Wahoo partners with JLT Condor

Wahoo Fitness has entered a partnership for the 2018 professional road racing season with British UCI Continental team JLT Condor.

During the 2018 and 2019 seasons, JLT Condor will use Wahoo’s Elemnt Bolt GPS computer which was designed using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) testing to be the most aerodynamic cycling computer on the market, Wahoo’s Tickr heart rate monitor and RPM Speed and RPM Cadence sensors.

Led by three-time Olympic team pursuit champion, Ed Clancy, and managed by former national champion, John Herety, 2018 will be JLT Condor’s 11th year as a UCI Continental squad. The team has won numerous stages at the Tours of Korea, Taiwan and New Zealand Cycle Challenge, as well as GC victories at the Tour du Loir-et-Cher and the Bay Crits. Team JLT Condor are also the reigning champions of the domestic Tour Series criterium competition.

Former riders Hugh Carthy, Alex Frame and Chris Lawless have progressed to riding for the EF Education First-Drapac, Trek-Segafredo and Team Sky UCI WorldTour teams respectively in 2018.

The news also follows the recent announcement that Wahoo has become SweetSpot’s Official Training and Cycle Computer Partner. Wahoo will provide an insight into rider data from partner teams for use in TV coverage of the OVO Energy Tour of Britain (2-9 September 2018), OVO Energy Women’s Tour (13-17 June 2018) and OVO Energy Tour Series (May 2018).

JLT Condor’s team manager, John Herety said: “We always want to work alongside companies who have the same competitive edge and winning mentality as the team. It’s clear that Wahoo develop and build their products to a similar ethos, and that the Elemnt Bolt GPS computer offers notable performance gains in terms of its aerodynamic design and data capture technologies.’

Colin Eustace, Wahoo’s Vice President of Global Marketing, said: “I have no doubt that the performance gains offered by the Wahoo Elemnt Bolt GPS computer will benefit JLT Condor’s talented roster when they race in both the UK and abroad in the months ahead.”
