Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase I wanted to get a cadence sensor so that I could have more accurate information about my rides on Zwift. It works perfectly. It syncs up seamlessly every ride and is accurate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid performance I’ve bought two of these units and both work just fine. Easy installation (shoe mount and crank mount). very occasional drop outs but only for a few seconds usually outdoors riding paired to a bolt head unit. Work perfectly indoors especially with ant+. on trainer road (mac) , wahoo fitness app (bt) and bolt head unit. Drops out occasionally with jet black trainer app on ant+. Just about to buy a third unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wahoo Cadence Sensor Winter time brings out the trainer. With the Kickr trainer I went with all BLE sensors to pair with Zwift. Easy to mount with the silicone sleeve. You can mount w the 3M tape, but the sleeve is attached by zip ties and I find it more secure. So far, it pairs nicely and I give it 5-stars. In the spring, it should pair with my Garmin which uses Ant+.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little piece of kit I bought this use for spinning (primarily). I use it all the time. It paired right away and I have stuck on my shoe strap or even have put it in my shoe during spinning classes or on outdoor rides and its perfect. Its really accurate and until my Edge 520 it never seems to just drop out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well with quick installation Using it with Zwift and it works well. I got a little confused on the installation but decided it had to be mounted on the crank arm that is on the opposite side from the gears (so it won't hit anything). I now have cadence on Zwift; I am happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't ride without them I love my Wahoo cadence sensors and my ticket heart rate sensor. I have two handcycles and use my sensors on each of them. Unless you like pain, handcycling demands that you stay in your most effective rpm and cardio range and the rpm and tickr sensors keep me there. Easy to install and they Bluetooth to the Strava app I use on my iPhone6. Long battery life and you can't beat the value for the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I've been using this cadence sensor for over a month and it has been working great. The only issue I had was using the MapMyFitness app. It insisted that any Cadence sensor talk ANT+ which my SmartPhone does not do. Fortunately, the Wahoo Fitness app is capable of acquiring and displaying my data and, at the end of the workout, being configured to upload to the MapMyFitness website, among others. It has worked 100% for me. And so far, the battery life is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It just works Takes no time to wake the sensor once you spin the cranks unless another brand's that I won't mention which was very frustrating. I also like the versatility of it being dual-band so I can pair to just about anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Added a whole new dimension to my workout. I have the iPhone 6s Plus. It synced flawlessly with it. Between my HR monitor and wahoo app with gps I have a great workout everytime i ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No reason to look elsewhere The brilliance of Wahoo is that it is always the path of least resistance; Whatever you get, it meets or exceeds expectations, and is usually the most affordable alternative. This has always been true for me in the past, and my RPM cadence sensor was no exception. It arrived when I expected, in perfect working order. Getting it setup was simple and straightforward, and it has worked flawlessly since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stick and go! I purchased the Cadence counter to help me with my "at-home" spin classes; the apps I use often base their directions on cadence so I needed something to let me know how I was doing. I had the Cadence counter out of the box and in use within minutes. I also use the Wahoo Tickr HRM and it's so nice to be able to see both readouts from one (Wahoo) app. Great purchase! Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sensor for spin! Got this a month ago to use for spin class, our bikes don't have any computers on them. I put the sensor in an extra foot pod case I had, and stuck it on the bottom strap of my shoe. It works fine flat, it doesn't need to be "vertical" as if it were attached to the crank arm. I put the app up on my phone, stick it in one of the two water bottle holders, and base my resistance off the RPMs. I wish there was a "quick" way to add on the speed sensor as well, trying to determine distance requires a degree in mathematics!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with Strava, iPhone & Apple Watch Setup was a little rocky, with instructions hidden away in the website, and pairing with Strava app on iPhone took a few tries. It pairs with Strava as Speed & Cadence, rather than just Cadence, but works. Once the sensor is paired with Strava on the iPhone, starting Strava from Apple Watch captures cadence seamlessly. Didn't have clearance to mount on the inside of the crank arm, but adhesive mount on the outward-facing non-drive arm near bottom bracket works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly for me I've had this item over 2 months. I bought it for two reasons. 1. for my mountain bike which I can't mount a cadence sensor on and 2. when riding on my trainer (my road bike has a cadence sensor in the PT hub and I have a kickr. So I just move the sensor to which shoe I'm riding and it works perfectly. I'm not saying it's 100% accurate since I have no idea and haven't done any scientific tests on it but I will say it correlates to my average cadence on my other devices. For the money and ease of use I think it's great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny, effective, waterproof 20 years of mountain biking made me a permanent pedal masher. I wanted to develop a smoother, more circular pedal motion to improve my road biking performance. I use this as a foot pod for commuting to work, connected to my Garmin head unit, and focus on keeping my cadence as close to 90 RPM as possible. At first I found it incredibly hard to maintain the cadence, but thanks to the real time feedback it is getting easier and I am riding faster. Simple product that just works. And I have used it for five hour rides in the rain without any problem.
