The Wahoo Kickr Rollr is a set of smart rollers which promises to combine the “convenience and natural ride feel of rollers” with the “performance advantages of a smart trainer”.

Just purchased the Kickr Rollr and loving it 😊
do you feel like the side to side front wheel flex will be an issue over time? seems like an after thought.
Sorry But I dont like it. This wahoo system
No power meter on the roller is a non starter. If the Snap is accurate enough (or is it?) why couldn't the roller be accurate?
That's a big pass on Kickr Rollr Smart also price point seems strange when virtually same price as Kickr Core
youtube.com/results?search_query=%23bikeradar #BikeRadar Unfortunately not having a power meter on my bike eliminates this set up for me. How would the roller fare while out of the saddle?
It's crazy how there was nothing about either of these products for so long and then today its blanketing across youtube.
$800 for pedals???
I do wonder about the pressure on the front wheels (spokes) from the clamping system! I guess the Wahoo engineers would have looked at this but it is interesting seeing the wheel locked and the frame rocking side to side, therefore the wheel is taking the harsh lateral forces. I know wheels do take lateral forces anyway, but just interested in the new specific forces that a wheel may not be fully designed for. Hambini?
Do you or would it be best to use a specific turbo tyre on these?
Just bought a kickr snap on sale, I don’t really know why I would want this. I also don’t really understand the need to recreate an “outdoor” feel, especially on a set of rollers that doesn’t really let you experience much of that anyways.
Also contrary to popular belief, I feel like most people don’t have the $$$ for a set of rollers and a separate power meter vs a smart trainer. Seems like a product no one asked for at this point.
seems a bit niche. I'm glad they didn't try to bodge a power meter into it though, as I suspect the small target audience of users who want a semi-permanent turbo with the benefit of being able to shove it in the boot for a pre-race warm up are the kind of users who have got a power meter on their bike already.
What's the stability like on short sharp sprints? I would imagine on a normal roller, you can't just dump 1000W for a second or two without flying off, but I would hope that isn't the case here
What’s the market for this!
I recently purchased the Wahoo Kickr V5 for 815 Euros. I am really surprised to see that this thing costs 799 Euros. Why should you buy this if you can get the Kickr for just a little bit more or even the Kickr Core for even less than the Roller?
Its funny how the industry plays up the importance of aero, light weight, tubeless tryes, wide tyres, disc brakes, etc, etc... All Useless in these indoor setups
