First Look: K-Edge Pro Garmin Mount

by Brian Mullin on July 6, 2013

The
brand new two-piece CNC machined 6061 T6 aluminum mount is meant for
the Garmin Edge 200, 500, 510, 800 and 810 GPS bike computers. The mount
offers a stable and secure attachment, and enhances viewing with a more
forward placement from the handlebars. The mount fits 31.8 diameter 
handlebars, weighs 32 grams, has a lifetime guarantee, comes in Black,
Gunmetal and Red, and retails for $49.99.

The previous incarnation of their Garmin mount was all aluminum (reviewed here),
and this new one uses an injection-molded interface instead of aluminum
one, which tended to tear the plastic wings on the Edge computers.

First Impressions
The solidly built Pro mount was easy to install, though the bolts
connect from the bottom, so you initially start with the mount upside
down, rotate it into position and tighten it down to specs. The Garmin
computer clicks in with a heavy and satisfying snap, so you know that
the computer is solidly attached. The well made all aluminum mount
delivers rock solid stability and keeps a tight hold of the computer for
low vibration viewing, without  any worries about accidental
disconnection during a crash or ride. The forward mounting location
gives a functional and ergonomic viewing of your Garmin Edge bike
computer.

Company Fodder
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.
