We've looked through the online retailers and found the best deals on turbo trainers...
Training with a turbo allows you to complete high intensity workouts, from the comfort of your own home.
The benefits here are several-fold – firstly, you can dodge the rain and wind during the winter months. Secondly, with no distractions from junctions and roundabouts, you can ride intervals to your maximum capacity without needing to keep a ‘heads up, accidents down’ mentality going.

Tacx Flux Direct Drive Smart Trainer – was £699.99, now £629.99 & Tacx Neo Direct Drive Smart Trainer – was £1249.99, now £1124.98
The newest and coolest in smart turbo training.
Both connect wirelessly via ANT+ and Bluetooth, and are compatible with Tacx Utility, Zwift, Kinomap, Skuga, Trainer road, FulGaz, The Sufferfest, Cycleops Virtual Training, BKOOL indoor, Golden Cheetah, Maximum Trainer, Perfpro and VeloReality.
These units output data on speed, cadence and power and are compatible with Shimano, SRAM and Campag cassettes.
The premium option, the Neo has a max resistance of 2500 watts and is suitable for use with apps on tablets and smartphones. It’s super quiet and produces no vibration – Taxc claims it’s the quietest trainer there is.
In our review, we concluded: “The Tacx Neo is a great piece of hardware that has a really realistic ride feel and is impressively quiet. If noise is important to you, then this is a great option. If you can live with some additional noise or want to annoy your neighbours then a less expensive smart trainer could serve you just as well for playing things like Zwift.
“The Tacx Neo is more sophisticated than the Wahoo Kickr and slightly better across the board. However the Kickr wins in a couple of areas – it is easier to carry and the Wahoo Software is better and more intuitive.”
