Wahoo Fitness has developed an iPhone-adaptable bike that allows users to control apps, play music, and more, with just one touch of their fingers. The gadget, named RFLKT, wirelessly receives data and images from an iPhone located in the jersey pocket of the cyclist. The two-ounce device, strapped between the bike’s handlebars, will then display the information via a Bluetooth 4.0 connection. Using the buttons on the side of the RFLKT, a user can control the App, change data screens, start and stop the timer, and control other App functionality such as music playback.
At launch, the RFLKT will be compatible with Wahoo’s own App for Cycling and Cyclemeter and will work only with the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5. Wahoo has also made the RFLKT an open platform, so more than 100 app partners are already creating compatible apps to add more functionanlities to this sleek cycling computer. Best of all, the RFLKT is coin cell operated, requiring no re-charging. With over a year battery life, the RFLKT never needs to leave the bike.
