Wahoo has acquired virtual cycling platform RGT Cycling as part of plans to strengthen its ecosystem of integrated smart training solutions.

The connected fitness provider, which specialises in serving endurance athletes, has rebranded the cycling training software as Wahoo RGT.

Powered by an advanced physics engine, Wahoo RGT allows cyclists to ride, race and explore on highly-detailed virtual roads, either alone or with others.

The platform is designed to provide realistic drafting, cornering and braking, making it an immersive cycling simulator.

Users can choose from a library of some of cycling’s most iconic routes and racecourses – complete with authentic scenery and cheering fans – or upload their own route and let RGT build an accurate, virtual version using its Magic Roads feature.

To accompany the acquisition, Wahoo also launched Wahoo X: a new premium subscription service that gives users full access to all of the features and content for both its Wahoo SYSTM platform and Wahoo RGT under a single subscription, account, and login.

Wahoo is offering the new Wahoo X bundled subscription for the same price as the previous stand-alone SYSTM subscription.

Mike Saturnia, CEO of Wahoo, said: "​​“The acquisition of RGT Cycling and the launch of the new Wahoo X subscription service gives athletes more options, more convenience, and more control over how they train.

“With a single subscription and one account that works across the entire suite of Wahoo products, we’re able to deliver value and an experience that seamlessly integrates the Wahoo ecosystem of hardware and software solutions, allowing athletes to get the most out of their training, whether indoors or outdoors."

Wahoo SYSTM and Wahoo RGT are both available for iOS, Android, macOS and Windows.
