Feedback Sports Omnium Portable Trainer
Feedback SportsOmnium Portable Trainer

A trainer to take with you.

Weighing just 14 pounds, complete with a heavy-duty padded tote bag, and folding up small enough to fit smoothly into an overhead storage bin, the Feedback Sports Omnium Portable Trainer is versatile enough to use at home or take on the road. Setup is completely tool-free, thanks to the unique three-part folding design, and the Omnium’s length and height can be adjusted to fit everything from the most slacked-out DH rig to a tight ‘n’ tidy crit machine.

Similarly, the fork mount fits thru-axles and quick-release forks of all sizes—even Boost—and the magnetic Internal Progressive Resistance system provides smooth and even resistance that’s as good for pre-race warmups as it is for putting in some winter base miles. It’s virtually silent, too, so you can spin without driving your significant other or apartment neighbor totally nuts.

You wont be Disappointed

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I struggled for a couple weeks or more as to what type of trainer to buy, glad I found this one on CC. Its a little pricey, but worth it. This is a Great trainer and I love it. It is a workout every time I get on it. Its ready to use right out of the box, simple, portable and comes with its own carry case. The resistance changes with the gear you choose to workout in. You can pedal in granny gear or a hard workout in the big ring gear. Its a good workout.

Simple, easy to setup and use

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Super simple design, comes out of the box ready to setup and use within minutes. Secure clamping on the fork, smooth aluminum rollers with no resistance allow you to use any tire. Great option for race warmups, or spinning away in the basement for winter base training. All-around great option.

Simple

No fluff, no computers, just pedaling. Resistance changes as you move through gears which allows you to sprint/crawl naturally. Very simple set up and very portable.

Works well with boost (110mm) forks.

Do I need to use a standard trainer tire for this, or are the rollers gentle enough that I can run my regular tires while riding?

Use any tire you'd like to use. Tires won't wear out against smooth aluminum rollers. Just be sure to run at close to the highest pressure on the sidewall recommendation.

I'm looking for a trainer to ride one-handed while I recover from a broken wrist. How much balance does this one require relative to a standard rear-triangle mounted turbo?

The same. It is quite sturdy. The bike rear end moves sideways, pivoting at the headset about 3/4 to 1" either side, but the bike remains perfectly vertical. It can't come off the rollers. There is no "leaning" at all.

The rear wheel will slide a little bit from side to side if you are laying down power, but because the fork is locked in, the trainer is stable enough to hold with one hand.

Bought this for my momma who recently had surgery but wanted to get back into riding. So far she loves it! Extremely user friendly- easy set up and break down. Definitely takes a little getting used to, but being able to control your own resistance is a huge plus!

Very portable, super simple set up

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've used this a few times now. I will say it is kind of a hike to get on top of the bike when mounted (I have to clip in one foot and swing it over). It is very stable once you are on the bike, but getting on/off can mean one of the front legs lifting off the ground. It's a bit uneasy at first, but overall for the size of this thing, it is a pretty incredible tool, and takes less than 2 minutes to set up and be training.

How many watts resistance does this trainer allow? Can I do 350W intervals on a standard road bike with, say, a 50/12 high gear?

Hi Kirby, This trainer would work great for 350w intervals in high gear. Not ideal for sprint workouts, but good for up to 700w at 100rpm in a 53/11.

Just what I was looking for

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was looking for something to take with me to warm up before races. The carrying case provided with the trainer is well made and makes the trainer very easy to toss in the car with the rest of my gear. It barely takes up any space and yet, when unfolded for use, feels very solid and substantial. The rollers give a very good level of resistance that lets me hit the effort zones that I want to hit in warming up by simply changing gears.

One tip I've found helpful for faster setup. I used a paint pen to make a line on the sliding track so that I simply slide it to the line, tighten the knob, and the rollers are then at the repeatable perfect distance for me to just toss the bike on. Once you spend the few minutes the first time to get the exact distance right so that the rear tire's weight is spread equally between the rollers, you never then have to do it again if you've marked it.

Your most reliable training partner.

I use this at home, by the side of the road on road trips, and for warm-up and cool down at races. As a pro cyclocross racer, I needed something versatile, sturdy enough for out-of-the-saddle sprinting, able to get a little dirty (because my bike is sometimes a little dirty after races ;-), and lightweight enough to travel all over - even overseas! I called it my ride-saver, for the number of times I used it to warm-up, cool down, or sneak in a quick ride at home. Easy to set-up, easy to store, easy to take on the road.

Great for use in hotel rooms

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I travel for work and was getting tired of lugging my standard fluid trainer up the elevator to my hotel room so I bought the Omnium. It's so easy now to just hold onto it while putting my bike on the elevator and not having to make two trips. Works as described and provides as good a workout as my fluid trainer. I do mostly spinning and intervals indoors and it works great for that type of training. The bag is great and makes transporting the trainer easy. Highly recommend!

This simple fork-mount design is optimized for pre-race warm-up, travel, and those days when life (or the weather) gets in the way of your ride. The Omnium trainer utilizes Internal Progressive Resistance (IPR): delivering a real-road feel with minimal noise.
Internal Progressive Resistance accepts standard QR, 12×100, 15×100 & 15×110 (boost) thru axles, adjustable wheelbase and fork-mount height for various bicycles (road, MTB, Cx)
No tools required to assemble or store-€ simply unfold and fold. Bearings are greased and sealed, requiring no maintenance, it also includes a heavy-duty tote bag for transport and storage!
As a year-round racer, I'm used to lugging around my other trainer and just dealing with the heavy aspect of it. Not saying the trainer I have is bad. This one is simply by far superior and I will not be using the other one ever again. I have used the Omnium for all my warm-ups at all my races this year. The Omnium packs well in my EVOC bike case (my small frame size makes that possible) although it can also be checked separately for travel. It's the best trainer out there.

NEVER Going Back....

hi can it work mtb , my bike size larger

The answer is, Yes! The Feedback Omnium Trainer accommodates wheel sizes 600c – 700c, 26″-29″ and accepts forks w/ standard QR, 12 x 100, 15 x 100 & 15 x 110 (boost) thru axles!

Please contact me directly with any future questions!

Light, easy, solid!

You may recognize the resemblance the Omnium bears to the SportCrafters trainer of the same name. Feedback was able to license the design and make several noteworthy improvements on the already great original. The Feedback omnium sets up in seconds, transports easily (you can wear the storage bag like a backpack) and you don't need to worry about swapping your rear skewer back and forth (risking jumping into a race with a crooked rear wheel.....been there, don't care to do it again). While the resistance probably won't match that of an adjustable stationary trainer, it's great for pre-race warm ups, quick workouts, bike testing, etc. You can't beat the size and weight, and the typical excellent Feedback quality and functionality is all there. Outstanding overall!

Light, easy, solid!

As promised

Well designed, well built, stable, lightweight, go anywhere trainer. Adjustable for bike length and fork type - really well thought out. Great for apartment or condo - or good for throwing in the back of the car for pre-race warm up. Takes up less space than conventional rear wheel mag trainers. Do not hesitate.
