Closest ever to a real road feel

- True to size
So yeah, I really feel like I need to tell someone about these because they are awesome. I guess I’ll start of by saying that I absolutely hate trainers. Turbo’s are too stiff, and rollers require too much paying attention or you do an epic crash. The Nero Rollers are the first trainer I’ve ever used that I actually like. From the beginning, the unboxing was simple. They come fully assembled and only need folded out and adjusted for your bikes wheel base. It is the same as any other roller in this respect. The front axle goes over or just behind the front roller. Once this is done, you can actually ride if you want to. For the interactive (smart) part, it’s super simple. Plug the supplied cord into the rollers and pair them up to the program of your choice. I used zwift via my iPhone. It is worth mentioning that the power output accuracy on this trainer isn’t supposed to be great. I honestly never tried it because the trainer automatically searched for and linked with my Assioma power meter pedals, and used them as a default for setting itself. The trainer worked quite well with zwift. There was a slight delay between the screen and the felt resistance on the trainer, but not much. Since I don’t watch the screen that closely, it’s not going to bother me a bit. I guess for the part that really sold me on these... The ride quality is great! These aren’t you daddy’s rollers. Unlike every set of rollers that I’ve been on, these don’t try to trow you off just because you reach for your water bottle. You can even ride out of the saddle! Don’t get me wrong, you can still crash, but it’s noting like a typical set of rollers. The bike simply feels like a bike on these, and with the interactive programs available, these are as close to riding outdoors as I’ve ever found.
