Collective Reward #058 is our final giveaway in this round of more than a dozen Collective Reward prize packages, and we’ve teamed up with Wahoo to offer an ELEMNT ROAM GPS unit to two randomly selected members of our Bikepacking Collective, a $379 value. As a reminder, this Friday is the deadline to get signed up for the Bikepacking Collective to be automatically entered to win one of 44 prizes, plus receive the upcoming fourth issue of The Bikepacking Journal and Alex Hotchin’s hand-illustrated map of the Baja Divide in the mail.
We’ve been quite impressed with Wahoo’s powerful, intuitive, compact GPS units since they first came across our radar. Cass reviewed the original ELEMNT back in 2018 and had lots of good things to say about it. And we even named the ELEMNT ROAM one of last year’s top tools and gadgets in our 2019 Bikepacking Gear of the Year Awards.
Wahoo ELEMNT ROAM GPS At a Glance
Without a doubt, there’s a lot to like about the ELEMNT ROAM. It boasts a bright and clear 2.7″ color display, a minimal number of buttons that are easy to use, and a respectable battery life of around 15-20 hours, based on our testing. Paired with the Wahoo app, all of the ELEMNT ROAM’s menus are fully customizable, meaning you don’t have to waste time working your way though unnecessary sub-menus. Its ambient light sensor smartly adjusts the screen’s brightness and toggles the backlight on and off, meaning your route is always visible on your handlebars. And we really liked the included out front mount, too. The ELEMNT ROAM actually packs in far more features than we can fit here, and you can see the full list (and additional details) over at WahooFitness.com.
