The latest Smart Light Control transforms ELEMNT computers into a central hub for bike lighting management. Cyclists can now sync their device with ANT+ compatible smart lights from brands like Bontrager and Garmin, enabling control functions such as toggling lights and adjusting modes right from their ELEMNT. With automatic light activation at the ride’s outset and deactivation at its conclusion, riders can maintain focus on the road safely.


Wahoo has also introduced Music Control to the ELEMNT series, enabling playback control directly from the bike computer. Featuring a dedicated music control page offering options like play/pause, skip, and volume adjustment, riders can enjoy their favorite tunes, podcasts, or audiobooks without the hassle of handling their phone.
