Koichi Tsuyama, president of CatEye said: “The Padrone Smart + is the first BLE computer compatible with the state-of-the-art Di2 electronic shifting system from Shimano. We are proud to offer this upgrade to customers, allowing them to achieve their goals and most importantly, spend more time riding!”
