2018 Edition KICKR Smart Trainer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than my Vetta My last trainer was a late 80’s early 90’s vetta wind trainer. It sounded like a jet taking off. I am so impressed with wahoo. Everything I could have imagined and more. We all get old, good to see we can take advantage of tech advancements. Ride on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wahoo KICKR Journey Received this in July to find that the oxygen absorbing beads broke out of the pouch and got lodged everywhere. I picked all of them out except the ones that are caught in the flywheel (which I cannot remove), so when I pedal I can hear several of them rolling around in there. They do not seem interfere with the trainer or its functions. Other than that it has been great. I can connect to everything with ease. I have used a 10-speed cassette and the provided 11-speed cassette (very easy to swap if you have the tools). The adapter for the 135mm works great for disc brake bikes. The cadence sensor provided connects perfectly. Side notes: - I had to slightly tune the Shimano 105 11-speed cassette provided from my current 11-speed. - I see no need for a front wheel mount. - The bike feels very stable to mount and ride (should fit like a wheel and not crooked). If not, make sure you have the correct adapter on. - The box and trainer is heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Turbo out there I love the turbo trainer. I've had a number of different ones over the years, from rear wheel mounted to watt bikes , but nothing gives you control and ease of operation like the Wahoo Kickr. Everything just works...and right away! No messing around, no having to reconfigure anything, even on a mac - just plug and go. Works on all the best training systems - no issues. ERG mode is quick and spot on, no 11 second delays like the watt bike, makes hitting your set easy, you just have to worry about hitting those power metrics! Great design, from hardware to software - the focus clearly has been on your riding enjoyment. Top product! totally recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Misleading shipping info The website said it would shipped Mid-July so I ordered thinking I would get it for winter. After not receiving I followed up with Support who said it’s shipping next week. After following up on that I was told there was a mistake and they won’t be shipping until August. It’s not August and I haven’t got my trainer. I’m sure it’s going to be great when I get it but the Australian winter is almost over. Pretty disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great update. Noticabely quiet. Just one gripe Upgrade to this version from the v2 as I have a newborn and keen to keep the volume down. This version is a great update. Very quiet, obviously not silent but you mainly hear your bike over the flywheel so it’s as quiet as it can be. Can’t really notice the larger flywheel but otherwise it’s a great improvement. My only issue is with the skewer which seems to have a plastic cap on the end which is really difficult to hold when tightening and does not let the skewer screw into it easily. Seems a much cheaper compromise versus all the other improvements.
