The Blue Twist has the same resistance unit as the Blue Matic, but does not have a handlebar resistance lever. You manually set the resistance, selecting one of the seven positions using a switch on the brake. The maximum resistance is 700 Watt. The Blue Twist is suitable as an entry-level model. It is perfectly suited to recreational cyclists who don't have performance in mind, but just want to pedal when the does not allow outside cycling anymore.
