Bontrager Trip 5W computer review£36.99

Intuitive device

BikeRadar score4/5

Bontrager's big-screen unit displays all the essentials in an easy to read format. The low profile mount can be used with a fixed handlebar clip or zip-ties for stem mounting, and the fork sensor attaches with zip-ties or rubber bands.

The spoke magnet works with round or flat spokes and setup is easy via the two positive click buttons on the bottom edge of the head unit. Bontrager have maximised screen size on the head unit, so it offers a large current speed figure. The big scrollable sub-menu display (trip/ time/distance/average and max speed) is shown at the bottom, and temperature featured permanently on the left-hand centre.

There’s a pace arrow above the temperature readout, and a backlight completes the comprehensive, legible display. The analogue wireless transmission was trouble free, whatever potential disturbance there was in the force. Overall, this was a great unit to use.
