The Wahoo Kickr ROLLR is a unique addition to the Wahoo indoor training line-up. It has an interactive smart resistance roller unit at the back and an a-frame quick mount at the front. This video covers the technical details, how it works, how it feels to ride, and I dig into the specifics of how it responds to SIM and ERG mode tests in the Lama Lab.

ordered , core is soon out the door
Meh. Pass. Spare/TT bike on kickr and im happy. -U10
Just got one and its great 😊
wait so the ROLR has a power meter? why did you sync power to that?
I just rode with a Pace Partner on Zwift. Several riders changed their flag to Ukranian flag in support. I joined them. This is not on topic but wanted to let you know. Cheers!
$50 per warmup outside of the state TT champs
Hmmm. That front wheel flex doesn't look right. I'm looking forward to all the new and interesting failure modes this contraption will reveal.
Clunky design, the one where the front wheel is removed and the trainer hold the front fork is simply take less space and easier to store.
Or just make something like Elite Nero where that is the real smart roller.
I may be missing the point but I thought one of the features of rollers was the freedom to move a bit. Surely fixing the front wheel defeats this? If the front wheel was on a roller as well I'd be interested.
A Smart Roller is a great idea. This isn’t a SMART roller. Sort of like a fancy version of the Feedback Trainer
Another great video hammered out. Reading between the lines about the front wheel issues and what it’s best use would be seems to be NOT for long distances or rough hilly rides. Too much unknown consequences on an expensive component. You seem to be bouncing quite a bit with just a smooth cadence. I’m not sure that would be comfy after the first hour or so. This looks more like a first generation kind of model that is testing the market. That this has to pair with an external power meter also leans towards multiple users using it as a warm up. I can’t understand who they’re marketing this to in the general population who would even be interested with all of the other great reliable tried and true trainers out there. I think this product will really struggle. On the other hand, I was really intrigued by that lil portable back wheeler. If they could drop the price another $50-$75 US, I think that product would be a lot more palatable and sensible given that it also requires external power meter. Great video my man! 😎
My immediate question on seeing this. Why the a-frame at all? To what end? It's more cumbersome, has potential issues with wheel clamping - despite what Wahoo said, and is damn ugly. Why not a simple detachable tripod like the Feedback Sports. Seems a strange decision. If they swapped it to that mode it'd be more popular.
This is a great option for those who want to have just one bike and invest the money on the bike rather than on indoor setup. The setup time is virtually none. Wahoo is an amazing company, kudos to them for brining this concept.
looks awful how the front wheel is supporting your whole body weight rocking side to side
oh. another wheel on trainer ;)
Odd that it has a power output rating, but no power meter. Bring your own power meter? Pass.
I could see this taking off in the pro-space like you've mentioned but as a primary trainer for the first time buyer it'll see limited sales. Bigger question: will Wahoo sell enough of them to make it viable or kill it off in a couple of years?
My Elite Nero smart roller is much more fun
Shane: Happy Birthday little buddy.
Wahoo Direct Connect: Aww, thanks Sha...
