The stationary trainer, for many cyclists, exists as something of a personal torture device - reluctantly used when necessary, then stored away to gather dust for most of the year. During Winter months, it may see heavy use keeping its owner in shape for the coming Spring, then occasionally hefted to important races and events in warmer months.
Generally, there is not much to be excited about with stationary trainers. They are heavy pieces of equipment, often clumsily designed and awkward to use. Feedback Sports' Omnium is a stunning exception: a trainer that you just might be excited to use, and thus use more often to elevate your cycling experience.
The Omnium's versatility is matched only by its ease of use, enabling its usefulness across a variety of cycling disciplines and scenarios. Setup is quick and easy, and requires no tools at all. The fork mount includes adapters for maximum versatility, compatible with quick release, 12 and 15mm thru bolt, and boost axle standards. The Omnium's adjustable frame design accommodates a wide range of wheel diameters and tire sizes; whether you're riding road, mountain, or cyclocross (or all three), this is the trainer for you. The rear wheel rollers include an Internal Progressive Resistance unit to allow for an incredibly wide range of efforts for such a small package. When not in use, the Omnium folds down to just 26" in length; and at a mere 13.8 pounds, lifting it won't require a second thought. If this weren't enough, Feedback includes a heavy duty tote bag for convenient transportation and storage.
As with all Feedback products, the Omnium is impeccably designed and finished with high attention to detail, featuring lightweight, high strength aluminum construction. The Omnium is covered by a 3-year warranty.
