OUR FLUID BIKE TRAINER with power meter lets you Train with power for top cycling performance
Now you can train just like the pros, measuring your cycling output – including watts, heart rate, speed, cadence, time and distance – to meet and exceed your personal cycling goals. The CASCADE FLUIDPRO POWER bike trainer takes their fluid trainer and incorporates a wireless power meter display, cadence and speed sensors. The addition of this accurate cycling feedback makes the FLUIDPRO POWER a great tool to help riders train more effectively.

“Hands down the Cascade Bike Trainer FluidPro Power is the perfect balance of value and performance”
I was curious about this head-to-head test, as I planned on using a trainer wheel with the right tire and leaving the Power Tap ready to roll outside. After running through a 60-minute workout the spread between the units was +/- 5w. This is incredible for a trainer with power for the price point. READ FULL TESTIMONIAL R Rakowitz

Review of Cascade Bike Trainers FluidPro Power
Training indoors isn't always easy - it takes a lot of discipline on the part of the cyclist, and also requires a lot in a trainer. Climate change and a work-family life balance can also force you inside a lot - which is what I found myself doing in the lead-up to the NYS ITT Championship and the Maccabi Games in Israel for 2013
BOOSTING YOUR FTP (FUNCTIONAL THRESHOLD POWER)*
This training workout is designed to help you improve your FTP – one of the single most important determinants of overall cycling performance.
Boosting your FTP (functional threshold power). Your FTP is like the foundation for everything you do in cycling. Want to hang in on a fast Saturday group ride and only make halfway now? Want to improve your time trialing or earn an upgrade to the next highest category? Raising your FTP is the first, most important, step to getting you there.
This workout assumes a basic level of endurance fitness—i.e. that you can comfortably ride for 90 minutes to two hours at an endurance pace of 16-18 mph on the road. If you’re not quite there yet, we suggest spending at least 2-3 weeks riding at such a pace for an hour or two, several times per week. Once you’re comfortable with that, return to this workout.
NOTE: you will need to know your FTP number for this workout. You can find the procedure for testing yourself here: http://perfprostudio.com/webhelp/studio/index.htm#page=FTP.htm
Total workout length: 50-60 minutes.
10 minutes warmup. Begin with 5 minutes spinning at 75-90rpm at power= <.56 FTP, then spin for 5 minutes more at .56-.75 FTP, with 3 x 30 seconds high cadence during the second five minutes (high cadence will be 90+ rpm).
over 30-60 seconds, gradually increase your power output to 90-105 percent of your FTP. Once it is there, maintain it for 6 minutes.
Once you’ve finished the 6 minutes, spin easily for 6 minutes at <.56 FTP. Then ramp back up to 90-105 percent of FTP for 6 minutes, followed by 6 minutes recovery again.
Now ramp back up for 4 minutes, followed by 4 minutes recovery, 4 minutes on again and 8 minutes easy spinning to finish the workout.
You can do this workout twice a week, but allow minimum 48 hours, better 72, between the repeats. Each week add 2 minutes to the first and subsequent hard efforts, but keep the recovery blocks the same until the first effort is 10 minutes. Then increase recovery by two minutes.
- Week One: Tuesday and Friday efforts are 6 minutes on, 6 off, 6 on, 6 off, 4 on, 4 off, 4 on, 8 easy, done.
- Week Two: Tuesday and Friday efforts are 8 minutes on, 6 off, 8 on, 6 off, 6 on, 4 off, 6 on, 8 easy spin.
- Week Three: Tuesday and Friday efforts are 10 minutes on, 8 off, 10 on, 8 off, 8 on, 6 off, 8 on, 8 easy spin.
about every fourth week you should pare down the volume and intensity to allow your body to respond maximally to the previous weeks’ efforts. In week 4 2-4 light intensity and endurance workouts of an hour each are the maximum. At the end of this week you’ll do one or two regular workouts to “open” your legs back up for the upcoming weeks of trying some new, shorter, more intense efforts.
Good luck and happy training!
