Sound The Sirens, It's An Exclusive
It's not often I get to talk about exclusive deals, but it's certainly exciting when I do. I'm really happy to say that York Cycleworks are the exclusive dealers for Garmin Vector 3 Power Meters in York.
What's all the fuss about?
When Garmin moved into the world of power meters a few years ago, they shook things up a bit. Before it was predominantly crank or hub based power meters that were on the market, both with their own pro's and cons. The main con being that they where usually difficult to quickly swap between bikes. Over the last few years Garmin have refined the technology and added to it. The latest release, The Garmin Vector 3 takes the technology, and your training, to the next level.
Tell Me More... like Power... Oh Tell Me More!
If you're looking to take your training to the next level or if you love gadgets and stats, then a power meter is for you as power is the most reliable way to gauge your performance on any given day, at any given time. What makes the Vector 3 different is that the sensors are housed in the pedals, so to deliver reliable, accurate data every time you use them.
The Vector 3 has two options. A single or a dual side versions. The single side gives you your power of one leg, which assumes you're pushing as hard with both legs, as well as readings on your cadence. It's the double sided version where these really come into their own! With the Vector 3 duel-sensing system ,you can see right and left leg power independently. They'll measure your total power, cadence and left/right balance as well as advanced dynamics, which can help tailor your training around specific weaknesses and strengths to help you improve your form. It will also track your seating/standing position to determine when and how long you were in each. So, you can gauge position effectiveness, power phase to show how you're currently producing power in a pedal stroke and platform centre offset to show where power is applied on the pedal so you can ensure proper cleat position. Each metric can be viewed on a compatible Gamin Edge or Garmin Connect Mobile app.
The Vector 3 is also incredibly simple to install, transfer and use. There's no omplex drivetrain or wheel trade offs and no external sensors to install. With the Vector 3, there's also no pods to install, like with the previous versions of Garmin Vectors. They're also easy to transfer from bike to bike without the need for us to do it for you. Add in a sleek design and improved stack height to give greater cornering clearance and smarter ergonomics, and it's precision stainless-steel spindle and composite pedal body have been engineered and tested to withstand years of use. The Vectors also offer up to 120 hours of battery life
You can get the most from your training by pairing your Vector 3 with a compatible Edge cycling computers, ANT+ or Bluetooth- enabled fitness devices. These also include any compatible Forerunner and Fenix devices as well as the Garmin Connect Mobile app. Also, you can update software with any of these devices.
Post ride analysis can also done with data sharing, mapping, route plannine and more with Garmin Connect, Strava and TrainingPeaks. The ANT+ connectivity can be used to get stronger on TrainerRoad by pairing your Vector Pedals.
