Wahoo Kickr 5 RACE MODE Update // Race Mode Event Test Results!

Wahoo have fast-tracked ‘Race Mode’ to the Kickr 5 with a firmware update that also brings ERG Easy Start to this smart trainer. Accessing Race Mode on the Kickr 5 will require the Direct Connect adapter and an Ethernet connection. This video also covers SEVEN race events on Zwift comparing Direct Connect Race Mode with both ANT+ and Bluetooth connections (both 1Hz) to the same Kickr 5 trainer. Race Mode wins 6/7 of these events!
