The ROAM brings intuitive navigation and a bright colour screen to the ELEMNT line. Ever present user favourite features like the quick-read LED bezel, Strava segment integration and sleek out the front mount, make the ROAM a formidable addition to your cockpit. GPS provides speed and distance information, while a barometric altimeter covers ascent, decent, and grade. Equipped with ANT+, Bluetooth Smart and Wi-Fi, there are a wide variety of sensors that can tell you more about how you ride. When trainer season rolls around the ROAM is ready. Seamless smart trainer integration means the ROAM can take control of your smart trainer and help keep you in shape during the off-season. The free companion app makes set-up and customization easy. The app lets you choose how and where your rides are uploaded, what notifications are sent to your ROAM, what maps you have on your device and more.

  • Preloaded with a fully routable mapset, including street and trail names. Enter a course or destination and the ELEMNT ROAM will navigate you there.
  • Detailed re-routing is there for you should you get off course. Where previous units gave you an arrow to show you what direction you needed to go to get back on course, the ELEMNT ROAM will provide turn-by-turn directions to get you back on track.
  • Back-to-start mode plots the most direct route (with turn-by-turn directions) to get you back to where you began.

  • Strava Live Segment integration lets you know when your starred segments (starred via your phone’s Strava app) are about to begin and shows instantaneous data. Showing your performance in the moment, and how it compares to your PR and the current KOM or QOM, and then provides results once the segment is complete (Strava premium required).
  • Live Tracking during activities (through a connected smartphone running the ELEMNT app) allows you to share your location, speed, and more.
