Best turbo trainers 2022: Get bike training indoors

Turbo trainers have long been a favourite of cyclists and triathletes, letting them get on the bike during the cold winter months without having to brave the rain, wind and ice on the roads.

Turbo trainers have the advantage over an exercise bike that they use your existing bike, meaning you can train as you race and will often take up a lot less space than an exercise bike when you come to pack them away. 

What is a turbo trainer?

Briefly, a turbo trainer is a device that attaches to the rear of your bike, clamping the frame in place, allowing you to ride your bike without going anywhere.

The more advanced direct drive turbo trainers replace the back wheel completely, letting you slot your bike frame into place and then riding as normal. You'll have to match the cassette (gears) on the turbo to those on your bike. Simpler turbo trainers will clamp onto the rear wheel skewer, putting the rear wheel onto a roller. You might want to get a turbo tyre so you don't wear out your road tyres.

There are basically two types of turbo trainer - normal or smart - with the latter able to supply you with a lot of data about your training, as well as being compatible with a number of virtual training services, such as Zwift. As we're gadget people, all the trainers below are smart, so you're connected, to differing degrees.
