The CycleOps Starter Pack contains a nice turbo trainer mat and a silent, durable turbo trainer tyre. These parts make indoor cycling an even better experience.
The CycleOps Trainer Mat protects your floor from sweat and damage. It also provides your trainer with a more stable surface. It prevents the turbo trainer from shifting around during your training. The CycleOps Trainer Mat also dampens the noise produced by the turbo trainer, so the people around you aren't bothered by your training.
The CycleOps Race Trainer Tyre is specifically made for use with indoor trainers. The tyre reduces the chances of over-heating, slipping, and lowers wear. The CycleOps Race Trainer Tyre is also considerably more quiet than a regular road bicycle tyre. Note that the trainer tyre is only suitable for use on the turbo trainer.
