A top quality product from Tacx. Well made, easy to assemble and run smoothly. Rollers are a great alternative to turbo trainers as technique needs to be spot on to maintain balance and this improves overall fitness.Report this review
easy to use rollers that pack away/set up easily. from someone that had never used rollers before im happy at how forgiving this product was. just make sure you have something to lean against for starting and finishing your ride.Report this review
Excellent quality and easy to set up. Beats z turbo hands down.Report this review
Easy to set up out of the box. High quality set. Takes a little practice but beats turbo trainer hands down.Report this review
I bought this because I thought it would be handier for training on than a turbo. It definitely is, just jump up and your away! I cycle on it in the door frame so if i do have a wobble im always safe. After a few trys its handy to get the hand of. The only real problem is it can be abit sketchy doing short, flat out efforts but its great for long steady efforts. The other reason I bought it was for warming up in stage races and TT's. I can just put the bike straight up on this without worrying about destroying a racing tyre or changing a wheel. One less thing to worry about.Report this review
Easy to get use to ride on. It is quiet and give out a good effort. Excellent price/quality.Report this review
These rollers are superquiet. Large drums help with stability and give a good feel, firm but easy to spin up. The rails slide within themselves for storage or transport, tape the roller band to a rail to secure. Sexy and solid design, plastic rollers easily cleaned of tyre marks with make-up removal wipes. Happy little track racer !Report this review
With my waistline increasing and no motivation to ride up hills (or in bad weather) one decided to invest in a set of rollers. Having never 'rollered' before, there was a degree of trepidation if I'm honest but the prospect of getting time on my bike without being battered by the elements was appealing to me. The price was ok plus I'd heard of Tacx before so that was reassuring. Once they arrived it took about 10 minutes to put them together. I was expecting more 'bits' in the box but assembly was surprisingly easy and the quality was high. These don't feel flimsy or cheap, they feel good quality and robust. I initially set them up in the kitchen so that I could hold on to the worktop to start with. Pretty straight forward if I'm honest but that might be down to having flat platform pedals. There is a bit of movement when to pedal but fear is not the primary emotion when you use these rollers. They do generate a bit of noise but it's not overwhelming, you can still hear the radio when you roller. The one negative point is getting on the bike to start with. The top of the rollers sit about 6" off the ground and your bike sits on them. The easiest /cheapest solution is to get a low plastic footstool. One word of caution, I did have a go at riding with clip in pedals and that was scary, I think i need a bit more practise with the flat pedals before taking that particular next step. Overall - i'd recommend these rollers, simple and good quality.Report this review
These rollers are very durable and convenient. I have over 500 'miles' on them and they're just as quiet as the day i got them.
Wouldn't hesitate to refer a friend to Tacx.
I have been using these rollers for almost a year and I am very satisfied with them. They are wide enough and are really stable when riding. There is no magnetic resistance, but they are not made for interval trainings, so this is not a problem.Report this review
