Wahoo has announced the Kickr Run, a 'first of its kind' handsfree treadmill integrated with Zwift Run. It will launch in the USA this summer, with a global rollout from 2025.

The headline feature is RunFree Mode, described by Wahoo as a “revolutionary new sensing system” that allows the runner to change pace without having to touch the controls. Combined with Zwift Run, users will be able to “let their feet command the speed” as well as “automatically feel changes in gradient” as they run in a virtual world.
