KICKR ROLLR is designed to be easy to use with the majority of both 700C road bikes and road tires, without the need for trainer-specific tires. KICKR ROLLR's adjustable wheelbase accommodates bike wheelbases (distance between center of front and rear wheel) from 950mm - 1100mm.
While KICKR ROLLR is also fully compatible with trainer tires, these are not required - there is no need to use a trainer tire as ROLLR was designed to easily transfer your bike between the road and a home training studio.
Can I use my Mountain, Cross, or Gravel bike with ROLLR? What Tire Should I use?
Yes, you can use a mountain or cross bike with ROLLR, but you may want to use a smoother tire as bumpy/knobby tires increase wear and make for a turbulent ride. The smoother the tire, the better.
Additionally, be aware that most modern mountain bikes have a longer wheelbase than is compatible with KICKR ROLLR (950mm - 1100mm).
Disclaimer: Because of the wide variety of bicycle makes and models, it is not possible for Wahoo to guarantee KICKR ROLLR compatibility with all bicycles matching these parameters. To fully ensure compatibility, we recommend visiting a local Wahoo retailer to test your bicycle’s fit before purchasing. Please take note of the “Known Incompatible Bikes” listed below. While Wahoo has conducted tests on KICKR safety and compatibility with certain bikes, the end user is ultimately responsible for ensuring that their bike frame is compatible with the KICKR trainers such that damage to the bike frame does not result from using KICKR trainers.
Wahoo Fitness strongly discourages altering trainers to fit bikes deviating from the following specifications including (but not limited to) grinding-down components, adding washers, or improperly reversing spacers as these may void your warranty and increase inherent risk. Wahoo Fitness is not liable for any damage or injury related to improper installation, modification, or misuse of hardware.
