I reviewed Wahoo Fitness’ RFLKT cycling computer a while back, noting that the mounts were one of the weak points. Immediately after posting the review, the out-front style mount broke, too, when I leaned over the handlebars to check the QR skewer. It wasn’t much pressure on it, and it snapped far easier than any mount should have.
Speaking to the folks at Wahoo, they acknowledged the mounts could be better and hinted something was in the works. That was Sea Otter time, and now we’ve got the first pieces from the new designs. Their out-front mount gets reinforced where it counts, and there’s also a new mount that’ll clip into any official or 3rd Garmin-compatible mount, which we’re guessing will be the preferred option. I’m running it on the new K-Edge pro mount (shown above) and it’s a definite improvement.

Three mounts are now available (or shipping soon). From left to right: Stem mount, Garmin mount and out-front mount.
The big change is reinforcements at the clamp for the out-front mount. The new one is shown at top, notice the extended ridges wrapping around the base to the clamp. The original, shown broken on the bottom, had ridges that ended before reaching the clamp section, leaving just a thin, flat platform to support the computer and anything else that might accidentally press on it.
Garmin mount (5g), out-front (18g, with rubber insert for smaller diameter bars) and stem mount (11g).
