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.
