Inside Ride eMotion Rollers


Finally, a cycling platform that moves with you, allowing the natural motion of real riding. The E-motion system completely changes the feel of indoor riding.

The patented design is based on a simple sliding frame, which lets the bike float naturally forward or back as you ride…so your bike reacts freely to the movement of your body, as it does on the road. Common rollers prevent natural motion (which is why people don’t like them). This is the first trainer EVER to create a full 3-dimensional feel with steering, balance and freedom of motion.
