1New KICKR Power Trainer is rated out of 5 by 208.Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Good machine mediocre software I purchased 2 of these. One for a high profile athlete of mine and one for myself. We both like the unit but we both get very frustrated when the app loses connection with the unit and you just start ghost spinning. This happens frequently during the ride and is extremely frustrating.Date published: 2017-01-14Rated 4 out of 5 by GPla from As close to a road feel as you'll get. Very happy with my trainer. Replicates the road feel pretty well. Only one thing I wasn't entirely happy with, the cassette that comes with the trainer is so so at best. Other than that I am happy I chose the Kickr vs. all the other options on the market.Date published: 2017-01-13Rated 5 out of 5 by Chill from So far I am thrilled Very pleased, solid, smooth, no issues at all connecting to several different apps. I enjoy trainering in the off season so I use them a lot, this will be my last trainer if it lasts like it looks like it will. Can be louder than I expected At high flywheel rpm, but this can be adjusted with gears and load. Plus the sound helps me work on smoothing stroke.Date published: 2017-01-10Rated 5 out of 5 by trnpsycho from Awesome Device I actually didn't get the CTS Coaching, but I'm not able to find the Kickr by itself in the reviewed items. That said, this device rocks! Most of my workouts have been with a popular "video game" like atmosphere, but it's really highlighted the abilities of this machine. I've never spent so much time paying attention to the details of the data prior to owning the Kickr.Date published: 2017-01-09Rated 4 out of 5 by ryanrish from Appreciate the adjustable wheel size We are very pleased with our new Kickr. My two sons (ages 8 and 10) now use the Kickr once in a while, and it's nice to be able to adjust to their wheel sizes (24" and 26") without propping up the front wheel. Pretty good road feel (LeMond was better, but too noisy in the house and not a smart trainer). Synchs up nicely with all of our devices.Date published: 2017-01-08Rated 5 out of 5 by Matt6 from KICKR Power Trainer Very, very happy with my KICKR Power Trainer right out of the box! Very impressed with the quality of the trainer. This is a great piece of equipment. Set up was very simple. KICKR has become an indispensable component of my bike training!Date published: 2017-01-03Rated 4 out of 5 by Steve15 from Good piece of kit Originally bought the Snap but it was so loud and vibrated so much it was unusable in my apartment so after trying to dampen the noise with various pads and mats I finally returned it and paid the extra and bought the Kickr. This is a solid unit, easy to set up and intuitive to use, a bit of a high pitched whine from the open belt drive when using but quiet enough to work in my apartment. So far no quality or usage issues to report.Date published: 2017-01-03Rated 5 out of 5 by Obren from Fantastic Trainer I did not think I would be into stationary training, but purchased this anyway on recommendation from a friend. Now I recommend to you. Its really great. Makes me want to use it and improve.Date published: 2016-12-29
