NEW KICKRS | NEW FEATURES | NEW GOALS

Ask any KICKR owner: you’ll pour some serious hours into your smart bike trainer. Since we know you need your KICKR to work efficiently every time you train, we punishingly put the KICKR to the grindstone in the engineering room. We obsess over making it simpler, more efficient, and more powerful in each iteration.

This year we heard your needs and turned the cogs again. The KICKR, in response, is our most adaptable KICKR yet; this is the rider’s calling.

KICKR CLIMB Compatibility

Cyclists love new gear. If you haven’t heard, we’re rolling out a groundbreaking addition to the cycling market: the KICKR CLIMB. We’ve replaced your front wheel with a carbon steel attachment that simulates real world elevation. As you pedal on your smart trainer, you’ll tilt in real-time to the same grading changes that your route dictates. It changes the way we interact with Zwift and our bike trainers. It lifts your training with real burn and feel as you’ll have to stand up and adjust to the new angles. Your pain cave just got taken to new heights.


Because of this new tech, we’ve built the CLIMB to work uniquely with the new KICKR and KICKR SNAP. Your new KICKR has all of the internal advancements required to easily pair up to the CLIMB. Prepare your weary legs for the next generation of uphill indoor training.

12×148 Thru Axle Compatibility

For those riding on thru axle systems, we’ve made an another welcome upgrade to the KICKR: 12×142 and 12×148 thru axle systems compatibility! Your favorite bike can plug right into your indoor bike trainer without the need of an adapter. The newest edition of the KICKR is making it easier to get right into the fun.

Improved Disc Brake Clearance

Our new KICKR has also been readjusted for your rugged disc brakes. We’ve expanded the KICKR system to fit more rotor sizes. As more and more bikes are using disc brakes, the chances that the next bike you use on the KICKR will have them is high.

It’s time to get your hands on the KICKR. If you’re a new adopter to smart bike trainers, or looking to upgrade, you’ve picked the perfect time to check out the new KICKR.

4 Goals to Reach With Your New KICKR


Become a Performance Metrics Wizard

With our upgraded KICKR system, we’re pumping out the most accurate measurements of your training. In conjunction with the Wahoo Fitness ELEMNT, our ecosystem will keep you informed during your training. Working on your cadence or threshold? We’re calculating professional-grade metrics. We challenge you to put that advanced data to good use this year.

And don’t worry: it’s okay to obsess over your metrics. We obsess with the numbers too. This is a safe place.

Double Your KICKR Training Sessions

New Thru Axle compatibility means all of your bikes can be used on the KICKR. We heard your needs and engineered a more capable ride. Set up your indoor training space with the bike you want and save time. Busy schedule? No excuses not to ride with the new KICKR.


Explore New Apps (or Reinvent Your Favorites!)

The creation of the KICKR CLIMB will change the way you train. We designed the CLIMB to work exclusively with the KICKR and KICKR SNAP. Now, you can experience real-time gradient changes on virtual routes and structured workouts from your favorite training apps like Zwift or TrainerRoad. We are only getting stock of the KICKR CLIMB in 2018.

You’ll love the feeling of the CLIMB – it replicates the climbing grades you love to hate. Whether it’s climbing to the top of Zwift’s South Pacific virtual paradise Watopia, or conquering the real Alpe d’Huez’ 7.9% average gradient downloaded to your ELEMNT, expect to feel some burn within your favorite training program.

Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, chart your own course — the KICKR CLIMB can handle it. Fly through a -10% descent or rise to an insane +20% gradient; the choice is yours with a tap of the remote. Your bravery is only the limit.


Master Popular Routes

Did you follow your friend on Live Track while they attempted Super Flag, and now you want to try? The KICKR was crafted to help you better prepare for the ascent. With the introduction of the CLIMB to the Wahoo Fitness ecosystem, you can train for your next cycling trip by downloading your favorite Strava segments and experience the hills in real, elevated immersion.
