WAHOO KICKR

It has been about three years since my last Wahoo KICKR experience and was nothing less than I expected, the newly updated kicker far exceeded my expectations. I was able to give the KICKR an on-site demo thru a Wahoo Experience Station at my local TREK store in Northern Kentucky, that had a virtual Zwift. I demoed and tested all my available Wahoo Products including the TICKR, Blue SC, Elemnt Bolt, iPad Pro (TrainerRoad, Cycleops Virtual Trainer/Rouvy and Zwift) that effortlessly paired/linked with all products I bring to the table. The new KICKR delivers an improved experience than before. The KICKR is able to pair with the new CLIMB so you can experience for the sense in the sense well on any virtual training course (stay tuned for early this spring). The larger flywheel allows for improved responsiveness and replication of riding on the road with new algorithms to improve that experience. The KICKR features additional compatibility with 12×142/ 148 axles for disc brakes. There is an upgraded construction for no movement whatsoever even when fully engaging/standing with both legs. The KICKR has accurate power management +/- 2% and is capable of generating up to 2000 Watts of power. As I expected, it has the widest ranges of wireless devices with all Bluetooth smart, Ant+ and Ant+ FE-C wireless control and data transfer devices. While Wahoo Fitness has it has its own app, it is compatible with all popular training software/platforms, as I currently use Zwift, Sufferfest, TrainerRoad and Rouvy most of the time. While the cost is around $1200, the accurately and realistic the road experience, ride on any continent, in the comfort of your own home is well worth the price. The Wahoo KICKR is a superior smart trainer that provides the most realistic experience anywhere in the world with effortless set up and unmatched construction/durability for thousands of miles.
