Indoor trainers are a really efficient use of time and great for getting quality bike sessions in. But with so many on the market these days, finding the right one for you can be a bit of a minefield. So I'm going to help you to choose an indoor trainer. Subscribe to GTN: 🤍gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: 🤍gtn.io/6B In association with Wahoo. Magnetic, direct-drive, fluid, air, smart trainers; where on earth do you start? Well there are so many more options available for indoor trainers compared to when I first started cycling, and to demonstrate this Wahoo have kindly stepped in. They've loaned us a few of their products that we can run through in the same range that is used by Ironman world champion and Olympic Games gold medalist Jan Frodeno, and even Team SKY. This is the KICKR SNAP from Wahoo. It's Wahoo's more affordable trainer; it's another wheel-on design, meaning it's fixed and mounted in the same way as the previous trainers, but this is a smart trainer. This means that you can connect the trainer to your bike computer, your smartphone, your tablet, or even your computer via Bluetooth Smart or ANT+, so you can monitor your training as you go, and actually in some cases you can increase the intensity on these as well. I'm currently using the Wahoo ELEMNT BOLT bike computer but you can use other bike computers, and if you don't have a bike computer you can actually use the Wahoo Fitness app to capture the data. But the beauty of the smart trainer, and actually a really popular option, is to connect it to something like Zwift or Trainer Road to give you that kind of outdoor, real feel. The Wahoo KICKR: we're taking it up a level here now; this is Wahoo's ultimate indoor smart trainer. This is in fact a direct-drive trainer, and that means that we have to remove the rear wheel, and then we place the dropouts of the bike onto the axle of the trainer, which also has a pre-mounted cassette. Now that just saves us all that effort of having to use a turbo tyre, or even having to switch a wheel out with a turbo tyre on. It is a relatively heavy device: it comes in at around 21kgs. As with all smart trainers really, a really cool setting with this smart trainer is the ERG mode. So say you want to sit at a set power or you're trying to follow an intervals session, then you can just do that: set it, the turbo does the rest for you regardless of the terrain or your cadence. Something even cooler - the Wahoo KICKR CLIMB. Now we've been talking about indoor riding feeling realistic, but how about your bike actually moving with the simulated terrain? The forks lock into the KICKR CLIMB, so the bike will literally tilt upwards or downwards with ascents or descents. In fact, you can range from ascents of 20% all the way back down to descents of 10%.

What's the one for apartments ? I need a noise free one
why watch this video when you cant even afford one
Hi there! I just got my Kickr Snap, but when I tried using it with my bike (a Cube Axial WS with disc brakes) I could never fit in the quick release skewer, it seems to be too short. Do you know what can I do? Is there any different skewer I can use?
Thanks for your help!
i love you GTN
I have a magnetic spin bike. My problem arises after pairing my Wahoo with Zwift.
Not sure if you use Zwift, but let me ask anyways: During the Zwift setup, when you get to the page where they ask to "select your trainer," there is no option for the metal plated flywheel bikes like mine. What does one do/select then?
How do you go from 40 pound over straight to 50 pound one?
what happened to the roller trainers? too hard to ride?? get the roller trainer and learn how to ride in a straight line all the time.
Re-riding the course you actually did is pretty darn cool I have to say
Thanks for this awesome video. I have the wahoo kicker snap, and I have a question. When I'm doing intervals, sometimes when I shift back down for the recovery portion I lose any tension and any power readings for about 30-50 seconds until it kicks back in. That's okay if I've got a recovery period of more than 30 seconds, but with a lot of the interval workouts, it's more likely that I get a 15 or 20 second recovery, so often I just end up staying in the higher gear for that period and pedaling a little slower. Does that mean that I've set up my trainer incorrectly, or is that just par for the course. Thank you.
it would be really great if you could get your sponsors such as wahoo and ON to provide you with promo codes in order to get a product discount. eg i just ended up forking out another 135 quid for a pair of cloudflyers because i have 8 marathons over the next 3 weeks. A code like GTNON to give me 20% off would have helped both me and the company as it would get more people trying their products, leading to a greater fanbase and ultimately greater profits. Many youtube channels do this.
so, could you have a word please because we all want good gear, but very few of us can afford it or have sponsors to pay for us.
Can’t beat Elite, got a cheap fluid turbo & fitted BT sensor. Gives power cadence & speed readings, been good for rehab after TKR op
What about rollers??
Also wondering about rollers?
Got a new house with a gym, looking for a good one!
Why does it cost so much just to ride your bike indoors :(?
When is the Climb going to be available?
Which is the quietest trainer
Picked up a wahoo kicker last night. Slaying it baby!
