      Awesome for the Winter Cyclist

It wasn't that bad when I started since I lived in Houston, TX and could basically be outside year-round. When I moved to Wisconsin almost two years ago that changed. I had to adapt my training to mostly take place inside during the winter months (November - March). I started with a cheap trainer, but quickly upgraded to the Kickr Snap. This trainer provides control over the resistance during the workout via a bluetooth connection to your phone or iPad. This is helpful to train hills or simply to give yourself a better road feel. In addition to that, it also provides a key metric that is very helpful when training, Power. I haven't verified the accuracy of the power reading from the trainer, but it does provide a number which, regardless of accuracy, is pretty helpful to understand your output change during certain activities or intervals. Finally, the app integration for this trainer is incredible. I have found several different apps that work well with it, including the Cyclops app. The Wahoo app is pretty good most of the time, but other apps provide you the opportunity to "race" against other cyclists, or watching a video of the course you are riding. I highly recommend this trainer for anyone that has to train inside often.

      Accurate, simple, solid and with a great road feel.

Swapped over to the wheel on version and have had nothing but great experiences with it. Simple to use (no more mucking around with taking wheels off and all the mess that can entail): snap it on and you're ready to go. I use a Stages power meter and have noticed that the Snap and Stages do not always agree with each other - at times the variance can be 40 watts. However, that's most probably due to the sampling frequency difference between the two units (effectively, the Snap is providing 'smooth' data while the Stages samples every second and therefore delivers a more 'raw' data stream - the two do agree overall at the completion of the ride.). It's quite easy to overcome - I simply don't use the Stages while on the trainer and just allow my Garmin head unit to control the watts via the FE-C protocol. It's often said that wheel off trainers provide greater road feel, however I don't notice that with the Snap - this thing feels like riding on the road. It's portable (as long as you're strong enough to lift the 17+ kilo weight for any distance), but is better suited to being setup and left in situ. Overall I would highly recommend this product to anyone wanting a smart trainer that's relatively inexpensive, connects to just about anything, feels fantastic, is super simple to setup and easy to live with.

      Power accuracy is way off.

      Unlike Nicholas F who also reviewed the Snap I do have a power meter. I'm running a 4iiii crank based power meter and as far as I can tell it's pretty accurate. Unlike Nicholas F who also reviewed the Snap I do have a power meter. I'm running a 4iiii crank based power meter and as far as I can tell it's pretty accurate. It's power reading matches pretty well the virtual power that I get when using Trainerroad and my Cycleops Fluid 2 trainer. So the big problem with the Snap is power accuracy. I'm on my second Snap after returning the first one which was also way off what my power meter was reporting. At 140 watts target power on Wahoo fitness app the actual power is less at around 100 -110 watts. At about 180 watts the power output matches my power meter. 200 watts target power and I'm having to put out 230 - 240 watts. 280 watts target power and I'm having to push really hard at 380 watts or more according to my power meter. 300 watts target power on the Snap and the back wheel essentially locks up as I'm not strong enough even standing up to turn the pedals. I've been backwards and forwards with Wahoo support trying to resolve the power accuracy. I've done the advanced spindown numerous times, inflated the tyre to the recommended 110 PSI, turned the tyre tension knob the correct number of turns, upgraded the firmware on the Snap, warmed the Snap up for 10 minutes before doing a spindown calibration, calibrated my power meter every ride etc etc. Wahoo support pretty much abandoned me saying my power meter was inaccurate. Now, I could accept that if wasn't for the fact that I've come across a number of people in various media with the same power accuracy problem. The replacement Snap is on its way back to Apple for a refund . They have been superb to deal with.
