Woman cyclist riding on the Velocity Rocker while using Zwift.


With smooth side-to-side and fore/aft motion, the Velocity Rocker is a rocker plate for indoor training that takes your indoor cycling to a new level. With it you experience a much more realistic ride as your bike moves freely underneath you and your connection to the saddle is more like being outdoors. Less friction means less opportunity for sit bone pain and saddle sores. Subtle fore/aft movement while spinning gives you the sensation of not being locked in place and powerful sprinting and climbing efforts are met with a generous 6.5 inches of fore/aft movement. This is why a Velocity Rocker rocker plate for indoor training brings you much closer to a true simulation of riding outdoors.

Great Product!

I have been incredibly pleased by the Velocity Rocker! The feel and the comfort of my indoor rides is so much better with this equipment. And the quick shipping and responsive customer service are big plusses as well. It did take a ride or two to get used to a rocker plate, but like others who've reviewed below, I'm so glad I made the decision to buy! Last week I rode over four hours in one go. In the past after anything close to that I would have to baby myself for a few days to avoid saddle sores. Not this time! Equipment: KICKR v5 and KICKR Climb. Training software: Wahoo SYSTM

This is the missing link for indoor training!

I have been using this for less than a month now, and I will never go back to riding our indoor trainer on a normal floor. Not only does this fix the annoying problem of the trainer sinking into the soft gym mats, but this provides an extremely useful feedback that resembles outdoor riding accurately. It also helps to work the supportive muscles that a regular trainer neglects. I love this thing!!

Velocity Rocker review

I've already put in about 40 hours on this rocker plate and have been very happy with it. It makes my long indoor rides much more comfortable. I find that I am more engaged and rides are less monotonous. I use a Wahoo Kickr and it integrates smoothly. Leveling to compensate for the Kickr's flywheel was simple and straightforward. The instructions that came with it is very detailed and Albert is available in case you have questions. The surface has a bit of a rough texture which is great for grip. A pro tip is to also place one or two of the included contact pads underneath the front wheel to prevent the board from scuffing your tire. Another tip is to set it up at least 2 ft from the wall on either side for easy access to the inflatable balls. I like to check the pressure almost every other ride since I put a lot of hours on this. I consider this one of the best investments I made this season. I highly recommend!

Velocity Rocker review

Outstanding! The minutes, miles and hours rush by compared to being locked in with no movement. Took a couple of attempts to dial in the perfect inflation for the balloons. I found placing a small level where I could see it while riding helped with this. I can't imagine what significantly more expensive products would add to my experience. I do recommend keeping the front wheel in a block, as opposed to strapping it to the Rocker. The front wheel moved too much for my comfort when I had it strapped in with two straps. With it locked into my triangular Saris wheel block, I enjoy the ride much more. For reference, I am someone who was very comfortable on rollers (two wheels) when I rode them regularly in the past. I was very impressed with the customer service responsiveness prior to my purchase and the progress updates after I made the purchase. Albert and his team have built a high quality, very competitively priced product as well as a company with integrity and great customer service. Equipment: Still old school: Cycleops Fluid2 Trainer.

This is a Game Changer!!!! Everyone should be training on Velocity Rocker!!! Wish I had bought one sooner!!!

Velocity Rocker review

I knew at my first experience with Velocity Rockers, that I was dealing with a high quality company. I sent an email asking some questions about the Rocker Plate and I received a fast and very detailed response that prompted me to make the purchase. After the order was placed, it was shipped almost immediately from California. From the time I placed the order until it was at my front door in Pennsylvania was 6 days, including Christmas day. The product is awesome. First, it was packaged nicely. VR provided good instructions for setting it up. My first ride was a little tough to get used to, but after I got it properly balanced, then the subsequent rides were just awesome. It provide a lot of fluid motion from side to side and fore/aft. You can increase or decrease the ball pressure to dial in the amount of side motion to your liking. It is smooth and quiet. This unit was a game changer in terms of adding some joy to boring indoor training. It not; only adds some realism, but it makes it more comfortable. I love my VR rocker plate and would highly recommend this product. In addition, it comes at a price that can't be beat as compared to other companies. Lastly, the after-sale customer service is top notch. I can't say enough positive things about this company and product.


This thing is a game changer. I actually thought I was going over hills (I use the Tacx neo2 trainer with Tacx software). I'm able to increase my raining mileage dramatically and without pain. Feels REAL, feels comfortable. I considered building my own, but after adding up the price to do it, I went with velocity. Great value! Best money I've spent in a long time!

Ride Without Compromise!

The side-to-side rocking motion of a rocker plate allows the saddle to stay under the sit bones. This minimizes the friction otherwise caused by a fixed bicycle trainer and stationary saddle, reducing the likelihood of developing saddle sores. Additionally, the proper alignment of the ankle, knee, and hip with the side to side movement puts less stress on your joints and can help you achieve a more powerful pedal stroke.

Realistic Ride

Riding in a virtual cycling environment like Zwift is a big improvement over years past. However, having your bicycle move freely underneath you while riding on the Velocity Rocker feels much more realistic and completes the simulated experience.


Engage Your Core and Stabilizing Muscles

The Velocity Rocker for indoor cycling helps you to engage your upper body stabilizing muscles and core just as you do when riding outside. Because the Velocity Rocker allows you to comfortably ride longer due to greatly reduced saddle/sit bone friction, the amount of time you work your core also increases significantly.

Protect Your Bike

Although rare, anecdotal evidence suggests stresses placed on a bicycle frame from hard efforts on a fixed bicycle trainer may cause frame fatigue leading to structural damage. This is due to torsional forces absorbed by the frame. These forces are dissipated through the motion of the rocker plate, especially when the rocker plate has fore/aft motion.

Moving The Velocity Rocker With The Smart Trainer And Bicycle Attached

Moving the Velocity Rocker with the easy-to-install caster wheels makes cleaning your pain cave or relocating it a breeze (Pain Cave Upgrade Package). No need to take off your bike which can be a nuisance with a direct-drive smart trainer and a dangling greasy chain. Then there’s the hassle of removing the trainer just to have to set it up all over again. See this video and/or read the instructions in the FAQs section for details on how to install and use the caster wheels.

 Pain Cave Illumination

When your indoor training session requires the added ambience of a lively setting, turn on your programmable and integrated RGB LED lights (Pain Cave Upgrade Package). Control them with the downloadable LED lights app or remote control. You can sync the lights to your favorite music (see video) and change the color scheme at will.

Compatibility With Bicycle Trainers, Kickr Climb and Front Risers

It is highly compatible with most new and old trainers on the market. If you are unsure if yours will fit or if you have an unusually large bike, feel free to contact us to check for compatibility. The Wahoo Kickr Climb works well with the Velocity Rocker as do all front risers. (The Elite Riser may need some modifications)

Support Rails For Enhanced Rigidity

We make the Velocity Rocker to last! Each unit is reinforced with L-shaped aluminum support rails. Even though 3/4 inch, 13-layer cabinet grade baltic birch plywood is the best you can use, we want to ensure that the top plate maintains its rigidity for years to come. No other rocker plate provides this feature.

Additional Features

A built-in spirit level is installed for easier set up. Additional protective features such as rubber feet and rubber pads for trainer contact points are included as well.
