Enjoy all the benefits of a direct drive smart turbo with the Wahoo KICKR Core. It delivers a realistic, accurate, and quiet indoor training experience by using the proven flywheel technology and advanced algorithms of Wahoo's legendary indoor bike trainers.
Built to withstand the toughest workouts, the Core can simulate a hill grade of up to 16% whilst measuring speed, power, distance and cadence. Enhanced power accuracy can provide accurate power measurement of +/- 2% and generate up to 1800W of resistance. The belt motor drivetrain on the Core is designed specifically to provide a smooth and virtually silent riding experience whilst the flywheel provides you with the precise inertia needed to recreate an outdoor ride feel while training indoors. It provides the most realistic ride feel especially when using virtual riding/training platforms like Zwift, The Sufferfest, and Trainer Road.
The design of the Core ensures clearance for flat mount and disc brake equipped bikes and features 12x142 and 12x148 thru axle compatibility in addition to standard 130/135mm quick release. It is also compatible with 8, 9, 10, and 11 speed cassettes and gives you the flexibility of adding your preferred cassette to the trainer, so that you can fully mimic your outdoor groupset.
Pair the Core with Wahoo's smart KICKR Headwind to get a powerful breeze to keep you cool and a TICKR heart rate monitor that will tell the Headwind when it needs to increase in strength as you work harder!
The following bikes are not compatible with the standard adapters included with KICKR CORE. However, updated Thru Axle adapters have been produced to resolve compatibility issues for these frames with Shimano and Campagnolo drivetrains (not compatible with SRAM XDR drivers).
