Guess what? The days of spending over $200 on cycling computers with wireless technology and heart rate readings are over. With the new CatEye Strada Digital Cadence Wireless Computer, you gain access to all of the crucial cycling metrics, as well as cadence and heart rate. It's time to take your training to the next level.
CatEye designed the Strada Digital with its ease-of-use at the forefront of design. Accordingly, its ClickTec design provides a simple-to-use, single button operation system. So, you can easily navigate through metrics like current speed, trip distance, elapsed time, average speed, maximum speed, heart rate, and cadence. That's right, for under $100 you get access to cadence readings.
This is made possible by CatEye's ISCTec sensor. It mounts to the chainstay of your frame and is responsible for both speed and cadence readings. And as a technology update to problems that we've experience from CatEye in the past, the Strada's wireless communications are now transmitted through 30 different ID codes. This way, there's no confusion or intermixing of your readings while you're riding in the peloton, or on secondary bikes.
Don't think that we've neglected the importance of the Strada heart rate monitor. With the Cateye HRM chest strap (sold separately) you can maximize your training and racing by learning your sustainable output within your heart rate zones. And to support this training method, the Strada is capable of computing readings ranging from 0 to 199 bpm. Now, you have the metrics to tell you if jumping off of the front is possible on a sustained climb.
Another couple of key features are the Strada's minimal size and weight. The CPU measures out to 46.5 x 31 x 16mm, and it only weighs around 20 grams. Additionally, the CPU setup is a simple affair, as is its mounting setup. In fact, CatEye includes its tool-free FlexTight bracket that mounts to either your stem or bars.
The CatEye Strada Digital Cadence Wireless Computer is available in the color Black and in one size. Each computer includes a CR2032 battery, FlexTight mounting bracket, and an ISCTec sensor.
Having a speedometer and an odometer on such a small interface is quite amazing. The actual computer itself was much smaller in size than I had envisioned but it is perfect for mounting onto your bike as that way your field of vision isn't compromised in any way. Further, for us bikers, it is always interesting and nice to be able to easily access information about distance and speed for training purposes as well as having the available heart rate monitor, sold separately, available for those of us on strict training regimes. Lastly, the single button system for switching between modes is incredibly handy as you only have to deal with one button to click while you're riding if you want to change modes and not crash.
This is a great bike comp with cadence for the price. I got this for someone that doesn't need all the bells and whistles but something with cadence for sure. Seems to do the trick so far and will update later with more use. We are happy with the look of the and the design is sleek!

There is no Chest Band and they don't seem to sell one either. Is this some kind of a bait and switch.???
