Wahoo Fitness has announced a new partnership with the BORA-hansgrohe professional cycling team, led by three-time World Champion Peter Sagan and 2016 Polish National Champion Rafael Majka.
With the partnership, Team Bora-hansgrohe will be training and racing with Wahoo’s aerodynamic ELEMNT BOLT GPS cycling computer and the TICKR Heart Rate Monitor beginning in the 2018 UCI race season.

In 2017, BORA-hansgrohe secured over 30 wins, including six national and world championship jersey victories. The team will be looking to build on its success in 2018, with the addition of performance tools from Wahoo Fitness and the signing of key riders like Peter Kennaugh and Daniel Oss.
In leveraging Wahoo’s leading-edge fitness technologies, the BORA-hansgrohe team joins 2017 Tour de France winners Team Sky, who have turned to Wahoo since 2014 in the pursuit of gains both major and marginal at the highest levels of WorldTour performance.
“We entered this partnership because the technical features of the Wahoo BOLT persuaded us with its technical features. It works perfectly for us on both training rides and in races because it syncs easily with our training platform Web4Trainer,” said BORA-hansgrohe team manager Ralph Denk. “The BOLT’s outstanding interface also makes the handling really easy for our riders.”
“I think the Wahoo bike computers stand out not only for the technology, performance and features, they offer but also for their cool design and user-friendliness,” said Peter Sagan, three-time World Champion and BORA-hansgrohe captain. “They are easy to use and can be fully-customized, which for me, is very important.”
“It’s been a dream of mine to have a World Tour-caliber team racing with Wahoo devices, measuring and planning their stage-winning efforts,” said Chip Hawkins, CEO of Wahoo Fitness. “It was with this goal in mind that we worked with industry leaders in aerodynamics to design the BOLT – with the sole intent of reducing drag and saving watts to help the fastest teams in the world like BORA-hansgrohe go even faster.”
