UP YOUR GAME
Ride stronger, smarter, connected with the Vector 3 pedal-based power meter. As you strive to beat your personal best on your next race or Gran Fondo, power is the most reliable way to gauge your performance on any given day, at any given time. Unlike other power meters, Vector 3 has the sensors housed right in the pedals, so it delivers reliable, accurate data on every training session.
TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL
With the Vector 3 dual-sensing system, you get the valuable ability to see right and left leg power independently. Vector 3 measures total power, cadence and left/right balance as well as advanced cycling dynamics, which help you tailor your training around your specific weaknesses and strengths to improve your form. It tracks 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 compatible Edge® cycling computers and Garmin Connect™ Mobile app.
EASY TO INSTALL, TRANSFER AND USE
With Vector 3, there are no complex drivetrain or wheel trade-offs and no external sensors to install. There are also no pods, so Vector 3 installs like any other pedal — and it’s easy to transfer from one bike to another without bike shop assistance. Plus, its sleek design and improved stack height provide greater cornering clearance and smarter ergonomics, and its precision stainless-steel spindle and composite pedal body have been engineered and tested to withstand years of use. It offers battery life up to 120 hours.
PART OF YOUR CONNECTED BIKE
Get the most from your training by seamlessly pairing your Vector 3 with compatible Edge cycling computers, ANT+ or Bluetooth-enabled fitness devices1 — including compatible Forerunner ® and fēnix ® devices — and Garmin Connect Mobile app. Plus, you can easily update software with any of these devices.
You can also integrate post-ride analysis, data sharing, mapping, route planning and more with Garmin Connect™, Strava and TrainingPeaks. And use ANT+ connectivity to get stronger by pairing Vector 3 with TrainerRoad. With the TrainerRoad app, you’ll get personally scaled indoor workouts based on power from Vector 3. The indoor training system also has training plans that tell you exactly what to do to achieve your unique fitness and race goals. It’s structured training in its most sophisticated and guided form.

- Evolution of vector for the better
I've used all versions of vectors and it's great to see the product evolve to incorporate all the features that as a user you wanted to see.
-The pods dissappearing makes installation and moving between bikes so much more convenient.
-Ability to turn on auto calibration after the 1st install
-Manage and update the pedals through garmin connect
-light and minamilist
Slight gripes (so far)
- Pedals are very stiff on the spindle. You don't notice when pedalling but if you unclip the pedal does not naturally return to a position dictated by gravity. This means when you go to clip in again you have to "find" the top of the pedal with your foot which is distracting especially if taking off in traffic. I'm hoping they free up with use.
- The door to the battery compartment may prove easy to crossthread over time. Especially when the pedals are mounted. Take the time to make sure you have the covers properly fitted before tightening.
-both pedals now have separate ant+ ID's. This is inscribed on the pedal. When registering the pedals garmin connect only recognised one of the Id's as a valid product. If registration fails try the other ID
