Features

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! *Exact grade changes dependent on bicycle size, wheel size and trainer type.
Works with Wahoo KICKR Smart Trainers
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!
Locked and Unlocked 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 The Sufferfest and Zwift, 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. Visit our FAQs, for a full list of compatible apps.
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.
Quick release and thru-axle bike compatibility
In addition to standard quick release hubs KICKR CLIMB also supports 12x100, 15x100, and 15x110 thru axle hubs.

KICKR CLIMB Indoor Grade Simulator is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be better! I invested in my Kickr and Climb this past November. Having only trained on rollers and a dumb trainer I knew this was going to be an adjustment. Having never played video games the worst part of my new toys was getting used to watching a video of myself riding (I felt very nauseated until I got a few more rides in and acclimated). The combination of the Kickr and the Climb have transformed my workouts and early year season for the better. In the past I would skip or put off rides indoors because they bored me so much. No more. I'm engaged and challenged throughout. Good work Wahoo, this was no easy feat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes riding more realistic and less boring I bought this at same time as kickr so didn't ride one without the other. However, I will still say that this makes it a lot more realistic and comfortable since you don't stay in one position. It reacts pretty fast and when you hit a large grade change, you know it... Very stable and no concerns standing up and getting at it. Very pleased and wouldn't want to ride without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply works as advertised! I have been using this unit for a little over a month and it works as advertised. This is as real as it gets indoors! Climbing feels natural in and out of the seat! Little expensive but then again there is nothing else on the market that can compare to the level of realism when combined with APP's like Swift using your own bike!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adds an element of realism I was waiting to write a review of this until I'd completed one Alpe du Zwift ride. In a word — excellent. I have had a Kickr since May and while it's great, climbing out of the saddle is a bit awkward, and having a bike always level underneath is a bit hard on your body. The Climb enables to me to hit hills using different muscle groups than I would normally, which has been great. Pretty much all the climbs I've done since I got it I've hit PRs. Yes, as some have said, there's a slight delay in response when the incline changes (I attribute this to the fact that it's communicating with the trainer and not the app), but nothing like the 2 seconds some have said. Some slight noise to get used to as well. You won't really notice it when the grade changes slightly — it takes a 3% change to really notice it. But when you do something like come out of the London tubes it really grabs your attention. I've only done four rides with it but can already tell the difference. It's almost enough to make one look forward to winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waiting a year and it is great! Wonderful piece of equipment and I think this is a great step for Wahoo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A more realistic climbing experience I trained indoors on zwift last season during the frozen winter in Sweden. My fitness is good and i wanted to specifically target climbing cols in preparation for the rides i would undertake in the summer. This went great and my fitness/power improved HOWEVER when i got to the real cols i did struggle with the specific muscle and position demands REAL climbing puts on you and struggled to reproduce the kind of numbers i could put out in the pain cave. The Kickr climb appears to offer me that missing piece of the jigsaw as i can really feel the glutes , quads and calves working on the ascents up Alpe du Zwift in a way that is much closer to real life. If you are serious about training for a ride in the mountains this summer i would say the Kickr is pretty much indespensable in your training programme.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the investment! After two months of use here is what I found: 1. Setup is easy and unit performed flawlessly from the beginning. 2. No troubles of any kind during use. 3. Does add a notable change in the realism of rides especially when using visual training rides such as FulGaz. 4. Will make the long season of off road training (northern US) much more interesting than the old turbo trainer days. 5. Worth the investment IMHO. Could I live without it? Yes, but don’t be the one who tries to take it away!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adds that extra layer of training The Kickr bike trainer alone can certainly simulate hill climbs really well but, adding the Climb turned it up a notch. I like that I can manually control the incline as well. Some of those hills in Zwift are INSANE for me right now. It’s nice to be able to dial it back a bit. Loving my Climb.
