Device Spotlight: Hammerhead Karoo 2

The next-generation cycling computer is here, The Hammerhead Karoo 2 brings the power of advanced navigation and intuitive software to your handlebars, all on a stunning, smartphone-like display.

The Hammerhead Karoo 2 has the largest colour spectrum and twice the pixel density of its closest rival, all on a smartphone-like responsive touchscreen. Seamless Strava Live segments experience, the best mapping and navigation, and highly accurate data, allowing you to explore and achieve your goals. Regular software updates are introducing new features and enhancements to the Hammerhead Karoo 2 which keeps it at the cutting edge of the cycling world ecosystem.

The built-in GPS computer provides turn-by-turn navigation for every route, with audio cues and visual indicators that mean you’ll never miss a turn. You won’t miss anything important out on those long rides as the Hammerhead Karoo 2 enables you to receive notifications of incoming phone calls and text messages.

 The Hammerhead Karoo 2 features include 12-hour battery life, 32 GB storage, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. The housing of the Karoo 2 is plastic and the high-resolution 3.2-inch glass display is done by Dragontrail. You can buy full mounting kits directly from Hammerhead but I would recommend also buying a screen protector as an extra layer of protection.

The Hammerhead Karoo 2 is currently been used by the Israel start-up nation team with rumours strongly suggesting more teams looking to adopt the new Karoo 2 as well.

If you want to reduce some glare on your Hammerhead Karoo 2, you can buy an anti-glare screen protector here.
