Wahoo Adds Teams to Deepen Support for Pro Road Racing
ATLANTA, February 2, 2021 — In 2021, more professional road racing teams than ever before are recognizing the performance advantages of training and competing with Wahoo’s class-leading GPS devices, indoor training ecosystem, and pedals.
As the season gets set to begin, Wahoo is proud to support its largest-ever slate of athletes with 14 professional road racing teams competing at the continental and World Tour levels. Wahoo’s full product line will be highly visible in the peloton, with ELEMNT GPS computers and ELEMNT RIVAL watch allowing athletes to more easily measure and track their racing, training, and recovery. The unsurpassed ride feel and accuracy of the KICKR indoor cycling ecosystem will enhance athletes’ training and pre-race warmups.
“Professional cycling is one of the most physically demanding and technically challenging endurance sports on the planet,” said Wahoo CEO Mike Saturnia. “By adding some of the
strongest teams in the peloton, we’re able to ensure that more top-level athletes will be able to keep 100% of their focus on training and racing, knowing that Wahoo’s ecosystem of indoor and outdoor products deliver superior performance and advanced technology in an easy to use experience.”
Long known for making the most reliable, easiest-to-use cycling electronics, Wahoo added Speedplay pedals to its portfolio in 2019 and is excited to have more teams on the world’s only dual-sided road pedals in 2021. Similarly, Wahoo unveiled its first GPS watch, the ELEMNT RIVAL, in late 2020. In 2021, select teams will have the chance to use this new wearable device to track off-bike activities and metrics, including strength training and other gym sessions, as well as heart rate, and steps.
“Like all Wahoo products, we believe that Speedplay pedals enhance rider performance with their lower stack height, aerodynamic design, and lighter weight. We’re very proud that more teams recognize these performance advantages and will be riding Speedplay this season,” said Saturnia. “With the addition of the ELEMNT RIVAL GPS Sports Watch, our athletes can now gain greater insights into their off-bike hours by tracking cross-training activities and monitoring sleep.”
