Belt Trainer General Information:
On a belt trainer the bike tyre runs on a grippy belt - which is attached to the magnetic resistance drive unit. This makes it ideal for mountain bikes with wide tyres and even OK for knobby tyres.

Customer Reviews

works well on my mtb Review by Simon C.
I bought this unit from you a year ago, and have given it a reasonably good workout. No issues to date, is very sturdy and well made. Quite handy because I only ride on knobby tyres and didn't want to change tyres just to indoor much better than I expected.

Further queries on this cycling trainer can be sent to us on the online contact below.

Q. How reliable are these units?
We have sold over 100 units with no issues to date. An excellent warranty provides peace of mind.

Q. If I break the lever or lose a part what can I do?
A. We carry a full range of spare parts to ensure years of training on your machine. The most commonly sold spare part is the lever. If you get too excited training and jerk roughly at it, it can break! This is not covered by warranty unless there was an issue when new.

Q. Do I need a riser block?
A. It is not essential - many people use a telephone book, the riser block is neater!

Q. Will this ruin my tyres?
A belt trainer creates virtually no wear on your tyres.

*Pro rata warranty:
If there is a warranty problem with the magnetic drive after the full 2 year warranty has run out, it will be replaced at a discount to the spare part cost at the rate of:
