  1. KICKR SNAP is designed to work with training platforms like Zwift and TrainerRoad that make riding indoors more competitive, interactive, convenient, and fun. Users can choose the Wahoo Fitness app or from a number of third-party apps to ride a virtual course with friends or perform a structured, power-based workout to achieve their fitness goals. KICKR Snap will be available October 2015 at select specialty retailers and WahooFitness.co.za for R12,999. Using ANT+ and Bluetooth 4.0 technology, KICKR SNAP connects wirelessly to Apple, Android and Windows platforms, so you can conveniently capture all of your important ride data. Further, Wahoo’s full line of sensors and devices, like the TICKR X Workout Tracker, can easily be integrated to record heart rate and cycling cadence. “When we introduced our first KICKR trainer in 2012, we redefined the trainer category by offering the first iPhone powered cycling trainer,” said Chip Hawkins, CEO of Wahoo Fitness. “The KICKR SNAP is a descendent of our gold standard KICKR, and provides similar features but is easier to use, so users of all abilities can stay fit year round.” SNAP features a wheel-on design, so users can easily attach a bicycle of almost any type. Weighing 38 pounds, SNAP provides a smooth and stable ride, and is designed to keep its feet firmly planted on the floor so you can ride with confidence. Thanks to a unique flywheel, SNAP has been engineered to replicate the inertia experienced when riding outdoors, providing the highest inertia of any smart trainer on the market and unmatched wattage at any speed.
  2. “The world we ride in isn’t flat, which is why we believed the indoor riding experience on the KICKR should follow suit,” says Wahoo Fitness CEO Chip Hawkins. “And as we continue to keep Wahoo at the leading edge of innovation in this category, we’re proud to quite literally take structured climbing workouts and virtual course rides to the next level,” continues Hawkins. When paired with the new KICKR and KICKR SNAP Smart Trainers, the KICKR CLIMB responds to workout and virtual course data in real-time, mimicking real roads and mountain climbs by raising and lowering the front fork of the rider’s bike, to match ascents up to 20%, and descents of -10%. These real grade changes create a more immersive virtual riding experience while also engaging climbing muscles and improving pedaling technique to enable the rider to become a more efficient and powerful climber. In addition to reacting to grade changes from external sources like Zwift, TrainerRoad, or from pre-loaded routes on Wahoo’s ELEMNT & ELEMNT BOLT GPS cycling computers, the KICKR CLIMB can be ‘locked,’ wherein it only responds to commands received from the bar-mounted remote, enabling the rider to manually adjust the grade with the simple press of a button. The latest versions on the KICKR and KICKR SNAP Smart Trainers have been optimized to allow this dynamic KICKR CLIMB movement creating an unmatched indoor training system. The smooth, intuitive ride feel of the KICKR’s legendary flywheel combined with the actual grade changes created by the KICKR CLIMB make for a truly immersive indoor riding experience. The KICKR CLIMB supports a wide range of modern hub configurations, including quick-release, 12x100, 15x100, and 15x110 thru axle hubs. The estimated time of arrival of the KICKR CLIMB in South Africa is November 2017. Want to buy an indoor trainer?Find new or used smart trainers and accessories in our marketplace here.
  3. Joining the flagship ELEMNT, and the aerodynamic ELEMNT BOLT GPS cycling computers, the all-new ELEMNT MINI is a standalone wireless bike computer that provides a compelling economical product for cyclists. When used with the ELEMNT companion App, the ELEMNT MINI is able to capture a full suite of ride data like cadence, heart rate, call/text notifications, while also enabling friends or family members to follow ride progress with Wahoo’s newly enhanced Live Track capability. In addition to the rich functionality, the ELEMNT MINI carries Wahoo’s signature user-friendliness and cutting-edge innovation due to seamless integration with the ELEMNT Companion App. Originally introduced in 2016, this game-changing companion app streamlines how consumers interact with their bike computer, dramatically simplifying setup, customization and connectivity. Sticking close to its namesake, the ELEMNT MINI is equipped with a streamlined, two-button interface and a 1.8” diagonal LCD screen, yielding a smaller size that tips the scales at a feathery light 31.2 grams. It is powered by Bluetooth and ANT+ technologies, making it compatible with all Wahoo sensors including the RPM Speed Sensor (included with the ELEMNT MINI), the RPM Cadence Sensor and the TICKR Heart Rate Monitor (sold separately) for cyclists looking to specifically tailor their data tracking needs. At the heart of the wallet-friendly and feature-rich ELEMNT MINI, is Wahoo’s improved Live Track feature, which enables others to monitor the user’s current and traveled locations in real-time on a map, along with any data (speed, heart rate, cadence) being transmitted to their cycling computer. “The new MINI is a key piece in the Wahoo ELEMNT bike computer portfolio,” said Jose Mendez, Director of Product Management for Cycling Products at Wahoo Fitness. “Thanks to the Wahoo ELEMNT Companion App we are bringing the powerful, yet simple Wahoo Fitness experience, to a whole new category of economy-minded cyclists while delivering much of the same data that our professional athletes demand.” Local pricing and availability The recommended retail price for the ELEMNT MINI is R1,899.The first stock will arrive in about two weeks. Pre-orders can be placed with Wahoo Fitness South Africa.
  4. Wahoo reinvented how consumers interact with their bike computer with the Wahoo ELEMNT Bike Computer, launched last Spring. The ELEMNT leverages a powerful companion app to simplify setup and customization, and incorporates game-changing features such as ‘Perfect View’ zoom and ‘Quicklook’. LED Indicators Now, Wahoo is addressing the unique needs of the performance-driven rider with the new ELEMNT BOLT. The ELEMNT BOLT pairs the ELEMNT’s groundbreaking ease-of-use and powerful performance with a form factor designed to blend seamlessly with the bike. Wahoo collaborated with world-renowned cycling aerodynamics expert Dimitris Katsanis to develop the BOLT. “In recent years, the sport of cycling has placed a premium on the study of aerodynamics and gaining a mechanical advantage wherever possible,” said Katsanis. “With this in mind, Wahoo created a bike computer design that lends itself to actually improving results on the bike, in addition to tracking them. We thought about the desired result and worked backwards from there, designing the computer and mount as a single integrated aerodynamic package while still delivering on the core Wahoo user experience.” “It seems silly professional riders spend hours in the wind tunnel trying to reduce every watt of drag possible on their equipment setup, but until now, no one has focused on the computer design and how it affects performance,” said Chip Hawkins, CEO of Wahoo Fitness. “We designed the ELEMNT BOLT to provide riders with all the data they need to perform at their best, while also improving their results.” Using a high-contrast 2.2-inch display and QuickLook LEDs introduced on the ELEMNT, the ELEMNT BOLT provides riders with easy, at-a-glance access to pertinent ride data, as well as call, text and email notifications. ELEMNT BOLT is equipped with WiFi for over-the-air updates and both ANT+ and Bluetooth, allowing it to connect to sensors of all kinds and the most popular electronic shifting systems. As with the Wahoo ELEMNT, all data fields and page configurations on the ELEMNT BOLT can be customized via the ELEMNT companion app available for both iOS and Android. The app also automates the pairing process for fast, frustration-free set-up and personalization. Pre-loaded with maps from around the world, the ELEMNT BOLT also seamlessly integrates with popular cycling platforms like Strava Live Segments, Best Bike Split Race Plans, and Ride With GPS. The ELEMNT BOLT retails for R4,999 and is now available for pre-order from www.buycycle.co.za and leading bike dealers.
  5. Wahoo Fitness, the leader in workout apps and connected fitness devices, today announced ELEMNT BOLT, the latest model in its growing lineup of powerful and easy-touse bike computers. ELEMNT BOLT is the first GPS cycling computer and mount developed as an integrated system designed to drastically reduce drag. When tested against leading competitors using computational fluid dynamics (CFD), the ELEMNT BOLT system reduced air resistance by over 50 percent – equating to a 12.6 second time reduction over a 40-kilometer time trial course for a rider travelling at 21 miles per hour.
