Cycling has never been more fun as it is now and it is possible all because of the world’s first iPhone powered cycling computer, the RFLKT Bike Computer. Now, cyclists can wirelessly send cycling App data, images and workout info from their iPhone 4S and the new iPhone 5 via Bluetooth 4.0 cyclists to the handlebar mounted Computer. While the iPhone remains safely in a jersey pocket or bike mounted compartment.
Head of marketing and sales for Wahoo Fitness, Mike Stashak says,
“Cyclists told us that they wanted their iPhone and cycling Apps at the center of their cycling experience, while still having a dedicated bike computer that could remain on the bike at all times. The RFLKT gives cyclists the best of both worlds. Cyclists are carrying their iPhone in their back jersey pocket for safety and tracking their ride using their favorite App anyway, why not use the iPhone to monitor the workout in real-time as well? The RFLKT harnesses the iPhone’s powerful GPS, App data and social networking, transferring it wirelessly to a classic handlebar mounted bike computer consistent with today’s high-end road and mountain bikes.”
