Elite kicks off the 2019-2020 trainer season with a new smart trainer, the Elite Suito. The Suito, which means “Immediately” is marketed as a plug-and-play smart trainer meaning, you take it out of the box and it’s ready to use. No legs or cassette
There is nothing new about plug-and-play smart trainers. Wahoo has been selling the KICKR for years with a cassette and requires no assembly. TechnoGym also has been selling a trainer with a cassette and requires no assembly (anyone has that one?). However, the Suito is the first midrange smart trainer that comes with a cassette and requires no assembly. The Suito retails for $800.
The Suito features a very compact design for wider bike compatibility. It’s compatible with 130 to 135mm quick release hubs and 142x12mm thru-axle adapters. Additional adapters for 148x12mm thru-axle and 135x10mm are also available separately through Elite’s website. The Suito can fit 9-11 speed Shimano/SRAM cassettes. It’s also compatible with Campagnolo 9-11 speed with a separate adapter.
