The Wahoo KICKR CORE Trainer 2018 is the new bicycle trainer from Wahoo and positions itself between the competitively priced KICKR Snap and KICKR Power Trainer. With a heavy flywheel, a power of 1800 watts and a maximum slope of 16 percent this powerhouse is hardly inferior to the top trainer of Wahoo, but you can still expect a trainer with a very competitive price-quality ratio. This CORE together with the Kickr Power is also the quietest bike trainer on the market. This trainer offers a realistic and accurate training experience as you would expect from Wahoo. The construction is made of robust stainless steel and is therefore very solid and durable. Easily record your speed, power and distance with the internal power meter. The trainer communicates via Bluetooth Smart and ANT +. This makes it very easy to connect with various devices and programs, including sports watches, sensors, bicycle computers, Zwift and TrainerRoad. Thanks to the integrated LED lights you can immediately see which connections are active. This KICKR is particularly robust and stands firmly on its legs, so that you can give everything to kick away the resistance up to 1800 watts.
