Cycling Ireland and Wahoo Fitness have agreed a partnership that will see Wahoo named as the National Governing Bodies official technical partner for smart trainers and bike computers though the 2020 season.

Wahoo is the global leader in indoor smart trainers and connected cycling computers with an entire Wahoo training ecosystem. During competition, riders can rely upon Wahoo’s aerodynamically tested ELEMNT BOLT GPS Bike Computer and TICKR Heart Rate monitor. For warmups and indoor training, both competitive and leisure cyclists can use Wahoo’s KICKR smart trainers, KICKR HEADWIND smart fan, KICKR CLIMB grade simulator, and KICKR desk.

Neill Delahaye, Cycling Ireland Performance Coach commented:

"Wahoo technology is helping Cycling Ireland’s elite riders prepare for top-level competition. The combination of the TICKR Heart Rate monitor and ELEMNT BOLT GPS Bike Computer provides incredibly versatile and easy to use functionality. There is a very neatly integrated aero design with the capability to view and record all crucial performance metrics. The KICKR, KICKR CLIMB and KICKR HEADWIND combo provide everything a rider needs to replicate the demands of racing indoors and allows our athletes to ride no matter what the weather outdoors is doing.”

“These cutting-edge technologies are also enabling us to simulate and replicate specific courses which give Irish athletes a further advantage in preparing optimally and being ready for the highest-level International competitions.”

“I want to thank Wahoo Fitness for their belief and support of our work as a governing body and look forward to working with them.”

The Wahoo brand is known for innovation, quality, and performance and is the choice for elite athletes around the world, including Tour de France winners, UCI road race world champions and Ironman world champions.

Colin Eustace, VP Global Marketing at Wahoo commented:

“We are thrilled to announce this partnership with Cycling Ireland, their core values resonate perfectly with Wahoo thanks to their desire to help every cyclist develop their full potential. The development of athletes is something Wahoo has always stayed close to, by recognising and understanding the needs of these athletes we are able to offer them the latest in innovation to aid them on their journey.”

The KICKR wheel-off smart trainer offers the most realistic road feel of any smart trainer currently available, allowing athletes to simulate outdoor riding while training indoors. The KICKR CLIMB grade simulator will enable athletes to realistically replicate the courses they will encounter during the season, and the KICKR HEADWIND smart fan will help athletes maintain an optimal core temperature while training. Cycling Ireland riders will also use the aerodynamic, easy-to-use ELEMNT BOLT bike computer, and the TICKR Heart Rate Monitor. Both devices measure critical race-winning efforts and allow the team to refine their training and racing strategies.

Cycling Ireland riders are entering a critical period for Olympic and Paralympic qualification with a series of Track World Cup events in Hong Kong, New Zealand, Australia and Canada in the coming months. The Paracycling squad will compete at the UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships in Canada from January 30th.

As well as being a busy period for Cycling Ireland’s elite riders, plans are in place to trial a Virtual Cycling event in 2020. The Wahoo product range is ideal for participation in this exciting aspect of the sport and for building fitness over the winter months.
