How/When do I Perform a Spindown Calibration on the KICKR SNAP?

Before performing the spindown, you will need to make sure you bike is set up correctly. Please see this instructions page for details.

The KICKR SNAP can be calibrated with the Wahoo Fitness app as described below, though other apps like Zwift, Trainer Road, and Kinomap also support this feature - consult the app developer for further help with spindowns in third-party apps.

 

 

PERFORMING A SPINDOWN/CALIBRATION (iOS)

  1. Plug in your KICKR SNAP Power Trainer if you haven't already
  2. Ensure Bluetooth® is turned on and open the Wahoo Fitness iOS App
  3. Select “Sensors” in the bottom left corner
  4. Select the KICKR SNAP from the list of saved sensors, then “Spindown”
  5. Select “Perform Spindown” and follow the instructions in the app

If this is your first time using the KICKR SNAP, you may be prompted to perform a Factory (or Advanced) Spindown, which is required for accurate calibration and performance. A normal spindown is recommended for the KICKR SNAP before every ride. For more information on our app, see Wahoo Fitness iOS App Instructions.

 

PERFORMING A SPINDOWN/CALIBRATION (ANDROID)

  2. Ensure Bluetooth® and location services are turned on and open the Wahoo Fitness Android App.
  3. Select the "Sensors" button from the Home Screen to find your KICKR SNAP.
  4. If already saved, select the KICKR SNAP shown. Otherwise tap the + to search for it.
  5. Once your KICKR SNAP is selected, find the "Spindown" button on the "Device details" page.

FOR BEST RESULTS

  • Ensure the roller adjustment knob is turned 2 complete (360º) rotations once it contacts the tire
  • Check tire pressure before each ride to match the pressure recommended on the tire sidewall
  • Perform a warmup and spindown before every ride
  • Always use a slick (non-knobby) tire with the KICKR SNAP as knobs generate excessive noise and vibration
  • Use tires with a hard compound or a dedicated trainer tire to decrease wear and extend tread life
  • Tighten the roller one quarter turn (90º) if your tire consistently slips when pedaling
