COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — USA Triathlon today announced it has signed a four-and-a-half-year agreement with Wahoo Fitness, the global leader in indoor smart trainers and connected cycling computers, as a technological partner supporting the National Governing Body’s elite and amateur athletes, programming and events.

Wahoo’s portfolio of products includes the popular KICKR family of indoor cycling trainers and ELEMNT family of cycling computers. Beginning in 2020, the partnership will expand to also include the TICKR family of heart rate monitors.

“No matter where USA Triathlon members are in their multisport journey, data and technology are critical to monitoring their training and progress along the way. We are proud to welcome Wahoo to our family of partners to maximize use of that data in training and racing,” said Chuck Menke, Chief Marketing Officer at USA Triathlon. “Wahoo’s smart bike trainers and cycling computers are transforming the way we approach both indoor and outdoor training, providing valuable insights to improve the multisport experience for age-groupers and elite athletes alike.”

“Triathletes worldwide have embraced Wahoo’s products to train and compete at the highest levels,” said Mike Saturnia, Wahoo Fitness CEO. “We are thrilled to partner as the exclusive smart bike trainer and GPS bike computer of USA Triathlon, the U.S. National Team, Toyota U.S. Paratriathlon National Team and Project Podium.”

Wahoo will also serve as the presenting sponsor of USA Triathlon’s Athlete of the Year and Multisport Awards, which celebrate the greatest accomplishments and contributions to the sport on an annual basis. The company will provide support for age-group athletes via the “Warm Up Zone Powered by Wahoo Fitness” at select USA Triathlon-owned National Championships, as well as the Legacy Triathlon held in Long Beach, California.
