Garmin’s Vector 2 power meter pedal system has received a slight update to make it a bit more durable and a little easier to install.

Gone are the washers, replaced with a hinged clamp that simply wraps around the pedal spindle and bolts into place. That makes the pedal pods easier to line up in the correct position.

The pods themselves are made of a new, tougher material that’s the same as their out front mounts. They say that resin is actually tougher than the original alloy mounts. It wasn’t a matter of toughness under impact, because you’re not really going to hit them on anything if they’re positioned properly…it was more about holding up to repeated removal and installation.

Seated and standing position, power phase (where in the stroke you’re most powerful) and platform center offset measurements are all improved, too, as long as you have the dual system.

Pricing is unchanged at $1,499 for the dual sided Vector 2, and $899 for the left-side only Vector 2S. Or you can just upgrade to the new pods for $149 or $99 respectively.

oops…in the first picture the pod is clearly installed downsideup. Otherwise nothing game changing…my pedals and pods run strong after about 10 months of abuse thus far. And if you don’t own a pm please stop looking at wheels and ceramic bearings and go get one!

I agree. And once you get one get trainer road or a peaks plan, and commit to it. Your more powerful legs will be way better than a pair of lightweights.

Easier to install, as ugly as ever.

Garmin have had to toughen the pods up against repeated removal and instillation because their product stops working so often it has to be sent back for repair and replacement.
