The Element Track, formerly known as the Element is identical in every way to the Element except for the printing on the housing. The name was changed to allow for additional models in the Element series. The Element Track is perfect blend of functionality, size, weight, ruggedness, battery life and user-friendiness. The Element Track is truly the best all-around instrument for hang gliding and paragliding pilots that want to fly higher, further, safer and faster or simply just want to get more out of their flights.
