iBikeDash app helps perfect riding sessions

Velocomp has just released its latest product, the iBikeDash. The cycling computer requires an iPhone or iPod touch, as it's largely an app (free, App Store) but also includes a Phone Booth housing for the Apple device that keeps it out of the worst the environment has to offer. It's also shockproof and is bundled with an ANT+ speed sensor with optional sensors for cadence and heart rate.

The app includes 50 power-based and Heart Rate zone workouts and will measure speed, power, heart rate, wind speed, time, trip, elevation and calories to help users reach their fitness goals. It keeps users safe by helping riders be safe by helping them stay within the right zone.

There is also a power-based indoor trainer feature, a bike odometer and a calendar feature that keeps track of workouts, calories, miles and speed. There are also on-screen instructions and instructional videos included.

When calls come in, users can answer them and the ride data will continue to be collected in the background.

The iBike Dash computer is now shipping for the iPhone and iPod touch, priced at $200 for the basic version and $329 for the advanced model that has a cadence sensor, HR sensor, calorie measurement, battery and charger. Either version includes the Phone Booth holder, mount, wireless speed sensor, iBike app for iPhone or iPod touch, and iBike software for Mac OS X- and Windows-based computers.
