When connected to an Elite or Tacx ANT+ trainer, the Cyclo 505 will be able to provide the resistance that fits the selected route. Whether it is a Surprise Me, an A to B or any other track, the device simulates the elevation and profile of the route, directly on your trainer. This new feature is compatible with Elite Digital Qubo, Tacx Bushido & Genius trainers. Users can now ride the Tour de France in their own living room!
Improved power meter support ensures that the Cyclo ANT+ device works seamlessly with the brands Quarq, SRM and CycleOps Powertap
You can now connect your iPhone or Android device to your Cyclo 500 and 505 via Bluetooth®, to receive incoming calls and see who is calling. You are able to read incoming texts and even answer calls when wearing a headset with microphone (wired or Bluetooth®). This new functionality ensures connectivity during a ride in a safe way. Users that don’t want to be disturbed while cycling can easily switch this option off
Phone connectivity does not end with text messages or incoming calls. If the sound alerts from the Cyclo are not enough, users can now listen to voice instructions via their headset (Android only). The music control option allows users to control the music on their phone: play, pause, stop or move on to the next song, right from the Cyclo screen.
The Cyclo 305, 315 and 505 have been upgraded with improved sensor handling. Connected sensors are now linked exclusively to the user's profile, so users no longer experience the inconvenience of accidentally connecting with each others sensors when cycling in groups. Bluetooth® heart rate and speed-cadence sensors are now supported as well.
Cyclo 305, 315 and 505 devices can now read and record shift information from the Shimano Di2 electronic shifting units. When using the new Di2 Wireless Unit (required), users can view their current gearing and battery status on their device and analyse the gear data after their ride.
If a road is blocked, users can easily plan a detour via the button on the map screen.
The Cyclo 300, 310 and 500 series now feature improved MTB route calculation, by displaying the percentage of unpaved roads for any Surprise Me track, in the MTB profile.
The new “Where am I-function” is the real safety deal. Available on the full Cyclo 300, 310 and 500 families, this new function shows the current address, along with longitude and latitude. So when a user is stranded in the middle of nowhere and needs someone to pick him up, the exact location is instantly shown. And when using an Android phone combined with a Cyclo 500 series, it is even possible to send a text to a contact, directly from the same screen.
