2017 Edition KICKR SNAP Bike Trainer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 217.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I hate this evil thing. I've been using the KICKR SNAP trainer for the last two weeks and it has caused me nothing but blood, sweat and tears. Well no blood, but lots of sweat and tears. Made a mistake and didn't put a towel under my bike the first time I used it. (Never knew I could sweat so much). I no longer have an excuse not to train (therefore the tears). The trainer is quieter then the sound of me gasping for air. It is not a perfect simulation of outdoor riding but it really helps when I can't get out and get on the road.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for the price. I bought this product ~ 5 months ago for indoor cycling. Have ridden almost 3 500 km since then and would like to share my experience. Cons: 1. It does (as some of the other reviewers mentioned) vibrate badly when I'm spinning fast on low gears. 2. Inevitable dropouts when connect to Zwift via ANT+ protocol (solved by switching to ANT/FE-C). 3. Adjustablity/range of the locking mechanism could be a bit better. The rear axle on my bike is very narrow so I have to unscrew the left bolt almost completely to fix the bike securely. 4. Poor Android app (I could not find advanced calibration in the official app had to use my girlfriends iPhone). Pros: 1. Very good ride feel due to heavy flywheel 2. Easy to assemble and use. 3. Very solid. 4. Silent. Even more silent than some of the direct drive trainers. 5. Good bang for the buck. Overall I'm satisfied with the device. Opted for it because it offers better quality and ride feel at the same price as some of the competitors. If you want the best wheel on trainer experience for the moderate price then go for it. P.S. Strongly recommend to do advanced calibration to get accurate power readings.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good with concerns I bought the snap a little over a month ago and am happy with some slight concerns. I want to start by saying the unit is stable and does what you expect it to do. I have it paired with Zwift and I love the combination. Sundown using the Wahoo Bluetooth app are hit or miss. No big deal because do these at the nd of a ride when the tire is warm and I am warm. I might have to do a couple to get it to complete. Not a huge issue. Overall really like the unit. Me issue.... I took it out of the box and went to set it up and the power would go in and out based on the cable position. So you get a cable that plugs into a pigtail on the back of the unit which gives the unit power. My little pigtail that goes to the flywheel has some issues. I think it still has them but I just manipulated the cable a bit (twisted it) So the power stays on. This little pigtail is connected to this black shield that houses the circuit board. I live in an apartment and I knew if I called them they would want the whole thing back and I just don't have time to ship the whole unit back. It would be nice if I could just get the black shield that houses the circuit board because that is where the problem is located. You should expect more when you drop 600.00 for something. Kind of disappointed. I would have given five stars if not for this issue. Maybe they will read this and offer to just send me the circuit board piece that contains the pigtail. We shall see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievably well built I am three weeks into this purchase and 10 years since I rode competitively (read: fat and WAY out of shape) .. I love this trainer. Paired with Zwift, it is an amazing piece of kit that is rapidly getting me back into fighting shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value My first trainer and so far very happy with it. Wanted something that's gonna last, something durable and so far seems like I chose right. It's very easy to assemble and use. Was a bit afraid how I am gonna gauge the right pressure on the tyre, but it's quite easy to get right and have no issues with it. The noise is okay. The only thing I am not so sure about is how it calculates power as it jumps a lot and it's hard to stay within some levels. Still very satisfied though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart Trainer Revolution I have no other experience with smart trainers. I've used traditional trainers that I quickly abandoned because of boredom. I was reluctant to purchase a smart trainer because of the price, but grew desperate because of snowy/icy Ohio winters. So after considerable research I pulled the trigger and purchased a SNAP. Despite some software hiccups with Zwift, I look forward to logging miles on my Snap trainer. The resistance increases smoothly. Wahoo did a good job constructing the frame, it's sturdy and remains stable during hard efforts. The area which makes contact with your wheel doesn't chew up your tire. Also, it's very quiet compared to other trainers I've used. Overall, Wahoo has created a great product. However, I've experienced connectivity issues with Zwift. On three occasions, it lost connection with Zwift mid ride.
