The new Bryton Rider S500 cycle computer, which launches today, is “more capable and more resourceful than other devices in its class” according to the Taiwanese brand. With its Google voice-activated search function and touchscreen it aims to navigate its way into a gap that the two biggest players might have left open.

‘S’ stands for sport: the Rider S500 is the flagship model in a new ‘performance line’ of GPS computers for Bryton. It has the pro team credentials to match: the S500 has been developed with UCI WorldTeam Wanty-Gobert. According to Bryton it has a design that is “optimised for pro cyclists, combining the power, durability and accuracy of its predecessors with the versatility and advanced features that the professionals expect all in an enhanced aerodynamic shell.”
