How steep is it?
Use the Sky Mounti for accurate grade
In 1987, we
found the Sky Mounti Inclinometer at a trade show in Germany. We thought it was
a clever design, well-made, and that it did a single job well – it measures
grade. Dependable as gravity.
Much like a
carpenter’s level, a bubble floats within a curved bubble tube so the bubble
comes to rest at the highest point in the tube. The leading edge of the bubble
indicates uphill grade percentage; the trailing edge measures descending
liquid in the bubble tube dampens vibration so the bubble moves to indicate pitch
and doesn’t bounce around like it otherwise would.
Dependable as gravity
- no batteries
Measures Steepness of
Ascents and Descents
Fits 31.8 mm diameter
bars. Supplied with rubber sleeves to allow fitting to old-school handlebars.
Scale: -20 - +20%
Made in Germany
Note: We caution you against reading
the inclinometer when you're descending a 20% grade. (Seriously, we have
to tell you this?)
