#indoorcycling #zwift #wahoofitness Wahoo Fitness announced the acquisition of the virtual cycling platform RGT Cycling – now called Wahoo RGT – and also announced the launch of Wahoo X Subscription Service. Naturally, many of you asked the question: how is RGT different than Zwift? So In this video, I am going to go over what these two apps offer, I will talk about the ride physics, workouts and ERG mode controls, racing, multi-sport offering, and pricing. - Chapters - 0:00 Intro 0:38 Zwift vs Wahoo RGT: Free riding 2:48 Zwift vs Wahoo RGT: Riding Physics and Dynamics 3:47 Zwift vs Wahoo RGT: Workouts 4:54 Zwift vs Wahoo RGT: Social Events 7:25 Zwift vs Wahoo RGT: Racing 9:07 Zwift vs Wahoo RGT: Multisport 9:54 Zwift vs Wahoo RGT: Pricing - GEAR I USE - [Affiliate link] - WAHOO KICKR 5 (2020): 🤍smtbk.co/kickrv5 - NEO 2T: 🤍smtbk.co/TacxNEO2T - KOM Cycling Desk: 🤍amzn.to/34W2qeL - Favaro Assioma Dual-Sided Power Meter Pedals: 🤍amzn.to/3t3D9ae - GoPro Hero 10: 🤍amzn.to/3sYNynL - FIND SMART BIKE TRAINER HERE - 🤍🤍smartbiketrainers.com/indoor-smart-bike-trainers-price-tracker ► Get SmartBikeTrainers Shirts 🤍cottonbureau.com/people/smart-bike-trainers ► SUBSCRIBE FOR MORE VIDEOS: 🤍smtbk.co/youtube SMARTBikeTrainers on social media: ► FACEBOOK: 🤍facebook.com/SMARTBIKETRAINERS ► TWITTER: 🤍🤍twitter.com/SBIKETRAINERS ► INSTAGRAM: 🤍instagram.com/SMARTBIKETRAINERS Visit SMARTBikeTrainers.com: 🤍🤍smartbiketrainers.com SAY HI ON SOCIAL MEDIA: Twitter: 🤍TARIQHALI INSTAGRAM: 🤍TARIQHALI Strava: 🤍🤍strava.com/athletes/tariqali Disclaimer: Some of the links used above are affiliate links.

Cornering will be a difficult thing to make realistic unless the industry begins to integrate brakes and steering into the trainers, but that would also imply that the player's bike isn't stuck "on the rails," so to speak.
After trying RGT and comparing what Zwift had to offer it was a no brainer for me...RGT all the way- I hate racing and the egos that come with it, and am happy pacing myself anyway.... The free version of RGT allows an 8km loop, fairly flat called "Borrego Springs" with 2 defined sprint sections, and a new one called "Dunoon" (here in Scotland, yay!!!) which is 14km with 312m ascent and is "gravel" based...it's brilliant and if you want you can just change direction at the start and go the other way for a different elevation profile. I subscribed last night and the Magic Roads feature is amazing- already have 2 of the Teide epics on Tenerife (2000m+) and a couple of ones I made for the hills near my house so I can practice them when it's snowing and icy outside...I've barely looked at the other bit "SYSTM" yet but it's full of stuff and has the "Half Monty" and "4DP" fitness tests too.... Zwift looks far too cartoon/gamer with made up places "Neokyo and Watopia"...probably get chased by dinosaurs or Sonic the Hedgehog......
Zwift is simply a completely different experience. RGT doesnt stand a chance
Also, if you have a real road race coming, you can practice on it with RGT (as if you're there) by uploading the gpx file of the race route to RGT. Zwift has NO ability to do that at the moment, but who knows... they're probably developing a similar thing already.
Can I turn off bots completely?
Can I race against ghost replays like every racing game? (My personal best or the current kom leader etc)
One thing to point out is that the Zwift Running is free too so you can still use that without extra cost if you want to use RGT for cycling.
I wish to hell Zwift would implement a route editor, both for individual and event usage.
Like, FFS, it can't be that hard.
RGT graphics look rediculous :P
I would love to see the Magic roads function actually directly linked to the app, in that you can select your GPX route via a direct link to a route creator then drop it into the Magic Roads area of the main app, I guess this would be viable with a collaboration with one of the main course creation services???, it would also mean any route would be structured to optimise the RGT engine.
If RGT can get more real world users I would seriously consider the swap, I have been using their 14 day trial recently and I really like the look of the routes and I have not had any unexpected connection issues but riding in a empty world is lonely as hell which is ironic as I ride alone 99.9% of the time in the real world. Zwift was the first mover in this space, they have the community and thus there is always a race to enter as a result, I think they may need to look at pricing for the monthly plan to get more people over and then build a community from there. Great content BTW
Priced higher than Zwift now , I used to use rgt but since merged with Wahoo the price has gone to one of the highest on trainer subscriptions, RGT need more courses and group events to justify the price it only used to be £7.99 which was great value ,they only offer one free course now compared to 2 yes they don’t have to offer any as it’s free , also there is no direct pairing to Garmin Connect ,you have to create a download from an email if you want to send it to your Garmin connect activity dashboard, think I’ll stick with Zwift for now and hopefully try rgt again if more value for the cost becomes available
Been a Zwift user for 4 years plus now and yes the drafting although slightly improved is far from reality. I dont or haven't involved myself with the social or various group functions, but retiring in the next few months and will be looking into this. What I haven't seen or unaware of is age based grouping coupled with know average speeds for specific distances. Is this available in Zwift, especially the age grouping. Im not a racer and not at a fanatical consumed rider, Im a 70yo that does pretty good for his age and rides 4 to 5 times weekly.
Great canal. Greetings from Poland bro 👊. Keep doing
You know how to remove bots from Wahoo rgt? To many of them, I don't like it. If anyone knows a way it will be great.
Does magic road actually work now? Smoothing and everything?
~2 years back it was a real pain to get anything else than a mad rollercoaster out of it...
Wahoo should integrate the apps for sure, now they need some AI for training and then they have the trifecta
Is it possible ride on a RGT course and do a structured workout (from training peaks, or library ...)?
Geart video. I've never ridden an indoor trainer before but thinking of buying one. Does Zwift and Wahoo both work off just the app so you could use any indoor trainer? For example, could I buy a Wahoo Kickr and run Zwift? Thanks
RGT asking the same price of Zwift won't help the platform to increase it's population. At $10 bucks, even with the current bad exchange rate, I would give RGT a go, but at $15, Zwift is a better option once I can pay $10 signing with iOS in my region.
I know I'm late, but another awesome video Tariq! I've been watching you for years, you are right up there with DC Rainmaker and GP Llama in terms of people I trust. You deserve way more subscribers! Keep on keeping on, brother.
