The S500 constantly drops connectivity to my smart trainer. Both are fully updated on firmware (as far as I know for Bryton because the software to update firmware is shady at best). This is such a frustrating situation as 3/5 of my weekday rides are indoors on the smart trainer. I have reached out several times to fix this and no one has responded.
My first bike computer. Delivery was quick and the tracking was spot on. I’ve only had it out on two rides to date but so far it’s pretty cool! Love the features and price point!
Compact Design | Optimized for Competition
The Rider S500 features a new sleek and compact design that is optimized for pro- and novice cyclists alike, combining the raw power, durability and accuracy of its predecessors with the versatility and advanced features that professionals expect – all in an enhanced aerodynamic shell.
Whether you are exploring new regions or following a downloaded route, the Rider S500 is the perfect riding companion, providing turn-by-turn navigation and advanced guidance data, including street names (when connected to Bryton Active), POI’s & Peaks (customizable in Bryton Active), distance and direction information, and more all on pre-downloaded regional OSM (OpenStreetMaps) maps.
The Bryton Rider S500 speaks your language! With connection to the internet, the Rider S500 eliminates the need for on-screen keyboards by providing Google voice search which is available in over 100 languages, offering a quicker, more intuitive and all-around better way to search addresses or POIs while riding on the road, adventuring on the trail, or anywhere you find yourself!
Wrong turn? No problem! The Rider S500 helps you to always keep you on course with auto-rerouting. While connected to the Bryton Active app, the Rider S500 will automatically reroute your course if a different path is taken, and if connection is lost, the Rider S500 will point you in the right direction to get you back on track!
Navigation Back to Start
After a prolonged or complicated ride, effortlessly identify the fastest way back to where you started. The Rider S500 will use your current location to determine the most direct path and generate detailed turn-by-turn directions for your return journey.
Share your real-time location with friends and family using the new Bryton Live Track feature. Simply generate a share link right from your phone and share to any messaging app with the press of a button. With the Live Track link, anyone can follow along from the web and view not only your real-time location, but also current speed, ride time, trip time, distance and last updated time!
Reach New Heights
Climb to new heights with the Climb Challenge feature. When approaching a climb, the Rider S500 will change to the Climb Section page, providing an overview of a route's climb segments. The Climb Challenge screen also features a graphical summary with multiple climbs, vivid color climb segments, distance, altitude & ascent, and start & end points, providing easy access and ride information at-a-glance.
Customize Your Climb
When creating or importing a route, the Bryton Active app will automatically generate climb data for your Bryton, Strava, Komoot, or any other 3rd party routes imported into the app, creating a Climb-Challenge compatible ride for the Rider S500. After reviewing the ride, you can choose to further customize these climbs by adjusting the total quantity, range of climbs, start/end points, and more via the Bryton Active app!
Advanced Workout Features
With a new graphical workout overview with zoom support and advanced new features, including real-time intensity adjustment, TrainingPeaks support, a new resilience workout mode and workout note features (to add notes from the Bryton Active app or TrainingPeaks), trainings on the Rider S500 just got even better! View remaining workout progress, customizable power zones on the target power page and more, all with vivid graphical representation!
Experience endless possibilities from the comfort of home with Virtual Ride Simulation. Utilizing ANT+ FE-C compatibility, the Rider S500 will work seamlessly with most smart trainers and can simulate recorded tracks from the Bryton Active App. These converted tracks can simulate different gradients which better emulate the on-road experience.
Bike Radar Compatibility
Utilizing ANT+ Rear-View Radar System compatibility, cyclists can view vehicles coming from behind up to 150m with notifications to keep alert. The strips located on the right side of every data page will signal in various colors and give off a beeping sound to warn users of approaching traffic.
Incorporating Shimano Steps as well as ANT+ LEV e-bike support for compatible brands, the Bryton Rider S500 brings the future to cycling. After pairing with a compatible E-Bike, the Rider S500 can display various e-bike data on-screen, including assist mode, assist level shifting mode, e-bike battery, travel range and rear gear position.
Never worry about missing important phone calls, emails or texts during rides! With customizable configurations with the Bryton Active App, the Rider S500 displays on-screen notifications whenever calls, emails or texts are received.
