The Wahoo KICKR CORE Smart is ideal for those looking for a more affordable direct drive turbo trainer that still features much of the technology of the brands top-end KICKR.

The ride-feel is realistic and the trainer quiet enough not to disturb your neighbours, while the strongest riders should be satisfied with the 1800 watt power maximum. Compatible with the KICKR CLIMB, you can fully immerse yourself in your indoor training, and outputted results are reliable and accurate to +/- 2%.

Wahoo KICKR CORE Smart Turbo Trainer

Ensure an accurate, reliable and quiet indoor training experience with the Wahoo KICKR CORE Smart Turbo Trainer. A slightly simplified design, compared to the KICKR, makes this a perfect option for riders who are keen on a direct drive option at a lower price point. Utilising the new belt system of the recently updated KICKR, the operation is almost silent, ensuring you can train day or night without causing a disturbance.

A 5.4kg flywheel makes it slightly lighter, yet it still provides a solid and stable ride feel. Whether you're looking to climb, sprint or both, your needs will be well met by the 16% simulated gradient and 1800 watt maximum power output. The +/- 2% accuracy means you'll be able to rely on the data outputs. No matter the app you wish to use, you'll be able to connect your CORE, via ANT+ FE-C, ANT+ Power or Bluetooth Smart. If you're after an even more immersive experience, Wahoo's indoor grade simulator, the KICKR CLIMB, will add physical grade changes to the resistance changes, for a more realistic ride feel.

With this purchase, you will also receive a 14 day free trial of Wahoo SYSTM, a comprehensive training app with a diverse workout library. The science-based approach to training, with options for cycling, running and swimming sessions, plus yoga, bodyweight-based strength and mental training, opens up your workouts to a whole new immersive world, helping you achieve your goals.
