Elite Turno

Elite Turno Direct Drive Trainer

The Turno is classified as a smart home trainer "not interactive" by Elite, meaning it detects wattage but is not controllable. So you'll get accurate numbers from its built-in Misuro B+ sensor, but you won't feel gradient changes or be able to run in ERG mode. It's also a direct-drive fluid trainer, which is a rare thing indeed.

The Turno is basically the "evolution" of the Turbo Muin line, which were also fluid direct-drive trainers.

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.

Elite Turno from Libor Tomáš September 9, 2020 

Elite Turno, ač na první pohled vypadá hodně plastově, plasty jsou pevné, bytelné, neskřípou. Možnost rychlého nasazení jak silničního kola, tak i bike. Není zde připojení k elektrické zásuvce, tudíš trenažer funguje jen jako odporová jednotka, čím jedete rychleji, tím větší odpor. A tady vidím trochu problém, pokud chcete trenažer provozovat v bytě panelového domu. Watty jsou zde měřeny přes Misuro Smart B+ a čím více wattů, tím rychleji se musí pohybovat setrvačník, tím větší hlučnost. Sice trenažer Elite Turno je jeden z velice tichých, ale například ve večerních hodinách je to slyšet u sousedů. Cca rychlost 33-35km/h = 260-290W = 75dB

Elite Turno from MichiR September 8, 2020 

It works well and doesn't need calibration. The Turno is really quiet and perfect for a low budget. If one doesn't mind that it doesn't have ERG mode and doesn't change resistance or is a really good choice.
