BEST FOR: PERFORMANCE-TRACKING JUNKIES
Wahoo Fitness kicks it up a gear with this premium indoor trainer. The Kickr’s wheel-off system connects directly to your bike’s drivetrain for more realistic road feel—the best of the three here. Unlike similar setups, resistance is electromagnetic (quieter than noisy fan-based units) and wirelessly controlled (via Bluetooth) from an iPhone. The Kickr is compatible with numerous third-party apps, including our favorite, Kinomap Trainer, which weds GPS and Google Maps data with crowdsourced video for total training immersion.
