This wiki has been updated 3 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Cycling is a great way to stay fit, and in order to get the most out of your workout, it's important to measure your statistics. Some measurements, like distance, are relatively easy to keep track of, but if you want to know your rotations per minute, you'll need a cadence sensor. These handy devices can be attached to any bicycle and will help you train to increase your pedaling speed. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best cadence sensor on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 09, 2019:

Since Bluetooth and ANT+ seem to be the two most popular forms of wireless connection, I found some of each type of device. Many options on the list have dual connectivity, meaning they work with both. Made sure to include a variety of price points to cater to the needs of both professional cyclists and people for whom riding is more of a hobby.
