2018 Edition KICKR Smart Trainer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 114.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke Quickly My Kickr started making a loud clicking noise shortly after I started riding with it. Customer Service sent me an illegible copy of complex repair instructions that were run off on a copier with insufficient toner to reproduce the photos clearly. I'm now going to return the unit and hope for a quick replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Great Trainer I am very pleased with my Kickr 2018. Had an earlier iteration of Kickr and was fairly well satisfied. The 2018 is so much better, though. It is smoother, quieter, more responsive, and is solid throughout my rides. If your're committed to indoor training and realize the time devoted to it, it is well worth it to upgrade to the 2018 model. I use the Kickr with Apple TV and Zwift and the two play really well together.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Belt malfunction after 30 days I upgraded to this trainer after 5 years on a Kurt Kinetic. It was great for the first 30 days, particularly after syncing to TrainingPeaks and Zwift for seamless tracking and communication with my coach. Unfortunately, after a month, it started creating a loud clicking/snapping sound, which got progressively worse after 2 more rides. It was then that I found out this is “a known issue” for the 2018 models. I contacted Wahoo to request a replacement under the warranty, and they said I had 2 options: 1) I could be placed in a queue for a replacement model; or 2) they could send me a repair kit via Express Mail and I could fix it myself. This trainer is great when it’s working. However, it’s unsettling that things went awry after only 30 days. I’m undecided on whether I think this is worth the price. Do your research on the 2018 models before investing in this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great equipment for the price I wanted a trainer I could use with apps and keep the rear wheel on for quick disconnect to ride outside. This fits the bill. I like the wahoo fitness app used with my cadence sensor. The only downside is that I ended up having to purchase the ant+ dongle so the apps could pair consistently.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Noisy fault with poor customer service Bought at the end of December, brilliant for a fortnight then developed a common fault. Replacement sent out which is faulty out of the box, loud droning and heavy vibrations. Was promised another unit two weeks ago and still waiting for an update. Poor quality control and equally bad customer service. Save your money and shop elsewhere

Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid build, great performance I bought this to replace an old trainer I've been using for 10 years and am very pleased with my purchase. Trainer was very easy to assemble and begin using with smart apps. Seems built to last, which is a must given the big sticker price. Hope to be using this for another 10 years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek I have only used this half a dozen times. Seems to work as advertised
