Thanks for choosing Wahoo!

How do I perform a spindown on my Wahoo Smart Trainer using the ELEMNT Bolt?

The ELEMNT has the capability of sending a spindown calibration command to your KICKR or Snap.  This should be completed every 2-3 weeks on a KICKR and before every workout on a Snap.

To perform a spindown:

  1. Plug in your Wahoo Smart Trainer and pair it to the ELEMNT.
  2. Press the Menu button on the left side of the ELEMNT.
  3. Use the Down button on the right side of the ELEMNT to scroll down to your paired smart trainer.
  4. Press the Left button to select "Spin".
  5. Follow the prompts on your ELEMNT to complete the spindown.
  6. Once the procedure is finished, your ELEMNT will notify you the spindown is complete.
