Wahoo announces KICKR Direct Connect Accessory for hardwired trainer connections

The virtual cycling world just got a bit faster with the announcement of a hardwired accessory that links Wahoo Kickr trainers directly into a wifi network.

“Wahoo is pleased to announce its new Kickr Direct Connect accessory, designed to ensure that all riders can complete virtual rides and races without worrying about signal loss. KICKR Direct Connect is the world’s only device that allows riders to create a wired connection between their modern indoor ride simulator and their home network,” the company announced in press release.

Wahoo KICKR Product Manager Tyler Harris highlighted who this product is best suited for:

“While a wireless connection works very well for most riders, those who have connectivity challenges, or those who simply cannot risk a dropout during an important race or workout will be able to ride with increased confidence and reliability by using KICKR Direct Connect.”
