Garmin drops prices on Vector power meters

Pedal-based systems now cheaper than ever before

Garmin has dropped the prices of its Vector 2 and Vector 2S pedal-based power meters. 

Garmin Vector 2 is a pedal-based power measuring system. You fit the pedals, along with their accompanying pods, to your cranks and your power data is sent to a head unit, such as a Garmin Edge bike computer, as you ride. 

The Vector 2, which measures power from both legs, now retails at £899.99 rather than £1,199.99. It gives your cadence, total power, left/right balance and shows you exactly where you’re generating power through the pedal stroke.

The Vector 2S is a single-sided system; it measures forces on the left pedal to approximate total power, and also gives your cadence. This model is now priced at £549.99 rather than £749.99. 

Both systems send data to compatible ANT+ enabled devices. You can upload the data to Garmin Connect and other websites/apps for post-ride analysis.

Vector 2 and Vector 2S are available in both a standard option (for cranks 12-15 mm thick, up to 44 mm wide) and a large option (forcranks 15-18 mm thick, up to 44 mm wide).

As we told you earlier in the week, you can now get a Vector Cartridge Kit for Shimano Ultegra PD-6800 pedals for £99.99. This allows you to swap the power-measuring parts from normal Vector 2  – which are Look Kéo compatible – into a Shimano Ultegra pedal body.
