Our review

Basic looks but a smooth, quiet ride feel with plenty of remote control resistance
Skip to view product specifications

Minoura’s V150 has rough welds and plastic locking levers, which make it look cheap. Don’t judge this trainer on its basic looks, though – it’s a really smooth, quiet and versatile machine. 


It’s stable and secure in use, with only a bit of flex when you’re really cranking. The simple single-bolt setup doesn’t take long to use either. This turbo is quiet and smooth, with decent spin sustain from the 1.5kg flywheel. Overall, the ride feel is excellent. 

The seven-step remote lever on the bars gives the potential for loads of resistance and we never had to use more than one setting, even with a compact chainset. The price also includes a video download from thesufferfest.com, to get you started on the way to spring fitness.
