Product Description

The Kinetic Wireless Power Computer is designed to give you accurate power (watt) readings when you are using a Kinetic Trainer. All other functions (speed, distance, cadence, calorie burn, altimeter, etc.) are accurate both on and off the trainer. Because of this, the Kinetic Power Computer is an excellent choice for a cycling computer both on and off the trainer. The watts reading is calibrated based on a mathematical relationship between power and speed. This Kinetic Power Formula along with our proprietary software accurately estimates the cumulative effect of 16 different interactive forces. This power curve is based on the "average" ride on the "outdoor ride" using the following cubic function: P=(5.244820) * S + (0.01968)*S3. S=speed in mile per hour, P=power in Watts. Features include: -Wireless -Speed -4 Keys -Auto Start -Max. Speed -Speed bar (% of max. speed) -Average Speed -Speed Comparison -Distance 1 -Distance 2 -Odometer 1 -Odometer 2 -Odometer 1 + 2 -Ride Time 1 -Ride Time 2 -Distance Countdown -Time to arrival (arrival time/time remain) -% to arrival (Bar Display) -2nd wheel size -Time (12/24hr) -Auto Sleep -Heart Rate -Max Heart Rate -Average Heart Rate -Upper/Lower Limit w/ visible alarm -Calorie -Fat burn -Stopwatch -Auto Lap (Time/Distance) -Altimeter -Home Altitude storage -Altitude gain/loss -% gradient -Power -Max Power -Average Power -Temperature (C/F) -Max Temperature -Min Temperature -Easy Calibration -Service interval reminder -EL Backlight -Cadence -Average Cadence -Max Cadence -Low Battery Indication

They have the opportunity to improve the KKPC significantly further if they want to.
Pipps
Please understand that I don't think my issues with this bike computer in any way relate to the fluid trainer from Kurt Kinetic.
Amazon Customer
Didn't see that the cadence was wired on any advertising for it, if I would have known I would have saved myself some money.

Here is my review of the Kurt Kinetic Wireless Power Computer (`KKPC'). I have been using it almost daily for three months. While this review is slightly lengthy, I hope it will cover everything you need to know.

I originally chose this cycle computer for one obvious reason - its real-time calculation of estimated power output when used with the Kurt Kinetic Road Machine home trainer (`KKRM'). Widely regarded as the best home trainer on the market.

I like the KKPC because, of particular importance when being used out on the road, the screen clearly displays speed, heart-rate, journey time and distance all at the same time. The heart-rate monitor strap is of the budget variety with the thick plastic strap covering the width of the average chest, but as you probably already know it is unnoticeable even when worn as tightly as possible once you're out on the road and getting stuck into those hills.

I like the KKPC even more when cycling on the KKRM at home, obviously because it calculates estimated wattage which can be useful. It has been widely held, both officially and unofficially, that the KKPC's calculations are more than accurate enough for any sub-professional training purposes. The fact that KK bring this functionality for around £2k less than a new SRM crank setup is to be applauded.

It is therefore with regret that I must point out a number of major problems with the KKPC. These are issues which significantly detract from its otherwise excellent main features.

1. Of greatest significance when cycling on the home trainer is that the KKPC is unable to display both cadence and power output at the same time.

Verified Purchase
First of all this computer is not totally wireless. The cadence is wired which was very disappointing. Might as well have bought the wired one for $100 less. Didn't see that the cadence was wired on any advertising for it, if I would have known I would have saved myself some money. Plus there is not enough information on one screen so you have to switch screens to find more of your info. The only reason I bought this was for my husband who wanted the power info on it. He rates it a 3 star, I would rate is a 2 star.

I've had the Kurt Kinetic fluid trainer since about May, and then I bought the Kurt Kinetic Wireless Powercomputer a couple months ago. But I haven't used either of them until last week. When I first got it, I screwed around with it a bit just to see how it works and to see what to expect. Now that I've had five or six rides with it, I think I'm ready to write a review. So here it goes.

I gave it three stars because it provides consistent power readings for $150. It doesn't get five starts because the rest of the product is far outdone by other brands.

BLUF: The only reason I'm keeping it is because it gives me a consistent power reading, although that reading might be off a bit it is consistent. Other than that power reading, the thing works as advertised, but it's not very user friendly. It is advertised as WIRELESS, but it requires a wire for cadence.....so not exactly as advertised concerning that. I can only recommend this to someone who wants a computer that provides consistent power readings without worrying that it is a computed data point rather than measured.

Setup: Setup was easy for some parts and hard for other things. First, I got to use the magnets from my previous bike computer, which was obviously nice. There's a lot of extra wire available, which is good or bad depending on your own needs. I'm tempted to cut and splice a foot out, but I haven't made that decision yet. The biggest issue with setup is that you have to change the orientation of the mount ninety degrees...a huge annoyance but easy enough to do...what kind of company doesn't fix that in production?

Feel: The bike computer feels light and cheap plastic. I'm nervous about clicking through the buttons because it seems like they're going to break.

I received an unused one along with a Kurt Kinetic trainer (Which is EXCELLENT!), no wonder it didn't make a difference in the selling price or the seller didn't use it. First, the design is stupid. Only the speed sensor is wireless, and if you use it on the rear wheel like when you use it on a trainer, the cadence sensor is only a few inches away. There are many screens to cycle through, but you'll need the manual until you memorize the steps to get to your frequently used ones. There is no way for it to auto-cycle though each screen, which all my cheapo bike computers do.

The biggest problem is that my plasma TV interferes with it, causing incorrect readings. My speed would be 5mph after I stopped using it, or it would jump up to 40 mph sporadically, or it wouldn't pick up my speed at all. I figured out that if I put aluminum foil around the back of it, in the direction of my TV, it would cut out most of the interference. It was also less prone to interference if I kept it closer to the transmitter, like in my drink bottle cage. If I wasn't able to come up with this solution I would have rated this product 1 star.

If wireless doesn't matter and you just want to see how far you've gone, one of those cheap wired bike computers they sell at big box stores is fine, but try to get one that lets you set the odometer.
If you want to go wireless, build up an ANT+ based system. Not only can multiple devices listen to each sensor simultaneously, but you'll be able to record your data and upload it to sites like Strava.
