Wahoo have launched an update to their popular ELEMNT BOLT cycling computer
The new BOLT features a 64-colour display and now has smart navigation features - previously only offered on Wahoo's top-of-the-line ELEMNT ROAM.
Thanks to the new features, the ELEMNT BOLT now automatically reroutes you when you stray from a planned route, lets you change destinations, route back to the start, and retrace your rides right from the computer, without having to use your phone.
An updated user interface offers customisable, colour-highlighted fields to make it simple to focus on specific data metrics, while Wahoo have also added an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts the backlight to make sure that the screen is always easy to see, even on dawn commutes or dusky rides.
As with the ELEMNT ROAM, the revised BOLT features an aerodynamic body that integrates with the mount to provide a sleek unified profile.
Quick View LEDs on the top of the screen provide turn-by-turn directions, signal approaching Strava Live segments, and provide notifications.
With a claimed 15-hour runtime and onboard memory increased to 16GB, the BOLT is designed to make exploring simple with millions of miles of roads and trails already preloaded.
When paired with the Wahoo ELEMNT app, riders can easily customise their data screens, sync routes, and analyse data. BOLT's IPX7 waterproof body is designed to withstand the rainiest rides or even the occasional dunking on a botched river crossing.
"BOLT has always been known for its sleek form factor, as well as its ease-of-use," said Wahoo ELEMNT Product Manager Megan Powers.
"We're excited to add features that Wahooligans have been clamouring for, including a thoughtful use of colour on the display, and Smart Navigation in a package that looks great on any bike. Like all of our ELEMNT GPS devices, BOLT integrates into the whole Wahoo ecosystem, whether you're using the Multisport Handover mode to seamlessly track data in triathlon, or to control your KICKR."
For the 2021 season, 11 professional cycling teams will race and train with BOLT, including BORA-HANSGROHE, Deceuninck-Quick Step, AG2R, Arkea Samsic, Alpecin-Fenix, Ale BTC Ljubljana, Rally, Team DSM, Cofidis, Trek Segafredo, and Team Twenty24.
Some of the world's best triathletes will also ride with BOLT including Jan Frodeno, Lucy Charles, Alistair and Johnny Brownlee, Heather Jackson, and Sarah Crowley.
The new ELEMNT BOLT is available for purchase now with an RRP of £249.99. Find out more at www.wahoofitness.com.
