CatEye’s Stealth 10 is a practical, weatherproof, essential-data GPS computer with online setup and syncing at a great price. It also has some unique features that make it particularly mountain bike friendly.
There are no sensors to get knocked in transit/crashes, and this means setup is easy too. The Jubilee clip mount fits securely on stems, bars or top tubes. There’s no way for water to get into the sealed unit, which charges and uploads/downloads via a spring-loaded USB ‘shoe’. It occasionally takes a bit of wiggling to get it to connect to the free CatEye Sync software, but you can set up the basic functions on your home computer and upload them rather than fighting with tiny buttons. You can upload directly to sites such as Strava and Training Peaks or CatEye Atlas too.
The power button is hidden underneath, which irritated us to start with. Once you’re used to reaching round though, the fact you can’t accidentally turn it on/off is an advantage. Once connected, the single front function button simplifies operation, and the fixed speed digit at the top, clock display in the middle and essential info scroll at the bottom are easy to see thanks to a constant low-level backlight. There’s an ANT+ compatible Stealth 50 that syncs with cadence, rear wheel speed and heart-rate sensors too.
