Garmin slash prices on Vector power meters

Price of dual-sided Vector power meter cut by £300

Garmin have slashed the prices on their pedal-based Vector power meters.

While SRM and Powertap once dominated the power meter market, competition has heated up over the past three years, with a host of new names entering the fray, including Garmin and Team Sky sponsor Stages.

Garmin have cut the price of their Vector 2 pedal-based power meter by £300

Garmin introduced the first pedal-based power meter, dubbed Vector, in 2013 and the system was updated in 2015 with the introduction of Vector 2 – now the price of the two-sided system, which measures both left and right leg power individually, has dropped significantly from £1,199.99 to £899.99. The Vector system also measures cadence, left/right balance and cycling dynamics, which shows how and where you produce power.

The price of Garmin’s single-sided system, Vector 2S, which measures left leg power to provide an estimate of total wattage, has also been cut from £749.99 to £549.99.  An upgrade kit to convert the Vector 2S into a dual-sided system is now £449.99, having dropped from £549.99.

Garmin Vector now also compatible with Shimano pedals

Meanwhile, Garmin have also introduced a pedal cartridge converter kit which means the Vector system can now be used with Shimano Ultegra PD-6800 pedals. Until now it’s only been compatible with LOOK Keo cleats.

Garmin have also introduced a converter kit which makes the Vector system compatible with Shimano pedals, whereas in the past it was limited to the original LOOK Keo-style pedal

The converter kit, which costs £99.99, allows Vector owners to remove the axles and cartridges from the original power pedals, put them inside the converter cartridges, and then place those inside the Ultegra PD-6800 pedals. Naturally that adds some expense to the overall system, but it means dedicated Shimano pedals users don’t have to switch to the LOOK Keo-style system which is standard with Vector.
