Wahoo has permanently dropped the retail price of the Kickr Core smart trainer by £150 / $300 recently in a reduction which sees the trainer decrease in price from £699 to £549. The trainer has also seen a similar drop in the USA, dropping from $899 to its new price of $599, and a €200 drop in Europe from €799 to €599. 

Despite being the cheapest direct drive trainer in the Wahoo lineup and about half the price of the top-flight Kickr V6, our tech team really rates the product. Our reviewer Josh Ross gave it a 4.5 star review back in 2021 in his Kickr Core review, saying he thought it was as good as anything else on the market and it does the important and key things really well.
