With the indoor training season only a few months away, Wahoo dropped the Wahoo KICKR Snap price from $599.99 to $499.99. The KICKR Snap is Wahoo’s only wheel-on smart trainer. These type of trainers can be more convenient to some since you don’t have to remove the rear wheel
With the increasing popularity, accuracy, and improvements we’ve seen with direct drive trainers in the past two years, wheel-on trainers have taken a back seat. Wahoo hasn’t updated the KICKR Snap since 2017 and we haven’t seen much development in the wheel-on smart bike trainer segment in 2018. I don’t expect to see much development this year either.
This lower price gives Wahoo the ability to better compete with the CycleOps M2 which has been selling for $500 or even lower if you keep your eyes open for a good sale.
The KICKR Snap features a 10.5 lbs flywheel, accuracy within +/-3%, and can simulate up to 12% slope. It supports ANT+ and Smart Bluetooth communication protocols making it compatible with Zwift, TrainerRoad and almost every indoor cycling app available in the market.
