KOM Cycling RPV2 Full-Motion Rocker Plate

For those who are passionate about indoor cycling trainers, there’s nothing like a rocker plate. Basically, these indoor cycling gizmos are designed to make it possible for your “once-static” indoors cycling trainer to become less static by allowing it to pivot laterally so that your bike can tilt from side to side, which then allows the bike itself to sway underneath you just like it would whenever you’re riding outside in the real world, more specifically when you’re out of the saddle. With that said, for anyone who enjoys indoors cycling on a regular basis, getting yourself a rocker plate is the best you can do, as that ultimately allows you to have your indoors cycling trainer more accurately simulate the real-life motion of riding a bike. On that note, consider getting yourself the KOM Cycling RPV2 Full-Motion Rocker Plate.

The KOM Cycling RPV2 is a full-motion rocker plate designed for indoors cycling trainers that helps riders move with their indoors bike by offering both front and back movement as well as side-to-side movement to their cycling trainer.

To be even more specific, the KOM Cycling RPV2 is basically the company’s second-generation rocker plate, which is based on their already popular RPV1 Rocker Plate (which is their previous and original rocket plate model).

That said, in addition to the 13 degrees of horizontal float already offered by the company’s original RPV1 Rocker Plate, the RPV2 also adds a total of nine inches of forward and aft motion (fore/aft movement) to their bike. Thanks to that, indoor riders are able to move better with their bike rather than against it, and that basically helps to decrease static pressure on your joints while you crank out your indoor sessions on indoors cycling trainer, no matter if you own a Zwift, a TrainerRoad, or even a Wahoo SUF.

So, with all that said, let’s have a more detailed look at this full-motion rocker plate and check out everything it has to offer to those who are passionate about indoors cycling trainers.

DESIGN & BASIC SPECS

Starting with the KOM Cycling RPV2’s exact size, this full-motion rocker plate actually features a reasonably compact size, measuring a total of 64 inches long by 34.5 inches wide (at its widest side) and 11.5 inches wide (at its narrowest side) by just 6 inches tall, which ultimately makes it easier for indoors cycling enthusiasts to have the rocker plate installed at just any corner of any room.

In addition, this full-motion rocker plate weighs a total of 66 lbs. which, together with your indoors cycling trainer / bike installed on top of it, makes the whole set-up fairly stable, even when doing your indoors cycling workouts at higher intensities.

On top of its main improvement of offering indoor riders a total nine inches of forward and aft motion over the 13 degrees of horizontal float that were already offered by the company’s original RPV1 Rocker Plate, the RPV2 also comes with some enhanced durability and thickness to its whole structure.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

So, for its 13° of horizontal float-motion, the RPV2 works based on a set of easily-adjustable inflatable rocker balls, which provide you, the rider, with constant and realistic feedback with every pedal stroke on your bike, thus allowing you to receive a transformative and fully immersive trainer experience.

In addition to that, that same inflatable rocker balls mechanism is also combined with an added spring loaded plate that’s attached by three roller bearing rails, which is exactly what allows this full-motion rocker plate to achieve its nine inches of forward and aft motion, which then allows the RPV2 to create that smooth forward and aft motion for your bike.

Thanks to that, indoor riders are able to move better with their bike rather than against it, and that basically helps to decrease static pressure on your joints while you crank out your indoor sessions on indoors cycling trainer.
