Wind turbo trainers work by spinning a fan or blade that is enclosed within the resistance unit. As the fan/blade spins it is resisted by the air around it, which is transmitted to the resistance you feel as you pedal.
Wind trainers offer progressive resistance that means as you pedal faster the resistance increases. Wind turbo trainers tend to be cheaper than the other resistance types, however they can be pretty noisy due to the turbulence caused to the air and the friction between the fan/blade and the air as it rotates. This being said wind indoor trainers are becoming more and more popular, particularly with the increased popularity of direct-drive turbo trainers. These direct-drive trainers have larger fans/blades that in turn allow larger flywheels that generate increased resistance for better workouts and are much quieter than the cheaper wind trainers.
