‘Ready To Ride’ update available on Wahoo ELEMNT bike computers

Wahoo Fitness, the leading endurance athlete fitness technology company, has announced the brand new ‘Ready to Ride’ update to their ELEMNT bike computers, as part of a continual series of developments and software updates to enhance functionality, value and Wahooligans’ cycling experience.

This update follows closely in the wake of Wahoo’s launch of the groundbreaking KICKR MOVE which delivers an entirely new dimension of ride-feel, and the KICKR BIKE SHIFT – Wahoo shows no sign of slowing down on innovation.

In the last 12 months alone, 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 (software timeline included below).

Ready to Ride is a new menu screen on 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 their athletes with easier access to features they value and love. At its core, is a revised menu which will be optionally shown to the user when the computer starts. The revised user interface makes it easy to load a route or planned workout and check that the correct sensors are paired. You can also effortlessly view other key data such as GPS signal status, WiFi status, phone connection, and time of day.

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 you can keep an eye on your battery charge throughout your ride. Post ride, you’ll also receive a handy alert on your ride summary screen if the ELEMNT or any paired sensor needs to be charged. 

The full Ready to Ride ELEMNT updates will be available on the ELEMNT ROAM V2 and ELEMNT BOLT V2. Original ELEMNT BOLT and ROAM owners will benefit from a restructured menu maintaining the existing theme. 

Chip Hawkins, Founder of Wahoo, said: “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.”
