Leicester Tigers RFC have announced an official partnership with Wattbike, creators of the world’s most advanced indoor bikes, to optimise players’ fitness, power and performance.
Steve Borthwick, Head Coach, Leicester Tigers explains: “The Wattbike is a go-to, power-based training tool suitable for all the players, regardless of position and will be playing an important role in keeping the team fit throughout the season.”
“The reliability, consistency and accuracy of the Wattbike training data is vital for our sport and position-specific training. For the players, it’s them versus the numbers and there’s no hiding from that. Rugby is all about repeat power outputs and holding that until the last minute of a game, so the Wattbike is perfect to replicate this off the field.”
As part of the partnership, Wattbike have installed 5 of the new Wattbike Nucleus bikes into the Leicester Tigers Training & Academy Centre whilst also loaning bikes into the homes of players who are having to train at home due to Covid-19 restrictions.
The Wattbike has already formed a crucial part of the elite conditioning training programme, playing a key role in keeping the players fit during the unusual off-and-on season dates that were altered due to lockdown conditions earlier this year.
