Wattbike have announced a partnership with virtual cycling platform ROUVY.
The partnership will "give users the world's most authentic cycling experience indoors" according to a launch statement, with Wattbikers now able to connect their Atom, AtomX, Nucleus, Pro or Trainer with the ROUVY app to benefit from an immersive indoor cycling experience.
"The Wattbike Atom and AtomX smart bikes automatically adjust resistance to mimic the feel of real-world cycling and provide an authentic riding experience," continues the statement.
"ROUVY is an online racing platform that uses augmented/mixed reality to bring real world routes indoors. With this new integration, Wattbike users can now enjoy ROUVY's animated 3D rides in 2D videos which give the feel of truly cycling outdoors as well as access to thousands of high-quality routes, fun challenges and live community leaderboards."
ROUVY is the official partner of high profile events including La Vuelta, Tour de Suisse, and IRONMAN, and thanks to the new partnership Wattbike users will be able to take part in exclusive and official virtual races or ride these routes whenever they want.
Richard Baker, Wattbike CEO, commented, "We pride ourselves on continually improving the experience for our community of Wattbikers. Part of this is working to ensure our users have access to a wide variety of training platforms on their Wattbike, and this latest integration with ROUVY is key."
Chief Product Officer of ROUVY, Oldrich Januska, said, "It's been ROUVY strategy for several years to support the integration with all major trainers and smart bikes.
"Wattbike was recently the most requested hardware integration by our community and we're very happy to announce integration across the Wattbike product portfolio."
