Bike computer: all data at a glance

With a bike computer, you can monitor and record all important data such as speed, distance and other parameters on the go. Models that you can also use for navigation thanks to the GPS function are very practical here.

At Transa, you can find various bike computers and miscellaneous accessories such as handlebar mounts, memory magnets, water and splash protection covers and heart rate belts.

Bike computers: practical, reliable and easy to use

Choose the bike computer model that best fulfils your cycling needs. The bike computer should also meet the following requirements to ensure it lasts for every tour.

You can recognise a good bike computer by the following features:

  • It is small and compact so that it can be easily installed on any handlebar without taking up too much space.
  • The display is clear and easy to read. The fonts are large enough and the colours are high-contrast so that you can always read all the information clearly.
  • The operation is simple and intuitive.
  • Fixing it to the handlebar is simple and straightforward.
  • Integrated lighting ensures that you can read the data on the bike computer even at dusk or in the dark.
  • The material is robust and can withstand the shocks of riding.
  • Thanks to the USB cable, you can download updates to the bike computer and analyse and save all data on mobile devices or your PC at any time.
  • The battery lasts as long as possible (at best at least 8 hours) and can be recharged quickly so that it is ready for the next tour in no time.
  • Bike computers are designed to be waterproof so that a rain shower won't affect the device.

Full control

Depending on the model, a bike computer offers you different functions. Typical functions include displaying the time travelled, distance, speed and, of course, heart rate. It all depends on the purpose for which you want to use your bike computer.

For ambitious and recreational athletes

If you want to keep fit and healthy through cycling, then functions such as heart rate monitoring and the calculation of calories burned are important to you. At the same time, the distance travelled, which is done using GPS. This is why most bike computers are also equipped with GPS functions. Heart rate monitoring is usually carried out using a chest strap (transmitter). The data transmitted from there is analysed directly by the bike computer or with suitable computer programs or smartphone apps. This recorded and analysed data gives you a good overview of your training status.

For mountain and off-road

If your training also requires data on incline and decline, then your bike computer should be equipped with barometric or GPS-based altitude measurement. GPS altimeters are still considered by mountain specialists to be less reliable than barometric altimeters. This is mainly due to the fact that GPS reception cannot be consistently guaranteed in dense forests, for example. If you are frequently travelling off-road, your bike computer should also be equipped with a good route and navigation function. Simply choose the model that best suits your requirements from the Transa range.
