Wahoo Kickr Bike review

The at home exercise bike with seemingly endless adjustability - at a price

Wahoo Kickr Bike
Cycling Weekly Verdict

With its Kickr Bike, Wahoo has really broken new ground. No other exercise bike offers the gradient adjustments we have here, and this makes indoor cycling both more fun and more realistic, potentially having a greater transfer out on the road. The adjustable shifters are excellent, as is the ride quality. The price hike over the competition is quite substantial, those shelling out this much cash will want perfection. For that reason, the lack of device holder and stickiness in some adjustments (on our second hand test model) do need addressing.
