A few handy guides to help get you started with our rocker plates.
ROCKER PLATE TECHNIQUE TIP
RIDING OUT OF THE SADDLE
Pick a low cadence of 50-60 to help with timing and keep your eyes forwards, not looking down.
Keep your arms relaxed and lift out of the saddle. The Omnirocker will lean to the side of your leading foot. This is normal, just like when riding freely outside. What is not normal is that your upper body will lean the same way.
You want to move your upper body back to a more central position above the Omnirocker. This is achieved by applying slight pressure to the side of the handlebars opposite to the leading foot.
Now repeat as the leading foot changes sides. You should feel the bike swinging freely from side to side beneath you. Think rhythm, 1... 2... 1... 2... 1... 2... Once you get the timing right, it will feel like you are dancing on the bike.
If you are struggling with this tip, try reducing the pressure of the suspension balls to give a looser rocking motion.
How to tip
GETTING ON AND OFF
Hold your bike with one hand on the handlebars and the other on the saddle.
Step on to the pedal, push up and swing your free leg over the rear of the bike, keeping your body weight over the center of the Omnirocker.
Sit on the saddle, place your free foot on the other pedal and ride your bike.
Dismounting the bike is the reverse of getting on. Always try and keep three points of contact with the cycling equipment used.
How should I clean my Omnirocker?
We recommend wiping your Omnirocker and cycling equipment after every ride. A microfiber cloth dampened with some mild diluted antibacterial cleaner is ideal. Then just let it dry naturally.
