The days of finding time to tether up to your laptop to sync ride data, download maps, or update your computer’s software are over. The ELEMNT bike computer was engineered to work with a wide array of ride-enhancing apps to make your rides simpler, more insightful, and fun! Check out our faves.


Strava

 

ELEMNT fully integrates with Strava Live Segments to give you an accurate progress status and a final push to beat your goals. You’ll be alerted when approaching the start of a segment that’s on your device, and when the segment actually starts. During the segment, you’ll be able to choose which effort you want to be compared against, whether it’s your KOM/QOM, PR, or the time of a friend who’s a little faster than you. You’ll be notified when you complete the segment, and whether you beat the time you were competing against.


Ride With GPS

 

Every ELEMNT comes with a free 30-day trial of Ride with GPS Premium. This app allows you to plan, navigate, and share your cycling adventures with the best tools available. You can plan custom cycling routes that power turn-by-turn navigation. You can also create custom cues along your route that alert you to road surface changes, scenic viewpoints, or water stops. When your ride is finished, it will automatically upload your ride history and data to Ride With GPS.


Komoot

Every ELEMNT also comes with a free region bundle on Komoot. This app allows you to plan more sport-specific routes with tailored stops, detailed surface types, and turn-by-turn navigation. Whatever you ride, Komoot will create a route tailored to your sport type—be it smooth asphalt for your road bike, singletracks for your mountain bike, or plenty of gravel for your off-road adventures. Your planned routes will be synced automatically with your ELEMNT, ready for you to share and relive every detail of each ride.


Best Bike Split

This is the best app integration to follow your race plan on race day. Best Bike Split provides race targets throughout your race corresponding to your rider/bike settings, the specific course, and weather conditions. Paired with your KICKR, you can pre-train any race plan with the most accurate simulation available. Unlike most programs that purely simulate a course’s elevation change, the BBS simulation factors in elevation change, wind effects, expected rolling resistance, rider/bike weight, and rider-specific aerodynamic drag that changes based on the wind and course conditions.


Training Peaks

The Training Peaks app integration will guide you through your workouts in real time, displaying them directly on your ELEMNT bike computer. Typically these workouts involve a set of planned intervals with one or two targets per interval based on power, heart rate, or cadence. So whatever workout you choose, you’ll see the data you need in clear notifications. You can also authorize your Training Peaks account to automatically send workouts to your ELEMNT. It will sync the next five days and the last two days of planned workouts, so you’re ready to go any time a pre-workout kicks in.


ELEMNT Companion App

The ELEMNT Companion App is free with purchase and uses the intuitive interface of your smartphone to customize your settings, configure workout pages, and link your ELEMNT to your favorite cycling apps and wireless sensors. Feeling a burger? Brewpub? An epic destination? Wherever you want to go, ELEMNT can take you there—just open the ELEMNT Companion App and start typing either the address or name of your destination, and the app will generate a cycling-optimized route, complete with turn-by-turn pop-ups. Then, all you have to do is put your phone away and ride!


There are endless ways to challenge yourself with different app integrations, so have fun with it—try a few out! We’d love to hear what you think. And let us know if you have a fave we didn’t mention!
