Sigma ROX 11.1 Evo Bike Computer Review
Sigma ROX 11.1 Evo
The Sigma ROX 11.1 Evo has been designed to focus on training functionality, complemented by GPS navigation which works in conjunction with Komoot and its own Sigma Ride app.
The unit has a 1.77-inch display screen, which is small enough to sit unobtrusively on your handlebars, but the little machine still packs over 150 operations, including a crash notification feature. emergency.
There’s no touchscreen, so you can control and access modes via four buttons on each side.
Sigma ROX 11.1 Evo configuration and data
The computer can pair with compatible e-bike and e-speed sensors, as well as work on non-powered bikes, and you can set up displays manually or using the app. I would recommend the latter.
The format is very clean and allows you to prioritize the data important to you (eg speed, distance and time) on the screen.
You can then take it a step further by highlighting your most used stats in up to eight different colors and playing around with their on-screen size to make it even easier to keep an eye on your numbers on the fly .
I have generally reduced the information available on the screen at all times to “need to know” only because I find it more pleasant to read and use, and it is easy to switch between screens to access additional data .
If, like me, you mix your riding disciplines, you can also save up to 20 profiles. For example, I have this computer set up for road bikes, gravel bikes, and mountain bikes, so I can easily log stats no matter what bike I’m on that day.
I have only one complaint: the pop-ups that appear, for example when the signal is lost or the ride has stopped, obscure the bottom of the screen.
That aside, and in keeping with the clarity of the display, the Sigma Ride app has an exceptionally good layout that makes it easy to review riding stats. I would even go so far as to say that it is the best I have used.
Additionally, each ride generates a Sigma Performance Index (SPI) score. It is a combination of miles, meters climbed and average speed.
It gives you an at-a-glance comparison of different routes, or even the same route on different days, so you can quickly see where you’re gaining performance.
Cartography and navigation Sigma ROX 11.1 Evo
Mapping is done via routes downloaded from Komoot or OpenStreetMap (OSM) via the app. Syncing with Komoot is automatic and, in my experience during testing, instant.
The screen shows a breadcrumb with direction arrows, which I’m happy with on the road and most gravel routes, but off-road there were times when I had to refer to the in-app map.
If you want detailed mapping and navigation, this isn’t the computer to buy, but that’s not what it’s ultimately designed for.
Low-end Sigma ROX 11.1 Evo
While Sigma might not be as well known as Wahoo and Garmin when it comes to the best bike computers, the ROX 11.1 Evo is a great unit for riders who want to combine a user-friendly interface with ride and info data. coaching.
Although there are better options for mapping, for the intended use of this computer, the limited navigation functionality is not a deal breaker. This one negative point is easily outweighed by the small size, wide data range and ease of use of the ROX 11.1 Evo.
