*Best in Class*

While some brands may go with flashy extras and novel features, Wahoo has instead spent its research and development on creating a computer with a clear and easy-to-use setup and display. Yes, the Elemnt will crank through even the most complex data (in fact, it’s the only computer other than the Pioneer that will compute pedaling vectors), but its presentation and navigation sets it apart. Sporting an excellent screen-to-device-size ratio, the crystal clear black-and-white display uses easy-to-read digits with bars of colored LEDs across the side and top of the screen to intuitively present non-numerical info like heart rate and power zones. Super easy to set up with the fantastic smartphone app, the device connections on the Elemnt are also unsurprisingly rock solid. As Wahoo is known for constant development, expect the Elemnt’s software to grow as sensor technology does too.
