Elite's unique Parabolic roller set is a great option for new recruits to rollers who lack peak workout potential.
There’s some bolting together before you’re ready to go and it doesn’t fold flat, but the simple frame is adjustable to all solo bike sizes.
The rough surface plastic drums mean a secure and stable low-speed line-holding character. The flanged ‘parabolic’ ends reduce the chance of the wheels wandering off the rollers too, which boosts confidence.
The large drums spin really well and are surprisingly quiet – great for balance and consistent speed maintenance, but you’ll be topping out the gears at 60kph+ to get a punishing workout.
