Customer reviews for Cycleops Aluminium Rollers with Resistance

Cycleops Aluminium Rollers with Resistance

The same great features of the Aluminum Rollers, with the additional benefit of variable resistance. The unique patent-pending resistance unit uses zero moving parts to deliver 5 levels of quiet magnetic resistance. Precision-lathed 3.25" aluminum roller drums run silent and smooth, and won't distort in heat or sunlight. Fold flat or stand on end for convenient storage. Designed for both indoor and outdoor use.

great product

Posted19 January 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, quiet
I brought these as a first time pair of rollers and they are absolutely great. After a few times starting in the doorway it becomes very natural. They are quiet and the resistance unit is very helpful, also I find them a lot less boring and a better workout than a stationary trainer. So far the quality seems excellent and it is very easy to set up and change for different bikes. I would definitely recommend it to any cyclist.

Scary at first

Posted24 February 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Wow just like ice to start, but after a couple of times it feels natural. The construction of these roller is really solid. They fold up so can be tucked away. I used an old mattress on one side until I was confident.

Great product; bullet proof

Posted26 January 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
open the box, unfold them and your away. Having never used rollers before I started in a door frame; some 20 mins or so later I was away. Am not sure if the resistance unit is necessary so probably wouldnt have botherd as you can always buy and fit on later. You really get a good workout and there's no messing about like a turbo... you just get on and get on with it... also improves your core, bike handling and line holding skills.FAB

Does wonders for your form

Posted04 October 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: improves cycling form
Cons: Expensive
I have had these rollers for a few weeks now and after the usual wobbles between a door frame, I put them in the garage after two sessions.
They provide a very good workout and I can be drenched in sweat in only half hour with a small fan on and the garage door open.
The best part is my cycling form on the road after using the rollers for a few weeks, I am much, much smoother and can hold a perfect line.
I haven't really used the resistance unit yet, though I plan to use this for interval training through the winter months when it is more difficult to get out on the road.

Good value for money rollers

Posted22 October 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Comfortable, folds for storage, optional fork stand
Cons: not super quiet, can't adjust tension from the bike
I've had these rollers for about four weeks now and I use them a couple of times a week. They are really easy to put together and fold for storage. One of the reasons I went with cycleops is because they have an optional fork stand, which I need to use in pregnancy. The fork stand is great, easy to adjust for when my husband wants to use it, and feels stable. I'm disappointed with the resistance unit, which can't be adjusted on the fly (like for eg a Minoura resistance unit). I'm also disappointed that they aren't as quiet as I had hoped, but given that I'm yet to find a quieter set of rollers, it can't be too strongly criticised for this.
