Charles McNall and team have taken to Kickstarter this week to launch their new next-generation cycling rollers, aptly named Crown Roller. “Physics, Engineering, and Design meet to create a better cycling roller that is naturally stable and maintains your true bike fit.” Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the unique design of the rollers and the benefits to cyclists.
The Cycling Rollers are now available to back from $399 or £307 via Kickstarter with shipping throughout the United States expected to take place next month for super early bird backers and during November and December for those that join the campaign a little later.
“Crown Rollers are stable because your tire will seek the path of least resistance. The larger diameter section at the center of the roller is the easiest to ride, so that is where your wheel wants to go. Technical Note: When buying rollers, larger rollers have less rolling resistance (easier.) Smaller rollers have more rolling resistance (harder.) This is due to the deformation of the tire on the roller. See why Crown Roller is so clever? Why isn’t the rear roller crowned? Testing. We experimented with every conceivable roller shape and positional combination to optimize stability for both new and experienced riders.”
