AUTOPILOT - pivoted mapholders (mapboards)
       for Mountain Bike Orienteering (MTBO) and Ski-Orienteering (Ski-O)

AUTOPILOT offers two basic models for MTBO and from 2020 also model Ski-Pilot for ski-orienteering:

PilotOne (launched in 2010) and RockyBoy (since 2002). Both MTBO models have following features:

1) lightweight
2) easy to install to almost all types of handlebars
3) solid and reliable construction, no trembling at the handlebars when riding your bike

Both MTBO models differ in the base: PilotOne sophisticated base is assembled from alloy laser cut components, can be equipped with full carbon board. RockyBoy base is bended from flat alloy bars. So it is the base which makes the design and price of the whole mapholder, because all sizes of offered boards are universal and can be used with any PilotOne base.



PilotOne - pivoted mapholder, easy and quick installation, no tools needed. Just "click and ride"!


PilotOne mapholder has been developed mainly, but not only, for top MTBO competitors. Beside MTBO competitors also design lovers and in general all cyclists enjoy navigation with it. PilotOne mapboards consist of the base and the rotating board - you can choose one of 4 base types - see point b) and c) below - and one of 8 board sizes.

Basic reasons why to purchase PilotOne mapholder:

a) extremely low weight (e.g.model PilotOne SH OS 26 weights 258 grams only)

b) 4 different base models - PilotOne ES (Extra Short, map height above the bars axis 85 mm), SH (Standard Height, map height 112 mm), PilotOne TB (TallBoy, map height 142 mm) and PilotOne AB (AngleBoy, map height 122 mm, 50 mm offset)

c) SH, TB and AB bases can be used either at 31,8 mm bars (marked OS, with reductions also at 25,4 mm bars)
or at 35 mm bars (with reductions also at 31,8 mm bars). Please specify in the order form what diameter you need.

     

d) easy and fast installation to almost all types of handlebars within approx. 10 seconds

e) the fact that no tools are needed for mapboard installation, just your fingers - „click and ride"

f) solid and reliable construction, no trembling at the handlebars when riding your bike

g) 100% functionality in severe conditions

h)  assembled PilotOne mapholder is a complex unit with no separate screws or any other tiny parts you can forget at home or loose during installation (in thick grass, of course).




Bases colors

All PilotOne base types are delivered normally in black, white or red colour. Anyhow you can also order different colours of the bases (or the base with 3 different colors -see photo of blue base with white and red clamps) as an extra - paid (4 Euro) service – please specify exact colour according to RAL colour chart in the „order specification“ box.
