New KICKR Power Trainer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! This has exceeded my expectations. So far so good. My only feedback would be to give the option at purchase for a 10 speed cassette. The 11 speed out of the box I replaced and will never be used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elevates your indoor training experiance. I bought the Kickr Power Trainer a month ago to improve my indoor riding and racing experience on Zwift. The product has meet all my expectations and more in the quality of the product and the mazing road feel on gets riding this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It will keep you riding in the winter Every spring I swear I'm not going to let this happen again. I always intend on either riding in the cold or hitting the spin cycle a couple times a week to help maintain my fitness. Ever winter I fail and come spring, I have to rebuild. Each year it gets harder and harder to rebound. Since the Kickr (and Zwift) I've been on the bike every day. Structured training plans, the ability to ride with friends or even groups of people you don't know. I look forward to going down to the "pain cave" ALMOST as much as I look forward to an actual ride. ERG mode is awesome for training, as you pick a gear and the trainer does the rest for you. All you need to worry about is cadence and watts. The Kickr is spot on power when compared to my Quarq. Yes it's expensive, but I've had spin bikes, trainers, gym memberships... that were never used (non of them were "cheap" by the way.) This unit will get you up and riding throughout the winter. Even if it's just an hour a day workout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's as real as it gets I've used a classic trainer in the past. A friend of mine recommended this and told me, the realism is going to surprise me. He was right. I use this with zwift and it's as real as it gets. Climbing the hills, you're going to feel it. It responds fast. Easy to set up. Well worth it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best... except... I bought my first Kickr in Jan., 2016. I sold that to a buddy so I could buy the 2017 model. The 2017 model is GREAT. My only complaint is with the 11speed cassette that comes stock. It's not worth the cheap metal it is stamped from. Otherwise, I'm completely happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I love my new Wahoo Kickr. I'm really enjoying Zwift and looking forward to experimenting with other apps. It's easy to set up and pair with your iOS devices. Small drawback: competitor has reality-based videos that are not compatible with Wahoo/iOS. Would really like to have that feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best way to beat the chill! High quality, very easy setup, and solid feel. Used it for over a month with Zwift, and it is amazing how quickly it responds to gradient changes. Noise is not an issue, just turn up the music a bit and you really don't notice it any more than you would ambient road noise. Two things, it does not come with an Ant+ Dongle, which is a must have for any Zwift set up with Laptop. You may have to re-index your real derailleur slightly...that said I am not 100% sure if the Kickr is solid and my bike is not, or vice versa. It comes with spacers, and so it's an issue I can fix, but just something to be aware of. The unit does come with a Cadence sensor, which is great, and the handle makes it very easy to move. It's just as expensive as solid road bike, and so far, excites me just as much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy on the kickr I have had the kickr for about 3 weeks. Already spent plenty of time riding the virtual streets of watopia and london. Having this smart trainer has really made my workouts for much more beneficial.
