The collaboration extends Flywheel's long-term innovation strategy and goal of integrating with other technology services, relevant for Flywheel's results-driven consumer.

"Both of our brands appeal to the world's most engaged fitness consumers – those looking to challenge themselves and others – and our integrated offering enables these fitness athletes to now compete and compare ride stats, enabling them to achieve more of their brilliant goals and share their achievements with the world."
"It's so clear when you experience it - in my very first class, the motivation from Flywheel's instructors and the TorqBoard inspired one of the best workouts I've had." said James Quarles, Strava CEO. "We're excited to partner closely with Flywheel to connect more of the achievements in their 'stadiums' with the encouragement and fun of the Strava community."
The integration meets the needs of the fitness consumer who seek customized, metrics-focused training to help them reach their goals. Both Strava and Flywheel athletes seek friendly competition and use social accountability to drive their fitness experience.
