"The cycling GPS market has never been in better health. Where once dominated by a single brand, the last few years have seen others take up the challenge head-on. This increase in competition has helped drive the market forward, introducing new, innovative technology that leaves consumers truly spoilt for choice. Hammerhead is a new entrant into the market, and with a focused and nimble team, have launched their flagship head unit, the Karoo. Karoo is an android based cycling GPS computer that is not just driving the market forward, but is actively leading it..."

"The Hammerhead Karoo GPS is a sleek, beautifully designed and packaged cycling computer that eschews the smaller-is-better philosophy currently dominating the GPS landscape. While Garmin has ruled the roost for the better part of a decade now it’s only recently that the likes of Wahoo - and Polar, Bryton and Lezyne to a lesser extent - have begun to put up any form of resistance in the cycling computer segment. In fact, we’re seeing more and more cyclists jumping ship and moving away from the perennial favourite..."

"Det har længe været Garmin der har siddet tungt på markedet for cykelcomputere, men nye spillere er ankommet, for at få del i os motionister der ønsker en god cykelcomputer. Et af de firmaer der bejler til cykelcomputer markedet er Hammerhead. De har lanceret en topmoderne cykelcomputer, som på mange måder er konkurrenterne overlegen og på visse punkter endnu mangler lidt udvikling. Vi har set nærmere på Karoo en cykelcomputer fra det amerikanske firma Hammerhead..."

"Choisir un compteur GPS et se l’approprier n’est pas toujours facile : Configurer, envoyer d’un parcours, récupérer des données et surtout qu’il réponde à ses attentes. Puis l’offre aujourd’hui est tellement importante sur le marché GPS, qu’on n’est pas contre une prise en main afin de valider définitivement son choix. Si certains magasins offrent cette opportunité d’aller tester un compteur en condition réelle, son est confronté à un nombre limité de marques ou de modèles..."

"Every now and then you run into a product that you never knew existed and wonder why you’d never heard of it before. That’s what happened with me and the Hammerhead Karoo bike computer. A Facebook ad immediately drew me in because of the amazing looking color screen. I contacted Hammerhead, and they sent me a Karoo GPS computer for review. I’ve been using the Hammerhead Karoo over the eight weeks or so..."
Forbes – 04/08/2019
Hammerhead, maker of the Karoo cycling computer, has secured $4.1 million private equity funding. In part, it will use the investment to add staff – the company currently employs 35 and is now advertising for managers and tech staff for its New York and Pennsylvania offices. Co-founded by South-Africa-born Piet Morgan, a childhood friend and riding buddy of four-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome, Hammerhead started in 2013 by creating a hammer-shaped...
Triathlete – 04/06/2019
Though a relatively new name to the GPS cycling computer game, Hammerhead has taken an entirely different approach with a unit that goes as big and as customizable as possible. Boasting a gigantic screen (paired with a gigantic back), the Karoo’s laser-crisp full-color screen has resolution that would put some iPhones to shame. The excellent touchscreen helps navigate the very intuitive Android OS-based system and offers a crazy amount of data display, collection, and customization...
Bicycling – 04/04/2019
The Karoo began life as a crowdfunded project, and early indications are it was worth the wait. What it does better than almost any other computer on the market is data presentation and visualization. The bright, clear, color screen uses buttons to quickly navigate menus, and the Karoo is packed with internal features with a heavy emphasis on maps, navigation, and route creation. What it doesn’t have much of yet is third-party app integrations like...
5K Runner – 03/18/2019
There were some nice additions to the Hammerhead Karoo’s features last week. As usual, these were a combination of adding some features that their competitors already have and then sneaking in a little innovation or two here and there. For those of you who do lots of hills, the upcoming course elevation graph gives a visual sense of the hills to come for the next two miles. You can zoom in or out from the default 2 miles ahead view as you ride and, for the data field to work, you must be following...
