Kurt Kinetic  R1 Direct-Drive Trainer

DC Rainmaker First Look: Kinetic R1 Direct Drive Trainer In some ways, the R1 is the culmination of many different pieces at Kinetic finally coming together into one cohesive package. Sure, they've been doing rollin trainers for years, but never direct drive ones. And they've been doing smart controllable trainers for years, but never on fully open ANT+ & Bluetooth Smart standards. The R1 takes all of those pieces and now makes a product that's very clearly targeting likely a different market than their previous efforts.
