Attaching your ELEMNT BOLT to your Bike:

    The ELEMNT BOLT comes with two mounts to use, depending on your preference:

  • Stem Mount

Choose the mount that best suits your riding style so that you can easily see the screen and access the buttons safely. Take care when tightening to ensure that the ELEMNT BOLT will be secure during your ride. For best results, tighten periodically to maintain a secure hold.

Installing the Aero Out-Front Mount:

The Out-Front Mount consists of a single mount, secured with an allen key bolt(2.5mm).

NOTE: Allen key not supplied.

  1. Begin by removing/loosening the allen key bolt so the Out-Front Mount can slide over one side of your handlebars.
  2. When seated in your preferred location, replace/tighten the allen key bolt until the Out-Front Mount is securely fastened. The Wahoo logo should be facing upwards (and facing toward you if you were seated on the bike). Your mount is ready to use.

Installing the Aero Mount:

The Aero Out-Front Mount was designed to be used specifically with the ELEMNT BOLT to generate the most aerodynamic advantage. The Aero Out-Front Mount consists of a single mount, secured with an allen key bolt (3mm).

NOTE: Allen key not supplied.

Installing the Stem Mount:

    The Stem Mount consists of the following items:

  • 4 x zip-ties
  • Plastic Stem Mount
  • Rubber Mount insert
  1. Ensure that the Rubber Mount insert is sitting flush with the Plastic Stem Mount. The bike mount is now ready to be installed.
  2. Place the bike mount in alignment on the stem of your bicycle, ensuring that the rubber insert side is facing down and the Wahoo logo is on top and facing towards you (if you were seated on the bike).

    NOTE: This mount can also be installed on your handlebars if required.

  3. Thread two of the zip-ties through the holes provided in the bike mount and tighten securely around the bicycle stem.
  4. When tightened to your satisfaction, trim any excess zip-tie cables. Your mount is ready to use.

To install the ELEMNT BOLT on the bike mount:

  1. Align the ELEMNT BOLT mount connector (on the back of the ELEMNT BOLT) with the bike mount. The ELEMNT BOLT should be perpendicular to the bike mount, with the Wahoo logo on the ELEMNT BOLT facing away from you.

Other Features & Points to Note:

Battery Life:

The ELEMNT BOLT is charged by using the Micro USB cable provided. When fully charged, the ELEMNT BOLT will function for up to 15 hours.

NOTE: Running the backlight and LEDs continuously will diminish the battery at an accelerated rate. For maximal battery life, use the backlight only when necessary and turn off LED notifications.

Charging your Battery:

  1. Gently remove the silicon dust cap covering the charging port on your ELEMNT BOLT.
  2. Insert the plug of the Micro USB cable into the charging port.
  3. Connect the Micro USB cable to a suitable power source to charge. e.g. a computer USB port, or if using in conjunction with an AC adapter, to a wall outlet.
  4. When charged, remove the Micro USB cable from the charging port.
  5. Replace the silicon dust cap, ensuring that it is seated firmly to prevent moisture or dust from entering the device.

NOTE: For best results and battery life, always charge to full capacity when possible. Additionally, take care when handling the silicon dust cap. Always clean and dry the area surrounding the charging port thoroughly if it becomes wet or dirty, and do not plug into a power source until the area is free of moisture or debris. Corrosion and damage to the ELEMNT BOLT may occur if not handled correctly.

Uploading Workouts:

The workout information displayed on the ELEMNT BOLT at the end of your ride only represents a small portion of the data that is available for review. To access more information, upload your workouts to the app or your preferred compatible application or website.

Upload preferences are managed via the app. (Automatic upload of workouts can be selected via the Settings menu, and manual uploads can be managed via the Results menu.) Transfer of workouts occurs automatically or manually whenever a wifi signal is present, sending data to whichever apps or sites have been preauthorized to receive them. However, the Micro USB can also be used to manually transfer workout data from the ELEMNT BOLT to another device.

  • For PC users: Plug in your ELEMNT BOLT to your PC via the Micro USB and the internal memory will function just like a flash drive.

    NOTE: European Windows 10 requires a patch: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=19153

  • For Mac Users: An additional application is required to function as an interface - contact [email protected] for more information.

Updating your Device:

App & firmware updates will be installed automatically when a wifi signal is present. Alternatively, manual installation of app and firmware updates can be accessed via the Settings menu if required.

To perform a manual update:

  1. Open the Settings menu on the ELEMNT BOLT.
  2. Open System Info menu.
  3. Scroll down to the Version tab and select Check to perform a manual check for updates.
  4. Select Yes to check and download an update, if available. The Version information will read Up to Date if no updates are available at this time.

NOTE: Automatic updates will only be performed after initial installation or just prior to powering off, to prevent interfering with your use of the ELEMNT BOLT.

Alerts/Notifications:

The ELEMNT BOLT can work in conjunction with your smartphone and display notifications during your workout, as per your preference. If activated, phone calls, SMS and email alerts (iOS only) will be temporarily displayed during your ride, and be accessible from the Settings menu. Dismiss each alert from the Settings menu to view additional alerts. Turn this function on or off by accessing the Settings menu on your app.

NOTE: This feature requires you to have your phone with you during your ride.

Measuring Temperature:

The ELEMNT BOLT measures temperature during your workout, but occasionally may display temperatures that differ from the true temperature of your surroundings. For example, this may occur when the device is placed in direct sunlight, is being charged via an external battery or is subject to sudden changes in temperature.

Multiple Same-Sensors & Data Management:

In the event that multiple same-information sensors are being employed (e.g. two speed sensors), the ELEMNT BOLT uses a quality of data hierarchy to determine which sensors will be used to gather data during your workout. In this scenario, if one sensor should fail, the ELEMNT BOLT will automatically switch to the next data source and continue data gathering. Manual selection of a duplicated data source is not available.

Adding Sensors:

Add sensors to gather more information during your workout and get a more comprehensive report about your ride. Sensors can gather a multitude of information such as speed, heart rate, cadence, power and much more. Adding a new sensor to your ELEMNT BOLT is as simple as waking up your sensor & opening the Settings menu to access the Add a Sensor function. Place the sensor close to the ELEMNT BOLT and you’ll be prompted to save after a few seconds. If you have many close sensors then you will see a More option (bottom right button).

If you start your workout without waking up your additional paired sensors, you can still wake them and they will begin to send data. Additionally, you can pair a new sensor at any time, even during a workout.
