roll on the winter!

PostedAugust 4, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Was hesitant to begin with, but a spout of awful weather and a disruption to my riding had me biting the bullet. I set them up inside the living room door and within ten minutes of imbalance I was steady and riding them with ease...well...I should say I was balanced on them safely...I was not riding them with ease...they are brutal! Within five minutes of getting on them I am warmed up and working out. Do not be fooled into thinking this is just like riding on the road...it is intense. No let up...no coasting along freewheeling...just spinning till you have to stop. I am currently doing three minute sets with a minute break between. I am hoping this will increase over time, but I have seen a marked improvement in stamina on the road already. Would I recommend purchasing these? Without a seconds thought. Do I think i am benefiting from them? Without a doubt! Are they worth the money? Much cheaper than a year's worth of spinning classes...in your own home...watching telly while you ride on them! They're great.

Great so far

PostedFebruary 14, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
This is the first time I've used rollers and initially they felt unstable (as the user guide suggested) I was almost constantly supporting myself on a wall. But I very quickly got the hang of it and felt more stable after just a couple of attempts. You do (well I do so far) need to concentrate hard and react quickly but with small changes so it is great for training and speeding up your reactions. I've not had these long but am very happy so far. Lightweight and easy to use. There is plenty of space for sideways movement before you would hit the edge, more than you think when swaying from side to side.

This set of rollers are awesome

PostedDecember 27, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
I was bought these rollers for Christmas, as I wanted to progress from the turbo trainer I have owned for 18 months, I was warned that it would take a few sessions to get the hang of riding on rollers as it's all to do with balance and core stability, however it took me about 40 mins, with only. One little fall, the workout you get from these is fantastic, far better than my turbo trainer, very happy with them!!!

Good set of rollers

PostedAugust 27, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
These rollers are a good bit of kit that I would recommend. 3 different base magnetic resistance settings are consistent. The rollers are solid and they fold away nicely too.
The only downside is that I worry about putting my full weight on the black plastic frame at the wrong point as it does flex slightly, however, this has not been a problem so far. Other than than, as with any set of rollers they do take a bit of getting used to.

This product is exactly what I hoped it would be

PostedDecember 27, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight, easy to set up
Took about 15 to 30 minutes to get the hang of it but already I can feel it is a great way to improve balance, core stability and concentration as well as being a good work out as well. Not boring.

A great product to keep you fit

PostedNovember 26, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: cant think of any
These rollers are a great product to keep you fit during the cold wet winter months, they are light weight but well built, easy to adjust, fold away when not being used and are surprisingly easy to use once you get used to them. It took me 5/10 minutes to get riding on these rollers without having to hold on, just set up in a door way so you have something to hold on to for the first few mins & then you will be away just keep looking straight ahead & don't look down at your wheel or rollers. If you want to keep fit these rollers will do the job there is nu free wheeling with these like you do on the road you have to keep peddling they are a good workout. They are nice and quiet to use aswell so you won't annoy the family or neighbours. Don't be put off by the price they are worth it it's cheaper than joining the gym & your rollers will be there to use for years to come plus you get to use your own bike great for improving balance too.
