Turbo trainers convert your bike into a stationary trainer allowing you to do training sessions indoors when the weather outside is inclement. NO more excuses for not getting on your bike.
Turbo Trainers aren't just for winter, if you are serious about your training Turbo Trainers are a good way to do intervals and speed sessions without the worry and distraction of traffic. Constant resistance allows you to create scientific controlled sessions as well as being ideal for warming up on pre-race. Turbo trainers generate their resistance in a variety of ways - magnetic, fluid or fan. Magnetic and fluid are generally quietist.
The most advanced Turbo Trainers allow interaction with the rider and can adjust resistance, some link up to your HRM and PC to create an integrated training system.
