Wahoo has today revealed an update on its well-received 2012 Kickr turbo trainer, with the launch of the Kickr Snap.

The firm has been busy designing in connectivity and today has revealed that the Snap will connect seamlessly with phones, tablets and computers, giving the rider full control over resistance and on the fly power measurements.

Wahoo's design allows the bike to roll straight on, so users can easily attach a bicycle of almost any type. Weighing 38 pounds, the unit provides a smooth and stable ride, and is designed to keep its feet firmly planted on the floor. Thanks to a unique flywheel, Snap has been engineered to replicate the inertia experienced when riding outdoors, which the manufacturer stating that it provides the highest inertia of any smart trainer currently on the market and unmatched wattage at any speed.

Zwift and TrainerRoad users will benefit, with the Snap ready to feed into these platforms. 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. 

Using ANT+ and Bluetooth 4.0 technology, the Kickr Snap will connect wirelessly to Apple, Android and Windows platforms. Furthermore, 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.

The Kickr Snap will be available in August 2015 at selected specialty retailers and uk.wahoofitness.com for £649.
