“For years we’ve produced innovative, breakthrough products for the home, the car and the club environment and now we’re looking into bringing similar advancements into the growing health and sports industry,” said Chris Ono, VP Product Planning.  “Pioneer’s new SGX-CA900 cyclocomputer and SGY-PM900 pedaling monitor are our first step to entering these industries.”

The goal of the products is to show cyclists how to pedal more efficiently.  The SGY-PM900 can measure the user’s left and right pedaling forces and provide detailed statistics of power, cadence and efficiency.

It can be matched with the SGX-CA900 cyclocomputer for displaying the performance data.  The computer has a 2 inch screen and mounts on the handlebars to show left/right fields, lap/total averages, GPS position, barometric pressure, ambient temperature, speed and more.

The devices will be offered in the first half of next year at prices to be announced. Will car audio shops get a discount?
