ELITE ARION MAG (Elite Arion Mag) is a 3-roller with load
When you start riding a road bike, many people consider buying a roller stand because they want to create an environment where you can easily ride a road bike for daily training.
I decided to buy a roller stand because I wanted to create an environment where I could ride a road bike every day. And, it is lost by a fixed roller or three rollers, but the fixed roller and the three rollers each have the following characteristics.
- Fixed rollers are usually overloaded, but three rollers often have no load
- With fixed rollers, rear tires wear quickly, so it is necessary to prepare practice tires or wheels for rollers.
- The 3 rollers can also be used for applied training such as dancing and practice of balance such as let-go driving.
I tried to list three main features, but to summarize the features of the fixed roller and the three rollers,
- Fixed rollers are mainly suitable for power training applications
- The 3 rollers are good for comprehensive training on road bikes
I think that it can be said.
I think that road bike beginners like me should train with 3 rollers.
However, the three rollers do not have a load function.
In Japan, I was thinking of 3 rollers of the classic Minoura, but when I was looking for 3 rollers on the net, I found a load of 3 rollers called ELITE ARION MAG (Elite Arion Mag) in this article and decided to buy it.
Elite ARION MAG Features
- With load function from no load to load 2 stages
- Roller-like roller shape at both ends of the roller to prevent de-ringing
- Antistatic plastic resin reduces noise and tire wear
- App My E-Training enables virtual training of power, heart rate, speed, time, etc.
- Power training of 500W or more is also possible at maximum load
It is ideal to have a load function with three rollers.
In order to prevent the second de-ringing, both ends of the roller are raised in a radial shape, so I think that it is a good point for 3 roller beginners to be able to return to the center of the roller without de-ringing even if it is unsorated during training.
Benefits of training with a loaded 3-roller
You can ride a road bike every day.
I think it's great to be able to create an environment where you can ride a road bike every day, regardless of the season or weather.
Especially in Japan, it is cold in winter and there are many rainy days during the rainy season, and there are only a limited number of times when you can ride a road bike, such as troublesome to go outside on a road bike, so I think that it is appreciated that you can ride a road bike every day without being affected by such external factors.
I'm not good at it, so it's a very thankful environment to be able to ride a road bike and exercise every day even if I'm in my room. Moreover, since it is not seen by other people in the room, when riding three rollers, there is no change into a cycle jersey, etc., and I ride three rollers over a road bike with a sweat in my room.
All you need to change clothes is to wear shoes for the binding pedal because it is a binding pedal.
As for me who is troublesome, I put a road bike on it and can ride it immediately while spreading three rollers on the floor without collapsing so that I can ride a road bike as soon as possible. I think that it is the secret to ride a road bike every day continuing to make it a system that you can ride a road bike casually.
The load function allows you to train with a constant quality under load.
I have been training at the second stage of the load, but I think that it is a very good exercise every day because I can train with a load as if I were always climbing a slope of about 4 to 5%.
The load function was more effective than I thought, and in the beginning I immediately breathed up and it was very hard.
The muscles in my legs quickly became pan pans, and at the beginning I was in a muscle pain state every day.
Recently, I feel that I have a little endurance, but I still have only a few minutes if it is a gear ratio of the position that keeps around 27 km around cadence 90 in the second stage of load.
If you stop pedaling, the roller will stop immediately by resistance, so you will not be able to rest.
It is training like climbing a hill every day, so you can train strength and cardiopulmonary function.
Daily aerobic exercise is very good for your health.
That's what I felt while riding three rollers every day for three months.
Being able to exercise every day works very well for your health.
When I work like a web writer and run a web writer, I tend to live a life of day and night reversal, but after I start riding a road bike every day with three rollers, I can regain a life that was natural but not natural at night to sleep properly and wake up in the morning, and I can spend very fulfilling days every day.
Application training is possible with 3 rollers
Since the three rollers can be trained in a state closer to actual running, you can also ride such as dancing or letting go (I can not let go on the roller stand yet), and you can practice practice that you are not conscious of in actual running.
Some people who are used to three rollers practice one-legged pedaling and one-handed and one-legged pedaling.
I'm still three months old, so I can't do that, but I'd like to practice like that eventually.
You can practice how to ride with your entire body in mind.
When it came to practicing on the roller stand, I often see the strengthening of the legs and hips, but what I felt when I was riding three rollers every day was that I was able to feel that I was riding a road bike using my entire body unexpectedly.
For example, if you loosen the power of the hand holding the steering wheel and ride three rollers in a state close to letting go, you will immediately become undesthened if you are not aware of the trunk such as abdominal muscles and spine.
I think that it is a part that I noticed because I always ride a road bike under the same conditions every day called three rollers.
You can feel the change in your physical condition every day.
If you ride three rollers every day, it is easy to judge whether you are in good or bad physical condition on the day.
When I ride the three rollers, I warm up at around cadence 70 at the beginning with a constant gear ratio at the second stage of the load, but I look at how my heartbeat went up and how my breath went up at that time to determine whether I was in good shape or bad on the day.
When I'm not feeling well, I don't overdo it, I drop my cadence a little bit and train, and when I'm in good shape, I raise one or two gears and train with more load.
All-you-can-ride road bike because it is hard to wear tires
Elite ARION MAG is made of plastic resin rollers, so tire wear is reduced and tire wear is not a problem. In fixed rollers, the rear tires are particularly easy to wear, and it may be necessary to prepare wheels for rollers with practice tires, but this ELITE ARION MAG's three rollers do not require any such thing.
You can train on the roller stand as it is running outside.
Disadvantages of training with 3 rollers with load
I think that there is no disadvantage in training with three rollers with load.
If you dare to raise the disadvantages, I think that it is an environmental aspect such as vibration and noise erythration erys.
I would like to list such disadvantages.
There is some noise and vibration.
First of all, it is about noise, but the volume does not increase so much unless you speed up and rotate the roller itself at high speed. In fact, I train while watching YOUTUBE videos on a PC while riding three rollers, but the volume of YOUTUBE is louder. You can also hear the rollers spinning, but I don't care because the volume such as YOUTUBE is much louder. It becomes an apartment or an apartment, etc., and it is not a volume that becomes a nuisance in the neighborhood.
As for vibration, I think this is largely due to the circumstances of apartments and condominiums.
If it is a wooden apartment with thin walls and floors, vibrations will probably be transmitted to the next room.
If it is a reinforced concrete apartment, I think that the vibration will probably not be transmitted to the next room.
For example, think of it as the vibration level that occurs at the draining stage of the washing machine.
If the floor is flooring, simply laying a carpet or anti-vibration mat will reduce vibrations a lot.
My environment is a reinforced concrete apartment building, and the floor is carpeted with wooden flooring and three rollers, but I think that the vibration is probably not transmitted to the next room. So far, no complaints have come.
There is more sound and vibration than fixed rollers, but there is no sound or vibration more than everyone thinks.
Storage space take up more space than fixed rollers
I think it's a concern for people who want to separate the space to train with three rollers and where to store them.
Elite ARION MAG can be folded in two and made to some extent compact, but still has more proprietary space than fixed rollers. Even if it is folded in two and made independent, a × space of about 50 cm in height and 30 cm in width is required.
In my case, the storage space of the road bike = the training space of the road bike, it is not a real disadvantage because I put the ELITE ARION MAG under the road bike.
This depends on the indoor storage environment and training space of the road bike, so each person.
they are spurned by insination
This is mainly true for me, but when I can ride a road bike indoors, I don't feel like going out and riding a road bike. It is especially cold in February when I am writing this article, and even if the weather is good, I feel that it is better to ride three rollers in the room. When it gets a little warmer, I want to pott with my friends for the first place of the week, but the current situation (February) is enough to ride a road bike with three rollers.
I tried to make an article about what I felt in 3 months when a road bike beginner started riding 3 rollers.
I think that the three rollers are training equipment with quite a big advantage if the vibration in the room can be cleared.
I would like to recommend 3 rollers only for road bike beginners.
