How to Update Firmware on KICKR CLIMB

Firmware updates for KICKR CLIMB have been temporarily disabled.

Please note that this does not affect the functionality of your KICKR CLIMB; it continues to operate as expected. Our team is actively addressing this matter, and we appreciate your patience as we work to resolve.

The KICKR CLIMB can only be updated from iOS and Android devices.


  • 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 and CLIMB are plugged in and powered on
    • your device is within 5 feet of the trainer

  2. Open the Wahoo app.

  3. Open the My Sensors drawer at the bottom of the Home tab.

  4. Select your trainer (KICKR, MOVE, CORE, or SNAP) or add it if you have yet to pair your trainer. 

    The CLIMB is paired to your trainer, and so the CLIMB details are visible on your trainer's sensor details page.

    Upon establishing a connection with your trainer, the Wahoo app will determine if your trainer or CLIMB's firmware is out of date. If an update is available, the app will display a notice - Update Available.

  5. Select Update firmware under the KICKR CLIMB section of your trainer's (KICKR, MOVE, CORE, or SNAP) sensor details page. If there is an Update firmware button above this section, immediately below your trainer model name, this means there is also a firmware update available for your trainer.

  6. The app will list the firmware version update available. Select Install update and leave your device near the trainer/CLIMB until the update is complete.

  7. Once the update is finished, you're prompted to toggle Bluetooth® off and back on in the iOS/Android Settings app to refresh the connection. We also recommend you restart your trainer and CLIMB by unplugging them for 30 seconds after an update.

Your CLIMB is now on the latest firmware and ready to ride!
