New ICO Rallye CAP! Engineered by Inmates

For the last few months, myself and inmate Luke have been designing ICO Racing's new product, the ICO Racing Rallye CAP™. Luke is a fantastic electrical engineer. It's been a real pleasure to work together. Thanks Luke!

The new Rallye CAP™ computer is an all-in-one, GPS-based instrument with odometer, speedometer, clock, and compass heading functions. It uses it's own GPS--no separate GPS or cables required. It's a rugged racing instrument designed for off-road abuse and based on ICO's battle-tested design.



The Rallye CAP™ is intended to meet the needs of two groups of riders:

For dual sport, adventure, and casual rally enthusiasts, the Rallye CAP™ is the perfect standalone instrument. It combines all the functions needed for dual sport rides, recreational rally routes, and rally training. Because it uses a GPS signal instead of the traditional wheel sensor, installation is simpler.

For experienced racers, the Rallye CAP™ is the ideal companion to the venerable Rallye VRL™. Racers typically want separate displays for the odo and CAP heading. They also appreciate the accuracy and simplicity of the VRL's wheel sensor-based primary odometer. The Rallye CAP™ is a race-ready compass repeater and an excellent backup odometer. Hard-core racers will want one of each on their bikes.

As some of you know, after 30+ years, Kerry and Suzanne have retired from ICO. Having personally used ICO products for many years, and with RMS being their largest dealer, it made sense for me to take over. My background in software engineering and product development, combined with RMS' experience and commitment to rally provides a great foundation for a future of product innovation, customer support and excellent service.

Enjoy this first taste of what's to come from ICO Racing! Our next-generation products are already in the pipeline!!!

Available today from Rally Management Services and other worldwide ICO Dealers.

Dave

Oooh....
Tell us more! GPS antenna integrated or external?
Will ASO have a hissy fit if one were to pitch at Dakar with this?
I see it has no internal batteries. What is the GPS acquisition time from power-on?

Small external GPS receiver. 41 x 36 x 15 mm.



We're working with the ASO to ensure approval.

Acquisition time is variable. Typically seconds if reacquiring in the same location. But there is no reason to turn the unit off during rest stops. It draws almost nothing.

MSRP is $425 USD. It's not just a CAP repeater--the Rallye CAP™ includes all the Rallye VRL™ functions, plus CAP. The package includes the thumbswitch, GPS, power cable, manual, stickers, and mounting bracket.

It will work with any other ICO compatible switch. You treat it just like a second ICO.

Follow the links for more detailed info.

Here are some mounting suggestions for the included GPS receiver.



Zip-ties are included, too
