FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany (BRAIN) — At Eurobike, Wahoo Fitness is demonstrating a new device that raises or lowers the front end of a bike on its newest KICKR trainers to simulate climbing or descending when used with software like Zwift. The $599.99 KICKR CLIMB is designed to work only with the latest versions of Wahoo’s KICKR and KICKR Snap smart trainers.
