Blackburn Tech Mag 6 Trainer Review
If you’re looking for a decent turbo trainer but short on funds, the Blackburn Tech Mag 6 Trainer could well be the answer. Featuring height adjustable legs, lifetime guarantee, and (for this price range), a great smooth ride sensation, the Tech Mag 6 is an excellent choice for those on a budget looking to get in shape over the winter months.
Out of the box, set up of the Tech Mag 6 turbo trainer is a relatively straightforward process. Just fold out the legs, level the unit on the floor using the adjustable legs, remove your Q/R skewer, then fit and secure in place using Blackburn’s provided Q/R. Once set up, the Tech Mag 6 Trainer unit offers a reassuringly robust and sure-footed base giving you confidence when carrying out sprint intervals.
As the name suggests, the Blackburn Tech Mag 6 Trainer comes with a magnetic resistance unit. Offering users six different resistance levels, that when combined with available gear combinations, make it suitable for the vast majority of indoor training sessions. These six resistance levels on offer from the Tech Mag trainer are controlled by an adjustable knob mounted on the handlebar, making changing resistance a straightforward process.
Noise wise, the Blackburn Tech Mag trainer is surprisingly quiet for a magnetic trainer, more on par with a fluid trainer, meaning high-intensity interval sessions should only be a problem for you, not your neighbors or housemates. Using a turbo trainer specific tire will aid in reducing noise levels even further, last longer than a standard tire, and help prevent tire slippage occurring.
For the money, it’s hard to pick fault with the Blackburn Tech Mag 6 Trainer. It’s a solid no nonsense unit, that does what it says it will. The lifetime guarantee shows Blackburn’s faith in the longevity of this trainer and provides reassurance for buyers. If looking for a quality budget turbo trainer to see you through those long dark winter nights, then you can’t go far wrong with the Blackburn Tech Mag 6 Trainer.
