Rain or shine, you're good to train.
You wouldn't normally ride when it's dumping snow in the midst of winter or raining in monsoon fashion when summer storms barrel through. However, you can ride inside your house regardless of the weather, thanks to the Kreitler Kat 1 Training Station providing a means for staying fit during the off-season. Ultimately, it's a great choice for the dedicated cyclist trying to fend off the downturn in physical fitness that inevitably happens in winter, as well as those looking to get in some exercise after work—all without having to leave the house.
The Kat 1 Training Station channels decades of Kreitler's experience constructing precision rollers for dedicated cyclists seeking a means to train indoors. It includes Alloy 4.5 Rollers that are turned on a CNC lathe with near-perfect concentricity, plus premium shield bearings for one of the smoothest and quietest rides available on rollers. The Alloy 4.5 Rollers are a significant upgrade from chaper Challenger Rollers available by Kreitler, providing greater momentum and an increased coasting effect, due to their heavier alloy end caps. Since they use the largest drum available from Kreitler, you'll find the Alloy 4.5 Rollers are easiest to use, with the least amount of resistance while training.
Besides packing Alloy 4.5 Rollers, the Kat 1 Training Station comes with a sturdy steel frame that's foldable for compact storage and adjusts to fit your favorite bike's wheelbase. The powder-coated steel frame provides a sturdy structure that's sure to last for years to come. It comes with a Fork Stand that's great for pushing your cadence to a higher intensity and riding without as much concentration necessary. Other important pieces of kit in the Kat 1 Training System include a Flywheel that mimics the smooth, round pedaling action you'd experience on the road, as well as a Killer Headwind Fan for simulating the air resistance of cycling outdoors.
Please note, the standard frame found in this kit fits bikes with wheelbases of 31.5 to 48 inches without any tools required, meaning it'll work with a variety of road, cross, gravel, and mountain bikes.
