BikeExchange-Jayco applying Giant-branded GPS pc that isn’t* a new Stages Dash

Dylan Groenewegen, Teniel Campbell, and a few other riders from Workforce BikeExchange-Jayco have a short while ago been spotted applying what at initially look appears to be a new cycling pc from the team’s bicycle sponsor, Huge. Even so, just after a small digging, factors are not what they to start with seem to be. 

More than the earlier month of racing, riders from the crew have been using numerous computer systems from current market leaders Garmin, but with the peloton’s previous devoted black tape hiding the branding. Much more recently, having said that, riders have been noticed utilizing desktops with a significant Huge logo on the entrance for all the globe to see.

Our very first views have been that of intrigue about Giant’s intentions and direction. Big now has a couple of cycling personal computers in its portfolio, the Axact and the Neos, but they’re aimed at the price range stop of the current market at £19.99 and £49.99 respectively. The personal computer applied by the BikeExchange Jayco team appears to be like neither of the previously mentioned – and would certainly be of bigger technical specs – so it in the beginning seems that Giant is taking the battle to Garmin and Wahoo in the market for the most effective cycling pcs. 

But as stated higher than, there is a twist. Thanks to the sharp-taking pictures photographers at Setmana Ciclista Valenciana, we can see that this new Large computer’s design title is Sprint M200.

‘Dash’ is the nomenclature made use of by Phases for its cycling computers, and a manufacturer as huge as Big wouldn’t just rip off a competitor’s branding so blatantly – nevertheless ironically the brand’s e-bike personal computer shows are offered the equivalent name of RideDash. 

We are pondering whether or not this Large computer system is a Stages in disguise, and subsequently, whether or not the Dash M200 is an as-however-unreleased substitution for the existing Stages Sprint M50. It undoubtedly looks plausible, and when you examine out the layout of the new laptop or computer, the chance only grows.

Huge does not at this time promote the Sprint M200 on its web site, but Googling the time period provides up the image over, remaining, which we have laid next to the current Levels Sprint M50, proper.
