Wahoo has its roots in a simple ANT+ dongle, which allowed founder and current CEO, Chip Hawkins, to pair external sensors to his smartphone so it could be used as a head unit replacement.
This problem-solving ethos is what the Atlanta, Georgia-based technology outfit has built its brand upon - and is now producing everything from dual-band sensors to one of the best smart bikes.
The key to all of Wahoo's gear is that it's easy to use and reliable. The head units are intuitive and offer best in class app integration, and the wheel-on, direct-drive smart trainers smart bike are universally compatible with indoor cycling apps, including The Sufferfest which Wahoo acquired in July 2019.
If you're unsure what to choose in Wahoo's comprehensive range of cycling products we've compiled a Wahoo Fitness range overview to keep you abreast of current trends. We've also compiled buyer's guides on the best turbo trainers, best cycling computers and best heart rate monitors, too.
In our eternal aim to round up the best cycling deals in order to help our readers save money, we've rounded up the best Wahoo deals below, however, due to the current lack of turbo trainer availability, we've also collated the best places to buy Wahoo tech where stock exists.
Best deals on Wahoo smart trainers
The Wahoo Kickr Snap features all the necessary tech to connect you to indoor cycling apps, but the wheel-on nature helps to keep the price down.
It features power accuracy of +/- 3%, a maximum resistance of 1500 watts, as well as a maximum gradient simulation of 12%. The 10.5lb flywheel helps to offer a realistic road feel, and the included accessories make it compatible with road bikes of all styles.
The Wahoo Kickr Core delivers an authentic and accurate indoor cycling experience, thanks to the brand's proven 5.4kg flywheel technology and the smooth and quiet belt motor drivetrain. When connected to your smartphone, tablet or laptop, you can use the Wahoo SUF Training app to automatically set your resistance. Meanwhile, the Kickr Core can simulate climbs of up to a 16 per cent gradient, and provides a maximum of 1,800W of resistance for you to power through.
The ever-popular Wahoo Kickr smart trainer has been upgraded to incorporate even better power accuracy, automatic calibration, and new Kickr Axis feet that provide authentic side-to-side movement to enhance the ride feel and mimic the feeling of cycling outdoors.
If you're starting your pain cave setup from scratch and would rather not relegate one of your bikes to the house, there's a lot to be gained from Wahoo's Kickr smart bike. Constructed from robust steel and aluminium, the Kickr Bike uses the same legendary flywheel technology as the Kickr smart trainer, which means incredible power accuracy and responsiveness. The Kickr Bike delivers real-time grade changes to match ascents of up to 20 per cent, replicating an authentic ride feel that enables you to maintain your pace. You can programme the virtual shifting to match your preferred gear ratio, number of speeds, cassette tooth count and even groupset from Shimano, SRAM and Campagnolo. All in all it delivers the ultimate indoor bike training setup, while the free year's subscription to Wahoo SUF Training will make the perfect companion for it.

Where to find even more cycling deals
Competitive Cyclist is one of the largest cycling retailers in the US. Their cycling sale is ongoing and there are deals aplenty.
ProBikeKit often slashes prices on Castelli clothing, Scicon bike boxes, and an abundance of accessories including power meters and lights.
BackCountry, the US outdoor sports retailer, is one of the United States' go-to online retailers for bikes, components, clothing and accessories. It doesn't limit itself to cycling though, with fishing, skiing, and even yoga in the range of sports catered for.
Jenson USA is another USA-based retailer and always has thousands of offers available.
Rei is an outdoor retailer based in the USA. There's always a sale, and you can currently get up to 64% off cycling products and even more in other categories.
Gear Coop has a huge cycling section within its sale, including Giro shoes and Look pedals with handsome discounts.
Seshday has up to 80% off in its sale. It's not all cycling, but there's a good portion of tech that cyclists of both road and mountain bike disciplines will get excited about.
Clever Training is the go-to place for all-things fitness training. With everything from turbo trainers to track pumps, the Clever Training sale has discounts on brands such as Garmin, Suunto, Topeak and more.
Moosejaw isn't a dedicated cycling retailer, but it sells a range of venerable brands. There's a heap of bikes on sale, including gravel, road, and electric commuting bikes.
Eastern Mountain Sports is another outdoor retailer that also sells cycling products. You can save up to 60% on cycling gear, although they don't sell bikes.
Tree Fort Bikes has a range of road, gravel and mountain bikes on offer, including a number of bikes from Salsa, Surly and Giant.
Alchemy Bikes currently has its 'roll into summer sale' and with it comes $1000 off select bikes and $1500 off the ARKTOS 27.5.
Walmart might be a left-field inclusion in this list - even with the Walmart family buying Rapha. We certainly wouldn't recommend a typical supermarket bike, but Walmart has a huge range of electronics, a lot of which are useful to us cyclists - such as GoPro cameras, iPads or laptops for Zwift, Garmin computers, or even some new clippers to keep your legs silky smooth.
Wiggle is one of the world's largest online cycling shops, supplying over 70 countries with cycling deals.
Chain Reaction Cycles is owned by Wiggle, and therefore shares many of the same cycling deals as well as an international audience.
Amazon isn't exactly the first retailer you think of when shopping for your bike but there's little the world's largest retailer doesn't sell, such as tablets for Zwift or Garmin computers.
Tredz is another British retailer with international delivery options and a range of great cycling deals.
Rutland Cycling is yet another British retailer that operates internationally.
Tweeks Cycles is more UK-focussed, but there are still some great deals worth checking out.
Hargroves Cycles is a retailer based in the UK and regularly discounts road and gravel bikes.
Cyclestore, one of the UK's lesser-known retailers, often has Specialized products at the best available price.
Leisure Lakes is another UK retailer. With 11 stores, it's a relatively well-known franchise, and will happily ship overseas.
Halfords is discounting all sorts of cycling products. We'd recommend against their bikes, but for electronics and tools, you can't go far wrong.
