What is Multisport Handover?
The great part of the Wahoo RIVAL is that it works harmoniously with the ELEMNT ecosystem. Another feature of the RIVAL that utilizes this synchronization is the Multisport Handover. This feature allows you to seamlessly connect and display relevant bike data during your race or brick workout from your ELEMNT RIVAL. For example, when transitioning from swim to bike, or multi-brick bike to run workouts, you can simply look at your bike computer to watch and view the data you need. No more looking at your wrist when the goal is to keep your eyes straight ahead. All of your workout or race data is displayed on the ELEMNT bike computer screen while riding and then back to the RIVAL when you begin your run making relevant data available where you need it and never getting in the way of your performance.
How to Use Multisport Handover:
As is customary with all devices in the Wahoo ecosystem, Multisport Handover was designed with the athlete in mind. What does that mean? We focused this feature around ease and simplicity of use so you can focus on what is important.
- Pair your RIVAL and ELEMNT bike computer to the same account in the ELEMNT Companion App.
- The RIVAL and ELEMNT bike computer will know automatically that the other exists within the same family and will be ready to sync and use.
- Prior to beginning the multisport activity, place the ELEMNT bike computer to “Multisport Mode” and leave the computer on the bike. (AKA no more worrying about your computer shutting off or falling asleep when you are in the swim!)
- Upon arriving at your bike, the ELEMNT computer will automatically connect to the RIVAL and begin to show the relevant bike data. Fear not, your RIVAL will still be recording all of the bike data as well, but using your bike computer will make it more user friendly
