Why use Race Mode?
PERFECT YOUR ATTACKS
With KICKR Race Mode activated, you’ll notice a boost in responsiveness to sudden changes of pace, allowing you to control and time attacks with precision.
REALIZE EVERY WATT
KICKR Race Mode updates power upon each flywheel revolution. During a high speed sprint this can be up to 10 times per second, allowing the app to capture small peaks in wattage that aren’t reflected with slower broadcast rates.
CLOSE THE GAPS
Slower data broadcasts can create gaps in power data transmission. Over the course of a race, data gaps can cause your avatar to surge and lag, making it hard to pace and draft effectively. By relaying data faster to the app, KICKR Race Mode helps you realize the full picture of your effort, so you can be more responsive and better execute your race strategy.
How to use Race Mode
Prior to setting up your race app, open the Wahoo app, ensure the KICKR is paired and actively connected, navigate to Home > My Sensors > KICKR > Race Mode > KICKR and toggle on Race Mode. Then close the app and pair to your race app as normal.
