Volano/TurboRoteo is a "Direct Drive" "Fluid" trainer, the resistance changes concerning the speed variation, and it has included the powermeter.
This is a graph of powers created by the Volano in relation to the speed of pedaling:
A specific explanation of how a fluid trainer works can be found at this link ( Fluid trainer )
The internal trainer board transmits wirelessly using ANT + and/or Bluetooth Smart protocols the values of:
- Measured speed
- Calculated cadence
- Measured power
Any app/software/device ( such as a cycle-computer ) which uses ANT+ and/or Bluetooth Smart protocols may receive the data listed above without altering the resistance.
