Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Expected I have been using the Snap for two months now. It is better than expected. Smart trainers are the way to go. I now get a better workout riding inside thanks to the multiple training apps and ERG functionality. This trainer is perfect for people who like to use their bike inside or out without having to spend time removing the wheel. All in all great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NO more reason NOT to train First Smart Trainer I have purchased. I cannot compare it to other smart trainers. This is being used about 3-5 times weekly. So far, no problems in the last three months. It was literally ready after unpacking. The set-up was relatively quick. Connection is via Bluetooth, and cannot connet about +ant connection. I do not like the app Wahoo Fitness app much. However, need to download both the wahoo utility and fitness app for firmware updates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Bought this a few weeks ago. I didn't believe that it could offer nearly the same affect of outdoor riding. Wow ! Was I wrong ! This is great when using Swift, very addictive !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Trainer I originally had a direct drive "dumb" trainer. It was good but it never seemed like a realistic ride. The Kickr Snap is my first "smart" trainer. I purchased the Pain Cave bundle and glad I did. Setup and pairing was easy. I was riding to Zwift in a matter of minutes. The ride is the most realistic I have ever felt on a trainer. Love the smart features. Now I can track all my rides, inside and out. Excellent trainer, highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indispensible Training Tool I purchased this trainer a couple of months ago. Kick'r Snap's heavy flywheel and six powerful electromagnets provide incredible road feel and realistic climbing simulations on the steepest grades. I'm 5'10" 175lbs and a cat.3 road racer. Using a quality trainer tire and a 36x27 low gear, I cannot make the tire slip. The noise level is comparable to some classic fluid trainers and quieter than many. A short warmup before performing the spindown calibration will ensure accurate and consistent power readings. If your trainer has been powered off for a while and/or moved around a bit, do yourself a favor, perform the standard spin down and then follow it immediatley with the advanced or "Factory" spin down. None of this is an inconvenience to me since I strongly believe that the warmup periods of every online workout I have ever seen is really about ten minutes too short anyway. Take care of those knees. You only get one pair of those to last a lifetime, and when you consider the cost of surgical options, an extra ten minutes of warm up time is nothing. The Kick'r Snap is the perfect solution for riders who have more than one bike with diferrent numbers of rear cogs on each. It is also a great if like me, you want a premium smart trainer experience and you don't have a lot of cash to spend for one. You simply cannot get a better wheel-on smart trainer than the Wahoo Kick'r Snap 2017. I have used this trainer with a Windows 7 PC via ANT+, with an iPad via Bluetooth Smart, a MacPro tower via ANT+, and also controlled directly by my Wahoo Elemnt. I use an iPhone for downloading and installing updates as well as device registration. Go out and get one of these incredible trainers now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing real riding feeling I bought the trainer two weeks ago. I had the doubt between which interactive trainer would fit better my needs. The 12% of climbing simulation has been enough and the pricenter is half of the next model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good machine for the price I bought this for my wife, as she wanted to try out this type of training. I own a kickr. I think if you are really serious the kickr is much better than the snap with a stronger connection and no wheel slip. Still happy with this purchase its easy to set up and a bit lighter than the kikr.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it so far no problems. I bought Certified Reconditioned - 2017 KICKR SNAP Bike Trainer and with the savings I upgraded my kit. I love that it was easy to set up and now I have an indoor trainer I actually train more. That was what I wanted. thanks Wahoo

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enhances your training I purchased this over a month ago now and I upgraded from a cheap smart trainer. The previous trainer was not about the increase the resistance to the same level as the Kickr Snap and the power was way out compared to my Garmin Vector 2 (dual sided). I am so glad that I upgraded and only wished I hadn't bothered with the cheap one first (it was still approx £200 so not that cheap) as my training is really paying off now and I am noticing the benefits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and easy to use I bought the Kickr Snap about two months ago and its been perfect for me. I debated between the Kickr and the Kickr Snap, the Kickr Snap has been more than adequate for daily use. Unless you're Chris Froom, this unit will be better than you can tap in terms of power output. It's very stable for all riding styles. I've been using it with TrainerRoad and it's been great. It's very smooth feeling and very quiet. Easy to set up and use out of the box. Have been recommending to friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing trainer!!! I got this product in the beginning of May. I have zero riding experience and wanted something I could do in my own home to be convienient and leave no excuse not to work out. Since I got this I ride almost nightly. It works great with the zwift app and I do virtual rides where the trainer, my cadence sensor, heart rate monitor and app all sync up. It automatically adds resistance for inclines, and is easy to use and calibrate. I went from never riding to averaging 69 miles a week. I feel great and lost 12 lbs all in the comfort of my own home. I started with a mountain bike and upgraded to a road bike. Easy to connect to the trainer and takes just a second if you want to take it off and take the bike outside. Couldn’t be happier with the purchase. There are cheaper trainers out there but you get what you pay for and I am glad I went with this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I bought this a few weeks ago and love it! Works amazing, easy to set up, quiet, no issues! Feels like a better workout than when I am back on the road! I paired it up with the Zwift app, I’m addicted!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KICKR kicks a--. A good friend encouraged me to buy the KICKR. I have been using it religiously for about a month and I must admit it's been an outstanding experience. As a trainer it's exceeded my expectations. My workouts have been intense and I must admit that from a conditioning perspective I feel so much better.
Date published: 2018-05-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Trainer! No regrets I bought the Kickr Snap about a month ago and I am really happy with my purchase. It has a really good “road” like feel. I was worried about the noise prior to the purchase but I honestly think my drivetrain is louder compared to the Kickr Snap. I also like that it is extremely easy to set up and use. I am so happy I finally pulled the trigger and look forward to riding many miles on my Kickr Snap!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade Ive been nothing but happy with my new trainer. It was an incredible upgrade from old one. Ive only used it on zwift but it gives a realistic experience and insane workout
Date published: 2018-04-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Trainer This is a simple trainer, easy to use. Calibrate and go, I use Zwift more than the other apps. I have no problems, except on cloudy days the Bluetooth Connection isn't great, and the app freezes quite a lot during the training session, other than that I am Happy with it. It takes the monotony out of indoor bike training.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second trainer but first smart unit - excellent A friend has been using the SNAP for some time and told me about it. I purchased mine in June 2017 and have been using it several days a week. I found it to be easy to set up. I suggest using the supplied all-metal skewer. The rear section of the SNAP supports the weight of the bike and the mechanism must do that by slipping over and clamping your rear axle at the ends of that skewer. Many skewers use a plastic nut on the end and that can break. So, use the metal one they give you in the kit. I found setting unit up to be very simple and getting it talking to Zwift was pretty easy. I’m tracking speed and power with the SNAP and cadence with the companion Wahoo sensor and heart rate with my Polar BTLE heart sensor. I am really happy with the way this smart trainer works. I use it several days a week and now train through the winter months as well as in the summer when the weather gets too hot or rainy. I’m using a Trek 520 in the trainer and have a second bike I keep in the garage so I don’t have to lug the trainer bike up/down the basement stairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’m still learning There’s been a couple of points where I’ve had some issues and lags between the equipment and the Zwift app. But I managed to resolve them. It’s just taking some getting use to. I feel like I learn something new about it every time I get on. Otherwise I really love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun I’ve probably done a dozen workous on the kickr snap and BOY IS IT FUN! Riding in Zwift is a blast, especially on hilly routes— the trainer resistance increases the more the gradient does. So if your from the Midwest like I am, you’ll finally put those big cogs in the back to use! Power is great, road feel is good, it’s stable... I don’t have many complaints. I have noticed when doing interval sessions that the power can take a second to stabilize when changing zones... I assume this is the flywheel adjusting? It’s only jumpy for like 5 seconds then it smooths out. If you’re looking for a smart trainer, you won’t be disappointed with the kickr snap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product I’ve had the Snap for about a month now and it lives up to everything they say about it. Workouts on a smart trainer are really workouts! The product is very well built and solid. I only wish I had bought one sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best turbo I have had Bought this turbo about a month ago as a replacement for an elite trainer. Very impressed by how smooth but also how steady it feels to ride / sprint on. Feels realistic on zwift in terms of climbing and is a definite advantage when training. Recommend this highly for anyone who wants more from there turbo without paying for direct drive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Trainer in the game This is the best trainer I have ever used. Great rode feel and very sturdy.
Date published: 2018-03-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Done with cheating when trainning!!!! Awesome. I use both with road bike and MTB. Really quiet ( with some limits of course ). But my favourite part is that you can connect it with a lot of apps, and train with ERG mode doesn’t let you cheat while trainning ( i used to do it a lot, but now i can’t work under the watts I have to ). And the power reading works well for me cause I’m used to work in watts with my road bike but doesn’t have one in the MTB. Only problem is the weight, it weights a lot and not very suitable for transport or move from one room to another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Indoor, Wheel On, Turbo I had been using a manual adjustable turbo with ZWIFT for about 6 months and it wasn't quite right trying to simulate climbs by flipping levers to add more load. I found a WAHOO refurbished KICKR SNAP on the web site ( they don't make it easy to find the page type in refurbished KICKR SNAP into google) saving £100 on the new rrp. Delivered in 3 days. It took less than an hour to setup and paired with ZWIFT first time. I had checked out the user area on the web site prior to purchase and there are great articles on how to do the setup with ZWIFT. You should read the articles on the calibration process and it might be worth checking that your laptop/pc/mobile are capable of supporting the ANT BLUETOOTH interfaces. I have an old phone with android 2 and it doesn't support the Wahoo applications (I had to use the wife's phone). But, what a great experience it is using the SNAP. As the hills kick in and the effort digs it's like being out on the road (without the wind and the rain). Buy one they are great.
