It all started due to a simple need: a better way to track, measure and share training data from your fitness sensors. That need spun into the ANT+ Key.
2012：BLUE HR & BLUE SC SENSORS
With mostly ANT+ sensors on the market, Wahoo saw the opportunity to connect in a new way using Bluetooth Technology as an alternative. In 2012, we introduced the Blue HR & SC sensors, the first heart rate, speed, and cadence sensors that connected to the iPhone via Bluetooth.
We wanted to continue to build on this idea of connected training, and leverage technology to bring the hard rides inside and simulate the resistance and feeling of being outdoors. We set out to build something of our own, not knowing it would change the way cyclists train indoors and spark a revolution.
Now that we had indoor metrics figured out, it was time to step outside our comfort zone. We set out to radically simplify GPS bike computers from the setup to the user experience. The result was ELEMNT, a simply powerful GPS bike computer that uses the intuitive Interface of your smartphone to configure and customize the device via the ELEMNT Companion App.
2018：INDOOR TRAINER ECOSYSTEM
By 2018 we'd mastered tracking and sharing rides indoors and out; now our focus turned to making indoor training the most immersive experience it could be. Insert KICKR CLIMB & KICKR HEADWIND, the innovative trainer accessories that elevated the experience of riding a KICKR Smart Trainer and brought the elements and movement of riding outdoors inside, creating realistic, connected indoor cycling ecosystem.
The obvious progression to this revolution was to replicate, not just your outdoor ride, but your entire outdoor bike setup. The culmination of this effort, KICKR BIKE, is a fully customizable indoor smart bike, with grade simulation, that uses the intuitive interface of your smartphone to recreate your outdoor bike ride feel.
