1KICKR Power Trainer is rated out of 5 by 157.Rated 5 out of 5 by gfriss from Love my Kickr Was very easy to set up. Built very solid. Feels very stable even when pedaling. Gives a great road feel. Wish I had bought the Kickr sooner. The cadence sensor was a bonus. Use it with my other bike also.Date published: 2016-08-23Rated 5 out of 5 by Woking Rob from Perfect recon unit Recon but not sure why as in as new perfect condition. Loads of great features, easy to connect to Garmins/ iPhone and MacBook. Everything just works perfectly.Date published: 2016-08-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Marius from Great product This is one of the best products I have bought for anything ever. The ability to cycle when I want to where I want irrespecitve of the weather of how safe it is cycle outside makes this product fantastic. I use it with a power and heart rate based training program. It is great for doing FTP's and then the post-FTP training. This product took me from a mediocer cyclist to a top 20 finisher in 6 months. It is a bit on the heavy side which makes a bit challenging if you plan on putting it away after every use but makes great for stability. However it folds up so small that with the handle you can put it away easily in a small space if you so wish. I would recommend getting the mat or putting it on a carpet because it does tend to slide a bit if you cycle really hard. It is incredly realistic and would not give it up for the best bicycle out there. Some issues are that it is challenging to travel with because it doesnt come with a traveling case so if that is a must for you perhaps this one is not for you. Also the case for you phone works great but there isnt one for the iPhone 6 as of yet. A simple solution to that is to get the bicycle computer however (ELEMENT) which is also amazing. Overall this product will become your best training friend and I would recommend you consider adding this to you training equipment.Date published: 2016-08-01Rated 5 out of 5 by Frostie from Wonderful Product Purchased in December 2014 for rehabilitation after surgery. It was great to get me up to fitness again and I continue to use when I can't get out for full ride or just don't have the time. Very occasionally there have been some software niggles but these are often be sorted quickly, or apply to one app only. Overall the quality is wonderful. Still works as it did on day one after thousands of miles of use. I changed the cassette as the stock one was a little noisier than an ultegra one I had spare. Overall exceptionally happy!Date published: 2016-07-25Rated 5 out of 5 by rwebb1998 from Great product and ecosystem! I had a Computrainer and got tired of technical issues, bad software, and limited ecosystem. So far I'm very happy with my KICKR! I've been using a training system from TrainerRoad and feel good about training with power. It's also a very easy app on your phone so you can spend your time training versus troubleshooting.Date published: 2016-06-26Rated 5 out of 5 by dbjohnso86 from Very realistic!! This thing paired with an app (several different ones) simulates hills, drafting and even scenery like no other. I live at 700' above sea level and have virtually no hills/climbs larger than a few hundred feet and even those are very short duration climbs so to be able to simulate long steep climbs is amazing!Date published: 2016-06-17Rated 5 out of 5 by TRIMPtraining from TRIMP experience Wahoo Fitness Thanks for asking about my opinions and experiences since I bought the product twenty days ago. I want to tell you that each workout with the athletes has been really good. They seem to be happy with this new and excelent strategy of training and also I am very glad as a coach with the results and opportunities that it has allowed to us. The kickr has brought me a lot of opportunities to do a workout closer to reality. In my company I have been used it to do stress test and the results has been extraordinary. I just want to suggest to improve the application of an option of doing intervals and let them scheduled. I can recommend this product to other shoppers that may be interested in sports process that play an important role as a complement of the training and allow atheletes knowing more about their development. Thanks again. Sincerely, TRIMPDate published: 2016-06-13Rated 3 out of 5 by AussieinUS from Bike didn't fit on kickr Unfortunately, I couldn't adjust my rear derailleur so that I could use the trainer. Spent about an hour trying to get it right. It sounded like I was grinding my gears the while time. Would get one gear right, but then another gear would grind. Didn't want to have to do that every time I put my bike on the trainer. So I returned the trainer. Was looking forward to using it too. Before buying one, if you can take your bike somewhere to try it on the Kickr. Have to say that customer service was great with the return though.Date published: 2016-06-09
