ShredMate is a small computer that, when mounted to the lowers of your fork, registers speed and G-force. Using ShredMate's free, downloadable software, the sender pairs with your smart phone to provide a color display of the trail, with red, yellow and green segments indicating your speeds, while flags along the course indicate jumps and report time in the air. G-forces are also recorded along the route to show where you "dead sailored" and which corners you hit hardest. ShreadMate can even discern how rough or technical the trails are. Armed with Shred Mate, every ride can be a "Speed and Style" competition.
ShredMate was designed by Chris Irlam in the UK, who wanted a cycling computer that addressed the needs and riding styles of mountain bike riders, instead of the made-for-roadie-boy items that proliferate the market today. Compared with Strava, which can only tell you who won and how fast you went, ShredMate shows where you made up or lost time and, more importantly, it records exactly how brilliant you were on course, Presently, Iriam is launching ShredMate on Kick Starter at a discounted rate of £60
