Cyclists gearing up for a big ride sometimes need to practice when the weather isn't ideal, but still want to use those expensive bikes they purchased instead of an indoor model. And even if you're not hoping to be the next Greg LeMond, increasing resistance by working with the apps and virtual ride programs available for these smart trainers will improve endurance as well as strength. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best smart bike trainer on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 05, 2018:

Special consideration needs to be given to the ease of setup. While many drive trainers have a wealth of features, they won't do the user any good if the device just sits in a box because they don't know how to set it up. That's why the top items on the list are those that allow riders to easily attach their bikes and get riding.
