE, and definitely works well. It's nice to just run a preset workout program, stick in one gear, and let the trainer change wattages for you. In short, the best upgrade you can make for cycling is improving the motor, you, and this is an incredible tool for that job, and is worth the price.
