520 edge is the first GPS bike computer compatible with Strava segments6. Also includes a trial version to 1 month Premium Strava.
You need a motivation to complete the last few kilometres on the reels during your indoor workout? 520 edge offers this innovative function when associated with ANT + Protocol rollers. For example, if you want to train with an average power of 240 Watts, simply set the goal to Edge 520, start cycling and the rollers adjust automatically based on your goal. You can also follow a path created by another cyclist and download it from Garmin Connect, competing against virtually the athlete with which you want to compare, because the rollers adjust pedaling strength according to the slope and elevation profile of the downloaded location.
Associated with a power sensor, Edge 520 will offer you another series of functions, such as FTP detection threshold power and Watts/kg, and the dynamics of cycling ². A threshold test of power built into the tool will help you establish your reference data to be kept during your workout on reels or on the road. The heart rate monitor and 520 ³ will calculate the estimate of your VO2 max and the recovery time, which indicates how much time must pass before you can face another challenging effort.
520 compromise not edge when it comes to screen: 2.3-inch high-resolution color. We optimized the screen so you can get the most from taking into account the compact size of 520. Enjoy also the sharpness of the screen in all lighting conditions.
520 edge is compatible with ANT + sensors, including the Various bike radar™ and bikelights Varies™4, speed, Cadence, heart rate, remote controls and Edge ® and VIRB compatible scales. It also integrates with Shimano Di2 electronic shift5 to display the current running on the screen. 520 edge is also compatible with ANT + power meters, including Vectorseries.
If bound to a compatible phone and the app Garmin Connect ™ Mobile, Edge 520 offers real-time detection, alerts relating to your smartphone, social media sharing, weather and wireless uploads. The race has been completed, data can be automatically sent to Garmin Connect™, our online community where you can save, schedule, and share your bike rides.
