The Elusive Wahoo Fitness iPhone ANT+ Bike Case Giveaway

As of today, you can’t get the Wahoo Fitness ANT+ Bike Case. Well, can’t legally get them without breaking into either my house or the Wahoo Fitness headquarters at an ‘undisclosed location’.  Otherwise, they aren’t available till January.

But I have two of them in my hands right now.  One for test/review, and one two give away to you: My peeps.

Chip – one of the guys at Wahoo Fitness has offered to giveaway one device to ya’ll.  Now normally I supply toys for giveaways out of my own pocket, but since this is 3-4 weeks before anyone else can get one – I figured I’d make an exception.  Well, actually, I’d make an exception anytime it’s cool enough – I’m not a big guy on random rules.  And this is cool enough.

In short, the Wahoo Fitness iPhone ANT+ Bike Case takes your existing iPhone device (3G, 3GS, 4), and protects it from that hideous tasting nutrition drink near your handlebars.  But, more importantly – it includes an ANT+ sensor directly in the device, allowing you to integrate straight with everything from ANT+ Power Meters to ANT+ Cadence/Speed Sensors, and heart rate straps.  There’s a gazillion apps out there for it now as well, which I’m sure you’ve seen me use from time to time.  And before ya ask, it supports adding an external battery pack to help out the occasionally slim iPhone battery life.  But, you can go over to their page to read all the marketing fluff – this is about giveaways.


(P.S. – You do NOT get my Rubber Elephant.  Mine!)
This contest is gonna run a bit different than most of my previous ones…simply because I want to get the device in your freezing little hands as soon as possible (and, secondly, because I leave Monday night for overseas…again).

Here’s the deal-e-o: Leave a comment, get an entry.

While I love having folks double-up via FaceBook, Twitter and Blogs – it’d be a bit tight to reconcile all those votes and ship it out before Monday night’s flight (and yes I could beg The Girl to help…but, I prefer to still get Christmas presents).  Of course, feel free to (Re)Tweet and FaceBook Like this all ya can – as that’s greatly appreciated, and helps get the word out.

Simply leave a comment below – perhaps something festive, perhaps something funny, or perhaps something relevant to the giveaway. Your choice.

The winner will be chosen at random though, so don’t feel bad if your comment creativity scale is a bit low this weekend.  It’ll just make it more entertaining for me to read all the comments (as well as for you to browse them).  Which reminds me – I do indeed read every.single.comment in the giveaways (as well as every other comment posted on any post).  I try and respond to as many as possible, but sometimes eating cookies takes precedence.  You understand, right?

Anyways – the comment period closes on this Monday, December 13th at 5PM Eastern (2PM Pacific).  Like all my contests, I ship it anywhere – even overseas, so all may enter.  Oh, but a new iPhone is not included…no matter how creative your comment is (unless it includes your credit card number).

Thanks all – and have a good weekend!

PS – for my previous thoughts on the Wahoo Fisica ANT+ Sensor stuff, see this post.

  1. Does it integrate with an Edge 500? OK, just kidding… 🙂

  2. Come all ye faithful as the Rainmaker has sung….

    I have won the wahoo case

    For he has only one…

    Happy holidays…

  3. Real neat. I order the Dahon iPhone4 case yesterday and hope to do a review on it. I like it but it doesn’t have the ability to use an ANT+ adapter as there is not enough room in the bottom of the case for it (although there is enough for a plug)

    Looking forward to writing my first “in-depth review.”

    This case is real neat. Happy Holiday and safe travel!

  4. G’day

    Another cool giveaway. Thanks for putting these out there.


  5. I like how you said you had something for “tomorrow”, and it’s all of 15 minutes into tomorrow and here it is! crazy! Also, does cookie bribery not work on The Girl? I’ve yet to see that fail…on anyone.

    Happy Holidays!

  6. If I win this it means I have to buy an iPhone and then strap it to my bike…I guess I’ve been wanting an iPhone anyways, so might as well try it.

  7. you said cookies! Nom nom nom
    (followed by long bike ride)

  8. Hey sounds great… leave a comment win an ant+ thingamagig.

  9. Trick or treat…smell my feet…oh, wait…sorry, wrong holiday. 😉 Happy Holidays.

  10. Now it is time for Sweden 🙂

  11. Nothing better for Christmas than giveaways out the waz(h)oo!
    Seriously though this would be an insanely amazing Christmas present. First of all the case is pretty damn cool, but more importantly you get to show it off a month before everyone else!

  12. Yay for Ray! (That counts, right?) 😉

  13. Id buy that for a dollar, Ynuck ynuck ynuck!!!!

  14. You never cease to amaze… you must be one of the tri-wise men.

  15. TH

    Cool. Love it and do sent it to me 🙂
    Happy holidays to all

  16. Verizon iPhone 4.5? See you Q1’11
    Wahoo Fitness iPhone ANT+ bike case-See you Q1’11..o wait, i meant mid-December before other people even know it exists!!!
    thanks Ray and thanks Wahoo!

  17. If I win this I’ll have ANT+ devices hanging off the handlebars like mirrors on a Vespa in Quadrophenia!

  18. Ray,
    Appreciate all the work you put into your product reviews and your blog in general. And of course, the giveaways.

    Merry Christmas and safe travels!

  19. My hands aren’t freezing (it’s 28 degrees celsius in SA), but they are itching to get a hold of that Wahoo Fitness Case!!

  20. Friend: “What in the world possessed you to train for an Iron-Length triathlon?”

    Me: “Because I love chocolate chip cookies… and I like to eat.”

  21. Nice – another give-away count me in!

  22. I usually have to borrow my kids’ iPod. Maybe this would be the impetus to get one of my own! Or maybe Santa will be good to me…

  23. Chrismast is comming early this year… nice one to give away

  24. Aki

    I hope that a spaniard could win this time.
    Merry christmas and a happy new 2011 season


  25. Another cool giveaway!

    I hope you and your beloved have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    With maybe slightly less travelling? Unless you like it of course!

  26. Happy Holidays! I have a Garmin 305 coming my way, chosen based on your great reviews. I’d love to add the Wahoo to my tri-tech repertoire.

  27. Anonymous

    Happy Holidays 🙂

  28. Does it come with an iPhone?

  29. 2 votes for me, one on here and one on facebook, for hopefully a nice xmas present. Hope you all have a wonderful christmas, seasons greetings to you all

    I’ve been following Wahoo for a while now and they have a great business model. Sell hardware and make our API available for developers. Unlike iBike, and the ethereal Pedalbrain, who are creating hardware that will only work with their software because of Apple’s API restrictions. Really looking forward to getting one of these.

  31. One of the more interesting apps that supports the sensor is the EZ-BIKE app. – link to

    If you have a Mac, then this app adds a nice overlay application that shows speed/candence/HRM info on top of videos you are playing. Makes it pure awesomeness when suffering with the Sufferfest bike training videos -> link to or you can use it while you are on a dreadmill watching Desperate Housewives (kill me please!)

    Anyway, to know how it looks like, just download the Userguide PDF. Not sure why the app developer decide to omit such an awesome screenshot.. hehe

  32. I’d totally like to get my hands on your case…err…

  33. Lee

    Newbie Tri guy… trying to wrap my head around all this great technology-goodness.

  34. thanks again for doing so much work on your product reviews… i am confident that i have the best christmas wish list ever based on your comprehensive info!

  35. Ben

    This would be a great addition!

    Happy Holidays!

  36. “Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.” — James Bryant Conant

  37. Will it work fully underwater??!! Just kidding, but it would be neat to get something like this for the pool!



  38. Just the right size to fit in my stocking!!!

  39. geo

    Nothing interesting, just random. I’ll probably be grabbing one of these anyway, just way too versatile of a toy

  40. Hey, we spoke about this device on Twitter the day before yesterday. Love to uses this device !

  41. if i win, i want an iphone for christmas 🙂

  42. count me in. love the blog & the giveaways.

  43. Sounds great! Thanks for the giveaway, and all your reviews. You’ve saved me hundreds of dollars (so far!) keeping me from buying the wrong equipment!

  44. Thanks for all of the great posts throughout the year.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    Have fun on your trip.

  45. This is so much better than the jelly of the month club.

  46. This is great! Rainmaker strikes again!

  47. I wonder how well it would work out here in Afghanistan?

    Many thanks to Rainmaker for his reviews. Based on his review, I order a Garmin 305 to track my runs out here.

    Semper Fi


  48. Looking forward to you review

  49. Seems like is you are going to have a bulky case with the ANT+ sensor, you could have included a battery in the case. This triple role would really make it shine, A little more bulk for the added benefit of pretty much guaranteeing it would last through any ride……

  50. I just finished making 100 dozen Christmas cookies. After eating these cookies I will need to get my ass on the bike. Hence this dandy device would be oh so helpful.

  51. Woot! Oops, wrong site :). Thanks for the great giveaways, keep up the great work!

  52. Wow.. It looks great. Does it also have a bar/stem mount under the case? Very cool that it has everything built in.

  53. It’s weird that I had a Wahoo case on my Christmas list.

    Wait… are you actually Santa Claus?

  54. Would be a great present to win!

  55. Nick V.

    Ray Maker the new Santa?

  56. Brock

    Give a little…get a little. Thanks for the giveaways and great reviews.

  57. Wahoo! Another giveaway. Thanks.

  58. JP

    Here is my post…

  59. BigDfromBigD

  60. Stocking Stuffer! Thanks much Ray, have a great holiday season!

  61. C

    I just bought an iphone 4 yesterday… do I need to get a bike if I win this 🙂

  62. I’ll take one entry!

  63. carisso

    Merry Christmas!!

  67. Very nice …..
    Of course I still wait for the Wahoo android adapter, but this Iphone adapter comes in handy here as well.
    Maybe now i can connect my Ipad on the bike !!

  68. Hey Ray,

    Thanks again for a great BLOG. I read it every morning at breakfast. Awesome giveaway too! Keeping my fingers crossed!

    Merry Christmas!

  69. Count me in. The cookies are included in the giveaway, right?? Merry Christmas.

  70. Woohoo for Wahoo!! I’d like to try that puppy out. I’ve got all sorts of Garminy ant+ stuff to use it with!

  71. Cool stuff – happy holidays.

  72. And the Grinch grabbed the tree, and he started to shove
    When he heard a small sound like the coo of a dove.
    He turned around fast, and he saw a small WaWHO Fitness ANT+ Bike Case!
    Little Cindy-Lou Who (rayMAKER of this great giveaway), who was not more than two (or older, who cares).

    The Grinch had been caught by this little Who daughter
    Who’d got out of bed for a cup of cold Nuun water.
    She stared at the Grinch and said, “Santy Claus, why,
    “Why are you taking our Christmas tree? WHY?”

    But, you know, that old Grinch was so smart and so slick
    He thought up a lie, and he thought it up quick!
    “Why, my sweet little tot,” the fake Santy Claus lied,
    “There’s a light on this tree that won’t light on one side.
    “So I’m taking it home to my workshop, my deer.
    “I’ll fix it up there. Then I’ll bring it back here.”

    And his fib fooled the child. Then he patted her head
    And he got her a drink of nuun water and he sent he to bed.
    And when Cindy-Lou Who went to bed with her sport bottle,
    HE went to the chimney and stuffed the tree up (saying it’s okay, I’m a professional and you won the WaWHO Fitness iPhone ANT+ Bike Case Giveaway! Maybe

  73. Been looking for an excuse to by an iPhone . . .

  74. Count me in. The cookies are included in the giveaway, right?? Merry Christmas.

  79. Jay

  80. Count me in… And next time you’re near Calgary Alberta give me a ring, we should go for a run. 🙂

  81. My iPhone plus ANT+! Solves all of my problems!! Yay!

  82. Running through the snow
    After a long day
    O’er the ice we go
    Sliding all the way
    Yak trax I didn’t bring
    Trying to keep things light
    Oh what fun it is to watch,
    Us runners crashing tonight.

    Wow, that was lame. Sorry.

  83. Rob

    Happy holidays!

    iTouch compatible?

  84. Keep up the great blog. I read it daily and look forward to all your in depth reviews

    Did anyone else notice Ray’s resting Heart Rate while watching his phone under the bathtub faucet was higher than the usual 40’s?

  86. Damn… if I win, I gotta get a bike… Ok, enter me… i’ll just strap it to the hood of my nissan cube…

  87. No credit card number from me 😛 But I will try my luck and cross my fingers.


  88. Nice!
    Came here yesterday because of your Wahoo Fitness first look. Looking forward to hearing more about your experience with it. I don’t bike much, anymore, but if I were to get this, it might actually motivate me.
    The thing about ANT+ devices and apps, is that they really bridge the gap between geekness and fitness. Sure, there are many gadgets in the world of fitness. But this is about getting data on your own activities and doing something with it.
    I was actually dreaming about something like this, back in 2004. It was mostly about getting your heart rate into a computer but, since the iPhone came out, it’s much neater a concept.

    The issue I have with this case, though, is that my device is an iPod touch. I’m guessing the guess is too big for it. But if, by any chance, I do win it, I’ll find a way to make it work.

    Looking forward to your further thoughts on Wahoo Fitness!


  89. All I want for Christmas is…

  90. hope its me. this is a great blog

  91. Best tri blog on the net! Thanks Ray!

  92. If I win, Hubbs get a new toy and back on his bike more! Yeah for a biking sherpa on my long runs!

    Merry Christmas!

  93. Awesome Blog and nice post about JP yesterday!

  94. Way to be. Another awesome give a way. Lets hope I win this

  96. BLP

    Wow, now I can justify taking my iPhone on rides. Got to find a way to block calls from family – “dad, where’s my ipod”, “dad, what’s for breakfast”, “dad, can you drive me to…”, “honey, I thought you were going to paint the house before your ride!” I hope I win the Wahoo!!! Now off to iTunes to find the call blocker.

    BTW, thanks for all your reviews!

    Have a good trip

  100. As an iPhone user for 6 days this is now relevant to my interests!

  101. Yet another awesome giveaway Ray! I’d love to be able to integrate my iPhone directly with some of the ANT+ accessories I’ve begun acquiring, but that would really just be an extra sprinkle on an already scrumptious cupcake. Merry Christmas to you and The Girl and thanks for providing so much information, inspiration, and entertainment!

  102. love the dongle, wanna try the case

  103. This comment is a paragon of humor and pithiness, just as the Wahoo Fitness iPhone ANT+ Bike Case is a thing of beauty and a joy forever.

    Thanks for doing this!

  104. Wahoo! Where can I get a rubber elephant?

  105. Great excuse to buy an iPhone.

  113. Steve in Houston

  121. “Where do you think you’re going? Nobody’s leaving. Nobody’s walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We’re all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We’re gonna press on, and we’re gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny f#%*%ing Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he’s gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse.” -Clark W. Griswold

  149. Thanks to wari for pointing out EZ-Bike… pretty nifty!

    I’m still waiting for an app that will let me download data from my 310XT on my iPhone/iPad (then later move it on to my program of choice). It’d be nice to not bring my laptop when I’m traveling.

  150. This would go beautifully with the bike I just found out I am getting for Christmas. 🙂

  151. Over my budget and despite my Android love, I bought an iPhone4. I just couldn’t resist having ANT+ joy in my mobile and that Wahoo case looks as yummier than smoked Swedish reindeer. (After Christmas Eve, of course.)
