The Original - TOPLINE 2016 series from SIGMA SPORT
Bigger, slimmer, and with plenty of new features: 2016 sees the launch of newly designed TOPLINE bike computers from SIGMA SPORT. In line with the series’ new look, the computers have been equipped with additional functions and optimized accessories. From the compact BC 5.16 for the occasional cyclist to the BC 23.16 for ambitious athletes, the TOPLINE 2016 series offers a computer for everyone.
One of the highlights is instantly visible: a large display with minimal housing. The three-line display is far bigger than previous models and is vertically oriented for enhanced display options and improved legibility. The modern design goes perfectly with its intuitive operating concept. The buttons are purposely placed with ease of use in mind, and further support the new menu navigation.
The computers also come with several other innovations: the brackets follow the new design concept and are more narrow. New click-bracket spoke magnets can be attached and removed easily without tools. The new STS speed and cadence transmitters feature a pivoting base enabling them to be precisely aligned with the magnets for optimum wireless transmission on every fork or chain stay.
BC 5.16 // BC 7.16 // BC 9.16
The three recreational models in the TOPLINE 2016 series impress with their ease of use and single button operation. The wired BC 5.16 is a compact five-function device that is simple and intuitive to use. The basic cycling functions are clearly visualized in the form of icons.
The BC 7.16 and BC 9.16 are available in both wired and wireless ATS versions. They include upgraded features like a full text display and a programmable service interval timer. The seven functions of the BC 7.16 include average speed and total trip time. While the BC 9.16 further adds the comparison of the current and average speed, maximum speed, and calorie burn.
BC 14.16 // BC 16.16 // BC 23.16
The three sporty models in the TOPLINE 2016 series are available with the digitally-encoded Sigma Transmission System (STS). The BC 14.16 and BC 16.16 models are also available in a wired version. The new partial dot matrix display allows for the use of pictures, which can be seen in the setting menu, heart rate or altitude graphs, and in the customizable sleep screens.
With its comprehensive altitude measurement functions, an altitude profile, and the gradient as a percentage, the BC 14.16 is the perfect companion for all those who want to aim high. While the BC 16.16 is particularly aimed at the more aspiring cyclists and commuters. It incorporates an estimated time of arrival (ETA), indicating how much longer the ride will take and how much farther there is to go. And every kilometer cycled is converted into fuel saved. Cadence measurement can be optionally used on the wireless BC 14.16 and BC 16.16.
The BC 23.16 combines all the best features found in the TOPLINE 2016 range. It is a genuine data collector and can log any number of rides with a cumulative time of up to 500 hours. In addition to the numerous altitude functions, it calculates power (watts) and has a lap counter, with detailed lap analysis. It is only available as a wireless model and comes with the STS speed, cadence, and heart rate transmitters.
SIGMA LINK and NFC
NFC (Near Field Communication) makes it possible to directly connect the BC 14.16, BC 16.16, and BC 23.16 models with an android smartphone using the free SIGMA LINK app. The SIGMA LINK app can be used to configure all settings on the bike computer and read trip data and logs. To start the wireless data transfer, simply hold the android smartphone up to the bike computer. The data will automatically appear in the open SIGMA LINK app. For those looking for more detailed trip analysis, data can be uploaded to the DATA CENTER via the SIGMA CLOUD.
