Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wahoo kickr core Wow what a fantastic trainer.....out of the box easy to set up and configure. And the ride is another league.....so realistic and responsive.....I am loving indoor training and reaping the benefits. Customer service also excellent.....responsive and clear, my order arrived timely......although delayed slightly by Covid-19 restrictions, but I was advised and informed at all times. Thoroughly recommend this Wahoo product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I trust Wahoo and its products Yes now! With my Kickr Core I consider myself a true Spanish Wahooligan! I am very happy with the operation of all the Wahoo items I have (Elemnt Bolt, cadence and speed sensors, Tickr fit to measure my heart rate and mat). The workouts with my smart KICKR along with a ZWIFT subscription are great. There was an incident with the shipping company, but WAHOO's support service resolved it efficiently. Mary was very professional and I felt cared for at all times! Now I am waiting to buy CLIMB for a complete experience because I trust this brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wahoo Kickr Core - Great turbo trainer Great direct drive trainer, not the cheapest but it works. Power and cadence readings are accurate. Synced with Zwift and RGT without any problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product So far so good, much quieter than old trainer. Definitely worth the money, have really enjoyed having erg mode has made workouts much more effective. Very easy to set up out the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely happy Delivery was very quick, especially during current COVID times. The Core was easy to put together and everything you need (including cassette spacer) was included. It feels stable even when pushing to my max and cannot hear it at all over fans and bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended! Excellent piece of kit. Quick and easy setup, worked perfectly first time. Glad I went with the Core for the cadence sensor and quieter performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff :) This is great! Over Last month I spent more than 40h on Kick core and it is amazing. Only couple times erg was not perfect after stopping pedaling but might be caused by Zwift as well - so overall 5 stars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new cycling mate Great tool to enhance my overall physical cycling condition! Especially for winter times I am looking forward to exploit the Kickr Core! Need to work out if I am going to use it with Zwift, RGT or Rouvy. though...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wahoo kickr core So far it's great! It's quiet, easy to hook up to swift, and super hard on the legs :-D
Date published: 2020-06-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing step forward in my home based training I've trained on a non smart trainer before and was blown away by the difference - such an immersive experience when paired with zwift. The kickr core is amazing and easy to set up - that said I had a few issues with bluetooth connection, caused by my phone rather than the core! When riding the core is a dream - super quiet so I'll be able to train before or after the kids are asleep! In my experience so far the resistance changes are quick and smooth. All in all, I am extremely happy with my purchase and can't wait to put in the miles on it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome trainer, recommended! Excellent trainer, works seamlessly with Zwift on an Apple TV, pairing is smooth, ride is smooth, total win, really pleased!
Date published: 2020-06-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saving the day The wahoo kickr works straight out of the box and is reliable enough to see you through lockdown. It's rudimentary design and construction does leave you feeling the price is a bit high. The connector to power it seems to be vulnerable to knocks and breakage. During sprinting or climbing the rear left foot lifts and additional weights are needed for peace of mind. It works well with zwift although that particular package seems to need refinement in race scenarios. It's done it's job but only time will tell how much use it gets in the future when outdoor riding is back to normal. It will probably be a good supplement to outdoor riding. Thanks wahoo for a pretty good bit of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Turbo All good so far. Takes a little while to get used to but worth it so far anyways!
Date published: 2020-06-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Smart Trainer I upgraded from a Kickr Snap (which was also a good device) for several reasons and am fully happy with the decision. The Core has further improved my indoor riding experience in many ways (accuracy, silence, comfort).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wahoo Kickr Core Very easy to set up and works well, still early to give a full review but I like the simple construction, The only thing is calibration could be easier to find, however now I know I am sure it will be ok, just remember to do it every two weeks, very pleased with my purchase, good notification on delivery and well packed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great upgrade wow! what a difference from my previous wheel on trainer! quiet, robust and excellent elevation simulation
Date published: 2020-06-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quiet, works great! I've been running my Kickr Core with the Zwift app on my AppleTV. I'm running the new Tickr X for heart rate, the Kickr Core handles speed, cadence, and power sensors. It's incredibly responsive and accurate but most importantly it's VERY quiet. During the current work from home pandemic, I've been running work calls from home while riding and after asking on the first few calls if there was any background noise, the response was always no. I run the calls through my AirPods, it's works great and my customers and my coworkers have no idea. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kickr Core This thing is awesome, very easy to setup and use. Initial setup was a breeze and haven't had an issue since. Silent operation makes it great for use early morning or late at night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Trainer! First smart trainer I've owned and it's nothing like old school trainers. Easy to set up and use and it does actually feel very much like riding on the road. Well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and powerful! Awesome trainer for a relative amateur. Quiet operation and plenty of resistance when using training programs. Definitely a solid workout when you cant get out on the road!
