I know there’s a lot of advice and reccomendations on here regarding Smart trainers, but it seems to be scattered amongst various conversations on different threads, so i thought i’d create a topic in itself not only for ease of future searches, but i also have a question for now!
A mate is asking about a smart turbo. He and his family are chipping in for one for his brother’s 40th. He’s into his indoor cycling, but isn’t really up on tech etc so can’t really offer an informed opinion. He just sent them the link to the Neo 2T! Course he did, it’s £1200! Wishful thinking maybe!!!
I know the main brands, and looking at their offerings i’m coming up with (excluding top end):
The Tacx Flux - £549 and Flux 2 - £700 look quite decent (for what he would want/need - to put it politely, he’s not a racing snake),
Elite Direto £700
Saris H3 £900
Wahoo Kickr Core £700
The Saris probably knocks itslef out on cost here (unless i’m missing a more budget freindly option).
Any thoughts or experience on the others? Ta.
(also may inform my thinking next winter if i think i can get away with it!! haha)
