Wahoo ELEMNT BOLT - First Look

Just over 12 months down the track from the Wahoo ELEMNT hitting shelves comes the Wahoo ELEMNT BOLT.

Addressing the unique needs of the performance-driven rider, ELEMNT BOLT pairs the ELEMNT’s groundbreaking ease of use and powerful performance with a form factor designed to blend as seamlessly with your bike as it does with your training and racing.

In a nutshell, Wahoo have taken the consumer feedback from the original ELEMNT and packed it into smaller, lighter, and according to their press releases, a more aerodynamic package. 

I've been lucky enough to have some hands on with the ELEMNT BOLT just a few hours prior to the official announcement.... let's see how it stacks up:

Thanks for the review. One question, I have an Garmin edge 1000 right now. Is there an improvements for me if I should switch to Wahoo Elemnt?

It depends on the functions you use, want to use, what one offers over the other. Entirely up to you mate.

Hi Shane

Thanks for the review. I love the Bolt's desing and quality fel. Unfortunately I haven't been able to pair my Android phone to the Bolt. Something wrong with the phone I think, as it won't scan the Bolt's digital image. I noticed on the Wahoo support site that they haven't tested the Elemnt with certain models. Just putting it on record in case anyone else has this issue.
