Nashbar Parabolic Rollers

Have you ever been envious of a rider's silky smooth cadence? We'd wager big bucks it came from riding rollers. And with the Nashbar Parabolic Rollers you'll have the perfect means to sharpen fitness, improve bike handling skills, as well as eliminate any roughness from your pedal stroke. As an added bonus, especially for those totally new to roller riding, the parabolic-shaped drums with ramped edges are the ideal introduction as their design makes it quite easy to stay in the center of the rollers while riding. Sealed bearings ensure super smooth operation while still being quiet enough to enjoy your favorite tunes or videos without cranking the volume. But don't think of using rollers just for indoor training, take them to a race and find out how awesome they are for getting warmed up!

Riding rollers is a perfect way to keep your mind occupied and engaged throughout a workout - balance and riding in a straight line are key - while the fitness and buttery pedal stroke will pay dividends when you hit the roads or trails outdoors.

  • Parabolic shape of the roller drums makes it easier to stay in the center of the rollers
  • Sealed bearings guarantee a smooth, efficient pedaling action that more closely simulates riding on the road than other rollers do
  • Lightweight design folds up easily for storage and transport
  • Fits wheelbases from 37" to 43"

    Comments about Nashbar Parabolic Rollers:

    I had been eyeing a set of rollers and finally pulled the trigger last time they had free shipping.

    Glad I did! I'm brand new to rollers but they do promise to be a great workout! Pretty quiet compared to the mag trainer I had before as well. I ran normal road tires.

    Tips for newbies that worked for me:
    - Mid-range gear
    - High cadence
    - Look ahead at a wall or TV

    Once I was able to keep myself from looking down they were relatively easy to ride! Side guides are a life saver - along with a pole to hang onto.

    Only thing I wish they did better was stand up on their own when folded. If they stretched the frame on the front wheel end to match the length (when folded) to the end of the rear roller it would be perfect! Then you could fold it up, roll it on the back roller wherever - tip it up and done! Silly complaint - goes to show how good it is otherwise.

    Comments about Nashbar Parabolic Rollers:

    Easy setup out of the box. Up and running in 10 minutes. Steep initial learning curve but was rolling steadily after 20 min of immersion training. The conical rollers are very helpful in keeping you on board. It is noisier than I expected. Not deafening but it dominates the room.

    Comments about Nashbar Parabolic Rollers:

    These are great. Increase your resistance by just up shifting. It forces you to learn to be smooth and keep your upper body quiet. The parabolic edges help keep you on the drums, but if you are sloppy you will still have trouble. I put it next to a work table to help me get started. Great bang for the buck. I use some spin videos from YouTube to help me do interval workouts indoors until it warms up a little more.

      A great product and at a great price. I shopped a lot for this purchase and it took me a long time to decide. I opened it, set it up and started using in just a matter of minutes. Now it is my go too piece of indoor equipment.

        Comments about Nashbar Parabolic Rollers:

        These are awesome! They're my first rollers and it only took me 10 minutes to get used to them, I still use the wall when getting on the bike so I can clip in but as soon as I start pedaling I let go. It's very comfortable to ride on, I have them sitting on a board of plywood in my bedroom. They don't seem to be very loud either. I think they're perfect!! I love using them before work to get my lymph pumped and sweat out :). I'm using a size 54 2015 Specialized Allez on them and have had no problems at all.

          Great piece of equipment. Setup took five minutes. Used 5 or 6 times and an awesome workout. Parabolic rollers are great (and much safer) for beginners.

          • Chatters

          Best Uses

          • Road Bikes

          Comments about Nashbar Parabolic Rollers:

          These rollers are a great way to keep on the bike when weather doesn't permit. I have been using them daily all winter and have enjoyed the workout. The only issue I have with them is they have a chatter that comes and goes when riding at the center of the rollers. I don't know if there is a balance issue, an out of round issue, or a natural frequency issue, but the rollers will cause a chatter that lasts for 30 seconds or so then goes away then returns, on and on. Riding close to the edge or the roller reduces the chatter but also limits the useable area of the rollers. Other than that, I have no complaints, and I would have rated them higher otherwise.

            This is my first foray into rollers. The parabolic shape seems to help keep my on course. They are smooth and quiet and I enjoy using them much more than my indoor trainer.

              I have two sets of rollers at home that cost quite a bit more, the wife and I use them.
              I wanted a set of rollers to keep at the office and saw this one, figured for office use it would do just fine...
              it is much better quality than I was expecting....unpack, unfold, set the front roller to your bikes length, hook up the band to the front roller and ride... quick and easy...you will not do better for money
