Don’t hit the sofa just because it’s snowing – keep both your fitness and motivation levels up through the worst of the winter weather with a home trainer
First of all it’s worth thinking about what you want a turbo for. If you need portability then size and weight will be a consideration.
If you are planning long winter nights in the garage, your demands will be quite different. The Elite Qubo is an excellent choice for its ease of use – there really is nothing to do but attach the bike and pedal. Its frame design and fluid brake give the best performance here.
The Tacx Blue Motion’s performance makes it another great choice. If you want high resistance levels or are tight on space, then it’s a turbo worth checking out. CycleOps’s Magneto is also worth consideration – like the Blue Motion it is easily portable and with variable adjustment without the need for an adjustment lever, it?s a great trainer for taking to events.
