Sette Alpha X 17 Function Wireless Comp with CadenceLet's face it. Up until now, wireless computers have always been a compromise. If you wanted a wireless computer without breaking the bank, that meant giving up on having cadence. If you wanted to go deep with a wireless computer with wireless cadence, that meant reaching deep into your bank account.
works fine if set up just right. I was getting intermediate readings until I tilted the sending unit out toward the crankarm, and put the crankarm magnet on the underside of the crank to allow the sending unit to get a better signal line to the head unit on the handlebar. It would not work hardly at all with the head unit on the stem, and was intermittent until I set it up as outlined above. Works fine now.
I recently purchased the Sette computer, specifically looking for a wireless comp w/ cad, that would allow me to view 2 to 3 items while training on the road or on rollers. Not only does this product show 3 clear numbers but it SCANS thru: Speed, Max, Total; Cadence, Max, total, time, clock, Calories, & more. It is more than I anticipated at an amazing price! I'm an avid cyclist, on the Road since the mid-70's, & used a number of cycle odometers & computers thru the years. So I'm familiar w/ what works or not. I did not want a GPS system. (Guess I'm old school) The Sette is easy to set up, however one must follow the directions closely. I would highly recommend this product to my cycling friends.
Bought this for my road bike. Install was fairly simple, the magnet/cadence sensor was a bit finicky, but overall easy. I find the display nice, I am just not used to have so many functions and having to search for the one I'm looking for. Works fine for my basic use.
Once i got it hooked up, battery in sensor was dead, replaced battery and it works good now, Haven't hit the rough trails or water yet. But for the cost great deal
This thing is spot on with average speeds an distances I upload from my phone to strava. I would not recommend for mtb, the cadence/speed sensor would slide out of place. The cadence/speed sensor filled with water when I was washing my bike, so watch out when spraying a hose at it. I've had no problems with rain rides so it is mostly waterproof. Also make sure to tighten down the zip ties extra tight or the sensors will slide out of place an you will not get readings.
