Rated 5 out of 5 by from just an excellent trainer Hi All, I purchased this trainer in Nov'18. At that time it was a new model and there were a few niggles to get sorted. Wahoo was super responsive and got the matter fixed in short order without quibbling. I have since used the trainer for 7 months every day or every other day. I'm 215 lbs with good stomp, and this trainer has been flawless. It connects within a couple of seconds (bluetooth Mac), is utterly quiet (the only noise is my fan and my drive train). The resistance changes are fast and the 17% grade max is plenty in my opinion. People seem to get hung up on max values; resistance, watts and whatnot. Almost all of us ride between 150-400 watts and cannot sustain climbs above 15% for any length of time. This trainer is the best balance of price and performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100% effective I wait 2 months before write this review. Currently I have trained 582km with a total time of 21hrs and I am more than happy with my Wahoo KickrCore. The trainer is super still (of course it makes the normal noise from someone riding a race bike at 35km/hrs so don’t think you can train next to your sleeping baby) in a separate room you can train at any time! The resistance is so real that every pedaling counts what makes it 100% effective. I would definitely recommend for sporadic or heavy training, easy to use if you are handy and so far it works perfect together with Zwift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value trainer out there I've never been so excited to train indoors. First off, the setup was simple. The quality of the construction is fabulous. I love being able to connect using either Bluetooth or Ant+ to other accessories. The seamless integration between my phone and apps. The app has a great and simple interface with lots of control options. It also connects with with 3rd party apps life Strava. I feel more ready than ever before coming from the off-season. I've had two outdoor rides the spring (because I live in MN) and already feel like I'm in mid-season condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best indoor trainer ever I’ve had the Kicker Core trainer for about two months now and this is the best indoor trainer that I’ve either owned or tried. The operation is very smooth and amazingly quiet. The ride feel is road realistic. The trainer is easy to assemble and set up and it works perfectly with the fitness app. The app itself is also easy to use. The customer service is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is awesome I had a rough start with Kickr Core, when it seemed to have some compatibility issues with my Giant Defy advanced (some grinding), and wrote a one star review initially. Once I mounted a different bike however (much simpler Fuji Sportif), everything started working great, and Zwift'ing is a blast. I should have rated it four stars perhaps for the quite lengthy initial trouble, but now with things working well and the Kickr delivering both fun and training, I don't want to rate it any less than five stars. It is indeed fairly quiet, with my box fan being louder than the trainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet kickr - save a few $$$ I was torn between getting the kickr18 and the kickr core. Decided the extra features on the kickr18 weren't worth the squeeze to me. I had to send my 1st unit back after around 400 miles on it. It developed an odd squeak. They shipped a new unit out a couple of weeks after I submitted a query about it. 2nd unit is holding strong. Would recommend. My only gripe is I wish it had a handle to aid in moving it around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good Easy to take into use, connects without hassle and works like a charm. Only minor thing at least with my unit is small clicking sound at higher speeds, otherwise very silent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from “I love the Core!” I bought this trainer as an upgrade from my Kickr Snap which I loved. This trainer has taken my indoor cycling to another level. This is much more accurate and I don’t get any slip, which I experienced on the snap. I ride Zwift a lot and love the mountains it can replicate, Alpe du Zwift springs to mind. Wahoo build quality products and this trainer is built to last. “A month with the Core is like a month on the farm, I love the Core!”
