A turbo trainer is a device to which your bike is fixed to - usually through the bike’s cassette or quick release. Turbo trainers provide effective training by changing the amount of resistance provided - meaning they can effectively replicate harsh sections of a ride such as sprinting or climbing. Equally, if you are looking for a low impact workout, turbo trainers can also be used to replicate easier rides out. Turbo trainers, because of their ability to replicate the feel of riding out on the roads - makes them a better choice for most riders, compared to jumping on an exercise bike. As the world of turbo trainers has evolved, there are now a range of smart turbo trainers, which are compatible with apps such as Zwift.
