Sram red AXS compatibility with wahoo kickr

Hi, can someone help me ,
Is possible to use the wahoo kickr 11 speed with sram red axs 12 speed, i will only use it in erg mode, if indo this i can damage axs chainrings or chain?
Thank you!

Not a good idea to run the 12-speed chain on an 11-speed cassette. The new AXS chain is more narrow and might be open for risk to damage from use on a wider 11-speed cassette cog.

The outer plates are thinner, but the overall proportions of plate thickness and internal space between the plates are all smaller now. Meaning this 12-speed chain is a lot thinner than the 11-speed one.


OK, i will have to wait for an xdr freehub wahoo body,
thank you so much for your help.

@mcneese.chad based on your comment above, would it be ok to run an 11 speed drivetrain on a 12 speed cassette if in ERG on Kickr (no chain movement up/down cassette)?

My situation is i am running red axs on my road bikes and 11spd red etap on my TT bike (which i need to train on). The Kickr has a Force AXS cassette.

Any help appreciated, didn’t want to open a new topic for this.

Yeah, 11-s chain on 12-s cassette may work fine. Will depend on using ERG and then finding a gear that runs clean without hanging up or slipping down the cassette. But I think that combo seems like less of a problem than the inverse setup.
