By using the Wahoo's proven flywheel technology and advanced algorithms, the KICKR CORE gives a realistic ride feel with controlled resistance compatible with a multitude of training apps including Zwift, TrainerRoad, Training Peaks, and Sufferfest. Quickly and easily follow the included quick setup directions, take advantage of the included free 30 trials to Zwift, TrainerRoad, or Sufferfest, and sync your rides to Strava with a free 60 days of Strava Summit.
