The RFLKT wirelessly receives or ‘reflects’ cycling App data, heart-rate, speed, cadence, music data and more, allowing the safe storage of an iPhone in a jersey pocket or storage box

Wahoo Fitness, the leader in iPhone™ powered fitness, running and cycling devices, today announces the RFLKT iPhone bike computer, the world’s first and only iPhone powered cycling computer. Using Bluetooth Smart technology, Wahoo’s newest innovation allows cyclists to wirelessly transmit their cycling App data from the iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S, to the handlebar-mounted RFLKT computer. Wahoo Fitness’ RFLKT will be available at the end of June for £119.99 from Apple stores, www.Apple.com and www.wahoofitness.com.

The RFLKT wirelessly receives all App data and ride information from the iPhone 5 and/or iPhone 4S via the built-in Bluetooth Smart technology. Equipped with control buttons, cyclists can operate their favourite iPhone cycling App, switch between screens, start or stop intervals and even control iPhone functionality such as music playback from the RFLKT, while the iPhone remains safely in a jersey pocket or bike mounted compartment.

With a sleek profile, the RFLKT only weighs 57 grams, making it virtually unnoticeable when mounted, while the disposable coin cell operated battery has a life of over one year and requires no charging.

Chip Hawkins, CEO of Wahoo Fitness, explains: “RFLKT is the perfect solution for App-loving, data junkie cyclists that shy away from mounting their pricey iPhone on their handlebars risking drop, crash and weather damages.

“Whether to monitor their ride with a cycling App or just for safety, cyclists and triathletes routinely carry their iPhones during their rides. Instead of the iPhone sitting idle in their back pocket, the RFLKT captures all the data from the iPhone and displays it on the rider’s handlebars in real-time. This puts the App info, GPS, music, speed/cadence, heart rate, power and all other cycling data, conveniently within view and reach like a traditional bike computer.”

RFLKT iPhone bike computer features include:

  • Wirelessly receives data, images and cycling App features from the new iPhone 5 and iPhone 4s via Bluetooth Low Energy
  • From the RFLKT cyclists can navigate screens, start/stop timer, control music playback and additional App features, while the iPhone remains securely in a jersey pocket or bike mounted compartment
  • Coin cell operated, requires no recharging with a battery life of one year
  • Weighs just 57 grams and measures 2.4” L x 1.6” W x 0.5” H, making it lightweight and compact like the top bike computers on the market
