Elite Drivo II from xturer September 10, 2020 

Easy installation and connection to Zwift. In ERG mode for workouts is a extremly slow. Accuracy compared to Garmin Vector Duo is + 8% more !!! (not accepted as a dealer exchange complaint). No other issue in about 100 hours of use.

Elite Drivo II review from Lancashire Larry September 9, 2020 

Was easy to assemble and get going for use with Zwift. Difficult to get level balanced to prevent support legs rocking - however, this does not seem to affect actual use of the trainer. In use it is solid and has reassuring feel when out of the saddle giving it some. Power readings are consistent and I think that the lag between Zwift and the trainer is due to poor broadband connection rather than anything else. Have had about six months so I would estimate around 2000miles of riding and no issues.

The trainer reacts fast during sim rides. The uphills and downhills are instantly on Zwift. Erg mode can be tricky under 10s sprints but good enough for interval training. Unit is reliable and it always works. I use my trainer in Bluetooth mode.

Overkill, but so good! from MattyP August 27, 2020 

The most accurate trainer on the market, I’ll never stress it to it’s maximum capability, but it stresses me to mine.
