With the updated KICKR Power Trainer, Wahoo offers a straightforward alternative to rocker-plate technology, improves power accuracy, and ease calibration. To keep us from having to source a rocker-plate for our home trainer, Wahoo resourcefully adds five-degrees of side-to-side movement to the KICKR thanks to the new AXIS Action Feet, which replace the standard fixed feet on the KICKR. It’s a simple, convenient, and practical improvement to achieve a more realistic and tunable training experience. During pedaling, the feet allow the trainer to sway back and forth, which Wahoo claims also reduces rider fatigue. Included with the KICKR is a set of AXIS Feet with three stiffness levels, allowing a tunable amount of movement based on your riding goals. Lock the feet out for a typical session or go fully open for full-tilt, virtual races, or any combination that feels comfortable.
On the surface, the new KICKR appears unchanged from the previous generation; however, updated hardware improves power accuracy from +/-2% to +/-1%. With the sharp rise of online racing, precise power readings are critical for preserving the authenticity and reliability of data coming in from racers worldwide. And with the increased accuracy, you’ll have more confidence that you are training to the target numbers. Further extending the accuracy of the new KICKR is a self-calibrating feature that removes the need for manual calibration.
Wahoo maintains features that have made the KICKR its flagship indoor trainer. The electromagnetically controlled flywheel feels natural and road-like, and continuous, wireless communication with online apps and virtual cycling courses creates an immersive training experience. The KICKR replicates a maximum of a 20% incline and can generate 2200-watts of resistance should you ever be able to reach that supernatural ability. The direct-mount style trainer includes an 11-speed cassette and adapters for quick-release and thru-axles. However, XD/XDR cassettes require a separate freehub purchase. And the KICKR supports three, simultaneous Bluetooth connections and is compatible with ELEMNT computers, KICKR HEADWIND, and KICKR CLIMB for a complete indoor training setup.
