  • Can I fall off my RooDol?
    RooDol is a three roller training system without any sort of fix holder for the bike in order to produce a sensation as realistic as cycling on the road. For that reason, you have the implicit possibilities of falling off when cycling a bike. Though, when cycling of your RooDol the possibilities of falling off are a little less than cycling on the road just because you won't have to deal with any variation on the ground. Despite this all, we strongly recommend you to keep you focused on your cycling when using RooDol bearing in mind that this training system does not include any holder to your bike.

    Each RooDol bench has eight rubber pieces that make an excellent fixing on any surface.
  • In the event of getting off RooDol while cycling, could I be detached of my bike?
    No, you couldn't. When training on a roller system you never could be detached from the bike, as happens when cycling on the road, because you don't accumulate inertia. In the event of getting off the bench with your bike, the wheel would be fixed in the floor and the cycling would just stop.

    The strap works through a groove in the rollers and it is impossible for it to get out when you are using any of the RooDol systems.
