Cycle Ops Magneto Trainer
Cycle Ops is easy to put on this list because their Magneto uses progressive magnetic resistance which stays nearly silent while offering the perfect amount of road-feel resistance. The base is made of alloy and has a nice width to it; when combined with the specialized stabilizing legs this trainer is not going anywhere no matter how hard you pedal. Mounting a tire of pretty much any size is as simple as can be with a bolt action lever that easily adjusts for each tire size and an impressive turn dial gives the roller just enough tension for a smooth road feel without wearing on your tire or catching during your ride. In true Cycle Ops fashion the Magneto comes with a lifetime warranty which keeps your mind on your workout and not on the welfare your device.
