See our long-term review of the Wahoo ELMENT Bolt here.
The Wahoo ELEMNT BOLT GPS Bike Computer is the first, fully aerodynamic GPS bike computer. Its unique design creates an integrated system of computer and mount which results in a highly aerodynamic system built to be on the front of your bicycle. Equipped with Bluetooth Smart and ANT+ dual-band technology, the ELEMNT Bolt pairs seamlessly with all of your cycling sensors. Set up data fields, customize profiles, track your performance and share your data with Wahoo's ELEMNT app. The ELEMNT BOLT was designed for performance and engineered for simplicity.
The device features three buttons that allow you to quickly navigate to what you want to see and toggle between screens. Choose from the following screens: workout view with a complete look at performance metrics, climb view to track ascents in real-time, map view to stay on course, live tracking, and more. The Bolt is the most integrated bike computer with the most popular electronic shifting systems including Shimano Di2, SRAM eTAP, FSA WE, and Campagnolo EPS.
Shimano Di2 also adds control with "hood" buttons that allow you to use your thumbs to change pages on your ELEMNT BOLT, hit the lap button, zoom in and out of data fields without ever taking your hands off the handlebars. The Wahoo ELEMNT BOLT GPS Bike Computer works with Strava Live Segments alerting you when you are coming up on a route or your best bike split. Upload your race course and race plan to the device via WiFi to get your target power and speed. Lastly, the BOLT GPS Bike Computer alerts you when important contacts are trying to reach you. The device will display text, email, and phone calls on the LED screen as long as you are riding with your smartphone.
