SpeedAngle APEX - the No Limits European Limited Edition.
Data logging has been used in motorsport in may forms for years. Very serious looking people, stood round laptops staring at line after line of data as if their lives depended on it, are a common sight on TV every race weekend. Whilst they are very clever individuals using the most complex high tech loggers on offer, what they are trying to achieve is very simple...make the bike and the rider better! The SpeedAngle APEX lets you do the same, by offering you the relevant data required, in a simple to read and understand format.

The all-new and improved Speedangle ‘Apex’ is the natural evolution of the original ‘SpeedAngle’ with an all-new design, rider displays and technology within following feedback from racers and riders worldwide.
The -167 dBm ultra-high sensitivity 72 channel GPS module and built-in antenna ensure GPS traces are more accurate than ever before, even under bad weather and tall buildings. Equipt with 5 NEW rider display modes, the rider can fine tune what information they want to know when out on track and thanks to the new display, its never been so clear.
Equipped with aero sensing technology and 10 Hz GPS module, APEX is a one-of-a-kind data logger developed for motorcycle enthusiasts. It is different from other data loggers in the market in that it captures how YOU perform instead of how the bike performs. It measures and records the 3D motion of your riding, including:
Lean angles up to R/L 69 degrees,
Longitudinal G's up to +/- 1.5G,
Speeds up to 255 MPH (410 KMH),
10 Hz GPS traces (logging 10x per second),
Lap times down to 1/1000 sec.
This essential data help riders analyse their riding style easily, and provide an efficient way to improve the rider skill.
Why Lean Angle Measurement Is Essential
“I know G’s and Speed’s are useful, but why lean angle measurement?”, you might ask. Leaning is what differentiates two-wheel vehicles from four-wheel ones. Unlike cars, Motorcycles lean in order to make a turn. Knowing your speeds and G’s without knowing your lean angles is like missing a piece of the puzzle; something might be missing when you are analyzing your riding skill.
“True, but I’ll know how much I am leaning when I graze my knee puck.”, you might say. The point of lean angle measurement is not how far you can lean, but to know exactly how and where you are leaning in a corner. This, plus the acceleration/deceleration G measurement and GPS trace, can clearly mark how hard and how long you are braking before entering a turn, what your cornering speed is, if the throttle is rolled on again before or after exiting the apex, just to name a few. Only when a motorcyclist knows how he/she is handling a turn can he/she master the art of cornering, and thus the skill of motorcycle riding.
