One feature I love about the Garmin 800 is the percentage of grade reading. Unfortunately, due to my lack of speed on ascents of 15 to 20 percent, the Garmin does not register, and I am left guessing what I just climbed. This is where the Inclinometer from Cantitoe Road steps in. This device is a simple bubble level that shows both ascending and descending grade percentage. It attaches to the handlebars with a secure mount, and is easily readable while riding. The device is so simple, yet incredibly accurate, more so than computers that are relying on data from GPS that is read at intervals. If you absolutely need to know what kind of hill you are climbing at any given moment, the Inclinometer from Cantitoe Road is easily the best choice.
i totally just bought one.
So I received my inclinometer yesterday, and I have to say it’s a pretty handy little device. The intense fluorescent color is excellent for seeing every detail in bright daylight. It was a piece of cake to install and level out. I was only disappointed to find that the heroic climb I do into work every morning is only about a 3%-4% grade- which made me feel like a weenie… otherwise a super cool on-board tool. Thanks for the tip Velospeak!
