Automatic Spin Down:
The KICKR V5’s automatic calibration removes the needs for the regular spin down functionality, instead, it continuously calibrates the KICKR throughout a ride so that your power accuracy is always correct. How does this work? - The Wahoo KICKR V5 continuously monitors performance and detects coasting. When the KICKR coasts, it’s able to measure the drag in the system which allows it to recalibrate.
Do I still need to do a regular spin down? - No, A regular spin down is no longer needed because the automatic calibration is always on.
What is the power accuracy of the new KICKR V5? - The new KICKR achieves a better power accuracy of 1% because of the addition of the new automatic calibration feature.
The outer feet are customizable and are very easy to customize. With the 3 different size caps for the outrigger feet, you simply unthread the feet from the KICKR, remove the lock ring, remove the bolt and previously installed cap and then replace it with the different cap of your choice (Stiff caps, middle caps (installed by default), easy caps). Plus, they allow for 1 up to 5 degrees of side-to-side movement and are fully compatible with the CLIMB (sold separately) system. And, they still provide the same side-to-side motion with or without the CLIMB connected to your bike.
