Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful product The adapter did the job. Just check after riding a bit to make sure it’s tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As described If you need to convert your old Kickr to thru-axle this is pretty much mandatory and delivers as promised. Easy set up and several extra fittings for whatever shape non-threaded-side fitting your frame has. Took about 2 minutes to set up. Works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working great! Purchased my Kickr when I didn't have or need to support 12x142 but now that my new Mtn and Gravel Bike are 12x142 am really glad I can put them on the trainer!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works well I bought this 12x142 thru axle adaptor for my 1st generation KICKR so I could use me new bike that has thru axles and disc brakes. (2017 Venge ViAS Pro Disc) I simply watched the video regarding replacement of the quick release axle with the thru axle adaptor, super simple and quick to complete and has worked flawlessly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit for the Wahoo Snap trainer I received a Wahoo Snap for Christmas, turns out I needed a Thru Axle adapter because my Cyclops didn't work. The Wahoo Thru Axle is a perfect fit. One issue is depending on your bike it might get close to the frame. I have a 2017 BMC Roadmachine 02 carbon bike and I had to put a small spacer in the left side of the trainer so that it gave some clearance from my frame. Otherwise it is a perfect fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit! I've had this for about 3 weeks now and I ride the trainer about 4-5 time a week (45 minutes - 1 hour 30 minutes) and have had no issues with it. I'm using it on the Wahoo Kickr and it's a perfect fit! Easy to use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just for mountain bikes My latest road bike - Specialized Ruby - has a thru axle (much to my surprise). I didn't realize that it wouldn't work with the Kickr as is. Discovered this adapter and it works like a charm. There are directions that come with it that are so-so, but if I can figure it out, anyone can. After a little practice, I can switch out my tri bike and my road bike that use different skewers on the Kickr in less than a minute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yet another great Wahoo product "If you want to race your MTB fast, you have to train on it" is what a friend told me. Training on your road bike and racing your MTB only get's you so far. This adapter fit perfectly on my Specialized Epic WC and is up to the Hight-standard of Wahoo products that people have come to expect. Can't be happier with my new MTB Kickr setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with my wife's Ruby Disc and my Venge We use the kickr with three main bikes - my Venge rim brake bike (130mm, QR), my wife's Ruby Disc (142mm, 12mm thru axle), and my Venge ViAS Disc (142mm, 12mm thru axle. This adapter kit works great and comes with all the small parts for whatever config you have. I haven't tried it yet on a 135mm disc bike but judging from the length of the skewer it comes it, it'll just be long and stick out the end. Great on Specialized bikes anyway!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adapter worked for me! I bought this a few weeks ago after purchasing a new Giant TCR Advanced 2017 road bike. Although I was informed at the time of purchase that this bike has a thru axle, it didn't occur to me until I arrived home that this axle wouldn't work with my KICKR. I called the bike shop and, after some investigation, they said I should be able to get an adapter. So I went on the website and sure enough I found this adapter and a video that clearly showed how to install it. What a relief when it arrived and after installation I was able to put my new bicycle on my very expensive but extremely effective KICKR trainer. Thanks wahoo!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with road bikes with solid axles too! My wife has a Merckx Mourenx69, which has a 142mm solid axle with disc brakes. This kit works perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great With Through Axel Bought this for my Trek Domane 4.3 disc road bike. Given that this bike has disc brakes and through-Axel....I needed an adapter. Super easy installation, but needed product instructions emailed to me as they cannot be found on the website. Customer service provided this in a very timely manner. Works perfectly once installed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution to riding cross bike on Kickr! My racing bike was in the shop and I needed a way to ride my Focus CX bike (with a through axel) on the Kickr. Wahoo was not optimistic it would work, but said they would take it back if it didn't. It worked like a charm! I had to watch the video a few times to understand how it hooks up - it could probably be a little clearer, but the product does what it needs to do. I leave everything on my CX bike and now mostly ride that on the kickr for convenience sake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well I had to buy a spacer as my Kicker doesn't have a threaded axle spacer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well after fixing it.... Bought this for my 2018 Giant Propel Advanced Pro Disc. Had to file down the non-drive side spacer about 3mm to get rid of side-to-side play on the non-drive side dropout. Now it works just fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but needed adapting This adapter works well, but it has a quirk. There's a threaded washer that threads on to the drive side axle of the Kickr. Unfortunately, the axle still sticks out a couple of millimeters and the bike frame wouldn't go past that protrusion. I had to add an extra plain washer behind the threaded washer, so that the threaded washer is flush and the frame slides right on. Maybe I'm doing something wrong or my bike is odd, but I'm not seeing it. After my adjustment, the adapter works great. The bike is nice and solid. It's also a bit pricey for my liking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product, reasonable price, almost fits I like the axle and it lets me use my Kickr on my disc bike. However, the adapter on the Kickr side (the part that is stamped 142 in the video) was a mm or two wider than the dropouts on my frame (Scott Solace 15 disc). After calling support, they suggested filing it down as no one else had the problem. 2 minutes later with a bench grinder and it fit perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it's supposed to do... This review is for the KICKR 142x12 Mountain Bike Adapter. Works like it is supposed to - replacing the QR skewer with a thru-axle adapter. Allows me to use my MTB on the trainer instead of my road bike. Probably the most helpful thing Kickr has is the YouTube setup video. Far more useful than the instructions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quick-release shaft too long... It was fairly easy to use and the adapters all worked, but the threading on the quick-release wasn't long enough so that I couldn't tighten it fully. I took the original right side from the quick release and drilled it out to use as a spacer on the left side, and that worked, but the shaft really should have more threading on it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Skewers and fiddly bits for 2018 kikr My kikr is great and setting it up with my road bike wasn’t too hard. Switching to a mountain bike was impossible however. I tried all sorts of wahoo videos and help emails and bought a number of different doohickeys from wahoo. None worked. Some were doohickeys I already had. Finally some guy explained I would need an entirely different cassette on the kikr if I wanted to use my mtn bike. So good for road bike. Probably won’t work for your mtn bike. Lots and lots of confusing fiddly bits

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing - didn't work Although the adapters that ship with this kit fit into the non-drive side of my Wahoo Kickr, the end that attaches to the threaded, drive-side, end of the skewer simply would not fit on my 2020 Trek Domane SL. The bike runs a 12x142 rear thru axle, but the drive side adapter would only fit into the threads when forced, even then only going maybe 3mm into the thru axle opening. So . . . if you're looking for this item to work on a 2020 Trek Domane SL it may not.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job but does not fit perfectly Worked on my Canyon Aeroad CF SLX disc and a whaoo kicker smart trainer (2013 I think) but the radius of the piece going into the dropout of drivetrain side is a bit smaller than the frame so it does wiggle a little bit. Overall it works fine but it's expensive for what it is...
Date published: 2018-11-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked... but I had to make it work I guess for some bikes the adapters don't fit correctly and you'll have to sand it down a few millimeters to have your bike snug on the brake side. If you don't the bike will not be stable enough to use on the trainer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can be made to work with Specialized Diverge The Specialized Diverge has 12x135 thru-axle system but parts from this can be used to make it work... but do note this is not supported by Wahoo in any way. You only need to use three small parts in the kit (the cassette spacer, the thru-axle bushing and the QR end-cap) so arguably that turns the conversion kit into a very pricy affair for a lot of trinkets you have no use for. Also the tapered thru-axle bushing does not have

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not for everything End caps for left drop out are too wide for my scott addict disc, the bike can't be secured properly.
