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.

You can't move for out-front Garmin mounts these days: everyone's making one. If you have a Bryton computer, with its similar-but-not-compatible twist mount you might feel a bit left out. But Raceware Direct are making one, so that's one option at least.

Raceware Direct print components in nylon using a 3D process, so tooling costs are a lot lower than traditional manufacturing which allows them to tap the smaller Bryton market. The flip side is that the process is much more expensive per unit than moulding, hence the salty £30 price tag; Garmin mounts can be had for around a tenner now.

Anyway, it's your standard fare: a loop to go round the bars, an arm out front and a mount for the computer. This one's for the Rider 20, 21, 35 or 40. The 50 needs a different mount though, which is also available.

The nylon bar loop is a snug fit and doesn't budge once tightened, and the twist mount works perfectly too. If you don't like garish yellow then a) you're going to have to put up with it for another year at least because it's still a la mode; and b) you can have other colours if you want.

Verdict

Well made out-front mount for your Bryton. A bit expensive though.
