The KICKR will work out of the box with several software solutions. We are expecting more soon. If you know of one that is not currently listed, please let us know!

  • Wahoo Fitness App
    Wahoo’s App controls the KICKR in four different ways
    • Level mode: We’ve built 10 levels, each with a progressive resistance curve, just like riding outside. For example, the faster you pedal, the harder it gets – simulating rolling and air resistance.
    • Erg mode: With the KICKR, you can set a target wattage and the KICKR will remain at that wattage as you ride independent of speed and cadence. This is the ultimate way to train with Power.
    • Sim mode: With sim mode, you can enter your weight, bike type, riding position, headwind, and grade and the KICKR will accurately model the power curve just as if you were riding outdoors.
    • Resistance mode: For those of you who need to be in control, this allows you to adjust resistance of the brake manually from 0 to 100%
    Compatibility: Any iPhone with Bluetooth 4.0: iPhone 4S, 5, 5S, 5C, 6 & 6 Plus; iPad 3 and newer; iPad mini Older iPhones/iPads can collect data with the use of an ANT+™ adapter for iPhone
