How to Update Firmware on KICKR, BIKE, CORE, SNAP, and ROLLR


  • Bluetooth® enabled phone or tablet on iOS 16 or Android 10 or newer
  • Your device actively connected to the internet over Wi-Fi
  • The Wahoo app for iOS or Android
  • A trainer that is not connected to any additional apps or devices (ensure previously connected devices are off/disabled and no other apps are running in the background)

Update Steps

  1. Ensure
    • Bluetooth is enabled in your phone or tablet's device settings
    • no other devices are paired to your phone or tablet's Bluetooth, including smart watches and headphones
    • your trainer is plugged in and powered on
    • your device is within 5 feet of the trainer
  2. Open the Wahoo app.
  3. Navigate to the Devices tab.
  4. Select your trainer or add it if you have yet to pair your trainer.  Upon establishing a connection with your KICKR, the Wahoo  app will determine if your trainer's firmware is out of date. If an update is available, the app will display a notice - Update Available
  5. Select Update firmware
