Virtual Reality Rollers

 

 

Indoor Trainers, 2009 ~

A stationary trainer is an excellent way to maintain fitness when it's too dark, cold, or wet to train outdoors. Use your own bike so you maintain the positioning to which you are accustomed. Bikes mount quickly and easily and the trainers are compact to transport or store. Our selection includes top quality stationaries for every budget plus 3 sets of rollers.

Elite Muin ~          In stock now !

The Elite Muin replaces slippery tire-to-roller connections while eliminating wheel and tire wear and tear. This revolutionary direct-drive trainer mounts seamlessly to your bikeís drivetrain. By simply removing your rear wheel and slipping the trainer into your dropouts, the Elite Muin replicates the inertia of a rolling bicycle. Plus, it provides progressive resistance of up to 2200 watts to duplicate the feel of actual road riding. Once you experience the real-road feel of direct drive you wonít go back to traditional indoor trainers.

The Muin features a large, 13 pound weighted flywheel that mimics the inertia of a rolling bicycle. The flywheel is contained within a fluid reservoir so it works essentially noise free. The trainer spins freely when the pedals arenít engaged, and delivers progressive resistance similar to real-world conditions. The Muin fits all road bikes and works seamlessly with your mountain bike or winter-specific cross bike. Simply remove the back wheel, attach the rear dropouts to the spindle and go. No more tire slippage and wear, front wheel blocks or unstable platforms.

"Astoundingly quiet ... from listening to it multiple times over two days the only thing I heard was the sounds of the bike's drivetrain and chain going through the cassette/chainring. Without question, by far the quietest trainer I've seen to date. Itís like comparing the roar of a lion (normal trainer) to that of a house cat with duct tape on it (Muin)."  - DC Rainmaker

Kirk Power Meters ~    Sale - 10% off now!

The Kinetic Wireless Power Computer is designed to give you accurate power (watt) readings when you are using a Kinetic Trainer. All other functions (speed, distance, cadence, calorie burn, altimeter, etc) are accurate both on and off the trainer. Because of this, the Kinetic Power Computer is an excellent choice for a cycling computer both on and off the trainer.

The watts reading is calibrated based on a mathematical relationship between power and speed. This Kinetic Power Formula along with our proprietary software accurately estimates the cumulative effect of 16 different interactive forces. This power curve is based on the "average " rider on the "outdoor ride" using the following cubic function: P = (5.244820) * S + (0.01968) * S3. S=speed in miles per hour, P=power in Watts
