Your workout strikes the right tone when you're on Kurt Kinetic's Rock and Roll with Road Machine Trainer. Its side to side flex allows you to simulate a more natural ride that engages your core muscles in addition to your legs. With the included Kurt Road Machine Trainer unit, you can customize your workout with efficient resistance whether you're sweating through intervals or simply spinning easy after a long day at the office. And, thanks to the super-stable oversize frame with removable legs for storage, you can stand up and sprint with confidence.

This is my first trainer, so I don't have much to compare it to. However, I've found that the ability to rock the bike really helps replicate road feel. You're also force to pay more attention to your core position or else you'll "tip" the bike over (it won't really fall thanks to the legs on the unit, but you'll definitely feel awkward). All in all, a great way to stay in the saddle over the winter.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
