Description

The Wahoo Kickr 2018 Power Trainer has undergone a number of new updates, compared to its 2017 variant. For example, the KICKR makes less noise than its predecessors. Its maximum wattage has gone from 2000 watts to 2200 watts, resulting in a percentage increase of up to 20%. The Wahoo KICKR of course still has all the fantastic features of its predecessors. Because if it's good enough for the "marginal gains" of Team Sky, you can expect high quality. For them, it is important that the equipment delivers reliable data and rides as natural as possible.

Suitable for almost every bike

The KICKR Core is suitable for bikes with a standard 130 and 135mm quick release mounting width. Ideal for both road and mountain bikes. They consider the compatibility for through axles. Both 12 x 142, as well as 'Boost' 12 x 148. More space has been created for bicycles with disc brakes. Any bike with a wheel size from 24 to 29 inches can easily be replaced into the KICKR Core bike trainer.

High wattage and great gradients

The wattage measurement is even more accurate than with the Wahoo KICKR Snap and can generate up to 2200 watts maximum. Gradient percentages can be simulated up to 20%. The algorithms have been adapted so that you will experience a super realistic cycling feeling during climbing and sprinting. The change of resistance flows exceptionally smoothly into each other without feeling shaky. Especially in acceleration, deceleration, uphill and downhill riding on Zwift, for example, this is very important and much more realistic than ever before.

Suitable for Wahoo KICKR Climb

The Wahoo KICKR Core also supports the Wahoo KICKR Climb, of course. When the KICKR Climb is connected, it reacts directly to the data of the virtual track. From your front fork, your bike will move up and down. This way you are in the same position as if you were climbing or descending. This will make your climbing muscles more realistic and will improve your climbing technique Note: The Wahoo KICKR Climb is not included in the package.

Detailed product description

Connection with (bicycle) computer, tablet or phone

The open source software makes this trainer ready for the future. Especially given all the programme developers who are developing. The Wahoo KICKR Core is now compatible with more than 25 training programs. This provides you, as a user, the choice to see what you need. Partners are among others: Zwift, TrainerRoad, Wahoo Fitness, Kinomap, Virtual Training, Skuga, Cadence VR, Veloreality and much more. The large choice of programs in combination with the ANT+ FE-C, ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart 4.0 connection ensures that you can work with various devices. Now you can do it with your windows computer, Mac, iPhone, iPad, tablet or Android Phone. There is a program for everyone to carry out your training.

The LED lights tell you all about the connection

The LED lights makes it easy to see when you are connected through Bluetooth, ANT+ FE-C or ANT+. Also, they also show whether the trainer is connected to the power supply.

Wahoo ELEMNT (Bolt) cycling computer

If you have a Wahoo ELEMNT or a Wahoo ELEMNT Bolt, you can control the Wahoo KICKR Core. This even happens via 5 different programs. It is also possible to ride a driven route again through GPX via the device. The trainer automatically adjusts the resistance based on GPS coordinates.

Can also be used as a stand-alone trainer

When you don't pair the bike trainer with a phone, tablet, computer or bike computer, the Wahoo KICKR Core can also be used as a stand-alone trainer. You can connect the KICKR Core to the power supply and cycle and shift like you always do. It has a built-in progressive power curve that simulates air resistance and automatically adjusts as you cycle faster for a real bike feel.

2.Resistance mode: Manually adjust the resistance from 0 to 100%.
3.Ergo mode: Specify the desired power and the trainer will automatically adjust to keep you on the specified wattage, regardless of your speed.
4.Simulation mode: uses rolling resistance, air resistance, the cyclist's weight and different gradients to simulate a real ride.
