At road.cc every product is thoroughly tested for as long as it takes to get a proper insight into how well it works. Our reviewers are experienced cyclists that we trust to be objective. While we strive to ensure that opinions expressed are backed up by facts, reviews are by their nature an informed opinion, not a definitive verdict. We don't intentionally try to break anything (except locks) but we do try to look for weak points in any design. The overall score is not just an average of the other scores: it reflects both a product's function and value – with value determined by how a product compares with items of similar spec, quality, and price.What the road.cc scores mean
Good scores are more common than bad, because fortunately good products are more common than bad.
Velomann's V1.10 computer is a slimmed down version of the V1.16 we tested a while back, and it's none the worse for it. What the 10-function unit lacks in terms of bells and whistles it makes up for in ease of use and value, and the functions you get are more than enough for most riders.
The unit is simple enough to install: four zip ties take care of the head unit and sensor, and the three-piece magnet, though a bit fiddly, stays put and copes well with bladed spokes. The range of the sensor is good both in terms of the distance to the computer and also to the magnet: it doesn't need to be super-close to trigger.
Setting up the computer is simple too, so simple that I managed to set all the information on the V1.10 without once referring to the instructions by stabbing at the two buttons a bit. Once it's set up you get current speed, average speed, speed comparison, maximum speed, trip time, trip distance, two odometers (plus a total), 12/24h clock and double pre-set wheel diameters for running on two bikes. Unless you're a cycling statto, that'll probably be all you need.
The readout is nice and clear and the wireless signal didn't suffer any ill effects from being close to LED lights or power lines when on test. The signal wasn't quite as robust when the sensor was attached to the rear wheel, so it's not the best bet if you spend a lot of time on the turbo.
Good quality computer with all the functions you need for everyday riding
