Cycling, Gadgets


Workout apps and connected fitness devices company Wahoo Fitness is introducing a new bike computer called the ELEMNT MINI.

It joins the flagship ELEMNT, and the aerodynamic ELEMNT BOLT GPS cycling computers. The all-new ELEMNT MINI is a standalone wireless bike computer that is designed to be used with a companion app to capture all of your ride data like cadence and heart rate as well as providing call/text notifications.

It can also be used to enable friends or family members to follow ride progress with Wahoo’s newly enhanced Live Track capability.

Originally introduced in 2016, the companion app streamlines how consumers interact with their bike computer, dramatically simplifying setup, customisation and connectivity, according to the manufacturer.

The ELEMNT MINI is equipped with a streamlined, two-button interface and a 1.8inch diagonal LCD screen and tips the scales at 31.2g. It is powered by Bluetooth and ANT+ technologies, making it compatible with all Wahoo sensors including the RPM Speed Sensor (included with the ELEMNT MINI), the RPM Cadence Sensor and the TICKR Heart Rate Monitor (sold separately) for cyclists looking to specifically tailor their data tracking needs.

At the heart of the ELEMNT MINI is Wahoo’s improved Live Track feature, which enables others to monitor the user’s current and travelled locations in real-time on a map, along with any data (speed, heart rate, cadence) being transmitted to their cycling computer.

Says Jose Mendez, Director of Product Management for Cycling Products at Wahoo Fitness:

“The new MINI is a key piece in the Wahoo ELEMNT bike computer portfolio. Thanks to the Wahoo ELEMNT Companion App we are bringing the powerful, yet simple Wahoo Fitness experience, to a whole new category of economy-minded cyclists while delivering much of the same data that our professional athletes demand.”

The Wahoo ELEMNT MINI is now available to buy at select specialty retailers and on WahooFitness.com for £79.99.
