Top customer reviews of Starlane Athon XS-K
- Starlane Athon XS-K NOTEThis product is an Athon XS and includes an external battery case, thermocouple kit, water sensor and a 19mm sleeve specifically for kart and scooter use. GPS RECEIVER AND ANTENNA BUILT IN THE INSTRUMENT? The Athon’s shock-proof ABS body accommodates the 10Hz GPS receiver and the relative antenna. This solution can make it really handy and simple, not requiring the installation of any additional detail on the vehicle. YOU CAN SAY GOOD-BYE TO ALL UNPRACTICAL INFRARED TRANSMITTERS ARRANGED ON THE PIT WALL The use of the GPS system intended to detect the lap time will make Athon completely autonomous, requiring no beacon transmitters, such as the infrared ones used by old-generation systems. Everything is getting much simpler, it is no longer necessary to arrange the transmitter and to recharge the battery, which is extremely annoying and unpractical, with the risk of forgetting it on the wall or having it stolen. MANAGEMENT OF THE FINISH LINE AND 3 INTERMEDIATES Just press one key to set up the coordinates of 4 finish lines (main finish line + 3 optional intermediates) during the first lap. Whenever you cross a finish line or an intermediate, Athon will indicate the relative drive-through time and store its value. You can therefore quickly evaluate your own performance even if you are driving along a part of the track far from the main straight stretch, which would be expensive and unpractical if you used any other type of chronometer. INDICATION OF THE BEST ACHIEVABLE LAP TIME By managing the intermediates, the Athon can calculate the time the rider can ideally achieve for each session. This is obtained by adding together the best sectoral times. This will help you understand the lap time you might have achieved if there had been no traffic at a specific point on the track or if you had done a lap with each sector matching your best time. DOUBLE FUNCTION “BEST LAP” LED INDICATOR The “BEST LAP” LED will turn on if you have improved your previous lap and it will blink if the lap you have just completed is the best of the session. This solution will supply the rider with all the information necessary for performance without any distraction. If you have set up intermediate finish lines, the LED is also enabled whenever you cross an intermediate. This means that this instrument is extremely useful to realise without any distraction whether you are improving compared to the same intermediate time of the previous lap or whether you have just accomplished the best intermediate time of the session. SUPPLIED WITH THE DIGIRACEMMX SOFTWARE The DigiRace-MMX software supplied with the Athon XS can file, analyse and print the data acquired and graphically represent the paths you have driven across with the relative acceleration and deceleration points for a lap-by-lap comparison. 999-LAP MEMORY WITH AUTOMATIC MANAGEMENT OF 99 TEST SESSIONS The Starlane Athon will automatically create a new session whenever you access the track. This means that you can analyse the times you have stored during the various sessions even at the end of the day without having to delete old sessions from memory. You can store the date and time of every session as well as the total time, the intermediates, the maximum speed, and the maximum engine revolutions for every single lap. ENGINE SPEED INDICATOR WITH SETTABLE LED BAR AND SHIFT LIGHT The Athon is not only a chronometer and tachometer, but also an engine speed indicator. You can set the power-on engine speed of the LED bar, which will gradually turn on up to the shift engine speed set by the user and signalled by the 3 high-power blue LED’s of the Shift Light. You can also display the speed. The engine speed can be measured by arranging the inductive cable in the proximity of an ignition coil or by connecting the signal wire to the original speed indicator. INPUT FOR EXHAUST OR OIL TEMPERATURE WITH SETTABLE ALARM The Athon XS comes with a specific input for the optional Thermocouple type K to acquire the exhaust temperature, needed for the correct carburation on 2 stroke engines, or oil temperature for 4 stroke engines. You can set a light alarm threshold for the thermocouple sensor. Starlane Athon GPS-RW ManualDigiRace LE 2.0.5DigiRace LE 2.0 Manual

Starlane Athon XS-K Review
The best reviews that we can read are those from actual customers. Whilst the expert or magazine reviews are great, they don’t tend to give you as much information as a whole load of customers that have tried and used the product for a much longer period and in different circumstances. For example if you were looking to buy a waterproof bike jacket, you want to read reviews from customers that have worn it for a year and can give you the honest opinion on how waterproof it is after a year. Likewise you want to know that products like Starlane Athon XS-K live up to the manufacturer and shop descriptions. We scored Starlane Athon XS-K 9.2 out of 10, and customers at SportsBikeShop scored it out of 5, thanks to the not yet rated customer reviews.
There are of course many factors that can affect the review score of a product, which can vary from the perception of the brand or product right through to the actual usability, quality and price. One of our best pieces of advice when you’re shopping for products in the Starlane Units category, or any Electronics products for that matter, is to consider reading plenty of the detailed customer reviews before you buy. Often the review score can help you to make a quick judgement as to how good a product is, but to really get to know if it’s right for you, you need to read lots of the reviews to find out what users are saying about it, good and bad.
Price was the other factor that we mentioned, and that has become increasingly important when we are buying products online, regardless if its motorbike kit or a toothbrush, we want to get a good deal. So be sure to shop around but it’s important that you buy from a retailer that you can trust. As a guide you should expect to be paying roughly £619.99 for Starlane Athon XS-K as that is the RRP price. SportsBikeShop sell it at £619.99 at the moment which is great. Anything massively under this should raise alarm bells, especially as SportsBikeShop offer a price match promise.
Starlane Athon XS-K Alternatives
We found that there are a total of 182 Starlane products, and 181 Starlane available from SportsBikeShop. So we understand that it’s difficult to make decisions when there’s just so much choice. The first thing to do is to write yourself a set of criteria that you want from the product. For example if it’s a helmet you may want a 5 star SHARP rating, if it’s a jacket you may want it to be waterproof and have a removable lining. Use these criteria to help you filter out the products that won’t meet your needs. At that point you can start comparing based on price and reviews.
Another critical part of discovering a new product before you buy it is video. So many brands and customers post video reviews of bike kit online, on websites like YouTube, these reviews are priceless as they show you a hands-on use of the product. We would encourage you to spend a bit of time watching some video reviews of Starlane Athon XS-K. It’s also worth exploring more photos of the product too, you can find these on Google.
