Power data in a more affordable package.
The Garmin Vector 2S Power Meter Pedals bring some new features to the table and provide powerful data tracking in an affordable, easy to install, and bike interchangeable format. With the Vector 2S, Garmin throws away the old washers found on the Vector S pedal pods and opted for a new, more user-friendly design that clamps over the pedal spindle. The Vector 2S pods also feature a new flashing LED system to provide information on pairing status and let you know when the battery is getting low.
The Vector 2S still measures watts with a pod attached to the left pedal spindle, capturing power information as it transfers from the pedal into the crank arm. The sensor monitors tiny changes in the pedal spindle curve as force is applied to the pedal, and the data is transferred wirelessly via ANT+ technology to the head unit. You can see your power during rides and also download the data for analysis once you get home. The Vector 2S also has the option to upgrade and convert to a dual-sensing system with the Garmin Vector 2S Upgrade Pedal for additional data features such as left/right balance and pedal efficiency dynamics.
The pedal itself has a lightweight composite body with a stainless steel wear plate to increase durability and provide a wide platform, reducing the chances of pressure points distracting from your ride. The adjustable tension binding also lets you customize the force required to twist the cleat out of the pedal and is compatible with Garmin Vector and Look Keo three-bolt cleats.
The whole system runs on a standard 2032 coin cell battery located in the pedal pod for a claimed 175 hours of ride time per battery. When time's up, the batteries are easily replaceable with a quick trip to the grocery store and a twist of the battery cap.
The Garmin Vector 2S Power Meter Pedals are available with standard pedal pods to fit crank arms 12mm to 15mm thick and up to 44mm wide or large pedal pods to fit crank arms 15mm to 18mm thick and up to 44mm wide. A set of Garmin Vector cleats with six degrees of float are also included. Please note that Garmin's suggested rider weight limit for this pedal system is 200 lbs.

Very Happy I got these!

I bought these based on Drew Anderson's review here.
I have been missing out on the benefits of a power meter. Takes a bit to get used to using it (This is my first power meter), but it has really improved in what I can accomplish with my training and racing. This power meter is great when used for more than a curiosity of what watts are. It has allowed me to pace myself much easier in double centuries and has improved my interval, tempo, and endurance training rides. (as opposed to using just my HR monitor)
Highly recommend getting a book on how to use a power meter, it will open a whole new world quality training.
I bought this pedal power meter as I knew I would soon be buying another bicycle and wanted something easy to switch between bikes, and it is very easy to do just that.
I have over 4k miles on these and have had no issues at all with them. This was the best purchase I made this year and would recommend this to anyone on the fence about getting a power meter.
Power for the rest of us

I was worried I might be taking a step down buying the little brother to the new Garmin Vector 2, but the Vector 2s has been everything I could've asked for.
I can't brag enough about how quickly the Vector 2s has changed my riding. In the first few rides, I was able to make huge improvements in my riding behavior, getting my cadence much higher so I can last longer on my rides, and not overusing my energy during my rides so I can put the power down when I need to.
Being able to train to a specific power has made a huge difference in my training, and in the winter, now I can ride my trainer and have some data to look at compared to the dark ages when all I had was a sense of my own effort.
I must warn, to get this to work right, you must install it correctly (duh!). It doesn't take very long at all, but you obviously have to do it right to get the power meter to actually function properly.
I was worried I might hit the pod on the ground while riding, but installed at the correct angle to the pedal, it is virtually impossible for this to happen, especially with curbs being on the right hand side here in the USA (the power meter on the Vector 2s mounts to the left side pedal)
I can't stress enough how important a power is to improving your riding. If you want to be the best rider you can be, and use your time most effectively, you need a power meter. The Vector 2s is the cheapest power meter available on the market, and I honestly don't know why you would really spend more on a power meter. The Vector 2s does everything I could ask for.
Do these pedals sync with the Magellan 505? Magellan says ANT+ is compatible, but wondering if anyone has tried doing it.
For Ultegra 6800 Crankset, which size should I get?
Hey Jonathan! The 12-15mm option will be perfect for your crank. Let me know if you have any other questions at 801.204.4556 or email@example.com.
Do you still need to use a cadence sensor if you use these pedals? I want to install this on my new bike but was wondering if I could skip buying another cadence sensor.
The pedals have a built in cadence sensor/accelerometer. A lot of power meters need cadence built into the power meter to determine watts.
Hi, are these pedals compatible with a Garmin Edge 500?
