About the Garmin Vector 2S
The Garmin Vector 2 is available in a dual-sided model (Vector 2) or in a single-sided model (Vector 2S). The single-sided Vector 2S measures forces on the left pedal and uses this data to approximate total power. The Vector 2S allows you to get the performance and convenience of Garmin’s latest pedal-based power meter offering at an affordable price. In addition, you can upgrade your 2S system to a dual-sided system at any time by purchasing the Garmin Vector 2S Upgrade Pedal.
Garmin Vector 2s Options
The Garmin Vector is available in two options: the Vector 2 which is a dual-sided model or the Vector 2S which is a single-sided model.
In addition, you have the choice of standard or large pedal pods. 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.
The Garmin Vectors come with a set of LOOK Keo style cleats which must be used with the power meter. We note that all other pedal-based power meter offerings also use this same cleat style. If you prefer to use Shimano pedals, you can purchase a Vector Shimano Cartridge Kit for $129.99 that will allow the Vector 2 and 2S hardware to be swapped into a Shimano PD-6800 pedal body.
