Description of Wahoo Fitness KICKR 2016 PowerTrainer

The bike trainer of the 2016 Tour de France winner is getting even better!

For 3 years Wahoo Fitness and Team Sky, with the three-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome, have had a successful partnership - and since 2016 Wahoo is the official supplier of bike trainers to the team. Froome and his teammates have been using the KICKR during the Tour de France 2016 already to warm up before and cool down after the straining stages.

"Team Sky and Wahoo share a common approach when it comes to innovation and continuous improvement. We believe they have developed a market-leading product and we are excited about using the KICKR in the team and working with Wahoo to continue to develop and improve their products., said Tim Kerrison, Team Sky's Head of Performance Support, in early 2016.

And the fruits of that joint effort are now already ready to be reaped, as Wahoo releases the brand-new improved successor of its merited bike trainer: the KICKR 2016!

What are the new features of the KICKR 2016?

Wahoo stick to their style and present the new device in a straightforward and compact design.

Optimized carrying handle: Compared to the predecessor, the handle is considerably more ergonomic and perfectly balanced to ease handling, transport and storage of the KICKR 2016 significantly.

Overhauled flywheel: Whopping 5.7 kilograms ensure a maximum of cycling realism.

Quieter performance: The low noise level of only 61 dB makes the KICKR 2016 one of the quietest flywheel bike trainers on the market. That's not louder than a regular conversation at a distance of 1 meter.

LED lights indicate power and connectivity: The two signal lights provide information about whether the device is powered or not and show the status of the wireless connection.

Optimized performance algorithms allow for more responsiveness and a more realistic ride: In close cooperation with pro cyclists, Wahoo Fitness has been working with a lot of dedication to close the gap between simulated and real rides.

Maximum incline of 20%: Thanks to improved settings it is now possible to simulate even the steepest inclines at an unprecedented level of realism.

Training with the KICKR 2016

The Wahoo Fitness KICKR Power Trainer allows a monitored home training using iPhone, iPad, Android phone, Mac or PC that makes great fun and, incidentally, also improves performance according to your training plan. Using the ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart sensors, it receives the periphery device's signals for a controlled workout. The new home trainer can be used with all standard mountainbikes and roadbikes with wheels of different sizes. Simply take the rear wheel off, attach your own bike to the KICKR and start rolling. The KICKR 2016 promises particularly accurate power measurements thanks to Wahoo Accu power as well as extremely quiet, almost noiseless training rides with the Wisper Tech technology. Feeling the road when cycling is very authentic - a real kick for everyone exercising at home. Even those who are traveling can train. The trainer is fully foldable and therefore portable. With a respective power adapter, it is possible to run the KICKR from your car via the cigarette lighter, e.g. for cooling down in the evening after a straining stage.

Via a special software TrainerRoad continuous performance improvement is achieved when training with the help of individual training plans. Each training is re-adjusted to the respective current fitness level. Race simulations stimulate the athletes in addition to more training sessions and thus perform even better. The motivation is endless with a wide variety of fitness apps: Kinomap lets you retrace known race tracks and round trips almost everywhere in the world. Riding once through the Berlin Brandenburger Tor or up to Alpe d'Huez? Everything is possible with the KICKR 2016.

"Zwift users love KICKR because it's an ever more accurate and detailed simulation of real world conditions."
(Mike McCarthy, Vice President for Partnerships at Zwift and former pro cyclist)

Of course, the KICKR 2016 is also (and specifically!) compatible with Zwift, the social multiplayer cycling app that lets you ride together with or against other home cyclists in virtual tours or races. No other bike trainer provides this level of realism when riding online!

Sehr stabiler Trainer, deutlich leiser als mein alter und dank installierter Kassette sofort einsatzbereit, Fahrrad drauf, mit Trainer Road auf meinem iPad verbunden und los gehts. Der enthaltene Trittfrequenzsensor ist eine willkommene Zugabe, bei mir funktioniert er problemlos und unauffällig. Klare Kaufempfehlung!
Habe den neuen KICKR seit Weihnachten im Einsatz und bin vollauf zufrieden. Er ist leise, kommt mit Kassette und war sofort einsetzbar. Für die Nutzung am Computer ist ein ANT Adapter notwendig. Seit es Zwift für das ipad gibt nutze ich den KICKR nur noch via bluetooth am iPad. Für Tablet und Smartphone ist die Programmauswahl ohnhin grösser als am Rechner und den ANT Adapter muss man beim fast allen Trainern zusätzlich kaufen. Von mir eine klare Empfehlung zumal aus Vollstahl und absolut robust und kaum Plastik, was für mich ein Hauptrgrund des Kaufes war.
Leider ist das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis miserabel. Nicht nur das man für den Preis nicht mal einen Dongel automatisch mitbekommt, man muß noch einen für 40 Euro dazuholen. Das ist für ein angebliches Spitzenprodukt schon ein dicker Minuspunkt
Viel störender ist aber das doch sehr laute Gerät. Die angeblich " leise " Laufweise kann ich nicht bestätigen. Mein alter Rollentrainer von Tacx wurde gerade wegen des Lärmes ausgemustert. Meine große Vorfreude wurde aber sehr schnell aufgehoben. Der neue Wahoo steht dem alten im Lärm in nichts nach.Ein weiteres Minus ist der Trittfrequenzgeber. Dieser funktioniert nach Lust und Laune. Auch nach wechseln der Batterie war es nicht besser. Mein Fazit: Vergleichen.Wahoo hält nicht was es verspricht
