GI­ANT NEOSTRACK

220 Triathlon Magazine - - KIT ZONE -

£149.99 Only a brand as pow­er­ful as Gi­ant would branch out from their bread-and­but­ter of bikes and ride into the crowded bike-com­puter mar­ket, but they’ve wisely col­lab­o­rated with Bry­ton to add cred­i­bil­ity to their mar­ket­ing reach. You also get a lot for your money, its GPS pick­ing up stan­dards like dis­tance ridden, speed, av­er­age speed, plus a host of al­ti­tude met­rics. With the nec­es­sary add-ons, you can tap into power, heart rate and even Shi­mano Di2, where the easy-to-read screen dis­plays which gear you’re in. Con­nec­tion for each is via Blue­tooth or ANT+. A feather in its nav­i­ga­tion cap is its map­ping ca­pa­bil­i­ties – im­pres­sive at this price – that you can up­load via a GPX file from Strava, from pre­vi­ous rides or via the NeosTrack app. The app’s not as in­tu­itive as Garmin’s so al­low time to ac­cli­ma­tise. The unit dis­plays up to six pages with 10 data fields each, and is mounted via a stan­dard stem/bar mount or an out-in-front mount. On pa­per, again that’s im­pres­sive for the price, though the out-in-front mount isn’t the most sta­ble, es­pe­cially on pot­holed roads. The Neostrack has an ex­cel­lent bat­tery life of 30hrs. gi­ant-bi­cy­cles.com

VER­DICT A FEA­TURE-LOADED BIKE COM­PUTER AT A GOOD PRICE AND EX­CEL­LENT BAT­TERY LIFE
