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
The viscous liquid in the bubble tube dampens vibration so the bubble moves to indicate pitch but 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 for fitting to old-school 26.0 mm 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?)
