BikeRadar verdict

60.0 out of 5 stars

"Easy-to-use unit in lots of colours but only for conventional bars, and some reliability issues"

Tuesday, March 1, 2011 12.00pm By

This super-light micro computer offers an essential info unit in loads of colours – but it may need tweaking to be totally reliable. The tiny head unit fits onto a neat dual direction mount secured with a tool-free jubilee clip band that’ll fit round bars or stems. 

Users of flatter bars or oversize stems will need an optional adaptor (£3/US$2), and if you want to mount the sensor at the rear of the bike for turbo trainer use, you'll need to go for the £79.99 cadence-equipped version.

Despite its tiny size, it’s clear to read, with the speed/double-decimal-point distance/time sub display also visible underneath. Modes change by pressing the whole head, making it easy to use, however thick your gloves or numb your hands. It comes in black, green, pink, red/white, red, white or yellow. 

Our two samples lost speed/distance signal regularly on rougher roads. However, feedback from other users suggests tweaking the battery contacts or isolating mount rattle with a bit of foam can solve the problem making it a sound – if not flawless – choice for fans of minimalism.
