    Wahoo Elemnt Bolt mount by K-Edge

    I may just be missing it, but why would anyone buy the new(ish) K-Edge mount for the Elemnt Bolt?

    The K-Edge one now integrates nicely the computer, as does the one it comes with. The K-Edge one is heavier. I know it is metal vs plastic, but I don't see the benefit. Oh, and what about price!? The K-Edge one is WAY more than the Wahoo one that is lighter.

    What am I missing?

    Some people are of the belief that due to it being a metal mount, it's sturdier. Possibly they think that will better protect the head unit.

    I only know I've used assorted plastic units for Wahoo and Garmin for a few years, had the bike fall over on occasion, never broken the mount so like you, don't get the point.

    I have four mounts for my Bolt; three made by Wahoo, including the one they just put out. They're all great. And, they're all a lot less $$$ than K-Edge.

    Paying $70 bucks for a heavier one is just plain ridiculous IMHO

    I have a K-edge mount for the garmin and I got it because they make a version that tucks a go pro mount underneath and the extra sturdiness makes for a steadier picture than the plastic mounts I've tried, it's also nice to be able to tuck the GP or my Fly12 underneath the computer and not have another mount on the bars.
    But yeah, I keep getting dropped on coffee rides because of the extra weight
