Following the 2019 takeover of Sufferfest and its subsequent relaunch last year as the SYSTM training app, Wahoo has announced that it has now acquired the virtual cycling platform RGT Cycling, now to be known as Wahoo RGT in a bid to provide its customers with as comprehensive an integrated indoor cycling experience as possible.

More choice seems to be the aim, aside from any commercial interests, because even though riders could previously use SYSTM, RGT Cycling, Zwift, Trainerroad et al. with its indoor cycling hardware such as the Kickr turbo trianer, the creation of the premium Wahoo X subscription service will give riders a single login access to the former two platforms, and perhaps create a viable rival to the dominant position of Zwift in the indoor cycling segment.

Will joined the Cyclingnews team as a reviews writer in 2022, having previously written for Cyclist, BikeRadar and Advntr. There are very few types of cycling he's not dabbled in, and he has a particular affection for older bikes and long lasting components. Road riding was his first love, before graduating to racing CX in Yorkshire. He's been touring on a vintage tandem all the way through to fixed gear gravel riding and MTB too. When he's not out riding one of his many bikes he can usually be found in the garage tinkering with another of them, or getting obsessive about tyres. Also, as he doesn't use Zwift, he's our go-to guy for bad weather testing... bless him.
