Product Description

For decades cyclists have spent time meticulously lining up a speed/cadence sensor with its corresponding magnet. We said enough is enough. Those minutes are better spent crushing Strava segments than crouched in the corner of the garage fidgeting with a tiny magnet.

Simply install the battery, orient the sensor to program it for speed or cadence, and mount it on either the non-drive side crank arm or the bike’s hub, front or rear will do. Our low-profile Magnetless Speed or Cadence sensor harnesses the advances in accelerometer technology to leave the magnet in the dust – along with your competition.
  • Connectivity: ANT+ & Bluetooth SMART
  • Firmware Updates: Bluetooth Over the Air (OTA)
  • Light Indicator: White (SPEED), Green (CADENCE)
  • Sleep Time: 5 Minutes
  • Accuracy: +/- 2%
  • Water Resistance: IPX7
  • Battery: CR2032
  • Battery Life: 200 Hours

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Excellent service
by Anonymous user on 15/10/2020

Great product, delivered on time. Fitted to the back wheel of a Boardman Hybrid which is attached to my turbo trainer. Easily and quickly connected to my Garmin watch which is now tracking speed and distance.

Speed cadence sensor
by Anonymous user on 16/04/2020

Bargain price. Set up was really simple, Bluetooth connection to iPhone is good. Appears to be accurate although I need to test this against GPS.

Perfect for indoor training
by Anonymous user on 25/01/2019

Excellent sensor. Great for indoor turbo training, you can use 2 sensors at a time to measure speed and cadence on your turbo, works with all software, apps, platforms. Very discreet looking, very light, (negligible weight).

Can I pair my cycle computer with a smartphone, power meter and other devices? 

You will need a wireless computer to sync with other devices. Most wireless computers sync using 2 wireless technologies – ANT+ & Bluetooth Smart.

ANT+

ANT+ enabled devices to talk to each other and present the information on a compatible device.

Bluetooth Smart

Bluetooth Smart is a low energy wireless technology designed for smart sport and fitness. The long battery life in sensors makes it ideal for regular use in cycling. 

Always check your smartphone’s OS and 3rd party devices are compatible.

Would a Watch / Fitness band be better for me?

If you’re looking for something more versatile then cycle watches are a great alternative. You can still gather data from cycling sensors, but you can also gather data for different sports too. They are great for triathletes and those that do multiple sports. 

You can easily transfer data from a road bike to a mountain bike, from running to swimming. There aren’t many outdoor exercises you can’t track.

What software & Apps should I use?

Strava

Strava is perhaps the most well-known cycling App / software around. All you need is to record your cycling with a compatible GPS device, upload it to Strava and then you can analyse your data. You can compare your performance to previous efforts, your mates and even pro riders - all of this, for free.

Garmin Connect

All Garmin computers and devices will work with Garmin Connect. This is an online service that allows you to analyse your performance data, and share it with your friends. Reports show you how you’re progressing and you can use the calendar feature to plan your training sessions over time.
