KICKR Core turbo trainer
The KICKR Core by Wahoo is not a roller trainer, but a chain driven smart trainer for realistic indoor training. The compact turbo trainer offers a similar scope of features to the big wheel-off flagship KICKR. The core of the indoor training partner is the proven flywheel technology with a progressive electromagnetic roller brake. The flywheel technology creates the same resistance experienced in outdoor climbs and descents for a realistic ride experience. In contrast to a standard roller trainer, the KICKR Core transfers the power through the whirring chain to the individually adjusted cassette (not included). Simply remove the rear wheel of your racer and clamp the rear stay into the robust trainer after having fitted the respective Shimano/Sram compatible freehub body. The indoor trainer is compatible with QR skewers up to 135 mm and 12mm thru axles of up to 148 mm; corresponding axle adapters are included. Simply connect the trainer to the power supply, calibrate the KICKR Core by spinning down and start eating miles.
As the trainer is equipped with many technical features, it allows you to measure and analyse important parameters like speed, distance and power via the app for demanding training at home. A separately sold Wahoo RPM Cadence Sensor will even allow you to measure the cadence (product code 2104337). Compatibilities with iOS, Android and PCs as well as modern network technologies ensure highly accurate performance measurement. Apart from Bluetooth Smart (BLE), the indoor trainer comes with ANT+ FE-C, which allows for a wireless connection to a smartphone etc. as well as pairing with cadence and heart rate sensors, such as the TICKR X heart rate chest strap (product code: 2268049). Being compatible with iOS, Android and desktop apps, the trainer allows for intuitive handling. When using devices without integrated ANT+ technology, the Wahoo Fitness ANT+ dongle (product code 2268039) can help pair the devices. LED indicator lights confirm that KICKR CORE is powered, connected and transmitting via Bluetooth Smart and/or ANT+.
A wide range of apps turns the KICKR Core into a communicative training computer and a virtual training machine with fun factor. This gives you the freedom to download your favourite training programme – apart from Wahoo and partner apps – from the Play Store for a perfect workout that suits your individual needs. Wahoo Fitness, TrainerRoad, Swift, Komoot, Strava or Cycling GPS are just some of the compatible apps.
In combination with smart accessories from Wahoo’s range, you can turn your simulated bike tours into real indoor adventures for a perfect training environment. Thus, the KICKR CLIMB (product code 2268038) simulates the grade based on the digital route profile, while the KICKR HEADWIND (product code 2279001) simulates wind speeds and cools you down during exhausting sections.
