Ascend up to 20% and decend down to -10%
KICKR CLIMB quickly raises and lowers your bike to match ascents of up to 20% grade and descents of -10% grade when paired with the new KICKR or new SNAP. Climbs are more realistic than ever when training indoors! *Exact grade changes dependent on bicycle size, wheel size and trainer type.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than Expected I bought the unit to use with Zwift and “expected” a few issues. To my surprise, the unit far exceeded my expectations. What a blast! You have made my trainer “Fun”.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Remotivating the indoor ride I've got about 4000miles on my Kickr in Zwift this year and am having trouble staying motivated. I decided to try the Climb as a toy based upon DC Rainmaker's and GP Llama's reviews. I figured this would help me have some fun, stay motivated on the indoor rides, and help prep the hill climbing for an event in August. So, I ordered one when they first went on sale. FREE Shipping! Oh, you live in Hawaii? $85 shipping. After a week and half, it gets here and the power brick is dead. Kevin T got them to send me one via 2 day shipping. So now if finally works. The shipping and dead brick cost them a star. Ok, so riding the thing. At 200 lbs (90kg), the response and feel is pretty amazing. Putting all those miles in Watopia had had gotten me used to the resistance change in the hills, now the incline changes and gives it a whole new feel. The Esses segment was really trippy with the matching incline and resistance changes. Going up Alp De Zwft is much more realistic (particularly around the hairpins) and I can feel it in my legs and pedal stroke. Getting out of the saddle over the handlebars is much more natural now. Going down had me pulling the brakes a couple of times. It just made the rides much more natural feeling. All in all, it works. The response is not instantaneous, but given the signal has to go from computer to Kickr to Climb to mechanical drive, it is close enough at my speeds to be believable. Do you need it? No. Will I miss it if I don't have it? You bet. Was it worth the money? As much as any bike gear is. All in all, it helped to re-motivate me for the indoor rides. Two things that do bug me: I have to remember to unlock it every time and there isn't a way in Zwift to set up incline workouts. Maybe, I'll just put tape markers on it and manual adjust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big leap for indoor bike training The major selling point is the grade simulator - and that works great. But the feel of the KICKR CLIMB makes riding closer to real road feel. It's stable and allows for real out of the saddle feel even on steep grades and under high power output.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Heights of Indoor Training Realism Just finished my first ride on KICKR Climb. Pretty surreal experience. It's obvious a lot of thought, hard work and passion went into the design. Setup was quick and easy - just remember to switch it to unlocked mode so the grade can be controlled by apps like Zwift. Good build quality, very stable and pretty quiet - couldn't really discern any noise. I felt subtle vibrations when the grade changed but that may have more to do with my handlebars than the Climb. The change in grade is nearly instantaneous - not quite perfect but pretty darn close. The real question on most everyone's mind is likely, "is it worth it?" When given a choice, I'd always choose to ride outdoors. But weather, work schedule and a nasty collarbone break into 8 pieces didn't always give me that choice. KICKR Climb adds a level of realism to indoor training that is unmatched.
