Today, CANYON//SRAM Racing and CANYON//SRAM Generation are thrilled to announce the selection of Hammerhead, innovators of cycling technology and makers of the Karoo 2, as their cycling computer partner for the 2023 season.
The selection of Hammerhead’s Karoo 2 cycling computer will empower CANYON//SRAM Racing and CANYON//SRAM Generation riders with cutting-edge cycling data and navigation technologies to perform at the highest level. In addition to supporting the team with hardware, Hammerhead will also work closely with the team to improve upon existing features and develop new software technologies to benefit all riders.

CANYON//SRAM Racing and CANYON//SRAM Generation plan to leverage Hammerhead’s CLIMBER and Predictive Path technologies, which allow riders to see colour-coded upcoming elevation changes to inform riding and racing decisions.
