First up, the Wahoo Kickr. We've had these
since they came out and we really rate them. Kickr is direct mount,
so you simply remove your rear wheel and then mount your bike
directly on the cassette on the Kickr itself, securing it with a QR
skewer. Done. Minimal fuss, no changing skewers, no worn tyres.
The Kickr, (and the Snap, it's simpler cousin), is built around
a heavy, high-inertia flywheel that replicates the feeling of
cranking up climbs and descending full pelt out on the open road.
The resistance generated by the flywheel is controlled by an app, a
variety of which are available. This allows you to control your
training experience from your smart phone, tablet or laptop. Apps
like Zwift let you ride along with others and you feel the
resistance change as you chase up hill. With ANT+ connectivity you
can monitor all your data in app, and the Kickr is also compatible
with third party power meters.
The ability to set your power and resistance means that you get
a more efficient workout, perfect for intervals and other
time-crunched training options. The Kickr is available now at
