2017 Edition KICKR Power Trainer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 115.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features Very easy to set up and connect via bluetooth. Had to change the rear cassette out because I am using a 10 speed, and found the lock nut to be incredibly hard to get off, but other than that - a great experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely rock solid and unbelievable I bought approximately one month ago. It is very well made and stable. You can stand and power up a hill or sprint all you like - no problem. I use with an iPad Pro and Zwift - reliable and fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and quiet Very easy set up, ready to go right out of the box

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade from a Civic to a BMW Switching from my old fluid, wheel-on trainer to the Kickr was like upgrading from a Honda Civic to a BMW. While both technically get the job done, the features and feel of the Kickr, and its ability to sync with various digital training platforms, have made me actually look forward to indoor training. That's not even to mention the increased stability and constant power transfer achieved with the Kickr's wheel-off design. If you are on the fence...just do it. I can guarantee you won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kickr Easy to use and set up. It's not the most quiet thing, but no louder than a wheel-on trainer. The only thing I'd change about it is the cassette-it's noisey and take A LOT of fiddling to index the gears right, at least on my bike. This isn't a big deal, but it can be annoying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, cassete is a piece of junk Great well built product. It looks and feels premium however the SRAM cassete that comes with it is a. Absolute piece of junk. Swap asap

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice start but then problems arrised I had a smoothless start. Initially all worked well. Kickr, apps, synchronising etc, no problem! However, after a few weeks problems started to arrise. Now the Wahoo fitness app does not connect to the Kickr BT so control over power and resistance does not work anymore. Beside that synchronising with Strava also stopped for unclear reasons. I realy hate spending my precious hours on fixing these troubles through emails and websites of helpdesks. I am not an IT specialist, I like spinning however. Regards Piet
