    Maintain your fitness without refinishing your floors.

    When we're riding indoors the noise, the vibrations, and the pool of sweat on the floor are all signs of a good ride. The more the better, right? Of course, not everyone appreciates it like we do. Well-liked neighbors, landlords, and loved ones certainly deserve deference. It is for these people that the Kinetic by Kurt Trainer Mat is made.

    The mat is made from half-inch thick closed-cell foam. It's thick enough to indent but thin enough not to feel mushy. It's also a good thickness for masking floor imperfections. The finish is textured on top, smooth on the bottom. The bottom is better for sticking to floors while the top helps prevent that pooling sweat from rolling off. The top is also slightly absorbent, so dripped chain lube won't slide off.

    The Trainer Mat is also fairly big at 72in long by 36in wide. That's longer than your bike, plus the trainer. It rolls up to an 8in diameter to make storage easy.

    • Preserve your floors and relationships with a trainer mat
    • Reduces scuffing and sweat damage on the pain cave's floor
    • Absorbs chain lube and perspiration
    • Thickness effectively effaces floor imperfections
    • Item #KIN0005

    I named my mat, Matt

    This is a very solid mat. I do see some previous reviews that complain about tearing but I have not had that issue and have really abused it. Keeps your trainer from slipping on wood floors and keeps the sweat off.

    No issues at all.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    It sounds like there's some mixed reviews here. I have 2 of these mats and they both have held up very well. The others must have been lemons. It's a great mat that keeps things clean and quiet.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'm really surprised to see the negative reviews for this. I've had the mat for 3 years under my trainer and it does what you would expect : keeps sweat off of the floor and adds a bit of padding. It has survived being moved, rolled up, and generally abused over the years. I have this and the Cycleops version and would say they are comparable depending on what you want. The Kinetic is longer with a bit more padding, which is why it is now under our treadmill. Overall, it does what it was designed to do.

    Good Solid Mat

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Not sure what type of roids or road rage some folks are experiencing when using this mat. I purchased it two years ago and aside from a few idententations (Keo cleats) the mat has held up well and has done its job. Keeps the sweat off my burba carpet and my Kinetic rock n' roll trainer perfectly aligned.

    Good Solid Mat

    It's a mat, keeps carpet clean

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    To be perfectly honest, this is the first training mat I have ever bought. I did notice on the first use that the mat did get indents in it if I stepped on it with my Leo cleats, but I didn't tear the mat. That said, I've stopped stepping on the mat with my shoes on, no big deal.

    Looks good, and cleans up easily if it gets dirty.

    Opposing viewpoint 4.5 stars if possible

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I didn't get this mat from Backcountry, rather straight from Kinetic a few years ago. I've used it for my KK Road Machine as well as Cycleops rollers. I think it does a wonderful job of keeping your floor clean and protected! I roll it up and travel with it regularly and haven't experienced the ripping/quality issues everybody else has. My only gripe is that the foam is textured on the top with small worm wood style grooves/channels all over (you can see this clearly in the photo). This is probably to increase traction or grippyness or vibration reduction who the hell knows, but you can't effectively wipe it off. Once a month or so I scrub and hose it off with soap and water. Not a huge deal.


      I rolled this out and used it twice. When I went to roll it up it was already torn. I expected a little more in the way of durability. Its really just thin cheap foam without much integrity which, in my opinion, isn't worth the investment.
      I only did Sufferfest Angels and Sufferfest Revolver. What would happen if I attempted Sufferfest Local Hero?
