The Hammerhead Karoo 2 has been improved upon from the previous model, with its compact design with a large enough 3.2inch (82mm) scratch-resistant screen for viewing lots of data fields as well as its map in impressive detail. The device is packed with great features such as a 'live Strava segment' overlay, it's super responsive and has excellent navigational capabilities for both planned routes and out-in-the-wild spontaneous ones.
Performance-wise, it does a brilliant job for both multi-day bikepacking trips and all-out interval sessions thanks to its easy-to-read maps and range of performance metrics that you can choose to display. There's also a slot for installing a SIM card behind the circular cover round the back. More so, the battery lasts in general between 10-11 hours, but riding without a route you can easily see this battery life increase to 13 hours.
All in all, the Hammerhead Karoo 2 is brilliant at most things a modern cycling computer should do. It’s reliable, has a great size screen with a solid display and has an impressive battery life that can easily see you through a day of adventuring. Therefore, if you want a cycling computer that can do all of this on top of usual performance metrics, it should be at the top of your wishlist.
