Wahoo KICKR BIKE Review


Everyone seems to want to buy or purchase a bike these days, reasons for this being one of the most loved automobiles around but we are not here to talk about outdoor bike but an indoor training product called the Wahoo KICKR. There is no doubt Wahoo KICKR is the most expensive product the company has to offer and one of the most expensive if not the mostly costly indoor training products you can buy out there. It the company first go at not just only creating an indoor bike but also a totally different technological way doing resistance within a ‘trainer’. It is certainly and impressive bit of kit which gives the user one of nicest feels more than most indoor trainers out there. It is highly configurable and integrates a wahoo angle adjusting climb tech into a static bike which is certainly impressive. The adjustment features on the KICKR BIKE are limitless from the reach to the seat angle even the crank length can be changed or adjusted. The Wahoo KICKR provides you with comfort, agile, balanced, and provides its trainers with a high-quality. The sweetest part of it is that it allows the trainers go through there indoor training with ease


The Wahoo KICKR BIKE provides you with a lot of features one of it being it app. The Wahoo app provides you initial setup to riders of all abilities. It shouldn’t be a problem for sporty families to share the trainer, as far as you’re between 152 and 192 cm tall and also weigh less than 113 kg. Four adjustment points allow you to find your perfect position which also allows the KICKR BIKE to imitate some other bikes geometry for you to try and can make it into an interesting proposition for bike fitters. The app allows SRAM, Shimano and Campagnolo shifters to be simulated and the KICKR BIKE could simulate all from 1 x 9 to 3 x 12 group sets, while chainring and cassette sizes could also be adjusted individually. When you change gears, you’ll get realistic-feeling haptic feedback. It also comes with an intimidatingly large box, but surprisingly enough very easy to put together. It’s heavy no doubt and requires two people for the job, but aside that actual construction is simple. It’s just requires screwing the legs on and slotting in the bar and seat, plugging in the shifters and tightening everything up. It only takes about 20 minutes to do this. Another of its features is it adjustability, like all gym static bikes the Wahoo KICKR is very adjustable. You could easily lower or raise the entire bike with a big lever on the seat tube, and the reach is also adjustable both at the handlebar and the seat. The stem and seat post adjustments – which are normal round tube profiles instead are very okay and have no issues at all. The adjustability means you could easily make your reach right, but could also to experiment by changing your position forwards and backwards relative to the pedals. The seat and bar height can also be adjusted. Basically you can get it to exactly match your bike, and you can also try and tweak the adjustment to a position that suits you best.
