Screen setup guide for your Wahoo ELEMNT BOLT and ROAM.

Updated: Oct 18, 2022



Having the right data on your screen will help you enjoy your ride and improve the quality of your training. Want to get the most from your Wahoo bike computer? Follow our screen setup guide.


To adjust the pages and data fields that appear on your Wahoo bike computer you'll need to use the Elemnt App. Once your device is connected to the app, go to settings, then customize and pages. Here you toggle different default pages on and off or create your own pages. To make it easier to field the data fields you want to add to your screens use the search function rather than scrolling through the list of options.

Here's how we suggest you set up your Wahoo screens to get the most from your ride or training.



 

Home screen - This is screen which shows many of the totals we might want to see during a ride.


Active Time (workout)

Power (vs workout avg)

Heart rate

Cadence

Time of Day

Pedaling LR Efficiency - only applicable if you have a double sided power meter.

Temperature


 

Ride Summary screen - A summary of what we've done during that ride, useful you are trying to hit a target for distance, training stress or energy expenditure.


Active Time (workout)

Total Ascent (workout)

Distance (workout)

Kilojoules (workout)

Avg Heart Rate (workout)

Calories (workout)

Normalized Power

Training Stress Score

Intensity Factor


 

Map screen - This is the page we usually use during a MTB Marathon race.


Power (vs lap avg)

Current Lap Active Time

Normalized Power (lap)

Distance Remaining (selected course)

- Yes to Show Elevated Profile







 

Race - This is the screen we use during a race when we don't need the map. In a race you'd don't have the time to be looking at so many data fields, therefore we reduce the number of data fields on display and toggle between this screen and the map screen. On race day we even hide the other screens using the app so we don't have to hit the page button loads of times to find the right screen whilst flying along the trails.


Current Lap Active Time

Power (vs lap avg)

Avg Power (lap)

Heart Rate

Active Time (workout)

Distance (workout)


For a shorter race like a road crit, cyclocross or MTB cross country you may not even need all these data field, you might just need lap time, power and / or heart rate and total ride time.


 

Power screen - This is the page we usually use during a power-based workout or sometimes during an endurance ride when we don't want to know how long we've been riding or still have remaining!


Power (vs lap avg)

Remaining Time/Distance - Interval

Avg Power

Normalized Power (lap)

Target Power

Cadence

Heart rate


We suggest to clients to use a combination of power, average power & normalized power to pace intervals. Normalized is particularly useful on longer intervals or long sustained power efforts where it's hard to avoid interruptions out on the road.


 

Heart Rate screen - This is the page we usually use during a heart rate-based workout or sometimes during endurance rides offroad.


Heart Rate

Remaining Time/Distance - Interval

Avg Heart Rate (lap)

Power (vs lap avg)

Cadence




 

Planned Workouts screen - This is the screen we use when we might need to skip forwards or backwards during or a workout or pause a workout. Your Wahoo will allow you to pause a workout but keen record, this allows flexibility if for example you need longer to warm up or a longer recovery step to reach somewhere suitable on the road to start the next interval.


Power (vs workout avg)

Avg Power (lap)

Remaining Time/Distance - Intervals

Normalized Power (lap)

Heart rate

Remaining Time/Distance - Workout


 

You are ready to go!


Once your screens are set up and you are out riding you can zoom in and out to narrow down the number of data fields on display.


Enjoy your ride or good luck for your race!
