Away from stop-start traffic, indoor cycling is a proven way to build strength, speed and stamina on the bike in the shortest time.
However, even avid home trainer users admit that this can be a grind – hence the existence of spinning classes, designed to pep up and make indoor cycling much more fun.
Smart turbo trainers that can be linked up to Apps such as Zwift do the same job of making home training more engaging in your own home (or garage).
Zwift is an App that links the smart turbo trainer to your computer, tablet or phone, so you can ride with (or against) other cyclists in a virtual environment. As Zwift put it, ‘it’s a digital destination for fitness, fun, and adventure’.
We carry three Zwift-compatible smart trainers – every one made by the number one name in home trainers, Tacx from the Netherlands. What’s more, each of these trainers is price tracked so you can be confident you’ll get a good deal when you shop at Britain’s Best Bike Shop. Or if you’re after a turbo trainer in general, take a look at this blog post.
Tacx Vortex Smart Trainer £341.10 (RRP £399.99)

Tacx Flux 2 Smart Trainer £629.10 (RRP £699.00)

If it’s convenient for you to swing by one of our shops, we’ll have a smart trainer set up so you can hop on and try it for yourself instore.
