Wahoo launches new Kickr Core turbo trainer and Headwind smart fan

Joe Robinson 8 Jul 2018 Kickr Core and Kickr Headwind add to Wahoo's expanding 'ecosystem' of indoor training products Wahoo has expanded its 'ecosystem' of indoor training equipment with the introduction of an updated Kickr turbo trainer, plus the new Kickr Core and Kickr Headwind, a connected smart fan that gives the realistic feel of riding on the road. Starting with the new Kickr Core, the updated turbo trainer has addressed the constant issue of noise while indoor training by reducing sound amplification and pitch to create what it claims is 'a virtually silent trainer'. This has created a hushed hum from the turbo which Wahoo believes is perfect for those in shared living arrangements or who train at night. The Kickr Core has also received an updated flywheel which is heavier. Alongside accurate power reading to 2,200w and real-time reactiveness from first and third party apps, the weighty flywheel ...

Exclusive: Rotor introduces 13-speed hydraulic groupset for all disciplines

Exclusive: Rotor introduces 13-speed hydraulic groupset for all disciplines

The groupset arms race takes an interesting turn today with the release of Rotor’s 1x13, 13-speed hydraulic groupset that is adaptable for road, mountain, cyclocross and gravel riding. The highly modular drivetrain is near production and BikeRadar is pleased to share the worldwide exclusive first look at this fascinating groupset. Rotor's latest cranks and hubs tested, plus more time with the UNO hydraulic groupset Road bike groupsets: everything you need to know For the sake of clarity, please note that the groupset is simply called ‘1x13’ — no catchy names here! So why go 13-speed? The Rotor 1x13 groupset is the first 13-speed production groupset. We seem to have only just landed in the 12-speed era, so adding yet another cog will no doubt confuse some, but there’s sound logic behind the decision; although a 2x11 groupset has 22 theoretical ratios, the effective number of usable combinations is usually only ...

Red Bull challenges cyclists to ride 1 million miles on Strava this July

Joe Robinson 26 Jun 2018 Ditch public transport or your car for the month of July and help Red Bull reach its 1 million mile target Current weather in the UK is hitting the dizzy heights of 28 degrees. That means that your commute on the bus, tube or train is becoming even more uncomfortable than usual. The close proximity, lack of air conditioning and never ending delays make the journey to and from work worse than work itself. So with this in mind energy drink giant Red Bull is challenging commuters to ditch the rattling tube carriages and stuffy buses for your bike in the month of July to collectively ride one million miles in one month on Strava , as the Red Bull Million Mile Commute returns for another year.
