Travel Roller has had the privilege to be apart of the journey with 2006 NFL Superbowl Champion Dan Federkeil and 2014 CFL Grey cup contender. He was the original inspiration to create the Travel Roller XL before any other larger roller like it was ever created in 2007. Inspired by Dan’s 6″6 structure, Travel Roller Created custom rollers for Dan that he brought with him to the NFL to keep him mobile and supple from the sheer volume of play, practice and to recover from injury. Over the years the Travel Roller XL was created with a larger diameter 5.4 inches VS the Travel Roller 4.3. The XL has the minimal amount of foam with a larger diameter designed for larger athletes skeletons with out compromise in the firm density.
Because not all bodies are created equally, bigger guys should be using bigger rollers. Travel Roller 4.3 is designed for people under 6″4 and the Travel Roller XL is designed for people above 6″4.
We wish Dan and his family infinite success health and prosperity and are happy to be apart of the journey -Bring home the Win!
He may be added to the list of few Football player to win a Superbowl and the Grey cup in football history. WOW. Go Calgary Stampedes GO!!
