What Accessories Do I Need to Use the KICKR?

The accessories required for the KICKR depend on use. To start, the KICKR must be plugged in to provide resistance so you'll at least need access to an electrical outlet.

If you're uninterested in speed or power data and just want resistance alone, you'll only need:

  1. A compatible bicycle (see: compatible bikes)
To get power and speed readings from the KICKR, you'll need:
  1. A compatible bicycle (see: compatible bikes)
  2. A compatible iOS or Android Bluetooth enabled device to read data
For the ultimate experience (full data monitoring and resistance control) you'll need the following:
  1. A compatible bicycle (see: compatible bikes)
  2. A device to control the KICKR. These devices include:
    • iPhone 4s, 5, 5s, 5c, 6, 6 Plus, & 7 (older iPhone devices are also compatible with a Wahoo Key)
    • iPad 3 and newer
    • iPod 5th Gen and newer
    • Mac Computer with built in Bluetooth 4.0
    • Computer with ANT+ USB dongle (compatibility varies by software platform; check individual websites for compatibility)
    • Android device on 4.4 KitKat or newer with Bluetooth (see: compatible devices)
  3. An RPM/Cadence sensor (included with KICKR, or the RPM or BLUE SC).
  4. A heart rate sensor like our TICKR X.
Note: the KICKR can be controlled with ANT+ or Bluetooth devices (KICKR firmware version 1.1.2 and newer) but can only be updated via Bluetooth.
