K-Edge Computer Mount

These new computer mounts for Garmin (MSRP $35-$65) are designed for the Edge, Forerunner, and Touring cycling computers. This next generation mount is stronger, easier to use, and more versatile than previous iterations. They are also available as a combo mount that includes the GoPro interface for camera or light attachment.

The CNC machined aluminum mount includes an injection molded co-polymer insert to lock the Garmin in place at four secure locking points with ¼ turn strength and security. In the event of a crash, the insert is designed to break before the tabs on the back of the Garmin fail. The mount is also designed to keep the Garmin low, tight and aero on the handlebars. It features a new hinged handlebar clamp for ease of installation and removal, as well as both 31.8mm and 35.0mm diameter handlebar capability.

The new mount is CNC machined from billet aluminum and engineered to hold the camera in place better than plastic mounts.

All three versions feature a new hinged handlebar clamp for ease of installation and removal, as well as both 31.8mm and 35.0mm diameter handlebar capability.
