Kreitler rollers are known as the Rolls Royce of rollers and come with a lifetime guarantee. Go to any track cycling meet and you’ll see the riders warming up on Kreitlers and spinning silkily smooth to insane speeds on them.
Despite the hefty price tag the orange square profile tubing does look a bit agricultural, but any thoughts of cheap build quality are instantly dispelled once you start rolling. The ride is wonderfully smooth, the frame bombproof, and they almost egg you on to spin faster and faster.
Designed to be super compact for transporting to races, they fold down small and weigh in at only 6.2kg. But the 230mm rollers are terrifyingly small and even if you’re used to riding rollers, you might find them a little unnerving. Beginners would certainly struggle on them.
