Feedback Sports is getting into the trainer business. The Colorado company heretofore best known for its bike stands and bike storage solutions has launched the new Omnium portable trainer ($430).

Feedback partnered with SportCrafters to create the innovative trainer that’s designed to blend convenience and ease of use with proven technology. The trainer has a simple fork-mount and utilizes internal progressive resistance.

The design allows the drums to stay cool, minimizing tire wear whether you use it to warm up before a cyclocross race or to log indoor miles during the depths of winter,

The Omnium has a claimed weight of 13.8 pounds and meets TSA airline carry-on regulations, so you can take it on the road if you like. Availability is set for January. Other highlights include:

  • Progressive magnetic resistance
  • No assembly required–simply unfold and mount bike
  • Does not wear race tires like rear-locking trainers
  • Bearings are greased and sealed, requiring no maintenance
  • Includes heavy-duty, padded tote bag for transport and storage
