More benefits of the Wahoo KICKR V5

Wahoo KickR Technology has been on the market for some time now, but it was not until recently that they introduced a more refined version of their KickR paddle called the Wahoo KickR V5. With the new V5 the Wahoo KickR has gained a couple of new features to its already unbeatable list of benefits. Wahoo has certainly given the KickR V5 little but very helpful upgrades. The new award-winning Wahoo KickR V5 is by far the smoothest improvement of the KickR range and would be the most precise KickR yet, being nearly double the accuracy compared to the last range.
