1KICKR Turbo Trainer is rated out of 5 by 153.Rated 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: 2016-06-09Rated 5 out of 5 by Bdiezel from Simply the best I bought this in order to connect with Zwift and link up with my friends around the world and #rideon. This trainer is so life like I prefer it to riding outside. It is a very sturdy trainer with little to no wobble during springs and climbs. superb build quality and fantastic connectivity made this purchase a no-brainier for me.Date published: 2016-06-03Rated 5 out of 5 by ClaytonICT from I made the right choice! So I am living as a single father now which can present challenges when it comes to getting to ride and train. I am using the Zwift/Strava applications to train paired with this KICKR. At first I was a little squirmy about taking the back wheel off. As it turns out, it's not that hard. I purchased the PAIN CAVE BUNDLE so it came with a mat, desk, trainer, and the Wahoo little cadence sensor. I did have to buy that little ANT+ Dongle and a USB extension cord. I was not disappointed at all plus I save my back tire! PLEASE NOTE... I did have to make some minor adjustments to the rear mechanicals to get quite and smooth shifting. If I understand it correctly You could also use the gears from your tire? Not sure. The folks at Wahoo are super helpful as well with your questions. I had a few after setup but that was mainly about complementary sensors to the KICKR. Since my order I have clocked over 200+ miles on it and don't regret a single one. By the way you will feel the burn when this trainer kicks in one you...Date published: 2016-06-01Rated 5 out of 5 by bkp083 from Fantastic In the past few weeks I have utilised the Kickr to ride late at night when arriving home, on rainy Saturday mornings and other random times. The convenience of a realistic riding simulator has led to additional kms I could not have achieved on the road. As a result I have been able to achieve two new personal bests when I did get the bike out. I'm very happy with my purchase.Date published: 2016-05-27Rated 5 out of 5 by zulu from Second Kickr This is my second Kickr so I'm obviously A big fan. However, I was disappointed that Wahoo does not offer any adapters for a 12x135 thru axle. They do share this on their website but I did not look closely enough before purchasing and assumed it would work for my wife's specialized crux (this is a kickr for her). I'm torn now wether to return it and get a different trainer or wait hoping Wahoo makes an adapter...Date published: 2016-05-20
