In the struggle for supremacy this 2022 indoor cycling season, the superpowers have faced off in a battle to claim their stake in the virtual cycling landscape. The opening salvo came from Zwift in early September with an ambitious rollout featuring a host of improvements.

Wahoo-RGT recently returned fire when on October 25, it announced the immediate release of several highly sought upgrades. The cycling community is the victor in this virtual arms race as the many platforms push to raise the bar.
