Wahoo Wahoo RPM Cadence Sensor - Bluetooth 4.0 and ANT+
Does what it says
I purchased this so I can have my ZWIFT account show cadence on screen and not need to use Wahoo and Strava, Works just fine.

Excellent product - works right out of the box with no issues.

Poor configration information
I bought this product a month ago, and recieved very little configuration information, so initial setup was incorrect and device caddy was damaged, cadence recording has been inaccurate and inconsistent.

House Of Pain "Jump Around"
If this cadence sensor had a theme tune it would be as per the title. Whilst it was easy to fit and pairs easily, sadly the cadence readings are not consistent and constantly fluctuate up and down around 5rpm on either side of my actual cadence. This has become really annoying and is driving me crazy to the point where I've gone back to using a magnet / chain stay type sensor instead. I ran them side by side for a few rides just in case it was me that had dreadful choppy cadence consistency but the readings from the magnet sensor were perfect where as the readings from the RPM did the jump around thing. I thought the unit might be faulty but my partner's RPM does exactly the same. This is such a disappointment!

Small apparatus dose it's job!
Cadence sensor does what it should, thus it was bit too large to fit my mtb frame. Tthough the space is limited.

The product is very small, light and easy to install. It took me a little bit of time to sync it but once I got it going this product is awesome. Is measuring exactly what I was looking for the only down fall is that I cannot link my HRM to the wahoo fitness so I can benefit 100% the product. This the way to go if you are looking to track your cadence.

I have two of these sensors as I found it much easier to just mount them and leave them on the bikes instead of trying to use the shoe attachment method. The provided mounting options are great. One of my bikes has crank arms which are flat on the anterior side so I used the adhesive patch for a minimal clean look. My other bike's arms are concave and the adhesive wouldn't work, so I had to use the zip ties, which was quite easy as well. The only downside is the sensor is adversely affected by rough pavement and even more so by gravel trails and its accuracy suffers in those conditions.

Great tool for knowing your cadence
Great Tool to know your cadence. I like the fact that I can use it from bike to bike by putting it in my sock.
the only problem I had in the beginning was that I was getting intermittent data and by taking the battery out and reversing the polarity it was fixed.
Sometimes I do lose data but it is because of bumpy roads. It also takes some time to catch up when you increase or decrease your cadence speed.

Love the idea of no magnets, but the connection or signal is very intermittent and cadence reading goes from the 60's to 90's way too much. Frustrating.

Great product - Bad Timing
Product works great but I was bummed I bought this older Blue Model the day before their new model came out. I wish Wahoo would've shared this update or given me the choice to pick which was the right fit for me.

Cheap, easy and effective
I needed a cadence monitor that I could use with my wahoo kickr, and the rpm cadence sensor was the perfect solution. It's inexpensive, it is very easy to install and it has worked seamlessly with my trainer road workouts. I'm becoming a huge fan of the wahoo kickr, and being able to monitor my cadence during my power-focused workouts has been very helpful.

Easy to use
The RPM was VERY simple to install and link to my phone and Kicker. Great buy.
19 February 2016
Pros: Light, Durable and easy to connect. I use it with my Garmin Edge 1000 with no issues
Cons: Sometimes the measurement keeps oscillating but not big issue. I have a Cervelo R3 and I just can fix it in the ND crank arm with the 3M tape and put an additional zip tie for security. The stock rubber case makes it too thick as the distance between arm and Cervelo R3 frame is not that large - so cannot spin freely.

only works about half the time
i purchased this item to keep cadance while spinning at the gym. the device connects to my phone and in the Wahoo app it shows up but it does not keep cadance very well. only works about half of the time
05 February 2016
Purchased the sensor to pair up to a laptop for use with Zwift. I've had no issues and highly recommend Wahoo products... Links up to both laptop and smartphone and ties in great with the Kickr...

Great piece love it on my road bike it didn't fit my MTB bike Specialized Sworkz epic but I don't think anything will.
20 January 2016
I bought last months... It is good and I am happy using this equipment.highly recommended with friends.

Just works, easy set up on cyclometer then forget
Been using 2 of these for 2 years, had a battery problem with the oldest one they replaced it no hassle. Great customer service!

RPM Training aid
Neat gizmo! Provides well-buffered (numbers don't jump around), real-time feedback. I use it for HIIT hill repeats. It's helpful in guiding effort and also motivates me to push to my goals. Nice companion to Wahoo HR monitor.
Mounting on my road shoes required a little "engineering" because my straps were too wide for the clip. I wire-tied the silicon case onto the shoes so I can easily switch the RPM to my MTB shoes.

Inaccurate. Needs improvement
As the title suggests. The reading is inconsistent. I compared it to Garmin version and it wasn't even a fair fight. Same ride, two different recording devices

Dies after a few days use
I use - or rather I wanted to use - this device with my Suunnto Ambit3. When I got it, it didn't work, I changed the battery and then it worked fine - but only for a week then it was dead again. within one month I have changed the battery 4 times, used it in total 8 times for 2 hours each time. Seriously disappointing!

The RPM Cadence sense is such a simple device to implement but does exactly what its supposed to do. It does it whether using Bluetooth or Ant+ and is set and forget other than battery changes. It has performed as expected and was worth every penny.
08 December 2015
I am reviewing the Wahoo rpm/cadence device. I received 2 from wahoo and neither works properly. During a ride the dadence is all over the place. goes right from 90 to 70 to 90 to 60. I had my garmin cadence linked also to my garmin 1000 and that was very steady.
03 December 2015
Just received my RPM cadence unit and have had several rides with it. The simplicity of the gizmo is elegant. It does what it is supposed to do with a simple installation, pairing with my iPhone 6sP using Abvio Cycle/Walkmeter.
My cranks were not as flat on the inner face as shown in the Wahoo installation so used the silicone rubber and wire ties installation option. It seems to me that this would be a more weather tight option for those us cycling in the Pacific Northwest - it does tend to rain a bit up here.
Great solution for the flexibility of cadence only for those of us using smart phones with fitness apps. The dual channel transmitter will also interface with the cycle computers I'm considering.

I bought the cadence sensor so that I could use it on my shoe and on different bikes. Worked great on the trainer and on a short road ride. I tried it on my shoe for 100 miles and I had shoe covers on and intermittently it didn't work, so that disappointed me. I put my iPhone in a plastic bike bag and the blue tooth worked to track me so I was disappointed the cadence sensor didn't work under shoe covers. I have not attached it to bike because I wanted to use it on several bikes.
29 October 2015
Performed as expected
Purchased due to having a bike computer without cadence. Welcomed additional metric to have without replacing exsisting computer or having additional wires for cadence measurement

Easy to install, works great out of the box
When I got the RPM sensor, I noticed a blue light flashing, so without even unboxing it, I found it on my Android....that was a good sign. The instructions are simple drawings, that confused me a bit, but I placed the Cadence Sensor on my crank with the double sticky tape and it works great with my IpBike App, Instantly found it and provides current, last 60 second, avg, and max RPM. Superbly easy and helpful. I use it on a tandem with a PD patient on back to maintain 85 RPM. It works.

does not work
will not pair with my iPhone 6s. have tried the reset procedure but made no difference. Don't think it is my phone as this paired with my polar hr monitor just fine.
03 October 2015
Small, light and practical
I ordered it with my new kickR, because the trainer has no cadence sensor, and glued it onto the crank. Simple and quick to do. The readout is quite unsteady, compared to otherunits using a magnetic

RPM Cadence Sensor
I purchased the Wahoo RPM along with the TICKR X and RFLKT+. I already owned the WAHOO KICKR and wanted other quality devices from Wahoo. The key benefits of the RPM are simplicity, lightweight, portability (I attached it to my cycling shoe so it moves from one bike to another), and Bluetooth + ANT+ compatibility. The only detraction if have with the RPM is that it does not work well at low cadences. I climb some very steep hills and do low cadence training workouts (30 - 50 RPM). Unfortunately, it drops frequently at lower cadences. This happens using the Wahoo fitness app and Zwift simultaneously. This means that both the ANt+ and Bluetooth channels are dropping. It occurs if the RPM is attached to the crank or to my shoe. The big question is whether I would I buy the RPM again? Definitely. The advantages definitely outweigh the detractions. The fact that I can move my single cadence sensor with my shoe from bike to bike is a huge value. I do not have to buy separate cadence sensors for all of my bikes. Also, there are very few instances where I perform low cadence workouts. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and look forward to more quality products from Wahoo Fitness.
