Bryton totally revamps range of GPS computers

A closer look at new Rider 410, Rider 450 and Aero 60 computers

Bryton was one of the first major rivals to Garmin in the bike GPS market, and after a few quiet years, it’s now brought three new activity-specific products to market; the road focused Aero 60, the mountain bike focused Rider 450 and the 410, which is designed for general cycling use.

While Garmin is still the market leader, Bryton is the next biggest player, with these three well-priced Garmin alternatives poised to contest Garmin’s dominance.

The team behind the latest generation units have plenty of experience in the GPS world, bringing experience from Magellan, Mio, MiTac and Navman.

Bryton CEO Samuel Wang told BikeRadar that “we are looking to build a complete bike computer product line, and since last year, we’ve been working with pro cyclists and the new products are built with their direct feedback.”

The new models (Aero 60 and Rider 450) both use Openstreetmap for their base mapping and both can link with Training Peaks for workouts. As the mapping is built in, it means the 410 doesn’t rely on your phones mapping (so no battery drain on your phone).

The Rider 410 is Bryton's first unit with full GNSS support (so that’s GPS, Glonass, BDS, Galileo and QZSS protocols.)

It has a 2.3in black and white screen (the same size as a Garmin 510). It also has ANT+ and BLE sensor support, so it should be able to talk to your HRM and power meter. All of the data produced by the computer is compatible with Strava, Training Peaks, Golden Cheetah, Selfloops and more.

The Aero 60 is, as the name suggests, an aerodynamically designed head unit replete with a dimpled pattern surface and a sleek out-front mount.

Like the 450 and 410, the Aero comes with Openstreetmap mapping built in and the same five satellite-wide ranging GPS coverage.

The head unit also offers the same Ant+ and BLE sensor support along with third-party data support and smartphone notifications.

Over the 410 the Aero 60 adds full ESS support, so it will communicate with Campagnolo EPS, Shimano Di2 (providing you have the BLE aerial fitted) and directly with SRAM eTap to show on screen front and rear gear selection and battery level indication.

The final unit is the Rider 450,  the off-road equivalent of the Aero 60, offering much the same performance and functionality.

Like the Aero 60, it also offers wireless data, uploading to all of the major three party software platforms.
