Item # CAT000Q

Skips the satellite for simplicity and reliability.

It's true that the "old school" onboard cycling computer is facing an uphill battle against ever-trickier technological foe, such as smartphone-based training apps or GPS-linked units derived from automobile navigation products. Use some of these space-age systems, however, and you may notice their consistent inconsistency. Being dependent on satellites out in space makes it especially tricky to reliably track exact position, which can lead to sometimes screwy numbers, particularly if you ride around lots of tall buildings or in highly topographically diverse areas. That's why we love simple, Earth-bound systems like the CatEye Strada Slim Wireless Cycling Computer. It's simple, precise, and reliable to a NASA-rivaling degree.

The Strada Slim builds on the legacy of the massively popular CatEye Strada computer, whose previous generation saw multiple permutations. The Slim carries over all of the features of the classic Strada, only in a new, sleek design that increases screen size by 23% while reducing chassis size by 35%. Both numbers are notable: the former, given that a larger screen helps you read the data you need quickly, which is nice when you're bombing a descent at 40+ mph, and the latter, because a cleaner profile and lighter design is something any rider appreciates of something they're going to bolt to their prized road machine. There's also a 47% thinner fork-mounted sensor that can now be mounted inside the fork blades, making it nearly invisible.

The Strada Slim's features do indeed stack up to its more advanced rivals, too. The heart rate monitor (strap sold separately) is a vital training tool, of course, and while the Slim doesn't offer a cadence feature, everything else is there. Individual ride distance, and well as total ridden, are tracked by the odometer feature. You can evaluate your current speed as well as average speed and maximum speed on your last ride. Both 12- and 24-hour clock modes are possible, too, but what's not is for your Slim's wireless computer to begin mixing signals with other systems in the group. That's because the Slim communicates with its wireless sensor across 30 different identification channels, each of which must register with the head unit for the signal to be recognized as the appropriate one. In other words, fear not for your Slim to read data from anyone else's bike — it's yours and yours alone.

The CatEye Strada Slim Wireless Cycling Computer requires one CR2032 lithium battery (included) and mounts with the company's tool-free FlexTight mounting bracket. It's available in the colors Matte Black, Silver, Red, and White.
