The latest innovation from Wahoo will literally take your indoor training to the next level! KICKR CLIMB indoor grade simulator is designed to work exclusively with the new KICKR and new SNAP and when paired, it will add physical grade changes to your indoor training. The CLIMB is compatible with Third Party Apps, so whether riding a virtual course or performing a structured workout, KICKR CLIMB blends assents and descents with resistance changes for a truly immersive indoor training experience. The world isn’t flat; now, neither is your ride!
Attention: Wahoo strongly advises against using old models of the KICKR and KICKR SNAP with the KICKR CLIMB. Due to their design the drop-out can grind against the socket of the axle when rotating up and down and therefore damage your frame.
Features of the KICKR CLIMB
Real-time grade changes
KICKR CLIMB physically adjusts your bike position to mimic real roads and mountain climbing. This allows you to naturally change position on the bike, engage climbing muscles, and improve pedaling technique to become more efficient and powerful climber.
Ascend up to 20% and decend down to -10%
KICKR CLIMB quickly raises and lowers your bike to match ascents of up to 20% grade and descents of -10% grade when paired with the new KICKR or new SNAP. Climbs are more realistic than ever when training indoors!
Works with Wahoo KICKR and KICKR SNAP
KICKR CLIMB was designed jointly with the new KICKR and new KICKR SNAP indoor bike trainers (2017 Editions) to deliver the best possible riding experience. It pairs directly to the smart trainer for a connection that allows the trainer to control the KICKR CLIMB.
Direct Proximity Pairing
Use the KICKR CLIMB’s remote to quickly and directly pair it to your KICKR or KICKR SNAP. Press the remote button and you are ready to go!
Lock and Unlock climbing modes
Unlock Mode allows the CLIMB to react to grade changes from external sources such as Zwift or TrainerRoad, or from your ELEMNT or ELEMNT BOLT GPS bike computer.
Lock Mode ensures the KICKR CLIMB will only respond to commands received from the remote.
Manual grade adjustments with remote control
KICKR CLIMB’s remote attaches to your handlebars so you can adjust the grade manually with a simple press of a button. When not in use the remote conveniently stores away in the top of the KICKR CLIMB.
3rd party app compatibility
When paired to a KICKR or KICKR SNAP the KICKR CLIMB can match grade changes from select training platforms, such as Zwift and TrainerRoad, to create a truly immersive ride experience. Whether riding a virtual course or performing a structured workout, KICKR CLIMB blends physical grade changes with resistance changes to take your indoor ride to the next level.

Wahoo ELEMNT & ELEMNT BOLT compatibility
Connect an ELEMNT or ELEMNT BOLT to your KICKR and KICKR CLIMB system to relive the ascents and descents from your favorite rides or routes while training indoors.
