“IT’S EXTREMELY DURABLE”
I use my Cascade trainer regularly for warming up at Cross and Road races. It’s extremely durable, stable and easy to set up. It also sees some garage time through the PNW winter months when it’s just too wet to ride. It’s a great all purpose tool.
“THE CASCADE FLUIDPRO IS AWESOME”
When I shift the CASCADE FLUIDPRO, it maintains a real road feel. And, there’s a really good diversity – the difference between the little and big ring is just perfect. I can stand in the big ring and go as hard as I want, and then shift down and get a spin. It’s awesome. Seriously. Good resistance on the high end and spin resistance on the low end.

“THIS TRAINER I REALLY LIKE”
I’m a professional triathlete attempting to live the dream. Whether that be racing, climbing mountains, or enjoying a cold one after a hard days work. I have raced triathlon for several years and it has become a huge part of my life. I also enjoy coaching other endurance athletes
The Cascade FluidPro feels very real to the road. It’s smooth and consistent. It’s not coming and going. Some trainers I like and some I don’t, but this one, I really like.

“IT’S A GREAT VALUE”
The Cascade FluidPro is great value. It’s lower priced than other trainers. However, the benefits are much more. You get a riser block that comes with it. And as far as build quality goes, it’s as good or better than anything on the market.
“IT’S SO QUIET”
What I especially like about the Cascade FluidPro is how quiet it is. I can be at my house, on my bike, and not disturb anybody else. I had a friend that bought a trainer, and her husband made her take it back, because it was too loud. It’s really easy to use and I love the simplicity of it.
“I LIKE THE QUICK CONNECT FEATURE”
I like the quick connect feature. I just put it in, connect it, and off I go. It doesn’t take a lot of prep work. This is great when I’m racing, as I put my bike in over and over again.
“IT’S SO EASY TO USE”
What I like about the Cascade FluidPro is just exactly how easy it is to use. In the past I’m twisting knobs and dials and it takes me forever to dial my bike in to get it to sit straight. With the Cascade Fluid Pro – once I’ve set it for my bicycle, all I need to do is put it down and click the lever in place.
It’s solid, it’s stable, and it feels like you’re riding on the road.
“MUCH BETTER THAN OTHER TRAINERS I’VE USED”
Compared to other trainers that I’ve used, the Cascade Fluid trainer has a much more stable base. It’s more solid. It doesn’t rock around. The clamping of the bicycle into the trainer is also very easy, with a cam lever. It’s significantly better than other trainers– including the good design, the stability, ease of use, quietness and how it folds up and packs small.
“I WOULD ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND IT”
The Cascade Fluid Pro feels like you’re riding on the road. You can change your gears, and I can stand up, which is great. I can put it in a really heavy gear and I can ride standing up, which replicates some steep hills that I would have to ride. I love the feel of it and the ease of use. It’s a huge asset to someone who does triathlons, because the bike part is such a huge part of the event. I would absolutely recommend it.
“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 the Full Testimonial
