Roam Update

We all know the Roam is imminent, but some more details have just arrived (Thanks to Cedric for the tip!). I have some screenshots of a webshop, and some details translated.


This is a Google translation...
Wahoo ELEMNT Roam
Wahoo Elemnt Roam is the latest shot of the Wahoo tribe. It comes new with a 2.7 "color display and a battery that holds power for up to 17 hours.
Navigation
The navigation part in it is super good whether you want to use GPS as turn-by-turn or just want to find the fastest way home Wahoo Elemnt is incredibly easy to set up using the Elemnt companion app where you can set up the pages of your computer and view history and share data.
Ambient Light sensor
There is a built-in light sensor so that the screen can automatically insert the light piece on the screen. This means that the screen will always appear clear.
Gorilla Glass Lens
On a Wahoo Elemnt Roam, the glass is made in a new Gorilla Glass that makes the screen super strong in the toughest conditions.
Integrated Out-Front Mount
There is of course a nice integrated outfront mount in the box when you buy a Wahoo Roam. It is super aerodynamic as you know it from Wahoo Elemnt Bolt. On Element Roam, however, you can also tighten its Elemnt Roam to the holder so that it becomes part of the bike. This means that it is not only stolen or smoked but also that you can have your computer mounted during weighing for the UCI race.

  7. found this –

    not much info though https://vimeo.com/329416522

    • Nice find. It doesn’t work not but I was able to view it a couple of times. Visually though, thought they would have done a better job at keeping the screen looking smudge free. Lol It was a little distracting.

    • Nice. Looks smooth but from what I understood of this promo video there’s nothing that makes this one really better than the Bolt in my opinion.

  8. Here is a direct link to Wahoo’s own web shop πŸ™‚
    I guess that the official announcement should not be long.

    • Link just goes to the website. Can you take screenshots?

      • Indeed, this page has already been taken down. I guess that Wahoo is following this blog (really sorry guys — can’t wait to order one πŸ™‚ )

  9. Sold my Bolt 2 weeks ago in anticipation of the Roam. So it’s getting a little harder to wait. πŸ˜‰
    Thanks for these finds Cedric!

  10. Not one person has mentioned the $480 price tag? I am trying to wait for this thing, but I will have an Edge 830 in a hot minute if they announce that as the price for this thing.
