Wahoo Fitness, the world leader in smartphone-powered fitness hardware, has extended its successful partnership with Team Sky for a third year. The 2016 deal sees the expansion of Wahoo’s relationship to become the Official Supplier of bike trainers and heart rate monitors to Team Sky. Team Sky will now use the Wahoo TICKR to track their heart rate data, alongside the KICKR which has been used for the last two seasons for race-day warm up and cool down.
Carsten Jeppesen, Head of Technical Operations and Commercial for Team Sky, comments: ‘With heart rate data continuing to be of the utmost importance, the addition of the TICKR to our training will give us the reliability and accuracy to use that data in the most effective way.’
Chip Hawkins, CEO and Founder of Wahoo, adds: ‘Team Sky continues to be an excellent partner for us – from gathering rider feedback on our products, to working collaboratively on future innovations, the team shares our absolute passion for taking performance training hardware to the next level, and 2016 will be no different.’
