Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase So far so good! Managed to get it during lockdown so has helped me maintain some level of fitness! It's my first smart trainer and I'm really happy with it. Only thing is that the bluetooth/power occasionally drops out when using ERG mode on Zwift doing workouts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Riding in the Social Distancing Era The Kickr Core Trainer works well and is a welcome addition to my training during this social distancing era. It arrived within a couple of days after ordering and was easy to set up. Would be great to have the option though to purchase with a cassette so it comes all ready to go. I was lucky after a call around to a few bike shops one was able to get one sorted that day for me so I was able to ride it the same day it arrived.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best choice on the market Kickr Core it's really good product and it does what its supposed to do in a simple way. It would be really helpful if it brings the cassete already mounted on the unity, or provide the cassete and the required tool with it, since it would improve the user experience for the normal user. I wouldn't mind to pay a llittle bit more (50euros) to have it included / mounted already, so it could be totally plug'n'play. Make it was an option when cheking out the product? The arrow stickers are starting to pell off only after 12h of usage. Apart from that theres nothing major to point, actually theres nothing negative on the product. Customer support and knowledge database available on Wahoo site is excellent and should be taken as a standart for the industry. If you looking for the best trainer in the market and don't want to spend the value of the higher specs model Kicr, you needs to buy the Kickr Core.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quietest indoor trainer Definitely the quietest trainer I have tried. After testing 3 different “low noise” trainers the Wahoo blew everyone away. For anyone living in a condo or apartment building where noise could be an issue, this trainer is magic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great price performer I received my Kicker Core early. The packaging was solid. It took minutes to setup and attach one of my cassettes. The feel of the Kicker while riding feels real. The only thing is, I’m not getting the jolts through my arms from the front tire. I’m still exploring various power and resistance settings. Another benefit is using my old Wahoo heart monitor with the Kicker. I can control my workouts to maintain a certain heart rate and to build up my endurance. I’ve meant to purchase this a while ago but forgot about it. The main reason was to use exclusively in the winter when it’s impossible to ride a road bike in the snow. With The Covid-19 issue, my decision was final as this was also a great option since gyms are closed and I can get a workout. I thought about the Peloton trainer. But with the subscription service, it was too expensive. Plus, I like being able to hookup any of my bikes and change out cassettes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Kickr Core So glad I bought this! It’s smooth and quiet and definitely works well with Zwift and TrainerRoad which makes training productive AND fun! I highly recommend getting one if you are one the fence. Also, Wahoo customer service is top notch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommend! quiet, sturdy but not bulky. Awesome integration with Zwift if that is your thing. I love it. I am a fairly useless bike mechanic and it took me only an hour or so to get it all set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed my training and progress overal! I was initially hesitant to make this investment on a trainer, but these plans were accelerated because of Covid. Now that I've been using the trainer for the past week and a half, I've been able to really feel the effort (and benefit) of hills, intervals, sprints and competition (I'm currently a Zwift user right now). Also, the reduced noise from the trainer is amazing in the fact that I can now train while my wife and kids sleep and not have them want to kill me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bang for your buck I bought this 18 months ago. I replaced a wheel on smart trainer. I find this much more enjoyable to ride/train on. The erg mode is great. I started having issues with my trainer after ~17.5 months, and Wahoo Support sent me a refurbished replacement at no charge (even though it was outside the warranty period) and had me back up and running in less than a week. Based on my experience, I would be very very likely to recommend Wahoo again. With how much I use it now, in hindsight I might have gone up to a full on Kickr, but the Kickr Core has been great. It's gotta be one of the best values in trainers right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I upgraded from a Tacx Flow and wouldn't look back I began road cycling back in 2018, bought my first and only bike for £200 and began training for the BHF London to Brighton 2018. I was hooked on road cycling from that point forward. Getting out into the countryside in the sunshine is absolutely brilliant, but in the winter months, my bike would hibernate in the garage until spring. I bought a wheel-on Turbo Trainer, a Tacx Flow to help through winter 2019. It was great, but not brilliant. Wheel-on trainers are great for beginner to intermediate cyclists, but I wanted that little bit extra, but got a whole lot more. That's when I decided to upgrade to the Wahoo Kickr Core, and what an upgrade it is. Firstly, if you have experienced a wheel-on trainer like a Tacx Flow, they work well but can be frustratingly delayed when you decide to sprint. Additionally, your tyre can easily slip on the spindle and standing up to pedal can make you feel like you are about to fall off it at any moment. The Wahoo Kickr Core is a direct drive, so every single Watt (power output) is measured and recorded. When you decide to sprint, there is no wasted energy because the connection is directly driven through the chain. Standing up whilst pedaling is rewarding, the Kickr Core's structure and weight means that you are grounded at all times with little to no fear of you falling off it! The build quality is excellent and I can't imagine there are many other trainers which are quite as good as this one, especially for the money. I'm super-happy with my purchase and it's worth every penny. The Zwift compatibility is excellent too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kickr Core as a followup to Kickr 2018 I bought a Wahoo Kickr a couple years ago and bought the Kickr Core for my son who is just getting into triathlon training...enjoying the same reliable workouts and connect ability to iPads as well as seamless connection to Sufferfest videos...Keep it up Wahoo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great smart trainer! I’m happy with the KICKR Core smart trainer. At first there was an issue about ERG mode when using wahoo App (no issue with zwift or trainer road) but after sending feedback to customer service they can fix it, so it’s all good now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, set up and ride Who knew pedalling indoors could be so easy and so good… easy to set up straight out of the box, I was rehabbing within minutes. This piece of equipment has been used everyday to help post ACL surgery and will be one of the best things to come out of this Corona time… The trainer works great when you pair with either the app or my wahoo computer with more programming options than I was aware of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good to go! Easy to set up, works out of the well packed box as promised. My cassette fit as did my frame, I have experience maintaining my bike and was relieved that the set up was easy, no confusing lengthy instructions. Hooked up to Zwift and Sufferfest no problem, have been enjoying riding daily since receiving.
