I have them and absolutely love them. They're very well made, Mine have ~250-300 hours on them and not a thing has gone wrong, there is no wear anywhere on them.

You can go from no tension to massive tension, I can do everything from recovery rides on them to VO2 intervals, you can even sprint as long as you are somewhat smooth with your accelerations.

The rocking is pretty cool because, its nearly impossible to go off the rollers. I've intentionally tried to rock off them and I can't do it. Of course you can tip over if you try like any other rollers, but if you stay up straight, you can't ride off the side of them due to the wheels on the front drum.

I tried them for almost 2 months now and beleive it or not they are more than perfect. I like to train indoor now rather than outdoors. You can do anything on these rollers with any efforts while using the resistance unit.

The best thing on this rollers is that you can stand up on them, the fourth time on this rollers I was able to stand and ride free hands. They are really better than the fluid trainner as they will help you to maintain your form beside doing hard workouts for your legs.

Get them and you will never regret the decision.

But they're breaking the law! :p

According to E-Motion, it's not legal to build a roller like the one they sell, even for your own use. Any patent lawyers here who can tell us if this is BS or not?

At $850 it's a bit of an ouch factor. They look quite nice though.

They certainly are expensive, but for those of us that have icy roads for 4-5 months out of the year, they are a very good investment.

complete BS most don't even use the same design on movement.

While a manufacturer would like you to believe that, it becomes illegal if you make a set, then SELL them.

i have one and i like them. before this, i had a folding one which had a limited resistance, but this one has many levels of resistance. in terms of the feel, i still think it's not quite like riding on a road. this one is pretty big and heavy. you will need to find a place to put this as moving it around is very cumbersome.
