Stick-On Wahoo RPM Bluetooth Cadence Sensor Now Shipping

wahoo-rpm-bluetooth-cadence-sensorWe spotted this at Interbike, and now Wahoo Fitness’ RPM bluetooth cadence sensor is shipping, and there’s a bit more info about it now. It’ll come with both stick-on or sleeved-and-zip-tied mounting solutions, letting you use it across multiple cranksets if you don’t mind adding a couple grams of ugly to eschew the sticky backing.

If you’re already using your smartphone and a smattering of bluetooth accessories to track your ride data, or you prefer your speed sensor on the fork, this one is a simple way to add cadence to the mix. Retail is $49.95, weight is just 7 grams.

If you’re not already fully in bed with BT but like the idea of using an app to record it all, we’d recommend their Speed/Cadence dual sensor since it’s just $10 more and combines both metrics into a single transmitter. Get ‘em at WahooFitness.com or your local bike shop. Both will pair with Wahoo’s own app, Strava and MapMyRide. It uses a coin cell battery that should be good for up to two years riding.

Unfortunately, those “Wahoo’s” are still only building to the MAC/IPHONE platform. WHATTTTT? HELLO!

Cool, now add power for an extra $20, and they’ll own an even bigger market. Me thinks they are working on something…

This would be awesome if cadence mattered.

I really wanted to like Wahoo. I got the RFLKT+ and it drops the HR signal and the Speed/cadence sensor all the time. All their support could say: Well it’s know to happen and the’ll the engineers know about. Basically you can’t fix it, and you must force quit the app and start over.

Does anybody else notice something looking really off in that photo?

Dockboy - 12/27/13 - 12:55pm

@AlanM – Nope. It’s the non-drive crankarm from the drive side.

@Dockboy, ahh, depth perception and cropping got me.

@DockBoy – The Q factor looks a little off though, by about 3mm. ;)

This may be a dumb question, but is this compatible with the Garmin 500? Would be nice to get something sleeker than the GSC-10 for cadence.
