What is the Wahoo KICKR ROLLR?
The KICKR ROLLR takes the traditional roller design, which since the golden days of cycling has been the mainstay of indoor training and merges this with the performance advantages of a smart trainer.
Designed to accommodate a wide range of bike frames and tyre sizes via its quick-release adjustable wheelbase clamp the KICKR ROLLR is the ideal piece of equipment to have in your pain cave allowing you to quickly transition from indoor to outdoor riding as well as allowing multiple bikes to be used on the same trainer.
“KICKR ROLLR gives endurance athletes a convenient, versatile, and feature-packed option to train indoors or get ready for an event. The ability to easily take your bike on and off the trainer while enjoying the singular ride feel of rollers really sets KICKR ROLLR apart.”Tyler Harris – Wahoo KICKR Product Manager
