3DMS compared to other laptimers

Many of you asked us: “Why is the 3DMS better than Starlane or Alfano… laptimers?”
And the list is huge! That’s why we wrote this article.

3DMS versus its competitors

We compared here the 3DMS with 3 other GPS laptimers of the same category (based on their use and price).

Much more expensive and hard to use data acquisitions (as 2D) are not compared with the 3DMS because they aim only professional riders.

Thanks to its 6 axis sensor and powerful algorithm, 3DMS measured lean angle and throttle/brake force are accurate and reliable. Lean angle is the angle of the motorcycle itself and not the average between the motorcycle and the rider position.
