Wahoo Fitness announced the launch of its new Snap power trainer today – offering users ANT+ and Bluetooth connectivity, along with a range of new apps.
Unlike the brand’s other models, the Snap is a conventional floor trainer, wherein the rear wheel interfaces directly with the roller – yielding an experience closer to real world cycling.
The new Snap features ANT+ and Bluetooth protocols, so users can control its features from a smartphone or tablet app, which now allows for the adjustment of resistance levels. In addition, extra sensors now provide cadence and heart rate monitoring, along with compatibility with a host of third-party apps, like TrainerRoad and Zwift.
Perhaps, what’s most appealing about the new Snap, is its price, which sell for 30% less than the original Kickr.
“When we introduced our first KICKR trainer in 2012, we redefined the trainer category by offering the first iPhone powered cycling trainer,” said Chip Hawkins, CEO of Wahoo Fitness. “The KICKR SNAP is a descendent of our gold standard KICKR, and provides similar features but is easier to use, so users of all abilities can stay fit year round.”
According to Kickr, the Snap will be available starting in August.
