A new mount for a new era

We reimagined the cycling mounting system from first principles to create a new standard that is reliable, easy to use, elegant, and aerodynamic. It is also backwards compatible with standard Quarter Turn designs. The result is the patent pending Hammerhead Mounting System (patent pending).

Karoo to Quarter-Turn Adapter

The Karoo to Quarter-Turn Adapter allows you to put the Karoo 2 on any Garmin-compatible bracket, making Karoo 2 backwards compatible.

Aerodynamic profile

The low profile Hammerhead Mounting System (patent pending) is elegant and aerodynamic.

High contact area

The Hammerhead Mounting System (patent pending) presents a far greater contact area between the head unit and mount making it intrinsically stronger than a quarter turn design. Its teardrop shape looks elegant on your bike when your Karoo 2 isn’t mounted.

Simple actuation

Karoo 2 slides into the Karoo Mount with an affirmative click. This allows it to be closer to the stem and easier to mount in tight spaces. It disconnects through rotation that requires overcoming two points of friction to prevent unwanted dismounting.

Karoo Mounting System dimensions

Width: 55.8 mm
Height: 40.5 mm
Length: 116.5 mm

Fits standard handlebar sizes

Compatible with 31.8mm handlebars, the road standard.

    Great, except for inconsistent phone connection

    I've had a Karoo 1 since the early days. It's great to see the K2 reflect a refined device, without abandoning the core software. Unfortunately the phone connection (to a Huawei) is inconsistent. Works well on iPhone. Patiently waiting from some Trainerroad integration to take structured workouts outside with ease.

    Karoo 2

    An awesome piece of equipment! The screen clarity and quality is next level and operation is so intuitive. The back support is also fantastic with quick response and their team is constantly working to improve and update the software.

    Hammerhead Karoo 2

    The screen is clear and sharp. The map function was the deciding factor in the purchase and it certainly does the job. The unit has lots of functionality and it seems to do everything well. The updates have downloaded and installed seamlessly. The Karoo 2 was expensive but so far I'm impressed with it.

    My first cycle computer

    I am a returning rider at 66 years of age. I chose the Karoo 2 primarily because its screen was reputed to be the best and its functionality was good with regular updates to correct any problems and introduce new features. This is the sign of a company small enough to be responsive while at the same time big enough to make it happen effectively. Am I happy? Absolutely. The screen is as good as my iPhone and the information it gives answers almost all of my requirements. The only nice thing to have would be a proper time based heart rate graph, but everything else I need is right there, very customisable and clear to see. So far reliability has been perfect. Good stuff!
