Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes riding indoors even more fun! I have had the Kickr Climb about 1 month now. As many have asked and shared, "Do you really need this product?" The answer is "no" but it definitely enhances the experience of riding with your online cycling games/programs. While riding, you sometimes can see that there is a change in gradient coming up. It is obviously more noticeable on definitely climbs. But on undulating terrain, the Climb helps me to better judge when there is a change in gradient, so I can adjust gears smoothly and maintain cadence. This is because I can feel in my handlebars that I am changing my position (as the bike moves up or down) as it relates to "flat" versus a grade. The Climb was very easy to finish installing and then pairing to my Kickr. As others have said, just make sure you take the Climb out of "locked" mode, and it will react perfectly to the changes in the landscape as you ride. Pricing might be a tad high, but I try not to focus on that. I am definitely having a blast using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply amazing Ok, so if you live in a flat area or just short hills or bridges like me(Florida) and you love climbing then this is it. Get Wahoo trainer, climb and Zwift and that is all you need. It’s simply amazing. There is nothing else out there except real mountains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome addition! I have had the Kickr Climb for a couple of months and it's a great addition to my indoor training regime. I use it with Zwift and it responds immediately to changes in gradient making the rides more realistic. One thing to note if your using your climb with Zwift, if your trainer difficulty is not set at Max (100%), you will need to divide your wheel base by the difficulty setting (i.e. wheel base is 1011mm and trainer difficulty is 50%, 1011/ .50 = 2,022 )and input that number (2,022) in your Kickr Sensor in the Wahoo Fitness App. Once you've made this adjustment, the Climb responses to gradient changes will be immediate and accurate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and realistic I’ve been using the Climb for 2 weeks with the kickr and zwift. Transitions are smooth and the gradient changes allow for realistic engagement of other muscles and riding positions during training. In the past I’ve had soreness in my knee while riding my trainer which does not occur out on the road. This has not been an issue since training with the climb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpected awesome I bought to break up the hours in zwift as the winter approaches and I move inside. It is responsive, and smooth. Really added another layer to break the boredom. Also helps with positional changes, preventing the numb fingers from one position. Was running without looking at the instructions in a few minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun accessory that really increases immersion. Great accessory for the Zwift experience. The pitch changes on various courses keep you more involved and adds to the already solid response of resistance changes in the game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Because of a hectic life, I’m forced to ride indoors a lot. The combination of my Kickr and Climb, combined with Zwift, make my riding Mich more tolerable.
