I’ve used the Omnium for all my warm-ups at the World Cups this year. Using the trainer exclusively for warm-ups is a little new for me but it’s good practice for Rio. The Omnium packs well in my EVOC bike case (my small frame size makes that possible) although it can probably be checked separately for travel. It’s the best [trainer] out there.
No assembly needed. Once out of the box I was up and riding in less than 3 min. You’ll welcome the ease of set up, road like feel, progressive resistance, portability and the incredibly well made carrying bag!
I was impressed by the construction as well as the anodized color. The quick release is hardy, closes and opens smoothly, and the ride is extremely quiet. The rollers are 5.5” wide, ample area for a secure ride regardless if you’re spinning along or sprinting out of the saddle. In addition to the easy of use I became aware of some riding technique flaws I couldn’t feel on my other trainer. Why? Because the rear wheel floats, moving in a natural way, unlike my other trainer where the rear wheel is held in position. As for the feel of a full on workout; I was easily able to ramp up my wattage in my Vo2 workouts immediately feeling the progressive resistance come into play.
Thank you all for a wonderful product.
