Bundling on-the-bike efficiency.
Pioneer took its team Belkin-approved SGX-CA500 Cycle-Computer and bundled it together with a heart rate monitor and cadence sensor, allowing you to become even further in tune with your on-the-bike efficiency.
Pioneer developed the computer to display all of you metrics in an easy-to-read and operate system. The unit seamlessly pairs with its power meter package, giving you instant feedback at your cockpit in terms of power output, pedaling efficiency, and many other essential metrics.
The Cycle-Computer is part of Pioneer's new Pedal Monitoring System, which displays power output for each leg, independently, as well as where that power is being applied. These metrics are displayed graphically on the screen, with arrows indicating contributing torque, and other arrows indicating losses. The reason Pioneers does this is fairly straightforward — even if the total power is high, if the first set of arrows are large, some of the rider's power is being wasted. Conversely, even if the total power is low, many secondary arrows show pedaling is effective, and little power is being wasted. This gives you an exact visual representation of how effective your pedaling is, in a real-time, out-in-front format.
Pioneer included six preconfigured screens, each featuring preset screens that display a range of one to nine metrics at a time. You're able to turn individual screens on and off, as well as being able to customize the screens to your liking. And, like a smartphone, simply swipe left or right to move to the next screen, and tap the box for any metric to make it expand. This operation sequence makes it simple to navigate while on the road, which also bypasses the multiple menu screens that so many computers are plagued with.
After the ride you're able to upload your log data to Pioneer's cloud-based Cyclo-Sphere website using the built-in WiFi feature, which is an online training center that lets you analyze left and right side pedaling efficiency, power, and force vectors, among other types of data displayed in easy-to-understand graphs and numerical displays.
The Pioneer Color Touchscreen Cycle-Computer is ANT+ compatible, has a built-in GPS receiver, and it comes with a handlebar bracket, Micro USB cable, safety strap, and user manual. This bundle also includes Pioneer's SGY-HR500 heart rate monitor and SGY-CS500 ANT+ speed and cadence sensors. The unit has a claimed weight of 75 grams, excluding the bracket, and it comes with a 2-year warranty.

This is a great computer.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I recently purchased the Pioneer SGX-CA500 bundle with a HR strap and cadence/speed sensor to go with Pioneer power meter. Although I do not have the power meter yet, I've used the computer on several rides and I must say, it's fantastic. It does take some time to learn all the functions and the touch screen does take some time getting used to but once you figure it out, it's pretty simple. Coming from a Garmin Edge 500, the WiFi feature of the SGX-CA500 makes uploading to Cyclo-Sphere and Strava hassle free. I had no issues pairing the computer to the existing sensors on my bikes and it's worked flawless so far. The included mount is very solid and keeps the computer on very secure. It also looks very cool on the bike. Although I haven't used the included cadence/speed sensor yet, it looks to be very well made. I would recommend this computer to anyone whether they have a pioneer power meter or not. So far, it has been every bit as good if not better than the Garmin it replaced.
