Wahoo is expanding its portfolio of tech products. The Atlanta-based company has just announced the acquisition of the virtual cycling platform RGT Cycling (now called Wahoo RGT) and the launch of a new subscription service called Wahoo X.
The Wahoo X service is a premium subscription service that includes both the training content of RGT and the Wahoo SYSTM, formerly known as Sufferfest. It provides personalised workouts, video-based content, yoga, and mental training.
Wahoo RGT will allow riders to just ride (alone or with others), but also to race, and explore highly-detailed virtual roads. Among those roads, athletes can find a library of iconic routes (with virtual cheering fans too), but there's also the option to upload personal GPX files and – through the 'Magic Roads' feature – let the RGT software build a virtual version of the route.Wahoo is currently offering a bundled subscription at the same price of the previous stand-alone SYSTM subscription, while existing SYSTM and RGT subscribers will be migrated to Wahoo X at no extra charge.
The same login will also allow Wahooligans to get access to Wahoo's other products like the ELEMNT Companion App, the Wahoo Fitness App, and wahoofitness.com.
Wahoo SYSTM and Wahoo RGT are available for iOS, Android, macOS and Windows.
Subscriptions for Wahoo X are priced at US$14.99 a month or US$129 a year, though Wahoo notes that the annual option is currently not available through the Apple App Store or Google Play.
