[Amazon.ca] Wahoo Elemnt Bolt cycling gps/computer - $230 (all time low)

Wahoo Elemnt Bolt cycling computer/gps
I’ve had my eye on this for a while and noticed that the price today dropped to $230. Ships and sold by Amazon.ca

Next lowest price is $300, according to CCC, so we are $70 below that. Seems like a good deal if you need a cycling gps computer

Interesting, was going to hold out to replace my Edge 800 but at this price I think I'll pull the trigger on this.

Wonder if Wahoo has a new unit coming.

If Wahoo Elemnt Bolt had re-routing feature - it would be awesome. But right now if you miss your turn and get lost, its up to you to find your route back...

Still waiting for Roam to go on sale...

Great deal! I personally prefer my Garmin due to the ecosystem and fact that I don't need to pay for Strava to get the data I want (the Garmin Connect platform is good enough for me).

It was $399 during prime days. I like having a head unit so I can see stats or directions infant of me rather than glancing at my wrist.

Great device I have this for the past 2 years still works great! No complaint. When I bought it for around $500, it included a speedometer and heart sensor strap thingie from wahoo that records into the bike computer and syncs with strava.

It's impossible to get lost after missing a turn because there's a thick line that tracks where you come from and where you need to be to get back on track. Point of having a gps bike computer is you never really get lost. Plus it alerts you of missing a turn.

I've never gone too off my route so don't know about re routing, never been an issue for me.

Edge 130 was like $130 on prime days.


I was on the fence last year but decided to stick with Garmin and I'm really happy with it.

DCRainMaker states they're basically the same, except wahoo you're forced to use an app to modify the screens.

I had the element bolt for a short time in June but I returned it and bought the edge 530. I found the element lacking in certain areas, like how you couldn't get turn by turn navigation unless you upload the route with aps like ridewithgps (which is a pay per month sort of service). If turn by turn navi isn't your thing the element did everything else we'll. The live tracking on it was leaps and bounds better than Garmin according to my wife. Where Garmin live track would stop working randomly the wahoo would work flawlessly and in real time.

I have the BOLT and use the free version of RidewithGPS to map my routes. The BOLT loads your routes through WiFi and you just select it. It's a 2 step process but RidewithGPS's mapping features through a browser are really good.

I personally paid a one time fee to Komoot for it's UI simplicity and ease of plotting routes and sync the routes to the wahoo. Then I have turn by turn navigation.
