Sportneer Turbo Trainer Review

Sportneer Turbo Trainer Review Summary

Pros

  • Dual Locking Design - Your bike shouldn't move when strapped in.
  • With wider front legs, this a a pretty stable turbo trainer
  • Pretty smooth

Cons

  • Mid-Range Noise - Depending on the wheels, you may have issues with this
  • Instructions & Setup can be a little tricky. If you have set these up before, you will be fine. But if this is your first time, it may take a little longer. 

Conclusion:

The ride is smooth, and a mid range for the price. The listing and information is confusing though, with some claiming it's a mag, others claiming it's a fluid. Which always throws off testing. 

Summary

A redesigned version of the high reviewed original Sportneer Turbo Trainer. With nearly 1,000 happy customers, and hundreds of top reviews, we had to grab this one to see if it lives up to the hype.

A standard U shape, 2 leg design turbo trainer. With a fluid ride fly wheel and 2 locking points to keep your bike in place. This could be a pretty good version of a turbo trainer.

The Good

As fluid trainer go, this one isn't too bad. For us, it was pretty silent and solid. There are hundreds of happy customers and reviewers who have said that this is a decent turbo trainer, so they can't all be wrong.  

It is cheap, so if you are on a tight budget, but want something quieter than a magnetic it's a good offer. 

The Bad

The main issue with this turbo trainer is that there are no quick releases and having to unlock both sides each time does take a little bit of time. 

Setting the bike up wasn't the most difficult we have dealt with in the past, but we do agree that the instructions are pretty awful. A lot of the images are black and white (or grey), tiny and the instructions are simply lacking. 

Luckily, we have set up a few of these in the past, and used that knowledge to work out how to sort it out. 

Who Is The Sportneer Turbo Trainer For?

  • If you don't have the cash to splash out on something like the Velo Pro and you are in need of something quieter than a magnetic, then this could work for you
  • For those looking for a semi quiet, cheap fluid trainer, with a smooth run. 

Sportneer Trainer Conclusion

A decent, low cost fluid trainer, the Sportneer is a decent turbo trainer for those looking for something more realistic than a mag ride. 

There are issues with the set up, but you can find videos or similar instructions on putting it together, plus it's set up once and forget.
