Wahoo Fitness and Rapha Cycling Club today announced Wahoo Fitness as the official global technology partner of the Rapha Cycling Club.
A first for the RCC, the global technology partnership with Wahoo Fitness will allow members to benefit from Wahoo’s product lineup.
“Rapha’s singular goal of creating unforgettable ride experiences through the Rapha Cycling Club led us on an extensive search for the right technology partner and we’re happy to have found Wahoo Fitness,” said Rapha CMO Sarah Clark.
“Like Rapha, Wahoo focuses on enhancing the user experience through leading-edge technology. Wahoo will be a real asset to our club members, facilitating their exploration of the best local riding our global Clubhouses have to offer.”
As part of the partnership, Wahoo will provide select Rapha Clubhouses with its KICKR and KICKR Snap smart trainers, giving members the chance to test out the brand’s indoor cycling trainers. Additionally, Wahoo will equip RCC’s rental fleet of Canyon bicycles with ELEMNT GPS cycling computers. Each ELEMNT unit will be pre-loaded with a curated list of local Rapha Cycling Club rides.
“As the Global Technology Partner of the Rapha Cycling Club, we’re honored to give so many club members access to Wahoo’s best-loved products,” said CEO of Wahoo Fitness Chip Hawkins. “Members can now visit a Clubhouse from anywhere in the world and have the power to explore the best routes in the area, right from their handlebars.”
Rapha currently has 14 Clubhouses worldwide with locations in London, New York, Tokyo, Sydney and beyond. In addition to a growing list of permanent Clubhouses, Rapha also maintains five mobile clubhouses in the US, UK, Europe, Australia, Taiwan and Japan that supply riders with the finest coffee, live racing and limited-edition products from the road.
