What Do I Need to Know About KICKR v5+ Auto Spindown?

Automatic Calibration

  • Why is this necessary?
    • The automatic calibration removes the needs for  the regular spindown functionality, instead it continuously calibrates the KICKR throughout a ride so that your power accuracy is always correct.
  • How does this work?
    • We're continuously monitoring the KICKR and detecting coasting. When the KICKR coasts we are able to measure the drag in the system which allows us to recalibrate.
  • Do I still need to do a regular spindown?
    • No - a regular spindown is no longer needed because the automatic calibration is always on.
