Bring your indoor workouts to new heights with the Ascent Fluid Trainer - the perfect purveyor of quiet, smooth resistance on a rock solid frame. The fluid resistance unit provides a progressive, high intensity workout that will have you feeling the burn in no time. That's the beauty of the fluid unit - there's no need to worry about clamping a lever to your handlebars to adjust resistance as you simply use your bike's gears plus vary your pedaling RPMs to vary the workout intensity. It really does replicate what it feels like to ride outside! And it's quiet enough that you can enjoy whatever media you prefer while training without having to jack up the decibels to overcome an incessant, irksome drone.

It comes fully assembled out of the box, so just put the skewer in your rear wheel (the included rear skewer is optimized to fit into the fluid trainer's support cups - what you have already may not fit), clamp your bike into the frame and start pedaling away. This fluid trainer is perfect for indoor training at home when weather or lack of daylight puts a damper on riding outdoors and it's also portable enough to be the perfect means for getting warmed-up and ready to rock at a race.

Features: 

  • Fluid resistance unit utilizes a steel flywheel to create a smooth, road-like feel for your indoor cycle training workouts
  • Steel frame folds to a compact size making it easy to store or transport
  • Rubber feet dampen noise and vibration
  • Includes a steel quick release skewer
*Note: Fits rear axle sizes up to 135mm

Ascent Fluid Indoor Bicycle Trainer
This is just my OPINION, so please take it with a grain of salt:

Pros: It's quiet.

Cons: Having ridden a Mag trainer for many years, I simply did not like the FEEL of the fluid trainer. IN MY OPINION, my old Mag actually FELT like riding on the road--I was able to simulate the same approximate speeds for what felt like an equivalent amount of effort on my part. The Mag felt natural to me. The fluid trainer did NOT feel natural to me at all. I honestly disliked it right away, as it was much more of a leg strength workout and less of a cardio workout. This feeling did NOT go away after a few minutes. I gave it a good long 30 minute ride (a couple of times), but the feeling of working MUCH harder and going MUCH slower simply never subsided.

Hope someone finds this helpful.

This trainer is great. It’s basic, but it’s solidly built. Even when sprinting or standing, there’s zero movement or flex. The ride feel smooths out after 5-10 minutes once the liquid heats up. Overall, I’m very pleased with this trainer.

It’s a pretty good trainer. The pros are: quiet, easy to setup solid feel. Cons: the tire is positioned near the edge of the roller, no front wheel stabilizer. Of these the only real concern is the tire position.
It is like most fluid type trainers in that it has a road feel. It takes very little effort to set it up with the proper force on the wheel. Overall I’d recommend this trainer

No-Frills trainer that works fine and isn't too noisy. I can get some exercise in without waking the family up in the morning.

I thought it was priced reasonably. When it arrived it took me literally 10 minutes to get it out of the box to riding my bike. I was very surprised at how smooth the ride is. And I like the fact that I can run through my gears just as if I were on the road.
There are no special attachments other than the skewer that comes with the trainer that they provide. Also this folds up quite nicely and I can put it in the hall closet or under a bed. I also like the fact that it seems well-constructed and doesn't wobble even when I get out of the saddle.The Ascent AS-FL13 is quite as well.I give it a five-star.

This is my very first trainer, so I'm not experienced enough to give a great review. I wish it had some kind of resistance adjustment but it does the job and for the price it's a very very good deal!

So far so good. Only had it for a week, but it seems sturdy and is much quieter than my previous fluid trainer and the price is right.
