Wahoo Kickr Rollr review: a smart trainer/roller hybrid for indoor training

There’s something deeply satisfying about walking in to a room and seeing a prized road bike fully assembled and ready to ride.  (image credit: Wahoo)
Wahoo’s latest Kickr Rollr allows for exactly this scenario - a hybrid between a traditional set of rollers and a modern smart trainer. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
However, with a lack of built-in power meter, the system falls behind some of its "wheel-on" smart trainer rivals. (image credit: Wahoo)
The system itself isn’t overly massive and it comes pretty much ready-assembled. Setting up is a cinch. (image credit: The Gear Loop)

If only it were slightly quieter, it could take the crown as one of the best and most natural feeling indoor trainers out there. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Unfortunately, it’s not as gloriously simple as a set of "dumb" rollers, nor is it as good as the latest batch of smart trainers. Read more by clicking through. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
