CycleOps aluminium rollers with resistance


Price as reviewed:


Taking standard aluminium rollers and adding a resistance unit adds a new level of versatility to this training tool.

The magnetic resistance unit can also be bought separately.

Compared to some of the rollers that have come to the market in the last season or two, the CycleOps version isn’t the most sophisticated, but it certainly works well.

Three alloy cylinders linked with two folding runners keep things simple, and with six levels of resistance to choose from, it should work for most people.

In fact, the resistance from those magnets gives enough levels to suit most riders’ abilities; it’s just a shame not to be able to adjust them while riding.


Overall, what you see here is a very capable set of rollers at a fair price, which, provided the bearings hold out, should last a lifetime.
