RSP PRO EX2.0 cycle computer - in brief review

No-frills analysis

BikeRadar score4/5

Raleigh’s heart rate linked computer is a bit basic in design but you can’t beat it for data per dollar. Set-up is easy thanks to on-screen button press/menu prompts and the five-cell display mixes permanent HR, speed, time and temperature data with a prompted scrolling lower screen for the other 25 features.

This means relatively small, crowded numbers that can be hard to read in the rough, but there’s a backlight for night training.

The old-fashioned hard plastic sensor belt needs an accurate fit to connect consistently and can slip down and disconnect on rough descents.

The HR functions include adjustable limits and in/over/under-target zone timers as well as a pulse-related calorie burn estimate though, so you’re getting tons of useful training info for your money.

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.
