Wahoo ELEMNT Trailforks Integration

Wahoo Announces Trailforks Integration

Outside announces new partnership with Wahoo's ELEMNT GPS bike computers

March 7, 2023

London, March 7, 2023 – Today, Wahoo announced the integration of Outside Interactive’s Trailforks mapping app into ELEMNT range of GPS bike computers.

Trailforks supplies the best possible mapping experience for planning rides and navigating trail networks. Within the app, users can discover trails near them, plan and track rides, find local events, and get the latest information about trail conditions. In addition, Trailforks provides a multitude of features including recommended rides, heatmaps, and trail reports to help discover the best trails & routes to ride around the world.

This new integration feature will allow users to sync routes from their Trailforks account directly to the Wahoo ELEMNT Bike Computers and ELEMNT Companion App. Users will be able to authorise their Trailforks account via the ELEMNT Companion app, and once authorised, all routes associated with the user’s Trailforks account will sync to the companion app and to the ELEMNT Computer. Synced items from Trailforks will include Routes (curated routes from Trailforks database), Rideplans (user-created routes), and Ridelogs (historic rides in Trailforks that can be retraced). Trailforks Pro, the upgrade option, is not required to access this feature.

The paid Trailforks Pro option allows users to have unlimited access in the app to offline trail maps worldwide, and access every feature Trailforks has to offer.

This comes hot on the heels of our latest launch, the second iteration of our ELEMNT ROAM, which launched in October 2022. This is the most powerful and intuitive GPS bike computer to be added to the Wahoo ecosystem. The new device was updated to include dual band GPS which delivers an enhanced and more accurate navigation experience especially when riding in areas where GPS signal can be limited – such as forests or mountainous areas.

A 64 colour high contrast screen and an upgrade to the memory capacity of the ROAM to 32GB – allows users to manage and store a greater number of regional map packs and stored routes. A 17 hour, long lasting battery life also means it is easier than ever for riders to stay on course for longer.

Partnering with Wahoo to provide this data on the ELEMNT bike computer moves us one step closer to our ultimate goal to ‘Get Everyone Outside’.—Todd Neumarker, Technical Director at Trailforks

Beyond its mapping and navigation capabilities, the ELEMNT ROAM links seamlessly into Wahoo’s connected ecosystem of indoor and outdoor training solutions. Wahoo X users can now broadcast MTB and gravel specific workouts directly to their ELEMNT ROAM computer, to be completed out on the trails. When looking to tackle workouts indoors, Wahoo X subscribers can benefit from the new ‘Dunoon Crossover’ road on Wahoo RGT, a brand new gravel ‘Real Road’. Singletrack off road sections and resistance changes based on the ride surface, bring a whole new experience to virtual riding and racing for the very first time. Riders must now time their sprints and overtakes heading into the singletrack section so they’re not caught at the back.
