Wahoo KICKR v5.0
Fifth generation KICKR improves precision, ease of use and ride feel
ATLANTA, August 11, 2020 - Wahoo, the banner bearer of workout apps and connected fitness devices, is proud to showcase the latest KICKR smart trainer. The fifth generation KICKR continues and enhances the amazing and realistic ride feel that the WAHOOligans appreciate, which also offers a number of enhancements that will elevate the experience of every single workout.
The new KICKR is the same one used by the World Tour teams INEOS and BORA-Hansgrohe and comes with a number of new features. The class leader KICKR refines the watt precision from + -2% to + -1% using a new autocalibration process. It gives the new KICKR unsurpassed wattage precision without the user having to do a spin down, saving time and ensuring that their data is always accurate.
To create a more natural and comfortable experience on KICKR, the new KICKR comes with the new AXIS feet. The feet allow the bike to tilt up to 5 degrees from side to side at each thread of the pedals in a controlled and realistic motion. As before, the new KICKR is almost silent, providing a better experience reminiscent of cycling outdoors.
Product Manager Tyler Harris says: "With the new updates that enhance any training, the new KICKR will deliver a better experience for all Wahooligans. With autocalibration and improved precision, riders can rely more on their watt data, and with the new AXIS feet, which provide a discreet side-to-side movement, cycling indoors has never been more realistic.”.
