RGT Cycling becomes Wahoo RGT with new premium subscription service Wahoo X

Wahoo has announced the acquisition of virtual cycling platform RGT Cycling, now Wahoo RGT, and a new subscription service dubbed Wahoo X.

Wahoo RGT (Road Grand Tours) aims to provide users with realistic drafting, cornering and braking, featuring a plethora of cycling’s most iconic routes and race courses.

According to Wahoo, you can also upload your own GPX file from any route across the world and RGT will build an accurate, virtual version through its Magic Roads feature.

Users are able to join public events created by the RGT community and brand partners as subscribers can create, customise and schedule group activities like group races or rides.

To make it more cost-effective for subscribers of both platforms, Wahoo is launching Wahoo X, a new premium subscription service that allows full access to all features supplied by both Wahoo SYSTM and Wahoo RGT under the one subscription, account and login.

Wahoo is offering the new Wahoo X bundled subscription for the same price as the previous stand-alone SYSTM subscription.

Mike Saturnia, CEO of Wahoo, says, ‘With a single subscription and one account that works across the entire suite of Wahoo products, we’re able to deliver unprecedented value and a best-in-class experience.

‘[This allows] athletes to get the most out of their training, whether indoors or outdoors.

‘We’re committed to ensuring that our expanded offering of comprehensive training and virtual cycling software remains open and compatible with key industry players and standards. Athlete choice and freedom will continue to be at the heart of everything we do at Wahoo.’

This move means Wahoo has added to its portfolio of training software, with its 2019 acquisition of Sufferfest (later rebranded into Wahoo SYSTM), that offers personalised workouts paired with immersive, video-based content, as well as yoga, strength, and mental training.



Wahoo SYSTM and Wahoo RGT are both available for iOS, Android, macOS and Windows.

Existing SYSTM and RGT subscribers will be migrated to Wahoo X at no additional charge.

A 14-day free trial is available, allowing new users to explore the entire suite of content and functionality in both apps.

Subscriptions for Wahoo X are priced at US$14.99 a month or US$129 a year. Wahoo notes that the annual option is currently not available through the Apple App Store or Google Play.
