Wahoo RFLKT+ Now Shipping, Bridges ANT+ Devices to your iPhone & Adds Strava Compatibility
The original Wahoo RFKLT computer acted as a slave monitor for your iPhone, displaying the selected ride data on the screen along with controls for your music. While the company also sold Bluetooth speed and cadence sensors, many of us already had ANT+ devices or were eyeing the massive gamut of them available, particularly power meters.
Wahoo sensed the need and launched the RFLKT+ through Kickstarter, aimed at bridging the gap – literally and technologically. The “plus” version cycling computer acts as a wireless bridge between the two transmission formats, converting ANT+ sensor data into BT, beaming it to your iPhone to plug into your choice of apps, then spit back out to the RFLKT+’s screen. They even built in a barometric altimeter, leaving no stone unturned in the quest to make your iPhone the center of your cycling system.
As Wahoo’s grown, so has the app selection that’ll work with RFLKT. You can now stream data to its screen from Strava, MapMyFitness, Cyclemeter and more (full list here). Retail is $149, just $20 more than the original. Check the full bullet point feature list below…
