K-Edge’s first attempt at an "out front" mount for Garmin computers was nothing short of an exercise in "industrial sculpture". However, despite it’s beautifully laser etched, CNC machined design, a few niggles needed to be worked out.
The updated version of the mount retains all of the great qualities of the first iteration, however, gone is the old length adjustment, along with cleaner beveled edges and mounting bolts for the 31.8mm-diameter handlebar clamp that attach from the bottom.
However, the biggest improvement comes with the new molded plastic computer interface insert. Though some might miss the fully CNC-machined aluminum construction of the original, this new modular design is better as the computer fits nearly as securely as before but the motion is far smoother and more dampened this way. In addition, Garmin owners will no longer have to worry about sharp aluminum edges gradually wearing down the mounting tabs. At 50 bucks, the clamp isn’t exactly cheap. But, what is in the realm of high quality bike components these days ?
Professional grade mount for Garmin Edge® and Forerunner® GPS computers. Sleek design and placement of the computer enhances the use of the Garmin Edge® 200, 500, 510, 800, and 810 models. Mount can be configured for the Garmin Forerunner® 310XT and 910XT (requires the Garmin Quick Release Kit).
• STRONG – CNC machined aluminum platform engineered to securely hold your Garmin.• POSITIVE – Advanced Injection Molded Garmin Interface improves computer holding power and retains K-EDGE’s signature definitive “click” with four secure locking points.• PRO – Same ideal position as the original K-EDGE Garmin mount – low, tight, and aero. Improved design aesthetics with hidden bolts.• COMPATIBLE – ¼ Turn Garmin interface for Edge Computers, can be oriented for the Forerunner 310XT/910XT.
The K-EDGE Computer Mount positions the Garmin computer display below the top of the handlebars, centered and in-front of the stem. This gives the user an improved ergonomic view of the display from their position on the bike and a wind-cheating, sleek cockpit.
