KICKR SNAP Indoor Trainer

Wahoo Fitness, the leader in workout apps and smartphone connected fitness devices, is pleased to announce the KICKR SNAP, a connected indoor cycling trainer that is easy to use. SNAP connects seamlessly with smartphones, tablets and computers, giving the user full control over pedaling resistance and provides a reliable power measurement so users can monitor and adjust intensity. KICKR SNAP is designed to work with training platforms like Zwift and TrainerRoad that make riding indoors more competitive, interactive, convenient, and fun. Users can choose the Wahoo Fitness app or from a number of third-party apps to ride a virtual course with friends or perform a structured, power-based workout to achieve their fitness goals.

KICKR SNAP is currently available at WahooFitness.com and will be available August 2015 at select specialty retailers for $849.99 USD. It’s available for pre-orders online in the UK and will be available in the EU and AU in September.

Using ANT+ and Bluetooth 4.0 technology, KICKR SNAP connects wirelessly to Apple, Android and Windows platforms, so you can conveniently capture all of your important ride data. Further, Wahoo’s full line of sensors and devices, like the TICKR X Workout Tracker, can easily be integrated to record heart rate and cycling cadence.

“When we introduced our first KICKR trainer in 2012, we redefined the trainer category by offering the first iPhone powered cycling trainer,” said Chip Hawkins, CEO of Wahoo Fitness. “The KICKR SNAP is a descendent of our gold standard KICKR, and provides similar features but is easier to use, so users of all abilities can stay fit year round.”

SNAP features a wheel-on design, so users can easily attach a bicycle of almost any type. Weighing 38 pounds, SNAP provides a smooth and stable ride, and is designed to keep its feet firmly planted on the floor so you can ride with confidence. Thanks to a unique flywheel, SNAP has been engineered to replicate the inertia experienced when riding outdoors, providing the highest inertia of any smart trainer on the market and unmatched wattage at any speed.
