Wahoo KICKR gets an update
Auto calibration and "AXIS" feet.
The good ol’ Wahoo Sports KICKR is getting a nice new 5th edition. What I truly like it Wahoo sticking to the name and not making up another name / number. It’s an improvement and just like in cars, it’s the same model. The update itself is small and so is this article about it :)
So the new part is that the KICKR will now come with 3 special AXIS feet allowing the unit to swing from side to side. Better reflecting riding outside in a sprint or up a climb. You can swing left and right and not worry about bending your frame. With three different sets of feet, each with their own stiffness you can customise it to your own liking. And what’s even nicer, you can buy these separately too if you already have a KICKR and want to update your experience!
KICKR Auto Calibration
The real innovation is the automatic calibration for power. Once you stop putting power in the Wahoo KICKR will detect the flywheel free-spinning and will calibrate itself. So you don’t have to do this every now and then and can forget about it.
Wahoo KICKR Prices
New features but no new price. Wahoo is keeping KICKR at the same price as the V4.
Just a note about the “links to buy” in this article, as they are sponsored. I do look for the lowest price I can find at the time of writing in a handful of stores, but by using the links I earn from qualifying purchases made through these links.
