JetBlack's first electronic trainer is self-powered and 'super quiet'

Published May 10, 2017

ROUSE HILL, Australia (BRAIN) — JetBlack has launched its first electronic trainer, the WhisperDrive Smart Trainer. Unlike most electronic trainers, the new WhisperDrive is self-powered and actually contains a battery that is charged during use and can be used to charge cell phones or other devices.

The company says the trainer starts up in less than one pedal stroke. 

The wheel-off design provides a solid connection with no tire wear. It was designed to be used with JetBlack's mobile app, available for iOS and Android. The app allows users to wirelessly adjust the trainer resistance and view power, speed and cadence while riding. In addition, users can build and share custom training sessions or ride any Strava segment from the app.

The trainer has dual Bluetooth Smart and ANT+ wireless connectivity and will integrate with third party platforms such as Zwift, Fulgaz, Kinomaps and many more. It has simulation, ERG and resistance modes.

The company said the trainer is "super quiet and ultra-smooth, providing a realistic road-like feel, with resistance up to 1,600 watts."

JetBlack's director of global sales and research & development, Trent Fitzgibbins, said, "We are pumped to launch our first smart trainer. It represents the next level in technology and gives cyclists the opportunity to fine tune their training and technique to the smallest detail."
