Why We Like The KICKR SNAP Smart Power Trainer

Whether you've got a spring race that's going to require some serious winter base mileage or cycling is your year-round passion, investing in the right indoor oasis is crucial to coming out stronger than ever when the snow melts. Upgrade your at-home base camp and train with Wahoo's KICKR SNAP PowerTrainer to make you feel like you're riding outside and getting the most out of your suffer sessions.

While some days certainly call for spinning the pedals mindlessly while binge watching your favorite show, if you want to get better by spring, sync up the KICKR SNAP with your favorite training app and do some work. One of the friendlier trainers on the market, the KICKR SNAP works with just about every major training app, ANT+, Bluetooth, as well as Android, Windows, or Apple devices, so you can track your workout and control the trainer from one place. Talk to it using any of the above and watch as it displays speed, distance, and power on your chosen screen without having to be hooked up to additional finicky sensors. While it puts you through a workout, enjoy the realistic sensation delivered by a 10.5lb flywheel that anchors the system, helping you feel more like you're outside even if the view out the window says otherwise.

Rear assembly defect

2 months past warranty the rear assembly was deemed defective. I hope this is a rare occurrence. Very moderate wear was put on this device. $225 to replace/fix the trainer was the best Wahoo could do for me. Something to consider before handing over your money.

Great Value in Smart Trainer

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I really really wanted a direct mount trainer but price and availability (like everything in bikes currently) when this popped up I had seen the reviews: solid foundation, heavy fly wheel for good feel, and plenty of resistance to simulate pretty good climbs. Made a huge difference to my enjoyment of virtual platforms in shifting from standard fluid trainer to this. It is actually quieter and much more like riding on the road. Getting bike in and out is a "snap" you set the non-drive side in, and flip down the lever. Crank up the rotor to engage with the tire and you are ready to go. I currently use a TACX trainer tire (this is the one pain, the need to swap tires or have a second wheel...or just wear out your rear tire...) and it works well though on step ascents even with it cranked into the tire pretty hard I can still induce some slip. That is more the tire than trainer. Handy that it has BT and ANT+ however...BT to my PC wahoo not so hip to that but it is working well now (there is a lot of variety in standards support etc) and for ANT+ rather than just putting the little USB antenna into laptop's slot, they suggest putting a long USB cable on so the antenna can be placed behind the trainer. That seems very strange to me. I have used it with Zwift, Rouvy, and Sufferfest through the PC, my Galaxy S9+ and my iPad and once you are setup it is good -- again BT issues can be the biggest challenge and on the devices in particular since apps don't fully exit sometimes one app in background can muck with the app you are in.

Use it every day

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I've had this since spring, and I use it basically every day. Really no complaints; it's easy to set up and store, syncs with my laptop easily, and I had no problems fitting it to my bike. Occasionally, when I have the resistance super high I can get a little wheel slip, but it's basically never a problem.

Best Indoor Equipment Ever..!

Fit:
True to size

The Kicker Snap is very silent and easy to use. You can pair it with your iPhone and measure all your exercise by using the Wahoo APP. The only thing that you have to be careful is the wheel adapter for 142 mm (is not included with the Kicker Snap and you have to get it apart for 70 US$).

Outstanding product in terms of performance and quality! Sturdy frame construction and exceptionally responsive in interacting with virtual apps such as Zwift, Rouvy, and Fulgaz. After riding on a CycleOps classic trainer for the past 15 years, the Kickr Snap has transformed indoor training into a fun and inspiring adventure!

Haven't ridden a trainer in years, thought it would be the same experience from years ago, but was totally surprised by the technology built into this, the Bluetooth works great, works great with zwift and climber! No more bored indoor sessions, well at least for this homebody! lol

Getting into bike shape!

This is great to get into bike shape during those colder wetter months. Been great to start riding at home and its small enough to detach the bike and hide away in storage.

This is the ticket

Familiarity:
I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

If you are looking to stay in shape throughout the whole year, but live in an area where the ability to ride during the winter is tough due to the conditions then I strongly recommend looking into this trainer. It brings indoor cycling to a whole new level.

Now there is no "off season"

I've used it several times

As the days have gotten shorter and colder, this trainer gives me no excuse not to ride. Easy to set up, super quiet, and the integration with tracking and power apps is great. So happy with this purchase. Just needs a plug that I can use to power the TV by riding.

Bang for the buck

I would be very hard pressed to come up with any criticism for the Kickr Snap. I've used it for more than 8000 miles on Zwift over about 16 months. It's awesome.

First trainer replaced, no more issues

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I ordered this trainer and initially had a bit of issues. Wahoo opted to replace it, and the replacement was also a dud. Their customer service truly went above and beyond to make me happy, and gave me several options. I decided to get a third trainer, this time I didn't experience any issues. When you purchase this trainer, I would recommend running a factory advanced spin down, which requires an iPhone (https://www.smartbiketrainers.com/advanced-spindown-calibration-wahoo-kickr-snap-4350). When I received my replacement, the power output was way off, even after several spin downs with my Android device. Overall, I'm very happy with the trainer and I would recommend the product for anyone who can't ride outside during the winter months.

A must Purchase for Serious Indoor Rides

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

As an ex. collegiate runner, I couldn't run on a treadmill for more than 30 minutes without being driven insane. The same goes for a bike. I used to hate sitting on a bike watching a tiny dumb screen with 3 tv channels I didnt want to watch. The Kickr Snap changes all of that. Syncing with Zwift and TrainerRoad is actually really fun and enjoyable. Getting a power reading from the Kickr makes it the perfect tool to get a productive bike workout in. I find myself riding my Kickr more now because I don't have to worry about traffic or wind resistance and know exactly how hard I'm working. I love it!

Among my best cycling investments.

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Being a cyclist living in CT, routinely logging 10k miles/yr, I’ve invested heavily in cycling gear. When the roads turn icy I would climb on my old trainer begrudgingly and count the minutes until the self imposed hour finally ended. The Kickr Snap (and Zwift) quickly changed all that. Not being a racer I couldn’t see spending $1200 for the Kickr, although I read and heard great things. At $600, this is a great buy for a serious cyclist. Simple to unbox and get running, the Snap really is a home run. Love it!

Setup and Interface is a Snap

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

First tried the Kicker Direct Drive. Due to having a Specialized Diverge with a very unique 135mm Thru Axle I could never get a good fit with the Kicker. Switched to the Snap which allows for a lot more variability in wheel size and skewer configuration. Both my Thru Axle and Older Skewer (10 speed hub) work well on the Snap. I do have to add several washers to the Skewer in order to get a snug fit. The first Snap I received had the same noises as mentioned below. A thud noise and vibration that made me think my crank had a problem. CC promptly replaced the unit (within the 30 day return period). The second unit has had no issues of any kind. I have a Wahoo Element that it pairs nicely to and also run Zwift. Setup and connection with both are seamless. The Snap is not perfect, in that there are nuances here and there that could be improved(ie Skewer fit). However I did extensive research on comparable units and pound for pound I still believe this is the best wheel on unit available(no I have not tried any others). Other models have much lighter fly wheels and plastic parts within the wheel mounting mechanism that are often reported as breaking easily. This unit is built rock solid. I have been using the trainer for about 6 weeks now and ride about 12 hours a week.

Have a Diverge as well. Wondered about the very issues concerning a 135 mm that you pointed out. Thanks. Very helpful.

Good First Impressions

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Purchased this unit from Competitive and was impressed with their service and speed of delivery. Also, received a follow-up call and e-mail to inquire about any additional questions and support. The trainer itself has been used for a couple of rides totaling only 50 miles at this point. I like the road feel and smoothness of how well the unit performs and not to mention its quiet enough to watch TV at a low level if desired. I had to call Wahoo initially since I was trying connect via blue tooth but was informed I needed a ANT+ dongle to use it for Zwift. So plan on making an additional investment for a dongle if you intend on using one of the on-line training sites. Otherwise, it did connect easily to my Garmin 1000 while using the speed and cadence sensors. Through your Garmin the resistance can be manually adjusted or you can run any maps that have been uploaded to your Garmin. Using a saved map will automatically adjust the resistance based on the elevation changes. You just need to make sure the elevation screen is displayed to prepare for required gear changes. The only complaint I have is in regards to the supplied skewer. For my specific bike the thread extends through the nut on the drive side to where it bottoms out in the mating tapered sleeve on the trainer (see pics). This caused the bike to wobble and the wheel eventually came loose. I plan on correcting this by either adding a washer or grinding a couple threads off the skewer.

Winter riding at its best

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I have found this trainer to be easily set up (i like the wheel on design which lets me easily swap bikes), quiet and have a realistic feel. You will need to update the firmware immediately - a bit annoying for the few of us without smart phones (i borrowed one and it took just a few minutes though). After about 6 weeks/500 miles of use i actually look foward to indoor rides in the basement. I have this paired with Zwift (itself outstanding) using a laptop/hdmi cable to a 50 inch TV. i cant imagine going back to the rollers/riding in frigid conditions which have been my winter training routine for the past 20 years!
