    Best bike computer so far

    • Written by from Oak Brook

    I've had a few over the years and this one is the easiest for setup and easiest to use. Easily exports to all your other tracking apps, no need to lose your existing data, best of all worlds. Also no connection issues...ever.

    Brilliant Biking Bonus

    • Written by from Bury

    We all know how poor the battery life of an iPhone is - totally useless for a long bike ride. The RFLKT is ace - sits on your handlebars telling your vital stats. Display is totally customisable to show speed, cadence, heart rate, etc.

    Pure brilliant!

    Battery saver

    • Written by from Poole

    Great screen to show workout. Battery lasts a year. Saves iphone battery. Could do 7 hour etape with some juice spare. Pairs to speed and heart monitor and uploads easily to Strava now. If it broke I'd replace it straight away.

    Great!

    • Written by from Eden Prairie

    I use RFLKT exclusively. Works best with wahoo fitness running in the background and screen off. I wish it were supported better by MapMyRide or Strava. However post-ride updating of either is a breeze.

    Love it

    • Written by from Megen

    I've been using the rflkt+ for a few months now and haven't noticed any issues. I love to be able to control my phone right from my handlebars. The extra battery usage is noticeable, so for anything over 4 hours I'm taking an external battery pack. With the battery pack my legs are definitely the ones to run out first (12+ hours).

    kills battery

    • Written by from Mill Valley

    Great product in terms of functionality. It does everything I wanted it to do. But it completely drains the phone battery at a rate that makes me panic. I don't like having to worry about not having a phone available if need be. If all your rides are under 3 hours you'll be fine as long as you are not also trying to listen to music or use the GPS on your phone.

    There is nothing more annoying than having put a 50 mile ride in and having your phone die and all the data lost on the last 2 miles!

    Has the potential, but not there yet

    • Written by from LONDON

    I love the concept of the rflkt+ but in practice I have found it to be frustrating. I think with time and software updates it will mature.

    With an iPhone 4s I managed to get through 100% battery in 3 hours. With strava or wahoo fitness alone I manage to get a 5 hr ride and still have 40%+ remaining. Also with the phone in the back pocket it regularly disconnects, which sometimes takes a while to notice and you lose your data for that period (I have a duotrap speed/cadence sensor). People say move it but it is hard to find a decent jersey with a front pocket, and what am I suppose to do with all my other jerseys? A guy I cycle with has a garmin 500, and although it can also be frustrating (slow) it is less so than the rflkt+

    On a side note one of the rflkt mounts with the rubber bands holds the iPhone nicely up the front. My saddle bag is too small for my phone and but did try another and it still disconnected.

    True price = reflkt+ (£109) + jersey with front pocket (£50) or quad lock mount (£50) so £159

    I think it's a product that should be closer to £70 and have a better Bluetooth antenna.

    Personally I wish I'd waited to see if it matures and put up with a basic display and an ant+ dongle for my phone.

    simple brilliance, update software and enjoy

    • Written by from Bromley

    the primary use for me is distance, post ride maps (for myself not the greater world) and music control. Rather than use my bose headphone to control the music off the cord i find the RFLKT to be safer, quicker and easier to control. Great unit and I updated the software straight out the box prior to riding. As its bluetooth and battery life of gadgets is limited I attached my morhie juice pack to my phone which is stored either in a jacket, shorts or under saddle bag. Great price.

    Great device.

    • Written by from Rolvsøy

    I love this device. I have very little battery drain. It consumes around 1% power for a half an hour ride. But I recommend getting the speed/cadence sensor for accurate speed and distance measurement.

    I use this with iPhone 5s. I had a Garmin edge 800 which broke and I couldn't afford a new one. The RFLKT is an ok replacement but far from as good as the Edge.

    The best full package

    • Written by from Chilliwack

    I have started using this App 3-4 times a week. I works flawlessly with my Bluetooth devices (heart rate monitor, cadence and speed and RFLKT+)
    Great data collection and on screen retrieval. Also uploads easily to where all my other exercise is recorded.
    A must if you are using any other wahoo product.

    Great product

    • Written by from Taylor Lake Village

    Using this for routine workouts, 3-4 times a week. Excellent capture of data.
    Using Mio Alpha heart rate watch with the wahoo device. Uploads to strava well.
    Very pleased.

    Good in concept

    • Written by from Issaquah

    Rflkt is a great idea but in practice is clunky and adds complexity. GPS vs odometer vs google maps (bike routing)differ by about 20%, the battery drain on the phone makes it useful only for rides under a few hours, and there is no smoothing of data inputs. As an example of the latter, it thinks I had a peak cadence of 209 on my commute. I wish the display had more flexibility.

    On the plus side I appreciate dropbox sync and access to the raw data so I can do further processing.

    Fit for purpose

    • Written by from Bulimba

    Did a three hour ride using Wahoo as the display and Strava running as well. Phone used 18% of the battery and did not miss a beat.
    Paused and activated two or three times from the monitor without touching the phone (5c) and got all my heart rate and zones at a touch (hard push!) of a button. Not possible before without holding the phone in one hand and trying to ride hard.
    Agree it is difficult to remove from the mount but I rarely do this and I think there is a twist off mount anyway?
    Buttons a little stiff but not a big deal. Always use cable ties but the rubber helps get sensors positioned easily before you put the ties on. Definitely use the ties on the stem mounting as some force is needed to push buttons which will move the mount around if use rubber bands only.
    I am still refining the screen layouts/order which is great if you like having the ability to design the layout of the inputs to suit your own needs or just like playing with it!
    I thought the displays we're going to be difficult to see in direct sunlight but no issue at all.
    Great product - highly recommend if you use phone apps.

    Great device

    • Written by from Bogota

    I have a permanent my view of all my stats. It is especially useful to be able to see my cadence and my heart rate permanently so I can see where I can make the extra effort. On longer rides the battery of my iPhone is no longer an issue.

    basically just a remote display for your iPhone

    • Written by from Helotes

    As far as i can tell, this device does not have GPS, accelerometer, altimeter, or any other kind of measurement capability. It basically just reports what your phone is measuring.

    On my first mountain bike ride, my battery dropped from about 100% to about 60% with just about 1 hour of riding (iPhone 5).

    Just think of how long your battery might last if you use your iPhone for GPS navigation on a road trip if you are not actively charging it.

    I'm swtiching back to a dedicated GPS device so i have some phone battery life available in case of emergency out on the trail.

    I wanted so badly to love this

    • Written by from Portland

    I really REALLY wanted to love this product because I highly value innovative companies like Wahoo and the RFLKT seemed like such a great idea.

    It dropped the connection to my phone during my one and only ride which was annoying, but forgivable. After owning it for less than a week, the RFLKT unit is totally dead. Tried resetting it to no avail, so back it goes.

    A disappointing experience with a product that had so much potential.

    RFLKT

    • Written by from Dordrecht

    Works well. Great potential too as it is an open platform.
    Don't forget to allow background refresh for the app you're using on your iPhone.
    Otherwise you lose connection after a while.

    Excellent App and product

    • Written by from Melbourne

    Have used the RFLKT+ for 3 rides and has been flawless. Set up on 2 bikes took a couple of hours but relatively painless. iPhone battery is now conserved, could probably do a 6 hour ride.

    Great bit of kit

    • Written by from Bishop's Stortford

    I use this to display all of the data from my bluetooth sensors on my roadbike. All my sensors are from Wahoo (cadence, speed and heart rate). It works well and is weather proof. Previously I had mounted my iphone on the handlebars but after a serious crash which miraculously my phone survived, I wanted to get away from leaving my phone in such a risky position. I also found the drain on the battery from the rather inconvenient turning the iPhone screen on and off to get real time data was too high. The RFLKT solves each of these problems and works well with the sensors I already have. This way I get all the benefits of tracking my performance on my iphone using the Wahoo app and then uploading to strava but with improved battery life, real time data always displayed and my iphone is safer in my pocket.

    RFLKT is all you need

    • Written by from Canton

    The RFLKT is all you need if you ride one or several bikes. The initial Bluetooth sync was a bit unconventional however syncing with the Wahoo app is seamless every time I ride. I like that is comes with multiple mounts so I can use it on all of my bikes. It works every time and I like the feature that allows you to pause your work out from the RFLKT without taking your phone out. I ride a fair bit at night and the red light helps to keep me up to date on my ride stats.
