As a passionate cyclist, I am always on the lookout for the best gear to enhance my riding experience. I recently purchased the Wahoo Fitness ELEMNT Bolt Bike Computer from Evans Cycles, and it has undoubtedly made a significant impact on my rides. In this blog post, I will share my experience and impressions of this fantastic gadget, and why I think it’s worth considering for your next cycling investment.
The Wahoo Fitness ELEMNT Bolt is a sleek, aerodynamic GPS bike computer designed to provide accurate, real-time data on your speed, distance, elevation, and more. It has a user-friendly interface, making it easy for riders of all levels to use and customise. The device is compatible with a variety of sensors, including the Wahoo RPM Cycling Speed Sensor and Heart Rate Chest Monitor, both of which I’ve linked to my ELEMNT Bolt to obtain comprehensive data on my rides.
One of the standout features of the ELEMNT Bolt is its connectivity. It pairs effortlessly with your smartphone, allowing you to receive notifications, follow routes, and even control your smart trainer. The device also works seamlessly with popular cycling apps such as Strava, so you can easily upload your ride data and compare your performance with friends.
Setting up the ELEMNT Bolt is a breeze, thanks to its companion app. The step-by-step guide ensures you have your device ready to go in no time. Once it’s up and running, you can customise the data fields displayed on the screen to suit your preferences, allowing you to focus on the metrics that matter most to you.
The battery life of the ELEMNT Bolt is another impressive feature. With up to 15 hours of usage on a single charge, you won’t have to worry about it dying mid-ride. Moreover, the device is water-resistant, meaning it can withstand the unpredictable British weather.
As a safety-conscious rider, I appreciate the addition of the Live Track feature. It allows your friends and family to track your location in real-time during your ride, giving you added peace of mind. Plus, with the LED lights on the side of the device, you can quickly glance at your performance metrics, such as speed or heart rate, without having to look down at the screen.
The ELEMNT Bolt’s mapping and navigation capabilities are equally impressive. The device provides turn-by-turn directions, and the preloaded global maps ensure you’re never lost, whether you’re cycling through the countryside or exploring a new city. Additionally, you can create or import routes from other platforms, like Strava, and follow them on the ELEMNT Bolt’s clear and easy-to-read display.
In summary, the Wahoo Fitness ELEMNT Bolt Bike Computer has exceeded my expectations. Its ease of use, customisability, and compatibility with various sensors and apps make it an invaluable companion for any cyclist. If you’re looking to upgrade your current cycling setup, I wholeheartedly recommend giving the ELEMNT Bolt a try. It has genuinely transformed my rides and provided me with invaluable insights into my performance.
