KICKR Power Trainer – World’s First iPhone Powered Bike Trainer
When the weather takes a turn for the worst, serious bikers will have all the equipment they need for a serious workout with the KICKR Power Trainer – World’s First iPhone Powered Bike Trainer. Designed by Wahoo Fitness, the KICKR Power Trainer allows cyclists and triathletes to set resistance, accurately measure power and complete App based workouts all from the convenience of their iPhone.
The simple to use design incorporates Bluetooth 4.0 and ANT+ technology to connect to your iPhone, allowing full resistance control during your workout. No knobs to turn or other mechanical adjustments, while pedaling you can increase or decrease resistance, structure interval workouts, or even simulate real world bike courses all from a touch on your smartphone.
The trainer is engineered to produce an ultra-realistic road feel, equivalent to the inertia of an actual rider on the road and direct power measurement at the hub provides consistent and accurate readings for every grueling mile.
“Cyclist and triathletes will be blown away by the feel of the KICKR,” says Chip Hawkins, CEO of Wahoo Fitness. “We spent a ton of time engineering the feel, fine tuning it for the most realistic ride we’ve ever experienced on an indoor bike trainer. With the wheel off design there is no need for calibration; the power is consistent and accurate every single time. The electronic resistance is driven by your iPhone or tablet, during a ride you can go from hammering up a 15% grade to coasting downhill, instantaneously.”
