Garmin has drastically reduced the UK pricing of its Vector power meter pedals, cutting a whopping £300 off the price of the most expensive model.

The Garmin Vector 2 dual-sided power meter pedals were previously priced at £1,199, but have now been reduced to the relatively inexpensive price of £899.99, while the single-sided Garmin Vector 2S power meter have also been given a new price of £549.99, down from £749.99. The upgrade pack to convert your Vector 2S pedals into a dual-sided power meter now costs £449.99 compared to £549.99 previously.
This pricing restructure comes a day after Garmin announced that it was introducing a new pedal cartridge adaptor that allows you to remove the innards of your Garmin Vector pedals, and place them into the axle of a Shimano pedal, meaning that you don’t need to make the transition to Look pedals and cleats if you’re a dedicated Shimano fan.
The Garmin Vectors were some of the first pedal-based power meters when they were first released back in 2013, but have been subject to increased competition recently, with other systems such as the PowerTap P1 pedals providing similar functions, but at a cheaper price. However, this massive cut in the price of Garmin Vectors will now mean that they are £100 less expensive than their PowerTap rivals.
