The H2 offers up a 20lb flywheel, designed to provide a real-world ride feel. It will replicate climbs up to 20 per cent and can handle 2000 watts (if you can produce them!).
The power readings are accurate to +/- 2 per cent, and the unit outputs just 66 decibels at 20mph, so you can train without infuriating family or friends.
Of course, it’s Bluetooth and ANT+ compatible so you can pair up to software packages. Folding legs keep the footprint small when out of use, but stable in use, and it all weighs in at 21.3kg.
If you’re prepared to shell out a little more, then the Tacx Neo 2 Smart Trainer could be yours for £899.99.
The Tacx Neo is a popular model at Cycling Weekly, impressing us with its heavy flywheel and natural ride feel.
The newest model, the Neo 2, offers pedal stroke analysis, and can replicate climbs as steep as 25 per cent, catering for a max power output up to 2,200 watts.
With an RRP of £1199, the unit is now reduced by 25 per cent, to £899.99 at Wiggle.
