Smart trainer around 400€

Hi everyone,

I have decided to buy a smart trainer to get into Zwift this winter. After reading almost every possible post and watching every video in youtube, I still cannot decide. So I figured... why not asking to people who might have some advices.
I am currently doubting between the Elite Rampa, Tacx Bushidoo and Kickr Snap.
Although I am a relative beginner, I like the slope simulation of the Bushidoo, but I also think that Kickr is a better machine overall (and possibly quiter, which is also a good point). Prices are similar now, except for the Rampa, but I read very bad critics about the old Elite generation.

Thanks guys!


  • Zwiftcast episode 12 there's a review of the Elite Rampa and it comes out pretty well.
  • I bought the Kickr Snap yesterday from my LBS for a cracking deal of £480 (came with training mat and cadence sensor). Used last night with zwift and good (quite addictive actually). Highly recommend getting the Kickr Snap.

    I'm in the same boat. Also highly indecisive no matter how much I read on the subject.

    Currently leaning towards the Kickr Snap, one of my reasons is the heavier flywheel but not really sure if that makes much difference on a smart trainer - I had previously been hankering after a kinetic RM or RnR and got the impression a bigger flywheel gave a better feel in that momentum is not lost as quickly as it would be with a smaller one.

    OP have you come to a decision yet? :-)
  • The Kickr Snap is generally well regarded so if you're leaning towards that there's no particular reason not to go for it.
