WAHOO ELEMNT BOLT

With my first introduction with the TICKR years ago, being a Wahooligan has been a standard aspect of my training technology. Wahoo products just work right out of the box and require very minimal to no set up. There seamless integration is truly appreciated. The Bolt has a slightly small 2.2-inch screen as its little brother ELEMENT (2.7) with a lot more features to offer.  The display was easy to read eve in multiple environmental changes. The GPS integration is impressive with a turn by turn navigation and wireless route downloads. The 3 tactile and east to press buttons are simple to toggle, navigate and set your custom metric fields, text/phone alerts and KICKR controls with of 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 curated data fields and 170+ data fields to configure your personalized preference screens. Seamless synchronization and thru ANT+, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi to your all your 3rd party apps. Pair with all your power, cadence/speed, heart sensors, Oxygen and KICKR/SNAP trainers. The Bolt also controls non-Wahoo Smart Trainers that are equipped with ANT+ FE-C. Wahoo’s companion app automates configuring, pair and customization of all your data. The unit was specifically designed to reduce air resistance at 50% less and increase speed (12.6 seconds) on the pavement thru time tested aerodynamic properties. The USB rechargeable battery gives you up to 15 hours of battery life. The Elemnt Bolt is an excellent cycling and GPS computer that is affordably priced with optimized design, integration and simple to set for the ideal metric dashboard experience.
