Allowing you to ride your bike while remaining stationary, turbo trainers are the perfect winter training accessory. Great for keeping up your fitness when the weather is unpredictable, investing in a turbo trainer is a safe way to continue cycling. There are a number of different types of turbo trainers available, from ‘bike on’ types into which the rear wheel of your bike is clamped, to ‘direct drive’ models which connect directly to the rear dropouts. Most models offer variable resistance and the most advanced ones are whisper-quiet. The latest smart trainers also allow integration with training software packages for data-driven training and virtual racing.
