The Garmin Vector 2S Powermeter Pedal System allows you to easily measure power at your pedals, where the force is applied.
MEASURE WHERE IT MATTERS
Power is an objective measure of your cycling performance on any given day, independent of environmental conditions or how you feel. Using power meters like the Vector 2 and Vector 2S allows you to gauge your training intensity with unprecedented precision. Working seamlessly with a compatible Garmin device, it helps you train smarter.
The Vector system not only changes how power is measured, but also changes how cyclists get power — making it extremely easy to buy and install. It’s available in a single-sensing model (Vector S) or dual-sensing model (Vector). With additional crank arm clearance — in thickness and width —Vector fits almost any bike. The standard pedal pods fit crank arms 12-15 mm in thickness and up to 44 mm in width. The large pedal pods fit crank arms 15-18 mm in thickness and up to to 44 mm in width.
PEDAL-BASED CYCLING POWER METER
The concept behind Vector is powerfully simple — measure your power output at the pedal, where force is applied. Vector measures the slight deflection of the pedal spindle through your entire pedal stroke, measuring the force vectors and using this data to calculate power.
The single-sensing Vector 2S measures forces on the left pedal only to approximate total power.
Single-sensing Pedal-based Power Meter
Affordable power meter with option to upgrade to dual-sensing system
Measures power output at the pedal, where force is applied
Reports cadence and total power (watts)
Installs in minutes and quickly transfers between bikes
Pedal pods include an LED light to display important setup and maintenance information
In the past, power meters were difficult to install and often involved making mechanical tradeoffs for your bike. But with Vector 2S, you can walk into your local bike shop, purchase a Vector 2S power meter and install it yourself in minutes. There’s no need for a mechanic, or no downtime while your bike is in the shop. There are no complex drivetrain or wheel tradeoffs, or no external sensors to install. Plus unlike its predecessor, there are no tricky washers to worry about. That means you can even swap it between bikes quickly if you desire.
With additional crank arm clearance — in thickness and width — Vector 2S fits almost any bike. The standard pedal pods fit crank arms 12 to 15 mm thick and 44 mm wide. The large pedal pods fit crank arms 15 to 18 mm thick and up to 44 mm wide.
