As the leaves take on the bright hues of autumn and begin to fall, shorter days and plummeting temperatures force you to finally concede that it's time to outfit the indoor cycling haven. Give those trainer doldrums a kick and boost your winter training routine with the Wahoo KICKR SNAP PowerTrainer. When you're stuck indoors and out of the snow, it does its best to make you feel like you're riding outside with options to create specific, power based workouts for effective training sessions.

But the KICKR SNAP isn't trying to be the lightest or the most portable.

Use the KICKR SNAP for its accuracy and for quality indoor workouts that will maintain form carried from summer into late autumn, build winter base miles, and have you ready to get back outside for the races of early sprin...
