KICKR ERG Mode Not Working On Old Firmware (as of Friday, March 8th, 2019)

As of: Friday, March 8th, 2019

ERG mode for Wahoo KICKRs with firmware older than May 2016 will not work properly via ANT+.

Users being affected will see their KICKR as a "Wahoo Power Meter". 

To fix ERG mode for your KICKR, update your KICKR using the Wahoo Fitness App. Once your firmware is updated, your KICKR will now be recognized properly within TrainerRoad, and ERG mode will function properly once again.

Users being affected by this issue are on the latest update of the TrainerRoad Windows and Mac apps that were released on March 7th, 2019.

How to Update Wahoo KICKR's Firmware

In order to update your firmware, you'll need the Wahoo Fitness App downloaded on your iOS or Android device.
