The Details

"Using a bike computer shouldn't be the hardest part of the ride." Seems simple right? While this quote from Chip Hawkins (Chief Wahooligan) seems incredibly obvious, we all know it's far easier said than done. You can talk to anyone, read all the GPS reviews and forums going, there are three consistent and constant complaints that always crop up: functionality, reliability, and ease of use.

With the Elemnt Roam, Wahoo have taken what cyclists loved about the first Elemnt and delivered a design that has been optimised and primed for performance. So it's basically an Elemnt, only it's jam packed with incredible new features, even better functionality, and is more durable than anything to have come before it. Oh, and it's got a state of the art 31.6mm Gorilla™ glass anti-scratch colour screen which boasts the ability to be seen without being hindered by any condition thanks to its Ambient Light Sensing; what's not to love?

Sitting on your bars via Wahoo's patented integrated mount system which was introduced with the Elemnt Bolt, the Elemnt Roam is guaranteed to look at home on any bike. Also first introduced on the Bolt and now featured on the Roam due to its success are the the two sets of LEDs which illuminate and flash to provide at-a-glance updates and alerts. The Roam's legibility is unrivalled by any other GPS currently on the market thanks to its flush-mounted LCD design, large screen, use of selective colour to highlight key terrain features and performance metrics, and its perfect view zoom that focuses in on ride and location data.

But it's what hasn't been featured on the GPS' that have come before the Roam that makes the adventure-seeker in all of us a bit giddy. There are six new ways to navigate your way around the earth with Wahoo's latest GPS, which include the ability to navigate to saved locations or a point on the map, getting navigated home via the fastest route, and automatically getting re-routed back on course if you divert of find yourself lost - all directly from your Roam.

  • Route To Start - Find the optimal route back to where your ride started
  • Back On Track - Get re-routed back to your active route
  • Retrace Your Route - Retrace your route back to the beginning
  • Take Me To - Create a route to a saved or selected location
  • Get Me Started - Create turn-by-turn directions to the start of your ride
  • Saved Locations - Create a route to your preferred locations

Still possessing the same integration with the most popular cycling apps such as Ride with GPS, Strava, Training Peaks, as well as possessing Sram Red and Shimano Di2 compatibility, the Roam ensures that there has never been an easier time to explore, and for the already proclaimed Wahooligans amongst us, the new Roam enhances your indoor as well as your outdoor experience with Kickr Control and Climb compatibility.

While gravel cycling is emerging as the next big thing the bike world, the burning desire to explore and improve your performance is not a new thing when it comes to cycling. Whether you're riding on tarmac, the trail, or something completely different, the objectives remain the same, which is why Wahoo have billed their new Elemnt Roam as "a computer designed for a new need, not a new breed."

Our Verdict

Industry Reviews

bike-radar-review

"The Roam feels more like a hopped-up Bolt (which is no bad thing) than a new standalone unit. The colour screen doesn’t really add much, but the resolution gains over the Bolt do enhance things, especially when it comes to mapping."
