Been looking of one of these for a while and the price has dropped on Black Friday from a number of stores including the linked CR one, but also including Wiggle, Evans and Wahoo themselves.
I got it from CR as you also get the 10% off with British Cycling membership.
So £170.99 with that extra off and also potentially cashback from the likes of Quidco (may not go through with this BC discount).

Fantastic deal on a great Cycle computer, and this deal makes it cheap than the equivalent Garmin. In my opinion, (and others reviewing it online) the Elemnt and smaller Elemnt Bolt are much better then the fundamentally flawed and more expensive Garmin 820. No doubt the Garmin Fanboys may have a diff opinion

Hmm... still tempted to get a Bryton 530 🤔

That's more expensive than my bike lol

Brilliant bits of kit! So far waaaay more reliable than my clunky Garmin 810.

A lot more basic unit mate. This is different league.
However, each to their own.

Ah, yes, I forgot about the "My bike/moped/car/whatever is cheaper than this" fanboys.

Added regular price to title. These Wahoo units don't generally get the same discount as other brands I've noticed. So thought this might be relevant.

Just to add the Wahoo ELEMNT GPS Cycle Computer Bundle is also available for £249.99 with speed and cadence sensors + HRM belt.
Also a good deal if you need the extra stuff.

Once you try Wahoo you never go back

Amazon just reduced the price to £177.00!!
Cheaper in CR @£170.99 with CAR discount. Nevertheless a great price if not a CR member.

How though.. basic in what way? 530 does all this an includes cadence and heart rate at this price..

Bought one of these to replace my garmin 520, I got rid of it after a few weeks and went back to the Garmin, the wahoo elevation readings were well out on my bike rides and got no support from wahoo to rectify the problem which is a known issue after reading up on it

Don't be. This is great. I've had lots of Garmin's. This beats them all

It's down to personal choice, gave this a blast but went back to the Garmin 520 quick smart.

Love one but what do i make redundant? I use android phone gps track and also a gps watch....

Clearly you don't value the turn by turn navigation, superior usability and miles better reliability this offers over your 520.

I changed from.a Garmin 1000 to this and consider it an upgrade

You can't really use either of those if you want to do any of the following...

Ride for more than 2 hours
Have accurate GPS
Display in bright sunlight
Display at night for long rides
Display ant+ sensors (speed, cadence, power, heart rate)
Use a power meter
Customise data fields
Properly waterproof
Securely mounted
Ride training plans
Show elevation (altimeter)

Etc etc etc

Quidco tracking on this bad boy @ £5.57
.
So I am getting this with the British Cycling 10% discount for the grand sum of £165.42.
A lot of cycling GPS for not much £ (by comparison with equiv G@rmin)

I have one, It's way better than my old Garmin.

Don't be put off by the monochrome screen. Colour screens look good in the shop but when you are out in brilliant sunlight and wearing polarised sunglasses colour screens can be a nightmare. It can be very hard to distinguish the difference between your route and track and an A road or motorway. Whereas on the Wahoo your route, track and roads remain totally clear no matter how bright the sunlight is.

Realised I'd not responded to this dude. Sorry

I hear what you are saying, and for the cash the 530 has a lot going for it, but its only breadcrumb guidance (such as you would link on a lower spec Garmin), not turn-by-turn. The maps are non-zoomable I understand meaning its less easy to interpret on a ride, its not got higher end stuff stuff like Strava Live segements, live tracking etc (admittedly I don't use these - yet) , and from the reviews I've seen its not that intuitive to navigate the menus. Again maybe a limitation on a ride

The mapping limitations are big issue for me. In the end (with quidco cashback) I paid about 20 quid more than the 530 for I believe a much more performant solution.

Don't get me wrong, the 530 seems a good unit for the cash, but I think these units Element (and Bolt) units are much better value - when at these sale prices of course.

Just my opinion and YMMV
