In short: Yes, you ride on top of them while they're rolling. Yes, it can be difficult, especially at first. The three rollers roll as you ride on top of them (spinning at the same speed as your wheels), sort of simulating the road turning by underneath you. Advantages: good to develop a smooth spin, good to develop a sense of balance. Disadvantages: require more concentration than trainers, offer little resistance compared to trainers.
