Now in its 5th generation, Wahoo has unveiled the latest edition of its KICKR smart trainer, touting improved accuracy that no longer requires calibration.
According to Wahoo, the updated KICKR now has a power accuracy of +/-1% thanks to a new proprietary auto-calibration process, along with the company’s AXIS feet, which provide up to five degrees of side-to-side tilt for a more realistic riding experience that continues to operate with near silence.
“With key updates that improve any indoor ride, our newest KICKR will deliver an elevated experience for all Wahooligans,” said Product Manager Tyler Harris. “Without any need to calibrate, and improved accuracy, riders can be more confident than ever in power numbers, and with the new AXIS Feet providing subtle side-to-side motion, ride feel has never been more realistic.”
Addiotnally, KICKR is compatible with the KICKR CLIMB Indoor Grade Simulator, KICKR HEADWIND Smart Fan and the KICKR DESK, as well as compatibility with the virtual training platform The Sufferfest. Moreover, the 7.25kg flywheel is also height adjustable to work with 24in, 26in, 27.5in/650b, 650c and 29in/700c wheel sizes, while its Bluetooth and ANT+ FE-C protocols communicate with most iOS, Android and Windows devices.
Despite its new features, customers will be pleased to see that the price for the updated KICKR has remained the same at $1,199, which includes a Shimano/SRAM 11-speed freehub with an 11-28 cassette.
