    I have them, decent quality and the resistance is plenty for use with my track bike, never tried them with my road bike but im sure they would be good for that too

    Basically they are the same as the cycleops ones (which are easier to find reviews of) just a different colour and sticker

    They are great, well put together, much quiter than my previous tacx rollers.

    The resistance goes from easy spinning to ripping your legs off just by using your gears, I got them to do specific workouts at ftp/vo2 max levels and they are perfect.

    To put out 250w on the tacx needed top gear and a cadence of 120+, pretty useless.
