Wahoo has announced the newest update to its range of ELEMNT bike computers called “Ready to Ride”, the latest in a series of developments and software updates that are designed to enhance functionality.
“In the last 12 months, the ELEMNT functionality has been continually updated – this has seen the introduction of Summit Freeride, Summit Segments, support for off road routes with Trailforks, along with the ability to complete workouts outdoors via Wahoo SYSTM. As the ELEMNT bike computers continue to develop via regular software updates they continue to solidify themselves as the best value proposition to customers,” says Wahoo.
Ready to Ride is a new menu screen for ELEMNT bike computers that provides users with fast, intuitive access to all of the frequently needed pre-ride functions including the sensor menu, route loading and battery status.
Ready to Ride was inspired and developed by user feedback and builds on Wahoo’s mission to provide athletes with easier access to features. At its core, is a revised menu that will be optionally shown to the user when the computer starts. From there, the revised user interface makes it easy to load a route or planned workout and check that the correct sensors are paired. Users can also effortlessly view other key data such as GPS signal status, WiFi status, phone connection, and time of day.
Additionally, as part of the Ready to Ride feature, the battery status for electronic shifting systems (Shimano Di2, SRAM eTAP) is now a data field which can be shown on any workout screen so users can keep an eye on their battery charge throughout your ride. Moreover, users also receive a handy alert on their ride summary screen if the ELEMNT or any paired sensor needs to be charged post ride.
The full Ready to Ride updates will be available for the ELEMNT ROAM V2 and ELEMNT BOLT V2, while original ELEMNT BOLT and ROAM owners will benefit from a restructured menu maintaining the existing theme.
“A core pillar of Wahoo’s ethos is to help build the better athletes in all of us. By listening to our users and offering new updates that meet their needs, we can continue to support their development as athletes and Wahooligans,” says Chip Hawkins, Founder of Wahoo.To get your
