The compact, portable design makes this unit easy to take right to the track

Kestrel 5100 Meter at the trackThe Kestrel 5100 is just as accurate, reliable and user-friendly as the original Kestrel 4250. The Kestrel 5100 measures moisture content in grains, air density, relative air density, humidity and other critical factors. Count on it for the information you need to make perfect ET predictions and performance-maximizing tuning and jetting decisions. The compact, portable design makes this unit easy to take right to the track – exactly where you need to get the most accurate and race-relevant measurements. Pair it with the optional Kestrel Vane Mount for hands-free measurements logged over the course of the day.
