A new K-edge mount for your Garmin GPS to place it out in front of your bar.
I must admit, as soon as I saw an ad for this product, I knew where it was coming from.
When you’re speeding downhill, hunched down low in an aerodynamic position, it’s impossible to see a Garmin mounted to the stem. At least not without lifting your head up and looking down, taking your eyes off the road. A dangerous thing to be doing downhill at 60kph+!
This mount places the device out in front of the stem so that it’s in your natural line of sight, allowing you to maintain your concentration where it should be – on the road – but still be able to safely glance at your chosen metrics.
K-edge and Garmin both produce a mount which does the same thing.
The K-Edge Garmin Mount is slightly more expensive than the Garmin Out-front Mount but looks more robust, and is more adjustable.
I’ve got the K-Edge GoPro Mount, and it’s rock solid.
Coincidentally, I’d been preparing this post and one of the guys in my club turned up on the Sunday ride with his new K-edge mount for his Garmin 500.
After stopping for a coffee and a bacon butty, we filmed this little clip so you can see what it’s all about.
