Wahoo buy Sufferfest

Recommended Posts

Interesting indeed. 

With Garmin acquiring Tacx, now Wahoo and sufferfest. (Not to mention the other bike company acquisitions the past year) I wonder what this landscape will look like in another 2 years.

Will companies like Trainerroad and Zwift want to share their back end systems with wahoo, now that they are a direct competitor with them.

That is interesting. That's going to a very tough and potentially costly exercise, trying to produce a rival for Zwift?

Zwift is still running at a massive loss.  I was doing an event last night and they had the fence up.  And it was there and then gone for the entire event.  Something not right with that code.

And then there is 

The Rivet as a rival.

I suppose it depends on where people place the most importance, whether it is with the hardware or the software, and then whether any of the hardware suppliers are keen to lock out some of the software variants in favour of strategic alliances. 

You would have to wonder if Zwift are still not cashed up where any extra revenue is going to come from. It has surely reached critical saturation within its target audiences, and its not like you can then grab people from non-core markets and get them on the product. 

Joe average is not going to invest big bucks to get on Zwift as a fitness alternative.

That Rivet avatar needs a decent bike fit, even though he is not real watching those hips rock is making me want to yell at the screen

True. I would have thought something like Zwift would be huge in gyms, especially zwift running.

With all the millions Roxii made from Trannies maybe he should bail out Zwift?

They need to keep some reserves for Jordan Rapp's next lawsuit.
