Description

The all-in-one trainer.

Rollers have been regarded as the go-to winter training option by professional riders for years. Besides providing a consistent workout, rollers also promote balance and core-strengthening. The biggest drawback has always been that rollers only provide so much resistance — until now. The SportCrafters OverDrive Pro Rollers use progressive resistance to combine the benefits of roller training with the resistance of a fluid trainer.

The OverDrive Pro Rollers look identical to the Cadence Rollers. They were machined from aluminum and feature 3.25in drums with .125in-thick walls. They are 15.5in wide and were lathed on the axle for precision runout and balance, and they're dynamically spin-balanced — they will not distort in heat or sunlight. As with all SportCrafters rollers, the bearings are greased and sealed and need no maintenance. The steel framework is zinc-plated and powder coated for durability. So, what makes the OverDrive Rollers different? Well, they incorporate the use of progressive resistance. This means that as the rollers spin faster, resistance increases in a non-linear fashion. This gives you all the benefits of balance and core strength development from traditional rollers with the added resistance found in stationary trainer units.

The Rollers are designed to fit wheel sizes 600 to 700c and 26 to 29in. It will accommodate wheelbases from 37.5 to 44in, as drilled. There is no rider weight limit. The rollers' unfolded dimensions are 60 x 20 x 4.25in, and folded it is 31.5 x 20 x 5.25in. As with all SportCrafters' rollers, they have a lifetime warranty and are made in Granger, Indiana.

The SportCrafters OverDrive Pro Rollers come in one size and one color.

Happy Competitive Cyclist Customer.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is the first online product review i have ever written, so hopefully it won't be too bad.
I bought these rollers to keep me in shape this winter during the long 4-5 month winter here in Northern Indiana. I have a Kurt Kinetic Road machine fluid trainer that i have used the past 2 winters, but that gets boring and i find that i do not push myself and i slack off knowing that my rear skewer is locked into the rock solid KK frame. I figure rollers will keep my attention better and force me to drive on.
I received the rollers very quickly from CC via UPS; my only complaint is that like a lot of other places they simply put a shipping label on the actual box. I personally do not like this as i am slightly OCD and would prefer to know that my item is safe inside a "shipping box". One of the rubber feet penetrated the corner of the box while in transit however no damage to the rollers, feet, or red rails was noted so it should be all right.
The rollers are fantastic! So smooth and quiet, i wish i would have gotten these sooner! They are very stout and well built. I can see these lasting a very long time, if not forever. I did my homework and would say that for the price, you cannot beat these rollers!
I set mine on a 2' by 6' piece of 3/4" plywood that i cut to fit. (My home is all light colored carpet except for wood floors in the entry foyer and kitchen). I am using these in a spare bedroom. The wood works great as a barrier to keep the carpet out of the rollers.
There is a learning curve and i still occasionally need to steady myself with a wall, but i will get the hang of it over the next 4 months i am sure!

Bottom Line: If you are in the market for an indoor training device, look no further than these SportCrafters rollers!

Roll On!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Here in Utah we bike riders face a tough reality. Though we enjoy the greatest snow on earth, there are days this simply makes riding outside impossible (OK fat bikes, but we're talking road here). Perhaps you face other time limiters, conditions or other restraints that keep you inside when you want to be riding. Do you get a trainer or rollers is the great debate. Without question you should get the Sportcrafters Overdrive Rollers and here's why.

First to address the trainer vs. roller debate. While a trainer is a reasonable solution, it's just not the best way to work on practical bike skills. Sure you can turn the pedals, but a trainer gives you the leeway to be lazy in your pedal stroke and balance. With rollers you are forced to focus on a smooth pedal stroke and balance, engaging your core muscles and ultimately leading to a better pedal stroke and higher efficiency the next time you clip in on the road. Yes, there is a learning curve and I'd recommend starting off in a doorway or next to a wall, but once you get it down you'll enjoy a roller workout immensely more than the drudgery of the trainer.

I love these rollers for a few reasons. Quality, ease of use and progressive resistance. These aren't run of the mill throw a couple of rolling pins between a cheap metal frame. Nope, high quality aluminum rollers and powdered coated steel make for a very durable and great looking set of rollers to liven up the living room. The rollers come...ready to roll....right out of the box with no assembly and an easy setup. No need to swap wheels, tires or skewers fumbling around with your trainer. Quick and easy. Finally the progressive rolling resistance is the best out there for mimicking the real forces of the road. You can really get the most out of your winter/indoor training with these.
