1New KICKR Power Trainer is rated out of 5 by 179.Rated 5 out of 5 by El Conquestidor from Super Indoor trainer I haven't been this sore from an indoor ride for a long time. :) It really pushes me and it is really entertaining to workout against others from all over the world.Date published: 2016-12-07Rated 4 out of 5 by Erika from Awesome ' I bought this less then a month ago. It has brought winter training to another level. It's the perfect trainer for the winter months.Date published: 2016-12-03Rated 5 out of 5 by Fitterron from Yahoo kicker and cts training I bought this and got it in and could not use it no one told me I needed a USB dongle never heard of it for the money you give for this it should come with it ready to ride so I finally found one 75 miles away went and got it so I can get on zwift virtual rides and training it didn't take long to learn how to use it then and I love it and for cts training they are awesome they have helped me train harder and I feel like I am getting stronger each dayDate published: 2016-11-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Intense Boy from Greate Product This is the second I bought, I bough the original one two years ago and I sold it to buy the new one.Date published: 2016-11-22Rated 5 out of 5 by JoeBK from Outstand I've had my new KICKR for only a week and I now know why everyone I know that has one - loves it. Should have bought one years ago! Great training.Date published: 2016-11-21Rated 5 out of 5 by techeros from NEW Kicker Review Sold the old, got the NEW Kickr. I live in an apartment looking for a more quiet experience. My neighbors below me never complain even when asking them. They do not hear it. (New and old unit) The NEW and the previous model is ROCK SOLID. I have put thousands of miles on the old and it was used for 3 IM training seasons before selling. 0 issues. The new handle is good. I like the BT and ANT+ indicator lights. My unit came with a new cadence sensor too. Thanks for that! I do hear some differences in the noise, IE, it does appear to be more quiet, however, not by much in my opinion. The way power is registered is completely different in the NEW trainer. That is what I hear, that is the difference. Suggestions for new and old units. If you are complaining about the noise, run the unit in ERG mode and use an easier front chain ring. I believe you will accomplish the same result. Do correct me if I'm wrong. With the old and new unit, the noise levels will be lower. Either way, rock solid product, and support. The Customers are not the testers. It's good out of the box.Date published: 2016-11-18Rated 5 out of 5 by Tikki from A must have. The kickr is the greatest invention since the power meter. I have been using my kickr for about a month. I can already see how this is going to change my training. The ERG mode is the absolute best way to train when I need to hold a particular range of watts. I don't even know what to say. I love everything about it. This is the most fun I've ever had on an indoor trainer. As for noise, my husband commented that it is surprisingly quiet.Date published: 2016-11-14Rated 5 out of 5 by Daru from Love this trainer! I recently moved onto Zwift as my indoor training environment. I was using a Computrainer and related software. The upgrade had been fantastic. The KICKR works seemlessly with Zwift, is mechanically smooth and quiet, and easy. I just hop on and start my session. 5 starsDate published: 2016-11-07
