Equipped with aero sensing technology and 10 Hz GPS module, GMOS 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 ride, 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 GPS positions 10 times per second), and
  • lap times down to 1/1000 sec.

These essential data help riders analyze their riding style easily, and provide an efficient way to improve the riding 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.

Hands-free Lap Timer

Besides collecting and recording essential motion data, GMOS is a hands-free lap timer. It features:

  • Auto Track Search,
  • Auto Start/Finish Setup – no beacons needed,
  • Auto Timer Start,
  • Auto Timer Stop,
  • Auto Data Logging
  • Auto Lap Report Display

In most cases, once you are on a Track, all you need is power GMOS on, and then it will take care of itself. This allows you to focus on the more important thing – perform to the best – instead of being distracted by the tool that is supposed to help you.
