The Cosmos is the ultimate standalone training machine. A super power trainer for professional riders and amateurs who want to get the maximum out of their training in a scientific way. This high-end ergotrainer is designed with a very powerful, revolutionary braking system enabling extra hard training sessions. For example, with low frequency pedalling you can have over 1,000 Watts of braking power. The brake is designed to convert the heat released during cycling into current that is fed back to the mains so that you generate your own energy.
