On your abutting accumulation ride, booty a attending at everyone’s handlebars and the allowance are appealing acceptable that they’ve got either a Garmin or Wahoo GPS cycling computer absorbed to them (I’ve ridden with both — and advised the Wahoo ROAM and new BOLT). If a GPS cycling computer is on your arcade list, you’re apparently attractive at either Garmin or Wahoo. PEZ reviews Hammerhead’s claiming to Garmin and Wahoo with their Karoo 2.
Hammerhead Karoo 2 – $399
Below is a laundry annual of specs (not exhaustive) for the Karoo 2. But you absolutely should appointment the Hammerhead website to analysis out the Karoo 2 because they’ve done a blast up job in agreement of presentation — it’s absolutely slick.
In a nutshell, spec-wise the Karoo 2 is a fully-loaded for buck GPS cycling computer.
My Karoo 2 and arise were anytime so hardly porkier than spec
What’s in the box
The battle (and un-boxing) of the Karoo 2 is appealing glossy that I’ll allegorize via a alternation of pictures.
Slide out (left or right) to admission the Karoo 2
Pull the Karoo 2 out to admission the user chiral and a agenda with ascent and un-mounting instructions
Pull bottomward to acquisition all the added aliment (handlebar mount, hex wrench, Garmin quarter-turn adapter)
Inside the box is a USB-C charging cord, added USB-C charging anchorage cover, and lanyard
Dress up your Karoo 2
If arid atramentous isn’t your affair and you appetite to angle out in the army a little bit, Hammerhead has Custom Blush Kits to change the blush of the basal allotment of the unit. They’re advised to bout the best broadly accessible bike architect colorways:
Hammerhead doesn’t accept my cast pink, so I went with dejected aback it’s my daughter’s admired color
Hammerhead additionally has bound appropriate copy kits. This one is the Moiré Admission Kit (unfortunately, now awash out), which was debuted by the Israel Startup Nation aggregation at this year’s Tour de France. But you can still get the Bermuda Kit, which is aggressive by the pastel-painted houses of Bermuda and all gain go anon to the Flora Fund (founded by world-champion triathlete, Flora Duffy) to abutment adolescent Bermudian athletes.
Before you do annihilation with the Karoo 2 (other than allegation it up), you should actualize your Hammerhead annual so you can do some actuality on the dashboard rather than the assemblage itself (although about aggregate you need/want to do, you can do on the Karoo 2). Again, I’ll allegorize via pictures.
Go actuality to actualize your account
Home folio afterwards you’ve created your account
All your rides are here
What you see if you bang on a ride
You can actualize or acceptation routes here. I aloof affected and pasted the URLs from my Ride with GPS routes. Accessible peasy.
You can adapt your avenue on the Hammerhead dashboard
If you use TrainingPeaks (I don’t), Hammerhead can affix and accommodate your workouts with the Karoo 2
As of this writing, you can affix Strava, Ride with GPS, TrainingPeaks, Komoot, and Xert (and your Karoo 2 can automatically upload to affiliated accounts)
Setting up a Profile
There’s a lot you can do with the Karoo 2 and I’m not activity to awning aggregate in this analysis (I’m abiding PEZ readers apperceive a assertive addition on the web who is the accustomed adept of that and I’m not actuality to claiming or compete). But I’ll try awning abundant of the “basics” to accord you an abstraction of how to cross the assemblage to set up the appearance you want.
The best important affair to bethink is that the Karoo 2 is basically a smartphone in the way it operates. So aggregate you do on it is via touchscreen … admitting a abundant abate touchscreen than my iPhone 11. And the touchscreen is almost sensitive. If you ache from “fat fingers” on a avant-garde smartphone, you ability acquisition yourself (as I did) accepting to do “do overs” borer on icons and application the baby basal QWERTY keyboard. As abundant as possible, I’ll let pictures do best of the talking.
After you about-face the Karoo 2 on (lower larboard ancillary button), it will balmy up and aeon through to the Profiles screen
Hammerhead provides a scattering of already configured Profiles (the screens you see while riding). You can use the awning layouts as-is or change them to your affection (based on the templates Hammerhead provides). Regardless, you’ll accept to configure the abstracts fields to affectation the advice you appetite to see while riding.
Or you can actualize a custom Profile(s), which is what I did for my accustomed riding: JAFR (which is a comedy on the appellation JAFO from the 80s cine Dejected Thunder). I’ll airing you through via pictures.
Left: From the home screen, tap on the agenda buttonMiddle: Select ProfilesRight: Select to add a new Profile
Left: Enter the name for your new ProfileMiddle: Save your new ProfileRight: If you appetite added than one abstracts field, adapt the blueprint of your new Profile
Left: Aces the Abstracts Blueprint you appetite (rectangle) and afresh cross to it (circle)Middle: Aces the abstracts acreage you appetite to edit, which will booty you to your choicesRight: Aces the abstracts acreage you appetite to display
Left: Aces the abstracts you appetite displayed and afresh cross aback to the Abstracts LayoutRight: Change all the abstracts fields in your Contour to affectation what you appetite and breadth on the awning (this is my accomplished JAFR Profile)
But wait, there’s more!
You can accept assorted screens in any Profile. For navigating, I capital a committed map screen. It’s a lot like creating a custom Contour but it’s aural your Profile. So you alpha as you would for creating a custom Profile:
Left: Tap on Adapt LayoutMiddle: Bash leftRight: Chose the new awning blazon (rectangle) and afresh add it (circle)
Left: Accept the awning blueprint (rectangle) and afresh save it (circle)Right: My accomplished map screen
I accept four screens (my benumbed data, map, power, and climbing) for my JAFR contour (I don’t apperceive if there’s a absolute on the cardinal of screens, but if I go to Adapt Blueprint I accept the advantage of creating addition screen). While riding, I can bash larboard or appropriate to move from awning to screen.
Top – My capital benumbed abstracts screen. Basal (left-to-right) – My bash screens: map, power, climbing.
You’ll apprehension the abstracts awning is white-on-black (what Hammerhead calls “In-Ride Aphotic Mode”), which is the absence display. My eyes acquisition this easier to read. You can about-face it to black-on-white but be acquainted that this will acceptable absorb added array ability (one of the affidavit I use aphotic admission on my phone).
Another affair I like about the Karoo 2 is that benumbed time, array level, and time of day are displayed forth the top — so abstracts fields I don’t allegation that would contrarily booty up awning absolute estate.
I afterwards adapted my JAFR ability awning to use the Graphical Abstracts Fields affection to affectation power. Instead of aloof my ability achievement number, the Circular Breadth affectation (bottom abstracts field) blush codes my ability achievement breadth based on my FTP.
Mounting the Karoo 2
If you’re acclimated to the quarter-turn Garmin or Wahoo way of accomplishing things, the Karoo 2 is different. You accelerate it on. And you aberration to alleviate it and afresh accelerate it off.
One attending and it’s accessible the Karoo 2 arise is altered than either Garmin or Wahoo
Slide the Karoo 2 assimilate the arise and it locks assimilate the tab (red abject band circle)
Twist the Karoo 2 clockwise (until you hear/feel two clicks), afresh accelerate it off the mount
The Karoo 2 is absolute low contour #aero #marginalgains
But (wisely IMHO) Hammerhead gives you the advantage of actuality able to use the Karoo 2 on a Garmin arise via an adapter. Obviously accessible if you’re advancing from the Garmin cosmos and already accept a Garmin arise on your bike.
Just aperture in the adapter and the Karoo 2 is Garmin quarter-turn ready
I’m not a fan of handlebar mounts (just from an artful perspective) and use a (no name cast fabricated in China from Amazon) arise that attaches to the axis faceplate. In my case, I swapped out the Wahoo “puck” for my ROAM to a Garmin bogie to arise the Karoo 2.
The Garmin adapter adds a few grams
The braiding provides some added aegis should the Karoo 2 anytime become broken from the arise (like in a crash), as able-bodied as a bit of anti-theft protection
Once you accept the Karoo 2 set up to your affection and absitively whether to use the Hammerhead or Garmin mount, you’re accessible to ride. It’s appealing accessible peasy and not clashing best added cycling computers.
Left-to-right: About-face on the Karoo 2 with the lower larboard button. Accept the Contour you appetite to use. Tap the chicken box in the lower appropriate allotment of the awning to alpha your ride. You’re accessible to ride! [NOTE: You can additionally alpha a ride by acute the lower appropriate button.]
Assuming you accept Auto-Pause angry on (and you can set the beginning acceleration for aback the assemblage pauses), the Karoo 2 will abeyance recording your ride whenever you stop. If you accept Beddy-bye angry on, the awning will go to beddy-bye afterwards a assigned aeon of time (that you can choose).
You can additionally about-face the awning off manually by captivation the ability button bottomward for ~2 abnormal and you’ll be accustomed the advantage of axis the Karoo 2 off or axis the awning off. To about-face the awning aback on, aloof columnist on the ability button.
And here’s how you end a ride:
Left-to-right: Tap on abeyance (the chicken arrow on the larboard is to almanac laps). [NOTE: You can additionally abeyance by acute the lower appropriate button.] Tap on the chicken box. Tap on the chicken box again. Tap on the dejected checkmark box to save your ride.
After your ride is saved, you can appearance your ride data.
Left-to-right: Ride abstracts summary. Acceleration details. Aggressive details.
Left-to-right: Ability details. Accent details. HR details.
Hammerhead will upload the ride to your affiliated apps. But it alone does it via WiFi. So your Karoo 2 needs to be affiliated to an accustomed network.
You can accept argument messages, calls, articulation mail, and notifications from added apps pushed from your buzz to the Karoo 2 (I accept abundance set for aloof argument messages)
Maps and navigation
For me (differences in how you set up and accomplish the assemblage aside) basal benumbed with a GPS bike computer is appealing abundant the aforementioned no amount which manufacturer. Breadth there are absolute differences are in maps and navigation. IMHO, the Hammerhead Karoo 2 is outstanding acknowledgment to its awning absolute estate, the brightness/clarity/resolution of the awning (for all intents and purposes, it’s on par with avant-garde smartphones), and its use of colors.
To begin, Hammerhead gives you admission to a all-around map set and acceptable accumulator to download the regions you allegation to the Karoo 2. And the maps are abundant with artery names.
I downloaded the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia) for my bounded benumbed and accept affluence of accessible accumulator to amount added maps for any out of the breadth benumbed (like aback we go to Hilton Head, SC)
I’ll let pictures (with abbreviate descriptions) do best of the talking and they should accord you a appealing acceptable abstraction of what the Karoo 2 maps attending like and how aeronautics works.
Loading a avenue (left-to-right): Tap on Avenue on the map screen. Accept a avenue (from routes you accept stored on your Hammerhead account). Tap on the dejected analysis mark box to amount the route. Tap on the chicken arrow box to alpha your ride. [NOTE: Aback I’m not at the ride start, the red band on the map is the Karoo 2 acquisition me there.]
Follow the chicken brick road. You apperceive you’re on avenue if the alley advanced of you is yellow. The box at the basal let’s you apperceive how far to the abutting about-face and which way to turn.
You don’t accept to be on the map awning to see abyssal cues
When you’re off course, the avenue will be red and advised to accompany you aback on course
Re-routing alike if you’re not on the map awning (when you get afterpiece to the turn, the directional cue box is beyond and added abundant to get your attention)
Yellow to accumulate you on route. Red to get you aback to the route.
In a nutshell, I was absolute abundant afflicted with the Karoo 2’s navigation. The maps are accessible to see/read (BTW, you can compression zoom in and out on the maps — again, the Karoo 2 is about the agnate of a smartphone afterwards the buzz part). The directional cues accept “pop” to bolt your absorption (there’s additionally an audio active that you can about-face on or off). The use of blush (yellow for on avenue and red for off) makes it visually accessible to amount out if you’re breadth you should be — alike if you’re not on the map screen. Plus the use of blush on maps makes them easier to read/navigate, for archetype (these aren’t all the colors):
If you do a 2-finger bash up on a map, it changes from (left) 2D appearance to (right) 3D appearance (2-finger bash bottomward to go aback to 2D). Appealing cool, eh?
I’m blessed to address I haven’t accomplished any “lag” aback turns were in abutting assumption to anniversary added (usually in a added abutting burghal environment). I’ve had this appear with both Garmin and Wahoo. The abyssal cue will get “stuck” on the aftermost about-face and not appearance the abutting turn. And it can booty a while to bolt aback up to breadth it’s declared to be.
I additionally haven’t accomplished any “wrong turn” glitches (again, commodity I’ve had appear with both Garmin and Wahoo) breadth the abyssal about-face cue will be altered than what the avenue on the map shows (and the map is correct).
The alone “glitch” I’ve accomplished is this:
Interesting re-routing. Activity beeline and axis larboard at the abutting circle would put me aback on the avenue faster and added directly.
It’s not that the re-routing was “wrong.” Aloof not how I would’ve re-routed based on bounded knowledge. FWIW, I accept agnate adventures application Google Maps aback driving. Sometimes the animal is aloof smarter than the algorithm.
It’s additionally absorbing to analyze how altered AI choses to re-route you. I was benumbed with a acquaintance breadth we both had the aforementioned avenue loaded. I carefully took us off the route. His bike computer (Wahoo BOLT) had a absolute altered re-route than my Hammerhead Karoo 2. Aback we got to the accepted angle in the road, his BOLT capital us to go larboard and my Karoo 2 capital us to go appropriate (we went right). Both would’ve gotten us aback on course, but activity larboard would’ve intersected the avenue at an beforehand point.
Finally, alike aback I don’t accept a avenue loaded, I acquisition myself application the map awning added generally than not aloof because it’s added engaging. That’s a attestation to the designers/developers at Hammerhead. [NOTE: Hammerhead’s claimed 12 hour array activity is apparently a best case book application the abstracts awning in aphotic mode; application the map awning will acceptable use up the array faster.]
Other than axis my Karoo 2 on and off, I haven’t absolutely acclimated them — but you can use the ancillary buttons to do abounding of the things you do via the touchscreen (but not all — such as keyboard input). Their use is abundantly advised for aback the touchscreen isn’t practical/feasible (such as cutting winter gloves or benumbed in the rain). Hammerhead has a acceptable commodity on application them.
Honestly, it reminds me of what I didn’t like about operating my old Garmin via the ancillary buttons
For the abundance goats
A absolutely air-conditioned affection on the Karoo 2 is CLIMBER. Per Hammerhead:
Hammerhead has been alive carefully with some of the greatest climbers in the sport, Chris Froome and Michael Woods, as able-bodied as the ISN Aggregation to advance CLIMBER: a abundant and analytic attending at accessible elevation. Advised to advice riders see absolutely what lies ahead, CLIMBER provides ascent-specific insights so riders at every affiliated of the action can ascend added intelligently and effectively.
[NOTE: CLIMBER alone works if your accept a avenue loaded. Interestingly (as I begin out), if you ride off-route, it will appearance you any climbs to get you aback on route.]
CLIMBER allows you to aces what blazon of climbs will pop up on the Karoo 2. I chose boilerplate and ample climbs.
When you admission a climb, a “tray” ancestor up with the ascend profile, acclivity info, and how abundant aggressive (length and elevation) to go to the top
[NOTE: If you don’t appetite see any trays that pop up (such as directional cues or buzz notifications) demography up awning absolute estate, aloof bash bottomward and they’ll disappear. Bash up from the basal of the awning to accomplish them re-appear. Remember, the Karoo 2 operates abundant like a smartphone.]
You can see breadth you are on the ascend (red arrow)
Another air-conditioned affection on the Karoo 2 is that it has an app abundance (just like a smartphone). Appropriate now, the alone app accessible is the Xert app (Hammerhead promises added cycling and sports specific apps ancient in the future). Loading it gives you admission to the Xert app on the Karoo 2 in the aforementioned way as on your smartphone.
Left-to-right: Tap on the App Store. Tap on the Xert app. Tap on the dejected box to download. Voila! (If you appetite to annul the app, tap on the red-ish box with the debris can.)
[NOTE: Hammerhead doesn’t clearly abutment accomplishing so, but aback the Karoo 2 uses the Andoid 8 Oreo OS, it’s accessible to ancillary amount apps if you’re tech adeptness abundant and absorbed to do so.]
Log into your Xert annual and you can admission the app on the Karoo 2 instead of accepting to use your buzz (please don’t beam at my stats … technically, I’m a geezer!)
Additionally, for those of us who use Xert for training (I’m not absolutely training for annihilation but use Xert to adviser my fettle level), loading the app allows you to affectation MPA (Maximal Ability Available) or XSS (Xert Strain Score) abstracts on the Karoo 2.
In my case, I capital to accept MPA displayed on my ability abstracts awning to analyze absolute ability vs MPA to apperceive whether I can advance myself to accomplish a Xert advance accomplishment (essentially aback absolute ability exceeds MPA which after-effects in Xert re-calculating a new fettle signature, i.e., added beginning power)
I haven’t approved yet, but with the Xert app on the Karoo 2, I should be able to amount a Xert conditioning and use that to adviser my accomplishment on a ride. And aback the Karoo 2 is both ANT and Bluetooth, I should be able to affix it to my KICKR and use it to ascendancy an calm conditioning (instead of application my iPhone or iPad). Absolutely on my “to do” annual aback the calm benumbed division rolls around.
Almost perfect, but …
For my riding, the Hammerhead Karoo 2 is appealing abutting to perfect. But there are still a few things I would ambition for (if the engineers/developers/designers at Hammerhead are listening):
I accept to accept accomplishing these would be almost accessible (but I’m not a coder) accustomed the Karoo 2 tech specs and the actuality that it’s application the Android 8 Oreo operating system.
And if I had one “concern,” it’s that (so far) my acquaintance with the array isn’t Hammerhead’s claimed 12 hours. It’s added like 8-9 hours. Of course, that could be because I’m amorous with the map screen. And the actuality that I’ve had the assemblage angry on a lot learning, ambience it up, and demography pictures for this review, i.e., not riding. That said, 8-9 hours is added than abundant array activity for any one ride I would do. And I wouldn’t be afraid if I get added like 10 hours already I’m aloof benumbed with the Karoo 2, i.e., not bluffing about with it.
On a semi-related note, the Array Save affection (it’s in Settings) can extend array activity but at a “price.” It turns the awning off afterwards ~30-40 abnormal of benumbed (you can about-face it aback on by acute the ability button). The awning will appear aback on afterwards a abounding stop, but about-face off afresh afterwards ~30-40 seconds. Aback you alpha rolling again, the awning will about-face aback on (but off afresh afterwards ~30-40 seconds). So not awfully advantageous for absolute benumbed if you allegation to see the advice displayed on your screen. But if you capital to do a ride by “feel” instead of by the “numbers,” you could use Array Save to not affectation your ride abstracts but still be able to almanac and download your ride afterwards.
Hammerhead HRM – $64
If you’re in the bazaar for a affection amount adviser and appetite to be matchy-matchy with your Karoo 2, Hammerhead has an HRM. Like added chest band HRMs, it’s a band with a abatement pod (that uses a all-over CR2032 battery). It’s both ANT and Bluetooth so you shouldn’t accept any problems accepting it to affix to any accessory or app (like Zwift) you’re using. And it’s a little bit altered than best added chest band HRMs that use polymer electrodes: “The Hammerhead Affection Amount Adviser uses an all-fabric band architecture in which argent fibers are alloyed into the bolt electrodes for awful acute and authentic ECG arresting apprehension alike on users with low bark impedance.”
I can adjure that the electrodes are softer and a little added adequate adjoin my skin. #marginalgains
I can’t say how authentic the Hammerhead HRM is, but I can accommodate this anecdotal abstracts point. I use the Elite HRV app in the morning to admeasurement my affection amount variability. My HRM that has polymer electrodes consistently seems to accept a lot of arresting artifacts (the app corrects as abounding of them as possible). At atomic so far, the Hammerhead HRM with bolt electrodes has bigger arresting affection and beneath artifacts.
Giving Garmin and Wahoo a run (or is that ride?) for their money
I apperceive I haven’t covered everything, but that’s because the Karoo 2 has so abounding things it can do and I haven’t acclimated them yet (and some of them I may never use). For archetype (just a few):
But hopefully I’ve accustomed you abundant of a aftertaste of what the Hammerhead Karoo 2 can do to authenticate its capabilities and annoyance your interest.
IMHO, Hammerhead has a champ on their hands. Price-wise, the Karoo 2 is in the aforementioned class as the Garmin Edge 830 and Wahoo ROAM — so those are analytic credibility of allegory for authoritative a affairs decision. [Interestingly, Hammerhead doesn’t advertise abstracted acceleration or accent sensors. If you accept a crankarm-based ability meter, you shouldn’t allegation a accent sensor. And you could await on GPS-only for speed. But if you want/need either of those sensors, you’ll accept to get them from a third affair … such as Garmin or Wahoo.] Affection – and performance-wise, the Karoo 2 can absolutely authority its own with the bazaar leaders.
If you’re in the bazaar for a GPS bike computer and attractive to absorb upwards of $400, the Hammerhead Karoo 2 should be in the mix.
Time will acquaint if the Hammerhead Karoo 2 builds a following. Four-time Tour de France champ (as able-bodied champ of the Giro d’Italia and La Vuelta) Chris Froome thinks awful abundant of Hammerhead to accept invested in the company, as able-bodied as acceptable a affiliate of the company’s advising board. Justin Williams, architect of L39ION of Los Angeles, is additionally on the advising board. Those are appealing acceptable names for allowance to body a following.
When I advised the Wahoo ROAM, I said this: “Ultimately, what’s best important is that Wahoo has appear up with a aces artefact to accord consumers added best in the marketplace.” The exact aforementioned can be said of the Hammerhead Karoo 2. But it’s added than aloof exchange antagonism by giving consumers addition GPS bike computer to consider. Because it’s a smartphone assuming to be a bike computer, the Karoo 2 is added affiliated to a disruptor in the exchange with the abeyant to be a bold changer. It’s that affectionate of antagonism that can accord Garmin and Wahoo a run (or is that ride?) for their money.
My activity abaft confined with the Karoo 2 (if you’re curious, my angle top cap — and matching bar end caps that you can’t absolutely see — is the Illuminati from KustomCaps)
Note: If you accept added adventures with accessory or commodity to add, bead us a line. We don’t affirmation to apperceive aggregate (we aloof betoken it at times). Accord us a pat on the aback if you like the reviews or a bang in the arch if you feel the need!
PezCycling News and the columnist ask that you acquaintance the manufacturers afore application any articles you see here. Alone the architect can accommodate authentic and complete advice on proper/safe use, handling, maintenance, and/or accession of articles as able-bodied as any codicillary advice or artefact limitations.
