Wahoo steps up its research arm, opening a Sports Science Center to build ‘the better athlete in all of us

Wahoo has opened a Sports Science Center in Boulder, Colorado “dedicated to enhancing athletic performance”.

The fitness technology brand, which makes a range of products from some of the best GPS head units to indoor turbo trainers, says the facility will combine research and testing in fields including physiology, biomechanics, nutrients and psychology. It comes hot on the heels of the launch of Wahoo X, a multi-channel app subscription that enables users to access the SYSTM and RGT training apps through a single account. The SYSTM app delivers structured workouts for endurance athletes while RGT is focused on virtual cycling.

Using the expertise of leading coaches and sports scientists, the Center, Wahoo says, “will be at the forefront of driving and informing future innovations”, all with the goal of creating products that address what it describes as the “ever-evolving” needs of athletes. Recent Wahoo products include Speedplay pedals with a built-in power meter and the Wahoo Kickr Rollr, which brings ‘smart’ tech to traditional rollers.
