Red LED:

  • Always on (indicates power)
  • Flashes quickly when ANT command/data is received

Blue LED:

  • Blinks once per second when disconnected and advertising Bluetooth
  • Solid when connected via Bluetooth, blinks quickly during information transfers
  • Flashes quickly when connecting to a device via Bluetooth

New KICKR v6+ Wi-Fi LED

  • What is it? A white LED that indicates the WiFi connectivity status of the trainer.
  • Why is it needed? Similar to Bluetooth LED, it helps the user quickly understand the connection status of the trainer.
  • How does it work? The led will slow blink white when searching for a network. Fast blink means it’s discovered the network and working to connect. Solid white means the trainer has a good connection to the network.
