In-Depth Review: 🤍dcra.in/KICKR2020 Wahoo has just announced their latest generation KICKR, now in its 5th iteration. This new unit adds compressing feet to reduce vibrations on hard floors as well as slightly increase motion. It also eliminates the need for calibration by adding a new zero-calibration algorithm, as well as increasing an accuracy claim to +/- 1% (from +/- 2%). Further, it adds a wired connectivity option for a future accessory, to allow direct connection to your home network (potentially eliminating dropout issues for some people). 0:00 What's new! 2:18 Unboxing 3:20 AXIS Feet Explainer 5:05 AXIS Feet Test Comparison 8:40 Wired Connectivity Port 10:28 Zwift, TrainerRoad, Sufferfest 11:07 Road feel 11:52 Noise & Audio Tests 13:10 Zero calibration 14:13 Accuracy Tests 16:28 Is it reliable? - The Site ► 🤍🤍dcrainmaker.com Main Camera ► 🤍amzn.to/2EWbhMA Action Cam ► 🤍amzn.to/2PVWoAg All Camera Gear ► 🤍dcra.in/DCRCamera Instagram ► 🤍instagram.com/dcrainmaker Facebook ► 🤍facebook.com/dcrainmaker Twitter ► 🤍twitter.com/dcrainmakerblog Strava ► 🤍🤍strava.com/athletes/dcrainmaker Most Music ► 🤍player.epidemicsound.com/#/ #WahooKICKR #KICKR #WahooFitness
I have a new KICKR purchased Aug 2022 and had a problem straight away with the Cadence tracking. It would jump all over the place during a workout, causing the resistance to constantly change as well - very frustrating. I just exchanged an email with support and they told me to do a Factory Spin-down. I plan to try this in the morning.
if you could recommend 1 trainer, which would you choose? Just cause it's more expensive make it better?
Why would they build a useless 80s era port into a trainer that immediately requires an adapter? Did I miss something?
Are you going to release a 12 speed version of Shimano? I think this model is not compatible
There was no way they could fit a RJ45 connector there that is couple of mm wider than RJ11. Sure, option to sell a $99.99 adapter is a better option.
omg...it is actually an rj11 port?!!? LOL! r they having a laugh??
I just purchased a Kickr v5 and got it set up last night, coming from an Elite Direto that I've been training on for 4 years. A couple of things that have been troubling me that are different then the way the Direto functioned, wondering if I can work that out. I'm pairing with Apple 4k TV via Bluetooth and using Zwift. I did a quick test in ERG mode, first thing is that when I accelerate or spin up faster, the power or speed does not change in Zwift. I know ERG holds you to a certain power, but on the Direto it would show those changes (increase speed and power in Zwift) then average back down to the set power within a few seconds. Maybe this is something that can be changed in the APP? I haven't tried to play with the ERG mode smoothing or speed simulation yet. I'm hoping that will make it more like what I was used too. Second, the effort at a given power in ERG mode seams to be way off. I know the Kickr is suppose to be more accurate then the Direto, but this is like 15% - 20% difference. Example; Doing a Vo2 set of 5min x 5 ERG intervals, usually around 310w, I could barely get through the first one, and during the 2nd I had to drop the power to around 270w, and that felt more like what I was used too on the Direto. My last 20min FTP test on that trainer was 264w (2 weeks ago/ 56yrs old 77kg) which is up from 240w a few months ago. Maybe the Direto just sucked when it came to accuracy, and if that's the case I'll have to re-adjust all my workouts to match the lower power numbers that the Kickr is reporting, kind of sucks from a motivation stand point :-( My power numbers have improved outside on the bike too, but the funny thing is I've always been able to hold more power on the trainer then on the bike, a lot of people report the opposite.
Does it come with cassette?
check your BB， looks like your crank is shaking.
If the price is the same, which one, this Kickr or Neo2T is better for reliability, tech support and fast response in ERG?...
I currently have a first Gen kickr which has been rinsed for about 80k km, so its started to feel really sluggish and the accuracy seems to have nosedived when I test it against my various powermeters (power is down by 20-30w compared to my 2 separate stages powermeters).. how much of a difference am i going to see upgrading to the V5 Kickr?
Dude, buy shorter stem ffs
If the price of kickr v5 is same with neo 2T, which one is recommended and more durable?
Does this do a pedaling efficiency score like the WATT bike?
Why the hell a phone cable...
Hi DC Rainmaker, great vid, thx for that, short question re clearance. On my Taxc Neo 1 I cant ride in gear one as the cage on my 11 speed C is touching the plastic of the Neo. It looks that the Kickr V5 doesnt have the issue, can you confirm ? Same if you have disc brakes. Seen brakes touching the plastic cover too (currently not an issue for me as I have Rim Bs).
What would be the best Wahoo trainer for a 29inch Mtb? Looking for a winter training option.
A question, how do you brake to stop the rear part? Because you can’t use the bike brakes...
