This article covers using KICKR Wi-Fi (KICKR v6 and BIKE v2) features with a Windows PC or Mac.
Wi-Fi Connectivity(KICKR v6 and BIKE v2)
- What is it? a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi connection (802.11b/g/n, 20 and 40 MHz channel widths, channels 1-11) between trainer and controlling device
- Why is it valuable? Wi-Fi connectivity offers a more robust connection solution for training in your home. Wi-Fi offers lower latency and higher throughput, expanding the capabilities of what our trainer can do.
- How does it work? Through the Wahoo app or SYSTM Device Management, you can connect your trainer to your network. Once set up on a given Wi-Fi network , a KICKR reconnects automatically. See Directions below.
What apps are compatible?
- Fulgaz - All platforms
- TrainerRoad - All platforms

Note: In the case of some routers, the controlling device (computer) must be connected on the same subnet as the trainer (2.4GHz) in order for the trainer to be visible to the controlling device. This is a structural limitation of the router.
Routers identified with this limitation: Century Link C4000XG
