Built-in cooling, but it’s noisy and choppy and the clamps could damage your frame
Skip to view product specifications

Beto’s basic wind trainer is refreshingly cooling, but only for riders who don’t mind a bit of noise. Despite the budget price, the well-shaped, broad-stance frame is better looking and more stable than a lot of trainers that cost double the price.

The barrel roller adjuster and push-pin engine attachment make it fast to use from the box. The twin plastic winding handles also make it easy to get your bike in and out quickly. The metal faces of the axle clamps have a really large diameter though, so make sure they contact the skewer and don’t gouge your dropouts. 

There’s no flywheel attached to the metal roller either, so it’s choppy to ride, with no momentum outside the weight of your wheel. While the fan shroud can be rotated to keep you cool, it’s incredibly noisy in use.
