Wahoo joins forces with Trailforks adding mapping to Elemnt range
Wahoo, the brand best known for its range of cycling computers and smart trainers has announced that it's partnering with Trailforks to offer a range of handy new features within its Elemnt range of computers.
- How to choose the best dropper post for your mountain bike
- The best mountain bike handlebar grips you can buy - tried and tested
- Which MTB freehub body do I need? XD, Micro Spline or HG?
For those not in the know, Trailforks is a mobile app that uses user-generated data to provide maps, helping riders find new trails and navigate trail networks. The app itself comes with a range of features to help riders do so, such as heat maps and trail reports.
Wahoo's new Trailforks integration feature will allow riders to sync their routes to Elemnt computers and the Companion App. Synced items will include curated routes from Trailfork's database, Rideplans, or user created routes and Ridelogs (historic rides that can be retraced). Users don't need to upgrade to Trailforks Pro in order to take advantage of this new feature.
“The Trailforks mapping platform provides thousands of bike routes curated by local riders. In addition to these planned routes, the Trailforks platform hosts race courses and generates routes based upon popularity. 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 of mapping for Trailforks.
