The Garmin Tacx Antares Rollers are the preferred way to train indoors while refining a smooth pedal stroke. The 4" drums are made from heavy-duty polymer and have a tapered shape that helps keep the wheels centered on the rollers and prevent slipping off.
An innovative sliding framework means the Antares is quick and easy to set up and collapses down for easy storage.

The Tacx Antares rollers have been a pleasant surprise. They are well made, lightweight and ride smoothly. They are also relatively quiet. I prefer these to my Cycle Ops fluid 2 trainer. These compare well to more expensive aluminum drum rollers that I had many years ago. It took about 5 minutes to be steady, and the rollers get easier to ride with each session. I am not doing any roller tricks yet, but riding with no hands is a near term possibility.
The assembly instructions could be better. Garmin should make an assembly video to illustrate setting the length adjustment.
What I like about these Tacx rollers is the smaller adjustments you can make to the length.
This helps to get the most stable balance for doing things like no hands or standing.
They make the basic roller noise, but they aren't as loud as my old rollers.
The one thing I don't like is the bounce and slack in the band, and how it sometimes hits the latches.
Overall, they are good rollers for getting your spin down with out too much bounce.
These are simple rollers. Easy to set up and easy to get acclimated to. They arrived on time and perfectly packaged. I prefer these to my wahoo and are great for a quick workout or a quick warmup before a ride. I would replace these if they ever broke.
