CycleOps Phantom 5 Indoor CycleCycleOps Phantom 5 Indoor Cycle

You demand a great bike fit. You expect a highly effective workout. You want the most realistic ride possible. In essence, you want every aspect of your indoor cycle to duplicate the experience of riding outdoors.

The CycleOps Phantom 5 Indoor Cycle is what you are looking for.

Stocked with four points of micro-adjustments, a controlled resistance unit and a frame suited for Tour de France stage-ending sprints, the Phantom 5 is built for top professional athletes — yet easily adaptable for any level of rider. Plus, the onboard PowerTap power meter lets you know exactly how hard you're working.

The CycleOps Phantom 5 Indoor Cycle is at the top of the indoor training chart. This is because its seamless integration with CycleOps' revolutionary VirtualTraining program allows you to recreate the effect of an outdoor ride and become your own test subject by tailoring the conditions of a virtual outside world in your own living room.

Having the ultimate of data tracking, virtual terrain options, and training plans comprised by CycleOps' VirtualTraining program is amazing. The set-up is simple all you have todo is plug the included Ant+ USB stick into your computer, tablet, or device, and then you have to download the VirtualTraining program.

The Phantom 5 doesn't include a computer because it's designed to work solely through VirtualTraining. If you're looking for an indoor trainer that doesn't require an additional device and program, check out the Phantom 3, which offers all of the data but without the quick connection to VirtualTraining.

The Phantom 5 shares the Phantom 3's compatibility with most Garmin Ant+ and PowerTap products, but it adds Bluetooth Plus to up the ante even more. The range of data collection means that, though, we've mostly focused on its winter applications as a foul-weather friend, the Phantom's precise metric gathering (an industry-leading +/- 1.5%) makes it an ideal platform for a regimen that lets you manage all of the external variables for training or testing your form, regardless of the conditions outside. The beauty of indoor cycling is there are no wind or road obstacles to skew your times.

With the CycleOps Phantom 5 Indoor Cycle is a free, two-week trial of CycleOps VirtualTraining. You can actually create your own virtual training route to celebrate summer on your favorite local loop all winter long.

The Phantom's fit is adjustable at four points. The saddle moves fore and aft and the seatpost can be raised and lowered. The handlebars receive the same treatment: fore and aft, up and down. Your saddle and pedals can be swapped  from road bike to stationary cycle.

The CycleOps Phantom 5 Indoor Cycle frame is made of steel, the old standby, and the base consists of a pair of steel chevrons with adjustable feet for a stable platform whether you're mashing, grinding, or just virtual-noodling. Its 48-pound flywheel is situated at the rear, so you don't gum it up with sweat. (We still recommend having a fan set up nearby, because you also don't want to gum-up anything else.) The handlebar-mounted bottle holders will keep you supplied with plenty of water to sweat out, and CycleOps' inclusion of a freewheel means you can literally coast during virtual descents.

CycleOps VirtualTraining

Virtual Training let's you ride anywhere in the world with nothing but your bike, compatible stationary trainer and a ANT+ or Bluetooth Smart enabled speed & cadence sensor. Virtual Training will calculate your power output based on your speed, the profile of the course and the type of trainer you're using. For even more control over your ride pair Virtual Training to any ANT+ or Bluetooth Smart compatible power meter or controlled resistance trainer such as the CycleOps PowerBeam Pro or the Wahoo Kickr.

Your subscription includes streaming access to hundreds of video routes or thousands of GPS profiles in the Virtual Training library. Select a pacer to keep you on track or try out a new race strategy on your favorite course. Custom interval courses (workouts) can also be created with targeted power, % FTP, % Grade outputs, synchronized with SufferFest videos and each ride is shared with the Virtual Training community so you can see how you stack up against other Virtual Training users.
