New KICKR Power Trainer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 99.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from KICKR has exceeded my expectations I started with wahoo products several years ago with a RFLKT which led me to bluetooth cadence and speed sensors I reviewed elsewhere, and on to my ELEMNT which I loved. Once I had used the ELEMNT and seen the level of quality and performance, it was a forgone conclusion that I would go with the KICKR as opposed to any of the other options. So nuts and bolts - it hooked up immediately, works excellently in every app I've tested and honestly, the only thing I can complain about is that it's loud. They all are. It's quieter than my previous Fluid 2, but I still have to turn the TV up when I'm spun up. Its not too loud to have a casual conversation over, its just louder than I'd like if I had the ability to affect it. Power readings are pretty close to spot on at least as compared to my stages crank based meter. The "road" feel is better than anything else I've used, including a couple of the other "smart trainers". I rated features and value at 4 stars each because I think if it integrated some motion features to give a slightly better riding experience, and make it worth the MSRP. Other wise I would readily recommend it to anyone looking for a smart trainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trainer This trainer is really living up to expectations and I have only used it 4 times. I am going to have a blast using it all winter long

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use Just mount the bike on the trainer and you can ride as usual. However, you have to buy a front wheel support separately. I am very disappointed that the front wheel support is not included in the package.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Switch from wheel on. I was having issues with tire slip and decided to change to the Kickr. I have noticed that it is in a more realistic gear as opposed to my previous trainer. Which is probably what is meant by a realistic feel. I did have problems with the kickr dropping but switched to a different USB port and have had no issues. It is very responsive when the grade changes. I don't have to work to set it up and don't give much thought to it when pedaling away which is how it should be. I think my chain makes more noise than the trainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Indoor Trainer. Couldn’t be happier! I began cycling less than a year ago. I recently purchased the Wahoo Kickr to help makes the long winters a little more bearable. The Kicker is the first trainer I’ve ever owner and I was able to set it up without difficulty. Very happy with this product and Wahoo Fitness customer service!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from clunking on 148 x 12 boost thru brand new mtb with 148 x 12, and never shifted smoothly. Tried to replace cog with brand new XT, hauled everything in to my local bike store, still skipped. Could have rigged with home made spacers, but bike manufacturer said no, after a phone call. . Really disappointed..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great I am about a month in and very happy. The Kickr works as advertised and combined with Trainerroad or Zwift, makes riding indoors very tolerable.
Date published: 2017-12-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but missing a part Was missing the 10 speed cassette spacer. LBS didn't have one. So it took another week to get it from an on-line store. If you have a 10 speed, buy the spacer before you order.
