Wind turbo trainers are at the bottom of the turbo trainer spectrum, both in price and user experience. However if you want a basic wind turbo trainer for a bit of exercise and to keep you moving while the weather is grotty, then the CycleOps Wind Turbo Trainer is a good choice.
This turbo trainer has a vortex blade design that generates progressive resistance, thus giving you a more lifelike riding experience. To some extent, this is true but when you are going at a pace, the trainer tends to vibrate terribly which is not the case when you are reaching speed on the road. While on the topic of vibrations, this trainer is quite typical of its kind. Lets say that you wont be watching TV with it in the room, unless slient movies are your thing.
With a useful quick release system, it is very easy to assemble and to pack away. The nice thing about this trainer is that it is easy to store because of its small size.
As previously mentioned, this turbo trainer uses wind resistance and as such you will have a realistic-(ish) riding experience. The harder you pedal, the higher the resistance gets. If you are looking for a high intensity workout you may however find that this turbo trainer reaches a resistance ceiling which may limit you a bit.
The CycleOps Classic Wind is very hardy and has the typical CycleOps quality. Even better than this is that it is light and easy to transport, more so than equivalent magentic turbo trainers which is great if you want to travel with it. I have also heard good things about the CycleOps customer service so if anything happens to your trainer you can be sure that they will fix it swiftly and without fuss.
If you are looking for something cheap and easy to use, this turbo trainer will satisfy your needs. It is well-built and extremely compact but make sure that you are out of earshot when using it as you will become unpopular very quickly.
