5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth the Effort, 22 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Elite Arion Home Trainer 2015 (Sports)
Like others, I was sceptical about buying rollers - I definitely wanted them in preference to a turbo trainer, but I did wonder just how hard rollers would be.

If you take the plunge, just heed the general advice...start in a doorway or at least against a solid wall...look ahead, not down...if in doubt, pedal faster!!

Centrifugal force is your friend, when and if you start to wobble..fight the urge to stop or slow down and pedal faster, it will pull you out of the wobble. I've had my rollers for two weeks now and can easily do a 20-minute stint with ease - I still push off from the wall to start off, but that's it. Take the plunge, rollers are so much more engaging than a static turbo trainer - they exercise more than your leg muscles as you are constantly using your back, stomach and shoulder muscles..just as you would on a road ride. Over winter, these will be my best friend!

Couldn't agree more with what you say / I thought in my stupidity that rollers would be easy.......................boy was I wrong- they're relentless as you cannot free-wheel. I would love to know how ten miles on these, where I come off heart pounding and soaked in sweat equates to actual road miles. To anybody thinking of buying one of these from whatever manf', do it, you wont be disappointed ; knackered yes, disappointed no.
