The Hammer Direct Drive Trainer redefines indoor training to create the ultimate riding experience. One that's versatile enough to handle the most intense interval sessions as it is the easiest of recovery rides. Simply put, the Hammer is the perfect addition to any athlete's toolbox.

This direct drive style bike trainer eliminates the tire-to-roller contact, and is capable of replicating any outdoor ride from conversational group rides to rolling hills to pain face inducing 20% grades. All of this is done with a smooth, road-like-feel thanks to a massive 20 lb. precision-balanced flywheel that replicates real world inertia better than anyone else. Paired with our innovative, rapid response electromagnetic resistance system and you've got a bike trainer that can cover large resistance changes in a blink of an eye at a whisper quiet 64 decibels. Plus, the Hammer's revolutionary axle compatibility gives you the freedom to choose any thru-axle or quick release bike now and for years to come. Simply add a cassette, pop off your rear wheel, connect to your favorite virtual training software and prepare to Hammer away.

- Noise level at 20 mph is 64 decibels, quiet enough to ride in a library.
- PowerTuned using PowerTap technology for accurate power readings.
- Thru-axle compatible for bike frames with fork widths of 142 or 148.
- Quick-release compatible for bike frames with fork widths of 130mm and 135 mm.

    Paired with Zwift. Easy to set up though I recommend a bike shop to install the cassette and then tune the rear derailleur for optimal performance. Consistent trouble free experience. Easy management with firmware upgrades.

          Made the leap to the smart trainer. Was looking at the Kickr, but got the Hammer because it was in stock at my LBS. I've been very happy with it and glad that I ended up with the Hammer. Easy to set up and store... I move it after use and the bike can actually stand vertically while attached, saving space. Everything worked out of the box and I've mostly been using Zwift. Very quiet compared to my old Kurt Kinetic wheel on fluid trainer. If doing a race on Zwift, it may be a little too loud to watch tv, but regular rides and ERG workouts are fine... don't even need to put on subtitles. Love the 20lb fly wheel and don't find the weight of the unit too much for taking with me when travelling (it also packs smaller in the car than my Kinetic due to the shape and folding legs). I rode my Kinetic about 8 hours a year because it was so boring and inconvenient (noise, wheel slip, manual resistance changes via shifting etc..), so far I've put 9-12hrs a week on the Hammer and look forward to it. Only con is that I use it on a Macbook Air and Rouvy doesn't have a Mac version yet. Not a big deal as I just update the firmware from my phone. Had it for 3 months so far and am very happy with it.

                I have used the product for several weeks. I had some strange noise cranking issues when I was riding at greater than 9% grade. Other than that, it has worked fine.
