Why buy a Smart Turbo Trainer for cycling?

Having a smart trainer and a platforms such as Zwift makes training that much more enjoyable.

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 a number of 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.

    Hi, I was looking to try out a Tacx Neo Smart trainer with the possibility of buying one and wondered if you still had this available in your Edinburgh shop?

      Hi Sam, we don’t have one set up in store just now I’m afraid. We have free delivery (in store or to your home) and an easy returns policy if it turns out that isn’t what you want.
