2018 Edition KICKR Smart Trainer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 89.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked for 2 days then constant clicking/grinding Be very careful... it worked like a dream for 2 days then I got the dreaded clicking sound that sounds like a 2 stroke engine. Can't use it any more in the mornings now as it wakes wife and kids. Contacting support sent me a link to how to take it apart and fix it if I got my own tools and waited for the parts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The closest you can get to real cycling! I bought it 3 weeks ago and we already have spent 1100km on it on two bikes. Easy setup. Easy bike change. Low noise level. It will keep us warm through the cold month of the year. 5/5 stars

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super quiet... legs leave a bit to be desired Just received my new 2018 Wahoo kicker, replacing my original generation kicker so that I can one day take advantage of the Kicker Climb. New trainer is super quiet, it makes you acutely aware of how noisy your drivetrain is. Very nice, wife approves! That being said.. the legs leave a bit to be desired. When legs are extended fully, and the locking pin is popped up they still have play to them. I can probably push/pull them forward or backward at least a half centimeter. Legs and feet are adjusted properly. Trainer seems stable after one ride, will have to ride more to see if that is true, just not what i would have expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trainer and simple to set up! I bought the trainer 3 weeks ago and really love it. I appreciated the fact that it came with a cassette, adjusts to my bike size and works right away with my 12mm through axle. Syncs smoothly with Zwift and the ride is very realistic. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accuracy I've put about 500 miles on Kickr now. The performance is very close to the actual road feel. Change in speed is quickly transferred into watts on popular virtual software apps.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Noise issues I've Used the 2018 edition Kickr and its making a odd changing noise. I've email customer support a video of the noise and waiting to here back

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product I have used other trainers in the past and this is the best to date. Seamless integration on Apple TV with Zwift & Ful Gaz. Also works well with the Tickr Fit heart rate monitor. Unit has good road feel and spin down along with being very stable. My only minor complaint is that nothing can replace real world riding, but a valiant effort by the 2018 Kickr.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Prone to failure I purchased the first 2018 kickr a few months ago. Easy to setup and connect with zwift. ERG mode in zwift worked flawlessly. However, it was extremely loud and clicked with each revolution of the flywheel. I took a 5 second video and sent it to Wahoo support. I was immediately contacted and informed that it was a warranty issue. My options were to buy another brand new kickr or get a refurbished one. I was told the refurbished one was a better option because the bugs have been worked out on it. The problem is Wahoo was going to charge me the brand new price for a refurbished kickr. No thanks. I bought a second brand new kickr. This one had connectivity issues from the get go. Failed ERG mode, would drop connection constantly and spontaneously every ride. Went through Zwift support and Wahoo support, nothing worked. This kickr was also sent back. I must say that Wahoo customer support was fantastic, they covered the return shipping for both devices. I've since gone with the Cyclops Hammer H2 bundle offered by Zwift. Not a single issue, works great every time and is super quiet.
