1 year of Zwift twice weekly has trashed the unit. Was thrilled with the unit until loud grinding noises along with chips of metal from its flywheel recently ruined my opinion of this otherwise perfect training tool. Balancing out of saddle under hill resistance was thrilling. Will be missed
I think this product is a lot of fun! If you like rollers, definitely recommend it. It's fun to use with zwift and trainer road. It is challenging if you're new to rollers. If you're looking for entry level rollers, probs just get the quick motion rollers elite makes. If you really enjoy rollers, or just have money to burn and enjoy using interactive cycling software like Zwift or TrainerRoad, this is a lot of fun. Power is not SUPER accurate if you're using the native power reading from the rollers, BUT if you've got a power meter on your bike, it'll be no problem. (Or if you don't really care about power accuracy)
I had the same experience as the other reviewer - the unit started making loud grinding sounds and fine pieces of metal started coming out of it after only a few months of use (5-7 days a week). It's a shame, because it was a great trainer. I hope Elite figures out these problems and comes out with a new version. And to their credit, they gave me a complete refund. The two year warranty is great.
