The Wahoo KICKR CORE is the companies budget direct drive smart trainer. But is the littlest turbo good enough to be called a true KICKR?
Smart Trainers, looked at using the Zwift Gear Test protocol
We’ve been waiting a while… Reportedly held up by legal regulatory issues, the Tacx Neo Bike Smart is now in the wild! These are my initial thoughts after a week
It was inevitable. Having multiple trainers, a desk, a hill simulator and a fan, Wahoo at some point was going to have to connect their kit, and join the smart bike party. At Eurobike they did!
There is a whole world of smart trainers now. With options for every person and every budget. But when it comes to budget, coming in at around £500 with offers, the Elite Direto has been the best trainer in terms of price and features. Will Elite be able to maintain that with the new Elite Direto X?
The Elite TUO trainer shows that there is still life in the class bike trainer market. Given that Elite is very much committed to direct-drive units like the Suito and Direto X, what have Elite done to draw buyers eyes to the wheel-on Elite TUO?
An additional letter, and some fiddling under the skin. The Tacx NEO 2 was previously the best smart trainer on the market. Are the Tacx NEO 2T changes enough to justify Tacx keeping the crown? Read on for the lastest Tacx NEO 2T review to find out!
Over the last few years, the direct mount smart trainer has been recognised as the gold standard when it comes to indoor bike training. Kinetic has long relied on the Rock and Roll system to differentiate from rivals, but the lack fo a direct mount trainer has been a sore point. Not any more!
The Elite Nero Smart Rollers are my first ride in the world of parabolic rollers. This is my preview of the Elite Nero system, and initial feels as to Elite new training tool.
It’s 2018 trainer season, and Tacx has updated their flagship trainer. The Tacx Neo 2 has been developed as a result of engineering feedback from the Tacx NEO Smart Bike and a deeper understanding of the complex magnets which go to give the unique characteristics of the Tacx NEO 2. So let’s see what is…
Another year and another crop of turbo trainers. It looks like this is going to be a big one, Elite, Tacx, Cycleops, Kinetic all have new units this year. One of the first on the shelves is the Elite Drivo II – now in black
Autumn is upon us, and that means turbo trainers reviews. This is my first hands-on impression of the stunning Elite Fuoripista as I visited the Elite Factory. So let’s get into things!
The latest Wahoo KICKR is a revamp, but only mildly so. Is it enough of an update to compete against the latest smart trainers? Let’s see!
The Kinetic InRide power sensor allows a simple upgrade of existing Kinetic Trainers. But how effective is that powermeter on Zwift?
The Kurt Kinetic Roll and Roll Smart Control is quite unique in the world of smart trainers, as the elastomer feet allow you to, well Rock and Roll. But is that extra movement a good thing in a Zwift race, or a hindrance in our favourite e-sport? Sounds like we need a Zwift Gear Test!
