Why would you choose a bike trainer? The best reason is: to be able to train in the winter. You can use bicycle trainers in all weather conditions. Whether it is snowing outside, raining or even when the weather is nice; You can always use a cycle trainer and ensure that you stay fit. In this menu you will find both cycle trainers and roller benches. At the bottom of this page you can read more about both products.
In a bicycle trainer, the rear tire is fixed in the bicycle trainer, this is not the case with a roller bench where the bicycle is free. The advantage of a dynamometer is that the cyclist is completely free and therefore really feels like he is cycling. It should also be noted that you can steer on a dynamometer, so you have more energy to correct and to keep a balance. Roll banks are therefore more suitable for advanced cyclists. A bicycle trainer can be used by everyone.
How does a cycling trainer work?
As indicated earlier, the rear tire is fixed at the bicycle trainer. With some cycling trainers it is possible to set the resistance. With other cycle trainers the resistance level is built in, for example by means of a magnetic brake.
