Simple, lightweight, magnetic turbo trainer
Skip to view product specifications

The Magneto is a simple looking, lightweight, magnetic turbo trainer. It’s quiet and sturdy, and is easy to set up. It claims progressive resistance as you up the gears but we found it to be average in this regard as we searched for ‘real world’ feel.


The flywheel isn’t bad, with a roll-down of 10 seconds, but the ride didn’t feel quite as smooth as some of the other trainers we’ve tested recently. It does come with the Real Rides Race Day training DVD though – a simulation of a high intensity criterium (US National Championships with Robbie Ventura) with an on-screen workout to match.
