The Great:
  • Electronic Shifting Controls: There are 30 gears and customizable gear ratios to match your individual bike ride. This model is also equipped with a triple front chainring and 10 back derailleurs.
  • Pedals with Cages: For better grip and increased comfort, the pedals are designed with toe cages and straps.
  • Incline/Decline: The TDF Pro 5.0 is equipped with an incline/decline capability of 20% and multiple programs that will automatically adjust the incline/decline to achieve desired results. With these options, it’ easy to change up routes and train to your top potential.
  • Web-Enabled Touchscreen Display: A 10″ full-color touchscreen display, powered by Android, makes this trainer a tech-savvy model. The web-enabled console is also iFit compatible so if you have a subscription to this program, you can access tons of unique routes powered by Google Maps.
  • Multiple Workout Apps: Choose from 24 preset tour workout apps, which now feature stages from the 2015 Tour de France.
  • iFit Compatibility: If you have a subscription to the iFit program, you can enjoy access to your personally stored workout stats and tons of routes powered by Google Maps.
  • Power Meter Display: The Power Meter display is a unique built-in feature that is really helpful, especially if you are training for a race. The Power Meter displays your personal cycling performance with precision readouts and watts measurements, and then calibrates the power display to ensure precise readouts individualized to your performance.
  • Multiple Adjustable Features: This bike provides an adjustable saddle (which can be adjusted both horizontally and vertically) and handlebars, as well as adjustable leveling feet.
  • Wireless Heart Rate Monitoring: Using BLE wireless technology, this model is compatible with the hands-free BLE heart rate monitor, but the actual monitor is sold separately.




The Not-So-Great:
  • Warranty: The lifetime warranty coverage on the frame is nice, but the 3 years on parts and 1 year on labor is not.
  • Shipping Concerns: A few customers have experienced issues with shipping on this model, so be aware.
