Wahoo has been consistently rolling out new features for the excellent ELEMNT GPS bike computer.

The latest addition is handy for people like me that quite often don’t plan a route before a ride. The Summit Freeride enables Summit Segments for all rides, without the need for a cyclist to use a pre-loaded route. Summit Freeride now automatically detects climbs and displays in-depth information about upcoming, in-progress and completed climbs.  Riders can even filter climbs ahead by level of difficulty, helping to conserve energy for the climbs that will require the most effort.

Summit Freeride works by utilising the pre-installed maps and elevation data to scan the cyclist’s road, calculate the elevation profile ahead and detect upcoming climbs. Once a climb is detected, the user will be alerted when approaching the start and it will be shown in the upcoming climb list. While on a climb if the rider turns onto a new road and continues to climb, the ELEMNT will dynamically adjust, recalculating and extending the climb. Summit Freeride previews of the elevation ahead for the rider providing valuable information to enable better pacing from start to finish.When a detected climb is completed, it will be added to the completed climbs list. 

Summit Freeride will be available for use on the latest versions of the ELEMNT ROAM and  ELEMNT BOLT Bike Computers beginning Tuesday May 2nd 2023.
