TruTrainer Rollers

TruTrainer rollers may look like regular rollers but they don’t feel like them. In fact, they are unlike any trainer you have ever ridden. The secret, aside from their extraordinary quality, is a high speed tubular flywheel contained inside the rear roller. The flywheel duplicates the cyclic inertial resistance experienced during each pedal stroke as well as inertial resistance to continuous acceleration, while viscous drag forces between the flywheel and roller simulate wind and rolling resistance.
· Ultra-smooth ride with a natural “road” feel.
· Pedal out of the saddle in a natural manner.
· Coast for long periods (30 seconds) to stretch, adjust your shorts, or restore blood flow to critical areas.
· Mental fatigue and boredom are significantly reduced; allowing you to train longer

Walz Caps – The Dodge Cap Limited Edition

Call it cardinal or just “dodge-ball red,” it’s a true Walz-quality cap in premium crimson fabric featuring a single, sharp white racing stripe that stops at the bill. Our inaugural “Fast Cap” was designed to evoke the rich red enamel tones of the late 1960s in all their hue and attitude: American-made muscle cars like the 1967 Firebird 400 and the trusted red badge of classic Schwinn models like the Panther and Typhoon.

Designed & built in California of premium cotton/poly fabric, stitched to stay together forever. Features our new Walz “retro-logo” token embroidered on the right temple. Proudly made in USA.

Retail price – $28.99

Ergonomic or lightweight, comfort or classic look, 3T SUPERERGO Team or 3T SUPERLEGGERA Team? Superergo is specifically designed for those riders who spend considerable time holding the bar in the corner section, especially while climbing, and is ideal for those who choose comfort over all. Superleggera is the lightest 3T bar which also offers classic good look with its round shape drops.

3T ZERO25 Team is the lightweight universal seat post with a twist: in fact, the reversible saddle rail clamps transform the post from zero saddle setback to 25 mm setback. Two seat posts in one!

The new 3T APTO Team Stealth stem combines Italian elegance and performance. It features a lightweight, stiff and strong structure. Its reversed bolts clean up the faceplate, while their wide spacing increases the connection to the handlebars. Its double steerer bolts (Titanium in case of the TEAM version) securely hold the stem in place.


The frame everybody’s talking about is aerodynamic and comfortable, designed for fat tyres, disc brakes, and a 1x transmission. It recently got a nomination for the prestigious German Design Award 2018 and won the Interbike Innovation Award 2017. Everyone who looks for aerodynamics, comfort and lightweight will be more than pleased with it!
