Zwift partners with Wahoo

Zwift has partnered with Wahoo.

The Wahoo Climb Mission will take place from 1st to 23rd December and will give cyclists the opportunity to see how many feet they can climb on the roads of Zwift’s digital worlds, earn in-game bonuses, and gain the chance to win real-life prizes.

Athletes can join the mission in-game via their drop screen and everyone who participates will see an in-game Climbing Progress tracker and a Wahoo Mission Badge.

All smart trainers are compatible with Zwift’s virtual cycling environments, but only the Wahoo Kickr, Kickr Core, and Kickr Snap are compatible with the Wahoo Kickr Climb Indoor Grade Simulator.

Kickr Climb uses data from Zwift to automatically change a bike’s pitch, matching the incline shown in Zwift.

Any athlete using Zwift can join the Wahoo Climbing Challenge.

Those who climb 7,500 feet in the challenge will earn one entry to the First Prize draw and unlock an in-game Wahoo cycling cap and socks.

Cyclists who climb 12,000 feet will earn two chances to win the First Prize and an in-game Wahoo cycling kit, and those who climb 20,000 feet will be eligible to win the Grand prize.

The First Prize winner will receive a Kickr Core smart trainer and a Kickr Climb, and the Grand Prize winner will receive a package of Kickr, Kickr Climb, Kickr Headwind, Kickr Desk, and Kickr Mat.

Winners will be notified on 7th January.
