Tacx Blue Motion T2600 trainer review

The Tacx Blue Motion T2600 trainer offers a compact design and a good choice of resistance settings, but isn't the quietest and could be more realistic.

Tacx, Turbo trainer test
Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Tacx Blue Motion T2600 may be at the lower end of what you'd expect to pay for a decent trainer, but manages to offer compact design and a number of resistance settings. However it could certainly be quieter and the ride feel wasn't the most realistic.

The Tacx Blue Motion T2600 resides at the lower end of the turbo trainer price spectrum, possessing fewer features than premium models. However, the lower price doesn't mean it is poor quality – this is a very well made trainer, that is easy to set up, use, and store away thanks to its compact folding design – perfect if you have limited space.
