Wattbike launches new leaderboard platform to engage Wattbikers worldwide

The Leaderboards feature includes a variety of challenges, such as endurance tests, hill climbs, speed sprints, and distance goals / Wattbike
Wattbike, innovators of indoor cycling, proudly announces the launch of its new Leaderboards feature. This addition offers Wattbikers of all levels an engaging and competitive platform to track their performance, set new personal records, and compete with a global community.

The Leaderboards feature includes a variety of challenges, such as endurance tests, hill climbs, speed sprints, and distance goals so that organisations such as sports teams, gyms or schools and colleges can run internal Wattbike challenges, engaging riders in a whole new way, helping to boost retention and drive motivation. Wattbikers can easily participate by completing any workout in the 'Challenges' category or by taking part in selected tests and climbs via the free to use Wattbike Training Hub app. By default, the Leaderboards display "all-time" results, with a monthly breakdown coming soon to help users track their progress more closely.

Alongside this launch Wattbike is running its latest edition of its signature 1k Challenge, calling on all Wattbikers to complete the 1k workout in the Wattbike Training Hub as quickly as possible. There will be a £250 voucher to spend in the Wattbike eComm store for the winner.

This summer, Wattbike is also introducing special challenges themed around the Tour de France and the Olympics. During July there will be a series of Tour themed climbs across Cime de la Bonette, Col Bayard, Col du Galibier, Puy Mary & Sauveur as part of the Summer Sessions series. Distance challenges will return during the Olympics and throughout August, mirroring some of the iconic races set to be run at the Velodrome National during Paris 2024.

These challenges provide a unique opportunity for Wattbikers of all levels to participate, whether they have a bike at home, use one at the gym, or are part of a school or athletic program. Designed to be fun and inclusive, these events offer potential for competition across various groups and sports, and even serve as a platform for talent identification.

“Our goal with the Leaderboards is to enhance motivation and foster a sense of community among Wattbike users,” said Stephen Loftus, CEO of Wattbike. “Whether you’re a seasoned athlete or simply riding to keep fit, this feature offers a fun and dynamic way to challenge yourself and achieve your fitness goals.”

Participants can track their progress with detailed analytics and enjoy a seamless experience with any Wattbike model linked to the Hub app. Users can also choose to manage their privacy settings to control the visibility of their rides.

Tom Cramptoon, Head of Commercial, Wattbike adds: “We're thrilled to introduce our Wattbike Leaderboards feature. This is a great way to incorporate community activities in your gym or studio by enhancing competitive spirit amongst your members, giving them a platform to test their limits and track their progress against Wattbikers worldwide. Whether they're fitness enthusiasts or just beginning their journey, our leaderboard offers a challenge for everyone.”

Exciting updates on the horizon include Team Events, sub-leaderboards for teams or groups of friends, country-specific rankings, and personal best (PB) functionality. These enhancements are designed to make cycling even more fun and engaging, offering new ways to compete, collaborate, and celebrate achievements within the global Wattbike community.

Alex Dowsett, former World Tour cyclist and Wattbike ambassador, expressed his enthusiasm for the new initiative, as he said, “The Leaderboards are a really exciting new feature, and are a great way for cyclists to better their best and enjoy a bit of gentle competition at the same time. It’s a fantastic way to stay motivated and engaged with your training, and I’m looking forward to giving it a go myself!”

Testimonial
“Our approach when it comes to gym design and equipment is to always seek the best-in-class options for our members. We want our members to use the best treadmills, the best Olympic lifting bars, the best strength machines and the best bikes on the market.

“With Wattbike’s experience and exposure in the highest levels of elite sport all over the World, it was an obvious choice for us to have the Wattbikes as our bike of choice for Third Space.”

– Rob Beale, fitness director, Third Space
Testimonial
“Wattbikes are simply the best. There’s a reason they are the bike of choice for so many top athletes and professional teams and for us, the fact that they are durable and powerless means they can be easily moved around our athletics performance training area where we have created an area for all powerless and functional equipment, allowing the members complete flexibility over how they train.”

– Gareth Jones, COO, Wellfit.
Testimonial
“Nothing comes close to Wattbike when it comes to accurate testing, immediate feedback, comfort, durability and the real-ride feel.

“The Wattbike proves immensely beneficial for athletes, particularly in rehabilitation or off-feet conditioning. It allows athletes to minimise leg impact while still focusing on enhancing their cardiovascular ability.”

– Jordan Demetriou, head of performance, Mykonos Performance
