Bryton Rider 60T cycle computer review£350.00

High-calibre cycle computer

BikeRadar score4/5

Bryton’s fully loaded 60 offers comprehensive, off-road friendly, computer-linked ride data and navigation. It uses a universal mount, and the included ANT+ cadence meter and HR belt connect easily.

The big screen can show up to eight cells of simultaneous data and operates with a mix of buttons and touchscreen. That puts it slightly behind the Garmin 800 and 1000 in terms of tech, but it often works better in rain or with gloves.

It’s preloaded with a 1:50,000 OS Adventurer map and you can download/upload data, including routes and training sessions, via the BrytonSport website. Battery life is enough for most big days out and it recharges quickly. Like all similar units, it’s not far off the price and size of a bike-linked smartphone though.

UK/EU pricing details:

  • £420 (with OS map, cadence/speed sensor and HRM)
  • £350 (without OS map, cadence/speed sensor and HRM)
  • Rider60 EU MSRP: €329 (device only E set) / €399 (device + HRM + combo sensor = T set)
  • Rider60 AUS MSRP: AU$469(device only E set) / AU$549 (device + HRM + combo sensor T set)

Freelance Writer, UK
Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
