- rollers – what's good for a reasonable price?

PlantX have a couple of metal ones for under a £150 which I guess is as cheap as they come.
I’ve got a set of the Elite plastic ones, which are perfectly fine if, well, a little too plastic.
Second hand would be the cheapest, as long as they are good nick then they’d work fine for CX warmups.Posted 4 years agoThe Swedish ChefMember
Plenty of resistance for interval training.
Either get the small metal rollers without of the Elite Parabolic with, (which I’ve got). There is plenty of resistance there, I’ve managed over 800watts on my rollers and its technique and ability to stay on them more than resistance that is the limiting factor.Posted 4 years agobacondoublecheeMember
I’ve got the Sportscrafters ones with resistance from Planet X. I was expecting them to be quite easy compared to the turbo workouts I’d done previously – turns out I was wrong! Not only does it offer similar resistance to a turbo on full, but it is much harder to get there and keep it there due to the technique required. I’ve done some very good interval sessions on the rollers that I didn’t think I’d be able to when I bought them.
You can swap the drum round to have static resistance but I’ve not tried that. In summary, they are sturdy, easy to use for a first timer, quieter than a turbo and a much better workout.Posted 4 years ago
