Make the most of being inside.
It's been a great season of riding on the roads, but on your last ride you couldn't deny it: there was a hint of fall chill in the air. Come to think of it, the sun seems to have been setting much earlier lately, and the trees on your regular routes are turning orange and red. When did that happen? Consider Wahoo's KICKR Power Trainer when it's time to start thinking about your indoor setup for the cold months ahead. It does its best to make you feel like you're riding outside, offering you the option to create specific, power-based workouts for effective training sessions.
The first thing you may notice about the KICKR is its weight: at a claimed 47 pounds, it's far from the lightest trainer available. But the KICKR isn't trying to be the lightest or the most portable — it includes a 12.5lb high inertia flywheel linked to a cassette to simulate the feel of the road, giving you a more realistic ride and eliminating wear on your rear wheel and tire.
Once you get set up, the KICKR Power Trainer's built-in power meter and resistance unit is controlled wirelessly by Android, Windows, or Apple hardware devices with Wahoo's training app and an impressively comprehensive list of online training sites. It's compatible with ANT+ and Bluetooth as well as most smartphones and computers, so you have your choice of devices and training apps to use with it. It measures speed, distance, power, and cadence at a claimed accuracy of +/-3% without additional sensors. You can choose to set your desired power or resistance yourself or sync the trainer to your training app and not worry about anything but keeping up through the resistance changes.
Though it's foldable, the KICKR Power Trainer needs to be connected to an external power source and must be controlled by a separate device, so it isn't the trainer you'll want to bring with you for pre-race warm-ups. Use the KICKR for its accuracy and for quality indoor workouts that will maintain form carried from summer into late autumn, build winter base miles, and have you ready to get back outside for the races of early spring.
