I use the Wahoo Elemnt Bolt V2 and it’s finally reduced - this is the bike computer that convinced me to switch from Garmin

I've used the Elemnt Bolt V2 for my longest gravel ride and an trans-Alpine epic and it never skipped a beat

Wahoo has been trotting out some impressive deals on its indoor trainers and older model head units in recent weeks (you can check out our full Wahoo deals page for the details on all of those) but notably absent - until now - from any discounts was the Wahoo Elemnt Bolt V2, which is arguably the best value bike computer on the market today. 

Of course, you can go cheaper than the latest Bolt. For instance, the Garmin Edge 130 undercuts it in the USA at $191.02 and in the UK at £119.00 at Amazon. But in terms of the features you get for the price - particularly regarding the navigation - there is little that comes close. Especially when a further $50 / £50 is knocked off the asking price, as per the deal the brand unveiled today - direct from Wahoo.

USA: was $279.99, now $229.99 at Wahoo

UK: was £249.99, now £199.99 at Wahoo

Compact, intuitive, great battery life, straightforward navigation - and much cheaper than Garmin's new Edge 540 or Hammerhead's Karoo 2 - the Elemnt Bolt V2 is a cracking bike computer. There are reasons not to buy it, you might want even longer battery life or a bigger screen, but its value is really unrivalled.
