Our review

Great value turbo trainer for beginners, with the lack of remote the only minor issue

A budget turbo trainer that’s fit for purpose, the CycleOps Classic Mag is an ideal entry-level turbo. It has five resistance settings which are not adjustable remotely, but you can still use your gears like you would on the road. 


We found the lowest two settings would suit most riders, and maintaining a decent cadence wasn’t a problem – it gave a surprisingly good rolling feel. 

We had no slip when sprinting and time to a standstill from a max effort was 16 seconds on the lowest resistance setting. For a little extra motivation, it comes with a Race Day DVD to help your training programme.
