New KICKR Power Trainer is rated out of 5 by 198.Rated 1 out of 5 by Rabbit Dog from This product is out of my expectation When I got my Kickr, I thought I could put my bike on and start to use it. I was told by the Support Team that I have to purchase a 142x12 adapter to fit my Giant bike so I purchased it. After 1 week, I finally got my adapter and started to install it on my bike and Kickr. My bike is 10 speed and the Kickr has a 11 speed cassette. On the Kickr cassette, from the big rim(1) to small rim (11), my bike chain has problem to stay on rim 8 and rim 9. Then I email to the Support Team, I was told I need to purchase a 10 speed cassette that matches the one on my bike. What’s the point that I as a customer have to spend $1199.99 on a Kickr, and then I was required to spend $29.99 on a 142x12 adapter, and then further spend money on a 10 speed cassette? Why Wahoo Fitness can’t make thing right in the first stage to let customers to order a custom Kickr to fit their bike needed? I have been gone through those hassles for almost 30 days and I accutally used Kickr not even for 7 days. I decided to return the Kickr, a 142x12 adapter, a KICKR Adjustable Desk, and a KICKR Floor Mat all together.Date published: 2017-05-16Rated 5 out of 5 by gasman from Easy to use, great feel. I really enjoy the new Wahoo kickr. It is easy to set up, works really well with Zwift. Really responsive.Date published: 2017-05-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Dshorr from Very Happy! I'm new to bike trainers but this makes indoor riding almost fun. I'm using with TrainerRoad and a Windows computer. It was very easy to set up and pair with my devices such as hr monitor, laptop and cadence sensor that came with the Kickr. I use it on the ERG setting so I don't even have to think about shifting. Great workouts and I'm getting stronger already. It seems very quiet to me. I have no trouble hearing the television or music. Also very stable.Date published: 2017-05-14Rated 5 out of 5 by thorin from Best smart trainer I have had this kicker for little over 1 month now I did go from a wheel on trainer, its night and day difference. All works as it should so far no problems to report, I did buy a refurbished from wahoo but I can't tell it's used the did a great job to make sure it was in perfect shape.Date published: 2017-05-05Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike1234 from Incredible The perfect training tool! Combined with Zwift and this is as good as it gets! Has improved my cycling immenselyDate published: 2017-05-03Rated 5 out of 5 by xl37 from The most realistic trainer I bought kickr two month ago and want to return it right away because it is too loud. However, I am still riding it today and here is why. Wahoo custom service is very good and that put the other company (Tacx) into shame. If I fix the accent slope at 5%, noise is very low with constant power 250. So the noise is in fact a non-issue here. Most important, Kickr is much more realistic than my prior cyclops powerbeam. I love the powerbeam trainer, its reliability and low noise level give me a good two-year training experience. VirtualTraining app from cyclops is a superior app that is second only to zwift. However, the slippage due to the contact between tire and trainer makes the ride feeling somewhat easier than what it should be. With Kickr, I am riding at lower power and feeling more pain, but I am happier and knowing that this is the way it should be. Kickr is built to last, not like those flimsy and buggy trainers from tacx. With the reliability, good customer servicer and excellent training experience, Kickr is the best trainer out there in my opinion.Date published: 2017-04-20Rated 5 out of 5 by rayman54 from Love my new KICKR!! I got the New KICKR just about a month ago and I really love it. I'd been using a Kurt Kinetic Road Machine for 5 years. Even though that was a great trainer, one can't beat the smart aspects of the KICKR. I've been predominately using it in erg mode with the free trial of TrainerRoad. My longest ride to date has been 2:45. It feels smooth and can provide far more resistance than the Road Machine. I've also done some rides with the Wahoo IOS app, though I don't like the small for factor of the phone. I use a MacBook Pro with TrainerRoad instead of a phone, much better to see the progress and such. The only complaint I have is with respect to integration with Golden Cheetah ( a free software program that allows for workout analysis as well as controlling smart trainers. I can't yet get GC to see my KICKR. All the training apps out there are great, but require a monthly subscription. That can add up after a while. I wish that Wahoo would work with GC to provide for a seamless GC integration so that those wishing to use Golden Cheeth can do so and not incur the monthly charges of all the other trainer apps.Date published: 2017-03-15Rated 5 out of 5 by MaxG from Excellent product I replaced my Elite Trainer for the Kicker. What a great difference in performance, its readings are completely accurate. I use my trainer everyday. Great job!Date published: 2017-03-10
