Description

Don't give in.

As the leaves take on the bright hues of autumn and begin to fall, shorter days and plummeting temperatures force you to finally concede that it's time to outfit the indoor cycling haven. Give those trainer doldrums a kick and boost your winter training routine with the Wahoo KICKR SNAP PowerTrainer. When you're stuck indoors and out of the snow, it does its best to make you feel like you're riding outside with options to create specific, power-based workouts for effective training sessions.

The first thing you may notice about the KICKR SNAP is its weight: at a claimed 38lb, it's not the lightest trainer available. But the KICKR SNAP isn't trying to be the lightest or the most portable. Instead, it includes a 10.5lb high-inertia flywheel with an easy-to-use wheel-on design to mimic the feel of the road to a maximum power output of 1,100 watts.

Once you get set up, the KICKR SNAP 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 4.0 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, and power at a claimed accuracy of +/-5% 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 SNAP 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 SNAP 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.

The Wahoo KICKR SNAP PowerTrainer is compatible with 650c and 700c road wheels and 24-29in mountain wheels with 130mm or 135mm hub spacing.

Great Value in Smart Trainer

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I really really wanted a direct mount trainer but price and availability (like everything in bikes currently) when this popped up I had seen the reviews: solid foundation, heavy fly wheel for good feel, and plenty of resistance to simulate pretty good climbs. Made a huge difference to my enjoyment of virtual platforms in shifting from standard fluid trainer to this. It is actually quieter and much more like riding on the road. Getting bike in and out is a "snap" you set the non-drive side in, and flip down the lever. Crank up the rotor to engage with the tire and you are ready to go. I currently use a TACX trainer tire (this is the one pain, the need to swap tires or have a second wheel...or just wear out your rear tire...) and it works well though on step ascents even with it cranked into the tire pretty hard I can still induce some slip. That is more the tire than trainer. Handy that it has BT and ANT+ however...BT to my PC wahoo not so hip to that but it is working well now (there is a lot of variety in standards support etc) and for ANT+ rather than just putting the little USB antenna into laptop's slot, they suggest putting a long USB cable on so the antenna can be placed behind the trainer. That seems very strange to me. I have used it with Zwift, Rouvy, and Sufferfest through the PC, my Galaxy S9+ and my iPad and once you are setup it is good -- again BT issues can be the biggest challenge and on the devices in particular since apps don't fully exit sometimes one app in background can muck with the app you are in.

Use it every day

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I've had this since spring, and I use it basically every day. Really no complaints; it's easy to set up and store, syncs with my laptop easily, and I had no problems fitting it to my bike. Occasionally, when I have the resistance super high I can get a little wheel slip, but it's basically never a problem.

Best Indoor Equipment Ever..!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Fit:
True to size

The Kicker Snap is very silent and easy to use. You can pair it with your iPhone and measure all your exercise by using the Wahoo APP. The only thing that you have to be careful is the wheel adapter for 142 mm (is not included with the Kicker Snap and you have to get it apart for 70 US$).

Outstanding product in terms of performance and quality! Sturdy frame construction and exceptionally responsive in interacting with virtual apps such as Zwift, Rouvy, and Fulgaz. After riding on a CycleOps classic trainer for the past 15 years, the Kickr Snap has transformed indoor training into a fun and inspiring adventure!

Haven't ridden a trainer in years, thought it would be the same experience from years ago, but was totally surprised by the technology built into this, the Bluetooth works great, works great with zwift and climber! No more bored indoor sessions, well at least for this homebody! lol

I have a Giant Revolt with 142 hub spacing. Would this trainer be compatible, the description only mentions 130 and 135.

Hi Matt, Yes. With a separate adapter. Item # ELI001L

Getting into bike shape!

This is great to get into bike shape during those colder wetter months. Been great to start riding at home and its small enough to detach the bike and hide away in storage.

This is the ticket

Familiarity:
I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

If you are looking to stay in shape throughout the whole year, but live in an area where the ability to ride during the winter is tough due to the conditions then I strongly recommend looking into this trainer. It brings indoor cycling to a whole new level.

Now there is no "off season"

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

As the days have gotten shorter and colder, this trainer gives me no excuse not to ride. Easy to set up, super quiet, and the integration with tracking and power apps is great. So happy with this purchase. Just needs a plug that I can use to power the TV by riding.
