WAHOO KICKR CORE DIRECT DRIVE SMART TURBO TRAINER

Wahoo
£699.00

The Wahoo KICKR Core is perfect for those looking for a more affordable direct drive turbo trainer that still features much of the technology of Wahoo's market-leading KICKR. The ride-feel is realistic and the trainer quiet enough not to disturb your neighbours, while the strongest riders should be satisfied with the 1800 watt power maximum. Compatible with the KICKR CLIMB (sold separately), you can fully immerse yourself in your indoor training, and outputted results are reliable and accurate to +/- 2%.

Ensure an accurate, reliable and quiet indoor training experience with the Wahoo KICKR CORE Smart Turbo Trainer. A slightly simplified design, compared to the KICKR, makes this a perfect option for riders who are keen on a direct drive option at a lower price point. Utilising the new belt system of the recently updated KICKR, the operation is almost silent, ensuring you can train day or night without causing a disturbance.

A 5.4kg flywheel makes it slightly lighter, yet it still provides a solid and stable ride feel. Whether you're looking to climb, sprint or both, your needs will be well met by the 16% simulated gradient and 1800 watt maximum power output. The +/- 2% accuracy means you'll be able to rely on the data outputs.

No matter the app you wish to use, you'll be able to connect your CORE, via ANT+ FE-C, ANT+ Power or Bluetooth Smart. If you're after an even more immersive experience, Wahoo's indoor grade simulator, the KICKR CLIMB, will add physical grade changes to the resistance changes, for the more realistic ride feel.

The KICKR CORE is the latest in Wahoo's line of smart indoor bike trainers. It delivers a realistic, accurate, and quiet indoor training experience by using the proven flywheel technology and advanced algorithms of Wahoo's legendary indoor bike trainers. The KICKR CORE indoor trainer is built with the durability to withstand all of your indoor training sessions and no other brand of smart trainers has more apps and software training options, including Zwift and Trainer Road.

BONUS! When you register your KICKR in the Wahoo Fitness app, you'll receive these awesome offers from our partners:

  • 60 Days FREE of Strava Summit for new Strava members
  • 30 Days FREE of TrainerRoad for new and existing TrainerRoad users
  • 60 Days FREE of The Sufferfest Training Center for new Sufferfest members

How Much Can I Save Via Cyclescheme

Check out our personalised savings calculator!

Cyclescheme Savings Calculator

The cycle to work scheme is a government initiative which allows employees to hire bicycles tax free from their employers using salary sacrifice. As the payments into the scheme are made before tax and national insurance are calculated this leads to potential savings of up to 42%

Typical example for an employee earning £18,000 pa

Please Note: Savings will differ for each individual

If your employer is a member of a cycle to work scheme (Cyclescheme, Bike2Work etc) all you need to do is visit one of our stores, or contact us to ask us for a quotation. Quotes can be provided for bicycles and bicycle accessories only. Once we have issued you a quotation, simply forward it to your employer for approval. Once you have been approved, you'll soon receive a certificate which can be redeemed for your new bike. The process usually takes between 2 - 3 weeks

Cyclescheme is available for mail order however a delivery charge of £29 will apply. This charge cannot be include in your quotation and must be paid for prior delivery. 

Please note: Unless your employer has a consumer credit licence the maximum spend limit for a bicycle & accessories is £1000. You can purchase bikes over £1000 and pay the difference, however legal ownership of the bike will remain the employers regardless of how much extra has been paid.
