Ride farther, faster, and smarter with the Cat Eye® V3 wireless cycling computer. The 2.4GHz digital data transmission virtually eliminates interference and cross-talk, while the large screen simultaneously displays speed, cadence, heart rate and time information. The sensor unit combines the speed and cadence sensors into one piece that adjusts to most bikes. The FlexTight™ bracket fits almost all stems and handlebars without tools.

The CatEye CC-TR300TW Triple Wireless Cadence and Heart Rate bicycle computer provides three windows displaying four readouts. Like all CatEye bicycle computers, this one is ultrasonically welded and water-resistant.
