Bryton announced two new GPS bike computers at the Taipei International Cycle Show in March, the Bryton Rider 530 and the Bryton Rider 330. Both models feature full wireless connectivity and navigation that was missing from the Rider 310 that was released earlier this year.
Taipei based Bryton was founded in 2009 and has been building its presence and product lineup in the cycling, multisport and outdoor adventure markets with a range of Rider GPS bike computers and Amis and Cardio series GPS sports watches.
The Rider 530 allows you to create map routes from either of previous ride history, from the Plan Trip function in the Bryton App or using a third party website like Ride with GPS, Strava or any other that allows .gpx file downloads.
