Bike electronics comprise a wide range of technological devices that can be used for anything from course wayfinding and multi-day backcountry navigation to collecting, transmitting, and analysis of health and cycling data, interfacing with the bicycle, the body, or both. They include sensors, watches, wearables, head units, GPS devices, headphones, and power meters.
These systems are absolutely invaluable for tracking performance goals, training regimens, focusing power output, and monitoring heart rate, cadence, speed, elevation, and interval training to track and monitor performance gains over time.
Dedicated GPS head units are indispensable tools for mapping, wayfinding, and navigation. They provide the ability to create, load, share, and follow pre-existing routes and courses, allowing reliable and stable route navigation deep into remote areas regardless of cell service. Dedicated cycling computers have become a necessary navigational component for gravel, adventure, endurance racing, and backcountry mountain biking.
