“Our new iPhone mounting system allows you to bring your iPhone 5 with you on any ride, in any conditions,” says Chip Hawkins, CEO of Wahoo Fitness. “The PROTKT caters to all riders – the cyclist dedicated to progress monitoring, the safety conscious adventurist who’s not afraid to stray from the beaten path, to the rider that doesn’t want to miss a beat by disconnecting from the world. This sturdy mount gives you greater access to your iPhone while assuring protection from the unexpected.”


The PROTKT also comes bundled with the Wahoo Fitness App for cycling – transforming your iPhone into a powerful fitness tool – which you can combine with fitness sensors to wirelessly monitor all your vitals. Pair your PROTKT’ed iPhone with the Wahoo Blue HR Heart Rate Strap to connect to your iPhone 5 and receive accurate real-time heart rate data through the Wahoo Fitness App. In addition, use the Wahoo Blue SC Speed and Cadence Sensor to track cycling
speed, cadence and distance through the Wahoo Fitness app. The combination of Wahoo Fitness technology allows you to access your vitals, progress data, playlists, GPS maps and hone all in one device. For when you’re not on the bike, the PROTKT is compatible with Wahoo’s comfortable neoprene hand band ($14.99) that straps the PROTKT case to your hand for hiking, running and walking.
