Spindown calibration on a KICKR v4 (2018) or earlier, CORE, and SNAP using an ELEMNT, BOLT, or ROAM

ELEMNT GPS Bike Computers have the ability to send spindown commands to your KICKR v4 (2018), CORE, or SNAP. This should be completed every 2 weeks on a KICKR or CORE and before every workout on a SNAP. Later models of KICKR (starting with V5 [2020]), and MOVE no longer require spindowns as calibration is now calculated continuously as you ride. Find more info in Auto Spindown Calibration (KICKR v5 [2020]+ and MOVE)


To perform a spindown:

  1. Plug in your KICKR, CORE, or SNAP and pair it to the ELEMNT, BOLT, or ROAM.
  2. Press the button on the left side of the ELEMNT to access the Settings / Sensors menu.
  3. Use the bottom button on the right side of the ELEMNT to scroll down to your paired smart trainer.
  4. Press the bottom 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 successful.
