First Look: New Wahoo Elemnt Roam

Comments Comments

Wahoo Fitness have announced the latest model in their lineup, the new ELEMNT ROAM, the brand’s third GPS cycling computer and first with a colour screen.

Offering expanded navigation features and sporting a new form factor, Wahoo say the ROAM is designed to help cyclists ride further, longer, and explore new roads or trails.

The ROAM features a clear 2.7” colour display and 17+ hour battery life and connects to the ELEMNT smartphone app for initial setup and ongoing management.

The ROAM includes an ambient light sensor that automatically turns the screen backlight on or off and adjusts the brightness of the screen.

Like the BOLT there's an integrated out-front mount that gives ROAM a clean, sleek look. ROAM’s interface includes several new Smart Navigation features accessible directly on the computer, including - 

Get Me Started -- Navigates cyclists to the start of their route

Back On Track -- Navigates cyclists back to their route if they take a wrong turn

Take Me To -- Allows cyclists to select a location on their ROAM using new pan and zoom

functionality, and get directions to that location

Saved Locations -- Easily route to locations saved on ROAM

Route To Start -- Find the shortest route back to the start of your ride

Retrace Route -- Reverse your route to navigate back to the start along the original route.

The new GPS cycling computer is available now for an RRP of $599.95.

Other Wahoo ELEMNT GPS computers include the ELEMNT ($449.95), ELEMNT BOLT ($399.95), and ELEMNT MINI ($149.95). Wahoo recently released the ELEMNT BOLT Limited Edition in the popular pink and blue colours to better complement any bike and kit also at $399.95.

Shimano may have been late to the game releasing their first 12-speed drivetrain, but after spending some trail-time aboard it, there's no denying that the new XTR is worth the wait.

Focus has approached the E-MTB category in a markedly different way to its rivals by focusing on bike first and battery second. Is it the right approach?

Like them or loathe them, the E-MTB is here to stay and whether you are an elite racer or weekend FROTHER there is a place in everyone’s garage for one of these beasts.
