Looking to escape those dark mornings, cold commutes and busy roads with a turbo trainer? Wahoo are experts when it comes to producing pro-level quality training devices for some of the world’s best teams and riders, including Chris Froome and Team Sky.

Team Sky


The Wahoo KICKR Power Turbo Trainer is the company’s top of the range device, with a large freewheel offering an impressive ride feel, bringing the sensations of riding on the road right to your living room or pain cave.

Compatible with a wide range of third-party apps, the KICKR Power can be used with Zwift, Trainer Road, Strava and a range of other online training platforms. This ensures every aspect of your ride is recorded, allowing you analyse your data, share it with friends or even your coach.

Being both ANT+ and Bluetooth ready, the trainer can be paired with either your Wahoo ELEMNT GPS Computer or other devices.

Smooth yet silent, the KICKR Turbo Trainer creates a mere 61 decibels, making it one of the quietest turbo trainers on the market. The team at Wahoo have achieved this by redesigning the gearing and belt system to reduce friction and vibration.

Team Sky demand only the best when it comes to equipment and reliability is of utmost importance when the team warm up and cool down at the Tour de France and at other major races throughout the year.

Whether you’re a Chris Froome warming up for a time trial or you’re training for an upcoming sportive, the robust steel construction ensures that however many watts you crank out, the trainer can, day in day out, withstand the abuse.

Even the most powerful sprinters are accommodated, with the turbo trainer providing resistance of over 2000 watts. Push your limits not the trainer’s. The KICKR’s power measurement system is super reliable, with a +/-2% accuracy, allowing you to train specifically for your goals, safe in the knowledge you are riding within your zones.

Compact and foldable, the KICKR is also incredibly stable, ensuring it won’t wobble even when riding out of the saddle. Its compact size means it can be stored in the boot of a car or out of the way at home when not in use.

The Wahoo KICKR can be easily adjusted to suit 24” to 29” wheels, making it ideal for both road and mountain bikes.
