Buying Guide

We know what it’s like trying to work your way through some of the deals and latest trainer models available. That’s why we created the buying guide below, which basically compares each of the various indoor trainers you can buy online today. The table gives a quick overview of various factors, including the reasons to buy a specific model, its weight, its ranking factor on Amazon (for example, how many gave it 5 stars – or perhaps just even 1 star), and its price range.

Don’t miss our comprehensive FAQ if you have any questions! And if you just want to jump to an even briefer summary, check out our guide to the five BEST trainers to consider in 2015!

A few notes about the table:

  • You can sort the table columns by clicking on the column title (for example, if you want to sort them by price or weight or rating).
  • Prices are indicated by: $ = less than $80, $$ = $80-120, $$$ = $120-200, $$$$ = $200-300, $$$$$ = $300+
  • Weight is in pounds.
