Select Elite Category
This is a good product to store tubes, CO cartridges, etc. if you don't want to use a saddle bag and if you have a spare water bottle cage to put it in. I got the largest size offered and I have a 32mm tube, 2 CO cartridges plus adaptor and multipurpose tool and it was a tight fit. If you want to ride with a saddlebag but use this as a back for snacks, keys, etc then you can probably go with a smaller size. It's sturdier than a saddlebag but the biggest considerations to give when getting this will be what are you carrying in it and do you have a second (or third) bottle cage to carry it in. I use this on my gravel bike and have two cages, if I want to ride with a second bottle then I'll either need to add another cage or revert back to a saddle bag for the ride.
The Elite Suito-T trainer was appealing due to its compact and comparatively light weight. I needed a trainer which I can store out of the way, and is easy to move. The Suito-T is not much heavier than some wheels-on trainers, yet is much lighter than other smart trainers. I've only had the trainer three months, so only more time will tell how durable it is. I started by using Zwift to control the trainer, however, I switched to using my Garmin watch, since I don't really need a gamified experience on the trainer. I am merely running through a progression of resistance settings over 20-40 minutes. Use of trainer supplements my other activities (running, skiing, paddling), as I am not a racer and I do not need the social media aspect of most training apps. If you're looking for a smart trainer that is not bulky, heavy and cumbersome to move around, this might work for you.
I think the Elite Suito-T used to come with one free month of Zwift, though it no longer appears to be the case. Also, the Elite app is worthless, or requires some special knowledge to unlock its greatness. That said, I got the Elite Suito-T for two reasons: 1. It's the only smart trainer at its price point (and above) that weighs 32 pounds and easily stores against my wall, or in a coat closet. No other trainer of its kind does this. And I think it does this because it's Italian. In the USA, we apparently all have tons of space and don't live in apartments. Are you listening Garmin/Tacx, Wahoo, and Zwift?! Probable not. 2. The Suito-T has mostly good reviews, especially if you're going to connect with Zwift, Garmin, or other 3rd party apps. I don't have a ton of time on this trainer, and so far have only used it with Zwift, where I can record my Zwift sessions to Garmin and Strava, and control the trainer with my Garmin watch. So, my first impressions are good. Just hope it lasts me a while, since nobody else is making smart trainers with the same form factor, and I would not be surprised to see Elite discontinue the Suito-T soon, if they haven't already.
I really like this bottle, it flows great, is soft enough to squeeze, lid doesnï¿½t leak at all (no drink mix leaking leading to sticky hands). The top pulls apart really easy to fully clean and while the upper indent is small it has a square edge that hooks into bottle cages and keeps bottles secure even on rough gravel
