Kreitler roller: Dyno-Myte or Dyno-Lite?(4 posts)

Kreitler roller: Dyno-Myte or Dyno-Lite?Qubeley
Apr 10, 2003 8:46 PM
I have narrowed down to these two models.
I will only use the roller for spinning and recovery rides. Just want to improve my spin.
Anybody has either model? How "hard" are the Dyno-Myte? Is the Dyno-Lite too easy that you spin out quickly? I am not very powerful rider.
Which one would you recommend for my purpose?
Thanks for any input.

Don't forget that reviews of both these products are just a couple of clicks away.

Both these sets were designed with small diameter rollers to be harder than a "standard" set. Along the scale of Hard, Harder, Hardest, the Lyte is meant to be harder, and the Myte is meant to be hardest. With that in mind, if you're able to spin either of them out, your a better man than I. Both will likely meet your purposes.

You're already looking in the highest quality (and most expensive line) of rollers, so you can't really go wrong in either choice. If you're in a warm climate and they will only see occasional use, get the cheaper one (still not cheap).

my 2 cents.

Been using the poly-lytes for two winters now.djg

The poly-lyte is the same as the dyno-lyte, but with pvc endcaps rather than AL endcaps (sames drums, same rails). I will say that the plastic endcaps are NOT showing significant wear after two seasons--seems like a good savings to me. These rollers offer considerably more resistance than larger diameter rollers. Ride them at 100 psi, put it in the big ring, and you'll be working. Really. I cannot say that you won't prefer the smaller ones, but these will certainly allow you to get your heart rate up and for spinning and recovery rides I cannot imagine you'll use your big gear, much less that you'll spin it out.

I've used the Dyno-Mites for years. They're great rollers, but too tough for "recovery rides."

I've tried a friend's Dyno-Lites, they're more appropriate for easy spinning.

Check Kreitler's web site and it'll tell you the same.
