We've told you about it, now we've got to use it... Wahoo Fitness CEO Chip Hawkins talks us through the new Kickr Climb, live from Eurobike

The Kickr Climb has certainly captured the imagination of visitors to this year's Eurobike show, and we were lucky enough to get a quick demo with the CEO of Wahoo Fitness, Chip Hawkins. 

Wahoo's new Kickr Climb simulates hills for indoor training

From this brief demo I was impressed with how realistic it felt, if not a bit too realistic when the gradient kicked up to 20% and Chip left me hangin' for longer than I'd have liked! 

The Kickr Cimb will retail at £449.99 and is available from this Autumn. 

 

 

After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since.  He joined road.cc in 2017, having previously worked for 220 Triathlon magazine. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.

Is this really the first time that this has been done? It's so obvious. Hmm, next iteration will wobble from side to side when you honk?
