The Actual Garmin Vector Pedals Will Be Silver According To Garmin Representatives

When pros start using them it's a green light for me.

Garmin Vector power pedals launch in September and they will change the way the power game gets played in cycling and triathlon according to the Heart Rate Watch Company.

"Advanced SRM systems can cost upwards of $3,000 to $4,000 including the crank arms, so at $1699 the Garmin Vector power pedals will be very competitive from a price standpoint," says Squire.

Garmin is claiming plus/minus 1 1/2% accuracy with their Vector pedals which is close to the 1% margin proven by SRM. "The big difference is that Vector measures power at the source with strain gauges in the pedal which means it can produce left/right power balance," says Squire.

"Everybody has a dominant leg so knowing left/right power balance can be a real asset toward changing your pedal stroke to equalize power," says Squire.


Garmin Vector power pedals will work with Garmin Edge 510, Edge 810, Edge 500, Edge 800 bike computers and Garmin Forerunner 910XT and 310XT GPS watches.


"If Team Garmin start using the units, say for instance at the USA Pro Cycling Classic, then I believe this will tell consumers everything they need to know," says Squire. He adds, "A guy, like Ryder Hesjedal, who makes his living on the bike is not going to compromise his equipment, so the Team showing up on them will be a huge vote of confidence."


The Garmin Vector power pedals will be available in September and the, as yet to be confirmed, retail price is $1699 according to Squire. "Garmin will likely confirm the pricing and issue UPC codes and part numbers when they make an official announcement," says Squire.


"Interested parties can call us and give us their name, phone and email and get on a first come, first served list," says Squire. He adds, "My guess is that quantities may be more limited than demand so, if you really want a pair, the best thing you can do is call 866-586-7129 and get on that list now because the list is growing daily."

The Garmin Vector power pedals took a while to come to market due to re-development, testing and tweaking by Garmin's product development team. "We are glad Garmin took their time to get it all right because there was no sense in bringing a half-baked cake to the party," says Squire. He adds, "When pros start using them it's a green light for me."
