!!! For Australian & New Zealand bikers: AUTOPILOT products on stock at WILDFIRE SPORTS, Brisbane!!!    


Dear visitors, existing and potential customers, welcome at web pages dedicated to AUTOPILOT mapholders (mapboards). AUTOPILOT is a progressive and innovative mapholder producer using very modern technologies (laser cutting, laser welding). AUTOPILOT offers two basic models:

PilotOne (launched in 2010) and RockyBoy (since 2002). Both 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 mapboard models differ in the base: PilotOne sophisticated base is assembled from alloy laser cut components, 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 4 sizes of offered boards are universal and can be used either with any PilotOne or RockyBoy 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 who need maps will enjoy it. PilotOne mapboards consist of the base and the rotating board - you can choose one of 6 base types - see point b) and c) below - and one of 4 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) 3 different base models - PilotOne SH (Standard Height, map height above the bars axis 112 mm), PilotOne TB (TallBoy, map height 142 mm) and PilotOne AB (AngleBoy, map height 122 mm, 50 mm excentric)
c) all base types can be used at 31,8 mm bars (marked OS) and with diameter reduction set at 25,4 mm bars as well (marked UNI)
  
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)  futuristic look 

i)  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).

Technical requirements (see attached picture):

 

  • maximal stem head width 50 mm. Wider stem head doesn´t allow to place PilotOne mapholder base
  • place for PilotOne movable clamps inserting - some old Shimano LX dual hydraulic levers don´t allow to insert PilotOne movable clamps
