Olympic gold medalist Kristin Armstrong has introduced KX3 components, launching with a forged carbon GPS computer mount. Aimed at the high end, it uses chopped carbon fiber forged into shape, with corrosion-proof titanium hardware to top it off.
The mounts are 100% safe for mounting on carbon handlebars (naturally), and are compatible with Garmin, Wahoo and Bryton cycling computers. Here’s the story…
Kristin Armstrong and husband Joe Savola were former owners of K-Edge, which they sold in 2016. Now, they’re re-entering the market with the KX3 X1 mount, which is made via Bulk Molding Compound. Basically, compression molding, which is similar to “forging” except not with metal. The mount is then coated with a UV protective film.
The X1 is available in 31.8mm ID clamp size only. Weight is 34g, price is $64.95. Compatible models include Garmin (Edge 130, 500, 510, 520, 530, 820, 830) and Wahoo (ELEMNT BOLT, ELEMNT MINI). So, smaller models, since the mount’s arm is on the short side…for now. Joe told us they’re also working on a longer version that’ll have a GoPro-style mount on the bottom called the X2, and an X3 stem mount version…and TT and top cap mount versions, too!
