The computer for commuters
The BC 16.16 STS CAD provides crucial information for avid cyclists and commuters! The new ETA (estimated time of arrival) function continuously calculates how much time and distance remains until you reach your destination. Plus every kilometre/mile ridden is converted into fuel savings. The STS variant is also available with optional cadence transmitter. Using the NFC technology the Android smartphone can communicate with the computer, on which the free SIGMA LINK app has been installed beforehand.
- Extended bike functions
The extensive features of the BC 16.16 STS CAD are clearly and partly graphically shown on the large dot matrix display. In addition to the classic bike functions, the BC 16.16 STS CAD has the ETA display, fuel economy in the STS CAD variant via two cadence functions.
- Ideally timed
The BC 16.16 STS CAD has an exact timer, by which you can always view the time remaining to the destination. The ETA display (estimated time of arrival) of the BC 16.16 STS CAD calculates alternatively the required ride time, the remaining distance or the time of arrival for a preset distance. Therefore you will always know exactly whether you are on time.
- NFC & SIGMA LINK
The BC 16.16 STS CAD has a built-in NFC chip. Using NFC (near field communication)¹, the data of a trip can be read directly on the smartphone. Also settings on the BC 16.16 STS CAD can be made by means of this radio transmission. For this purpose, the user can load the free SIGMA LINK app on the smartphone beforehand. Using the app, you can upload your workout data on the SIGMA DATA CENTER or other training platforms (for example, Strava, Training Peaks).
- Fuel saving
The fuel saving feature shows you how many litres of fuel you had consumed on the same route with your own car. The average consumption of your own vehicle can be configured in the settings.
- Workout statistics for 12 months
The BC 16.16 STS CAD also shows, in addition to the total values, statistics for the last twelve months. Using this "Workout diary" you can compare your activities on a monthly basis.
- Power Save
After five minutes of inactivity, your device goes into sleep mode and after five more minutes, into the power save mode. This reduces power consumption even further and ensures a longer battery life. When the integrated accelerometer detects a movement, the bike computer wakes up again and is ready for immediate use.
- Temperature display
All models from the BC 14.16/STS/CAD to the BC 23.16 have a temperature indicator. This shows the current temperature of your environment at all times.
- Speed comparison
A comparison of the current and average speed. While cycling, a permanent comparison is made of your current and average speeds. The difference is indicated by an up or down arrow. When moving at approximately the average speed, no arrow is displayed.
- Adjustable wheel sizes
When using two bikes, two wheel sizes can be set that are automatically (automatic only for STS) detected. To use this function, the speed transmitter must be switched to that on the second bike and the right wheel circumference for ‘bike 2’ must be set on the BC 16.16 STS CAD.
- Integrated storage chip
Thanks to an integrated memory chip in the computer head unit, all the total values and settings are permanently stored in the device. After changing the battery, you therefore only need to reset the time.
- Information on the power status
All devices from BC 14.16 upward come with a battery status indicator. The power status of the battery in the computer head unit or STS transmitter is checked at regular intervals. If the battery is low, an early warning is displayed on the computer head unit.
- Maximum display, minimum size
The new sleek, vertically orientated TOPLINE 2016 computers will look great on your stem or handlebar. We’ve maximized the display size and slimmed down the computer housing to show the largest, easiest to read numbers, letters, and images possible.

- Digitally encoded three-channel wireless transmission
The tried-and-tested SIGMA TRANSMISSION SYSTEM (STS) is the digitally encoded transmission system for all transmitter data from the speed transmitter, the cadence transmitter, and even the heart rate transmitters for the high-quality basic devices and top models. The transmitters collate the data they have received and send this to the receiver integrated into the computer as a data package. The transmitters also regularly send stored test data for data comparison purposes.
The digital encoding of the SIGMA TRANSMISSION SYSTEM prevents transmitter data from being corrupted by external interferences such as power sources or other transmitters. The interference of Sigma products, e.g. LED lights, can also be prevented.
- STS transmitter
The STS transmitter has a movable mounting foot, which ensures an optimal mounting of the transmitter in every situation. Transmitter and magnet can therefore always be installed in parallel. This results in a more stable radio transmission.
Or as we like to call it, a smart backlight. Press the Alti button and the Menu button at the same time to activate the backlight. Once activated, each time you press a button, the backlight will illuminate. When the computer goes into sleep mode, the backlight automatically deactivates.
The BC 16.16 is waterproof according to the international standard IPX 8. This means there is "protection against permanent immersion". Nothing stands in the way during the next ride in the rain.
Two new spoke magnets (standard and power) are equipped with a one-piece click-mount clamp. Installation is easier than ever. Magnets can be installed and removed without tools.
- Cadence magnet
The new cadence magnet can be attached directly on the inside of the pedal without further aids. Since it is very thin, the risk of friction with the transmitter is avoided even in tight spaces. In order to function well with larger distances from the sensor or with non-magnetic pedal axles, two plastic clip holders for the magnet are also included in the delivery.
