Support App: myETraining

Elite’s support apps are a bit confusing, because they use their main app (myETraining) for calibration, and a second app for firmware updates. 

Download Upgrado for Android or iOS

The myETraining app is quite powerful, although Zwifters probably won’t use any of its features beyond calibration.

OKish trainer from Egg Shaped Fred September 9, 2020 

Positives.
1) Trainer feels quite nice when pedalling due to the oil resistance.
2) Has been reliable in over 2 years of use.
3) Cheaper than most smart trainers.
4) Feels quite stable.
5) Fairly quiet in operation.
6) Big heavy fly wheel.

Negatives
1) Slow to react to power changes in Erg mode, so brief sprints of 20 seconds of less are not really doable .
2) Calibration with app doesn't work, so I have to use a stages power meter to get accurate power data and to control the trainer with.
3) The power numbers are not close to reality, you have to physically change the band resistance in order to get the trainer to report similar AV power over a ride as the stages power meter.
4) Elite technical support isn't very good, they're not interested in older trainers they have sold.
5) Firmware updates never happen for older trainers.
6) After an hour or so it can become clanky noisey and you have to briefly back pedal, no biggie though.
7) Not easy to move about.

Elite Real Turbo Muin B+ from Rjt75 September 9, 2020 

For a trainer that is now approaching 3 years old, it has performed very well. very sturdy and solidly built and fairly maintanence free. My only critisism would be the Elite website for updates which is quite difficult to use and not particularly user friendly. Overall a great trainer that has lasted without any issues.

Solid Trainer from sjhime September 8, 2020 

I've had this trainer for about 6 years and it has been very solid. The only issue I had was about a year ago when something happened to the computer board. Elite sent me a new board and I was up an running (riding) in no time. The only con I have is that the power numbers are off by quite a bit sometimes.
