Half roller, half trainer
For nearly 20 years, Sportcrafters has been making private label rollers for CycleOps. Several years ago it developed and patented its ARC Power Modulation Technology which paved the way for its own line of rollers which have been proclaimed some of the smoothest in the industry. The Sportscrafters Omnium trainer is what one may call the 'next generation' of trainer — portable enough to take to the races.
The first thing that you'll notice is that the Omnium features two rollers at the rear rather than a singular drum. This eliminates the wear and tear on your tire so that you won't need to bring a spare wheel to your races. The front fork mounts securely into the stainless steel locking front mount. This set-up means that you won't risk chain alignment issues by repeatedly removing the rear wheel.
Designed and manufactured in Granger, Indiana; the double-wall roller
drums are 4.0" wide. They are lathed for precision runout and balance
and are dynamically spin balanced --they will not distort in heat or
sunlight. The endcaps are molded polycarbonate. The bearings are sealed
and greased and do not require maintenance, so you'll have one less
thing to think about in the cold of winter. These drums set into an
un-scratchable anodized aluminum frame.
The Sportscrafters' Onmium Trainer is available in One size and accommodate wheel sizes 600 to 700c and 26 to 29inch. As drilled they will fit wheelbases from 37.5 to 44inches. It fits into a TSA regulation carry-on measuring 22in x 7in x 6in.

Does this trainer accommodate a thru-axle as well as a q/r?
Hi Dave. Currently Sportscrafters does not have an option for a thruaxle. They plan on developing one, but in the mean-time they suggest using something along the lines of the Thule Thru-Axle adapter to use with Thru-axles.
Does this trainer have resistance?
Yes, that's what the ARC is all about. It increases resistance as it spins faster. They sell a separate trainer without resistance that is geared towards track cyclists who want to spin super fast.
