KICKR Bike

If you're looking for the most immersive indoor training experience you can get, the KICKR Bike may be your best bet. With innovative features like real-time gradient adjustment, customizable gearing, and simulated shifting and braking, it's the closest thing to outdoor riding that we've tried to date. I mean, the front of the bike literally raises and lowers in response to terrain. How neat is that? And with 5-points of adjustability, you can match the geometry of your current road bike, or even input your professional fit data using the Wahoo Fitness to find your perfect fit. Next, pair the KICKR bike with interactive apps like Zwift or TrainerRoad to complete your riding experience.

The obvious goal with the Wahoo KICKR Bike is to mimic the feeling of cycling on the open road, and it starts with real-time grade changes that elevate or lower the bike to match ascents of up to 20% and descents down to -15%. The response is automatic when paired with apps like Zwift, but you can also adjust the gradient manually. The shift levers can be customized to match the controls of Shimano, SRAM, and Campagnolo, and you can even program the gearing to match the exact gear ratios, number of speeds, and cassette tooth count you'd normally run from these manufacturers. The flywheel itself matches the power and inertia of outdoor riding for a realistic ride feel, and there's virtual braking too, allowing the brake levers to electronically control the flywheel and motor to allow quick, precise braking that matches the feeling of a real road bike.

Wahoo also took bike fit into account when designing the KICKR Bike, bringing you 5-points of adjustability so you can get a personalized fit. Easily accessible quick-release levers allow you to adjust the stack, reach, saddle setback, saddle height, and frame height. The Wahoo Fitness app is used to setup the bike, and will easily guide you through this process by allowing you to input professional fit data, take a photo to measure your bike, or enter body measurements to customize the fit to the exact geometry of your outdoor bike. The crank arm length is adjustable in five increments from 165 to 175mm, and you can choose to run your own handlebars, saddle, and pedals, if desired.

The drive system uses the renowned KICKR flywheel technology for a responsive and realistic pedaling feel, along with quiet operation that's much less obtrusive than noisy trainers of the past. An integrated power meter measures wattage with +/- 1% accuracy, and you never have to worry about calibrating it to maintain that accuracy. As you might expect, the KICKR Bike also measures speed, distance, and cadence without the need for any additional sensors. A digital LED display indicates your gear selection and grade percentage, so you can get information with just a quick glance during the course of your ride.

The KICKR Bike integrates seamlessly with other Wahoo products such as the ELEMNT GPS bike computer, the TICKR heart rate monitor, and the KICKR Headwind training fan. Pairing it with the KICKR Headwind brings actual climate control to your ride, because as your speed or heart rate increases, so will the fan speed. The KICKR Bike doesn't just work exclusively with Wahoo products though, as you can connect it to virtually any smartphone, GPS, tablet, or computer thanks to Bluetooth, ANT+, and ANT+ FE-C connection capabilities. The bike supports up to three simultaneous Bluetooth connections for a trouble-free start to your workout. It works with all of your favorite training apps such as Zwift, TrainerRoad, and The Sufferfest, and comes with numerous 30 - 60-day free trials of these apps (and more) so you can get started without paying extra for subscriptions.

Great indoor trainer

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I bought this when I decided to get more serious about structured training. It’s been fantastic and training in ERG mode has been eye opening for me. The resistance is very smooth and pedaling feels very good, like riding on the road. The bike itself feels of high quality. I did replace the saddle right away as the one it comes with is not comfortable for me. The bike is relatively stable. It is heavy but it does rock slightly from side to side if you really start pushing. The rocking hasn’t proved to be an issue for me and overall I’m satisfied with the stability of the bike. You do need a level floor to put this on. Works well with my wahoo ELEMNT or the wahoo iPhone app. Need two people if you intend to take this up or down stairs.

Pros and Cons.....

Fit:
True to size

If you are committed to indoor training and you are willing to invest a good deal of money, then this is the product for you. I really like the fact that it integrates almost seamlessly with third party apps like Zwift, Rouvy, Sufferfest, etc. and it makes your virtual experience amazing. There is a learning curve to getting used to how the product works (it took me a few weeks to dial in the fit, gearing, etc). Pros: - Software updates easily with the app (i love being able to customize my gearing through the app) - Integrates and connects to third party apps very easily - Relatively quiet (don't be fooled though, it's not "virtually silent") - about as loud as a microwave but it can get loud at certain speeds/cadences - Makes for a very immersive and realistic ride - ERG mode works well and is forgiving if you fall behind Cons: - Expensive - Saddle and handlebars uncomfortable (disappointing for the price) - you can switch out parts (i had to switch out saddle and stem to get the right fit) but would expect more for the price; my much cheaper spin bikes fit better out of the box - Noise at certain speeds - Some riders may find that their inner thighs rub on the frame - Less stable than my other indoor bikes - will get rocking a little bit when standing/sprinting (I'm a small 125 pounds)

Nice review how much do you weigh I’m almost 2 bills and don’t want it rocking. Thanks

Agreed, there is kind of a high pitched humming noise at certain cadences, but still reasonably quiet. Agreed about the handlebars; it leaves the impression that you're getting ripped off. Same goes for the saddle. Hopefully new tape will help the handlebars a little. They are the cheapest plastic imaginable. On the other hand, the riding experience is surprisingly realistic including tilting features and shifting. it is seamless with Zwift. It's a true pleasure to ride actually. A floor mat and an industrial quality floor fan are helpful. It has been revelatory to learn some basic performance parameters including FTP, W/kg and HR and know where you're at. In summary, $3500 should mean something above the cheapest possible handlebars and saddle. Still, it is super, super fun to ride it on Zwift and the training programs are extensive and effective. Really excited about it overall.

Saving my sanity

Ordered this Friday (great customer service by the way) and it arrived yesterday (Wednesday). Pretty much dropped everything to set it up (which was a breeze) and hopped on this morning for a ride. Connected to Zwift so easily and the fit is perfect. Absolutely replicates my position on my bike which is in Colorado while I wait out this pandemic in Florida (here for work and stuck with no bike and my gym is closed). Had to walk my wife through the process of taking the photo of the bike and dropping pins to get the measurements but it was super easy. Shifting is smooth, changing elevation is so subtle and fun that it brings the total ride inside. Also very quiet. Steep price but in my book so worth it.
