When we're riding indoors the noise, the vibrations, and the pool of sweat on the floor are all signs of a good ride. The more the better, right? Of course, not everyone appreciates it like we do. Well-liked neighbors, landlords, and loved ones certainly deserve deference. It is for these people that the Kinetic by Kurt Trainer Mat is made.
The mat is made from half-inch thick closed-cell foam. It's thick enough to indent but thin enough not to feel mushy. It's also a good thickness for masking floor imperfections. The finish is textured on top, smooth on the bottom. The bottom is better for sticking to floors while the top helps prevent that pooling sweat from rolling off. The top is also slightly absorbent, so dripped chain lube won't slide off.
The Trainer Mat is also fairly big at 72in long by 36in wide. That's longer than your bike, plus the trainer. It rolls up to an 8in diameter to make storage easy.
The Kinetic by Kurt Trainer Mat weighs eight pounds. It comes in Black with the Kinetic logo in Green.
