    Simply Brilliant

    • Written by from Lee-on-the-Solent

    This trainer has transformed my indoor training regime. Combined with the KinoMap application on an iPad 3rd Gen, Blue SC and Blue HR i have a fully integrated training system that provides all the stats needed to monitor and improve. The KICKR provides a great feel and with the simple ability to change the cassette and bike adjustment, it can be used for any type of bike and gearing. The different modes (Ergo, Resistance, Sim and Manual) allows you to focus your training and there are plenty of iPhone and iPad applications that enable fully configured training sessions. Previously I hated my turbo sessions, now I actually look forward to the next session - simply brilliant!

    KICKR - best turbo trainer on the planet? Yes!

    • Written by from Glasgow

    The Wahoo KICKR is a turbo trainer that can be controlled by the free Wahoo Fitness App on your iPhone, iPad, BTLE enabled Mac Book Pro or ANT+ enabled PC.
    You connect your bike to the cassette on the KICKR (no rear wheel required!) start up the app and off you go. The KICKR is incredibly stable, even when out of the saddle on high powered sprinting efforts (it can handle up to 2000W!) and generates a great road-like feel.
    The KICKR includes a highly calibrated power meter and in ERG mode you can control the power output of your trainer precisely. So if you drop your cadence the resistance of the KICKR will increase to keep you at the set power output. I've combined mine with TrainerRoad.com and videos from The Sufferfest and it is absolutely awesome. I can't recommend this system highly enough - especially at Apple's Black Friday pricing.
