Wahoo Launches Its Most Accurate KICKR Yet

Fifth-generation smart training improves accuracy, ease of use, and ride feel

ATLANTA, August 11, 2020 -- Wahoo, the leader in workout apps and connected fitness devices, is excited to reveal the newest KICKR smart trainer. The fifth-generation KICKR improves on the legendary realistic ride feel that Wahoo riders prize, and also offers riders a wide range of improvements to elevate every ride.

The new KICKR, the same smart trainer used by World Tour teams INEOS and BORA - hansgrohe, brings to market several new features. This version of the category-leading KICKR refines power accuracy to +/-1% from +/-2% by using a proprietary auto-calibration process. This gives the new KICKR unsurpassed power accuracy without the need for users to perform a spin down, saving valuable time and providing riders confidence in the accuracy of their power data. 

RLVNT Distribution AB, leading distributor of wearables and sports technology products, is happy to see Wahoo taking the best trainer in the world and do it even better. “We always strive to give our customer a better experience and now we can do it again says a pleased Totte Lindén, Nordic Sales & Marketing Manager.

Additionally, to create a more natural, comfortable ride feel, the new KICKR also comes equipped with the new AXIS feet. These feet allow a bike installed onto the trainer to smoothly tilt up to 5 degrees from side-to-side with each pedal stroke in a controlled, realistic motion. Like the previous KICKR, this version is nearly silent which makes riding it feel more like riding outdoors.
