TruTrainer rollers are known for their extraordinary build quality and ultra-smooth ride.As soon as you open the box, you will see and feel the high quality build, the gold accent color on the rollers and how smooth they feel.

TruTrainer have two versions of this rollers, the classic one, which is their basic version. And the smart load verison, which makes the rollers smart. It measures power and broadcast in ANT+ and Bluetooth. It interacts with smart cycling apps like Zwift and TrainerRoad. You can ride it to simulate real courses with any app that support ANT+ FE-C or Bluetooth FTMS. Or you can ride it in ERG mode for structured interval training.
