This video describes some of the software features that the Elite Real Turbo Muin can take advantage of.
The Real Turbo Muin is the latest Elite trainer and an advance on the original Elite Muin, which was a pure fluid resistance trainer. The Elite Real Turbo Muin trainer is direct-drive, which means your bike is physically fixed to the resistance unit. This ensures highly efficient transmission of your pedaling energy because your chain is physically powering the trainer. This is not like traditional turbo trainers where the back tyre spins a roller which is much less efficient. Also, traditional trainers wear your back tyres out if used for prolonged periods while direct-drive trainers eliminate this issue.
Because this turbo trainer uses electromagnetic technology is can be controlled digitally via the Real Software. This means your resistance can be either manually varied using a smart device or computer, or it can be automatically controlled via training programs. Elite has advanced software that allow you to race on GPS routes or on real films of famous cycling courses. You can even race other riders in live online races.

Note that some older models do not have the Bluetooth Smart software so check before you make your purchase.
