Wahoo KICKR and Team Sky smallTeam Sky, winner of the 2012 and 2013 Tour de France, has selected Wahoo Fitness as its official supplier of turbo trainers, and will be using the Wahoo KICKR during the racing season.

Every rider will get their own KICKR for use during the season where it will be used for pre-race warm up and post-race warm down. Team Sky members will also get a KICKR for ‘at home’ training.

Using Bluetooth 4.0 and ANT+ technology, the KICKR Power Trainer connects to smartphones and tablets, allowing full resistance control during your training session. While pedalling, users can increase or decrease resistance, structure interval workouts or even simulate real world bike courses all from their smartphone.

Resistance adjustments are instant, making it easy to replicate everything from a flat or rolling hill course, to the coast down a hill after a hard climb.

With a wheel off design and super flywheel, the iPhone connected bike trainer is engineered to produce an ultra-realistic road feel, equivalent to the inertia of an actual rider on the road. A direct power measurement at the hub provides consistent and lab accurate power readings for every mile.

Wahoo has agreed to provide us with a KICKR, so expect a review soon.
