The "easy" home trainer with magnetic resistance. Novo Force is a high performing classic home trainer. It features a very compact magnetic resistance unit. Its design has been renewed compared to other models in its category and features a sturdy frame with very innovative features.
Stable and safe
Novo frame ensures great safety and stability during use. The frame features a modern and innovative design where sturdy steel structures integrate cutting-edge plastic materials
It's a magnetic resistance unit with 8 levels that can be set via a practical handlebar selector. The new 8 resistance levels system offers a wide range of power output. This way the cyclist can choose among a wide selection of training sessions, ranging from agility-based to power-based even at low speed.
It's a very simple yet versatile home trainer, ideal for a wide range of needs and destined to a wide audience. You can freely conduct many types of training sessions in a professional and effective way. Just mount your bike on the home trainer and start pedalling without worrying about anything else.
Quick initial setup. The Fast Fixing system lets you operate a practical lever to hook and unhook the bike with one simple movement. Just mount your bike and start pedalling. The new adjustable unit support system allows for a constant pressure between unit roller and tyre.
By employing the Misuro B+ The NOVO FORCE home trainer can become compatible with My E-Training and third party apps
No more boring training sessions! Training on NOVO FORCE becomes a new, exciting and stimulating experience.The MISURO B+ sensor processes speed and cadence data to send to compatible apps/devices/computers.
The red roller where the wheel leans on is made in Elastogel material, the exclusive polyurethane compound developed and tested by Elite.
This improves tyre adherence, moreover it decreases the noise coming from the roller/tyre friction by 50% and tyre consumption by 20%.

Elite Novo Force Hometrainer
Well I never knew indoor training can be this much fun, although going out in fresh air is a dream for all the cyclists, but with Elite Novo Force, all I wanted to evaluate was my ability to stay indoor and ride. And to be honest, I'm pretty happy with the product so far, using it with power sensor (Misuro B+) to make the trainer smart and for heart rate monitor, I'm using my OP watch.
Comes with one month free-trial of My eTraining app, after one month it's 20 odd pounds (but really worth it) and I have exhausted my Zwift 1 week free trial also (or 21km) - $14pm for then on, but decided to continue with Elite's app for now.
You can create your own own routes or download live videos, to ride on those roads.
Elevator Gel Block is must I'd suggest - go for one (riser block) if you're buying any trainer, helps in keeping you bike stable and gives you the real balance as if you're riding on actual roads.
The magnetic resistance works like charm, currently running on with Road Tires on, as all the trainer tires are out of stock. You'll lose somewhat of your tire compound initially fairly quickly, but after 15days or so it wont be as visible as in starting 15 days, if you're riding with your roadies on.
As for magnetic resistance, the feel is actually good - the rolling resistance allows you to simulate different terrain and data collected is actually close enough to my actual timings on road circuits. And the inertia will keep the tire rolling for a more meters even when you stop pedaling.
Would like to highly recommend this product to someone who's looking forward to buy an indoor trainer, but still not sure how it works or someone who's still a beginner and indoor training is something new to you. Get a Misuro B+ smart sensor with it if you want to make the most of this trainer.
As for Cyclop, I would highly rate my shopping experience, even in complete lockdown I was able to receive my shipment within 2-3 days securely packed in, that's some commitment. (Looking forward to order a trainer tire whenever it's back in stock). 5* for Cyclops and their shipping partner (Fedex and Shiprocket/Delhivery).
For assembly DIY (although it's as simple as solving jigsaw puzzle ):
