Rated 5 out of 5 by from Three years of flawless performance I have now used the Core for over 10,000 Zwift miles. Other than a couple of stickers coming off, I have zero complaints. It's quiet and works exceedingly well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definite Upgrade Upgraded from a Kickr Snap. I was unsure if things would be that much better but I was definitely wrong. Ride feel, accuracy, smoothness of changes, noise level and so on. The Snap is no slouch in its own right but I'm happy I took the plunge into a direct drive for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wahoo CORE—great smart trainer! This smart trainer is easy to connect to ZWIFT. Calibration with the Wahoo app and with ZWIFT was a snap. The trainer is also very quiet and smooth. One criticism though. Your website should make it clear that a Shimano 11 speed cassette, like the 105, works well with a Campy 11 speed rear mech. This clarification would avoid a great deal of confusion. Otherwise, a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great investment I love this trainer. Its like riding for real. I also love that its super quiet. The integration with training software has also been very, very good. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value on a solid smart trainer After reading all the complaints about flywheel knocking noises, I was ready to buy another brand trainer. But I eventually chose the WAHOO Core trainer and I happy that I did. The trainer was easy to connect to the app (including ZWIFT), calibration was effortless, the BT connection does not drop (an issue with my old Kinetic smart trainer) and the trainer is very smooth and quiet. My only complaint is that WAHHO does not give buyers an option to choose a Campy freehub body. A Shimano cassette works well enough, but all of my bikes have Campy and I have a collection of spare cassette for different riding conditions and I could have use any one of them. Instead, I had to spend extra money on a Shimano cassette and I am not happy about that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Well designed and straight forward product. Accurate sensors with quiet operation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Massive step up from wheel on smart trainers. Only had the Kickr Core a few days. Bought a refub one, not noticably different from any brand new product. The ride feel is so much more like riding on the road. The power accuracy (according to my power pedals) is spot on. Perfect for sufferfests. Assuming I can come back and edit this review, I will update it after a month or so of use. If the other Wahoo stuff is of similar quality, I'll be moving bike computers from Garmin to Wahoo soon.
