The top-end Garmin Vector 2, which measure both left- and right-side power, are now priced at £899 (US and Australian pricing to be confirmed). This is a hefty reduction of around £300 from the £1,199 that the Vector 2 previously cost you.

The more affordable Vector 2S, which measures power on the left pedal only, is now priced at £549. This is also a large reduction from the previous price of £749.

There are also price cuts for the Vector 2S Upgrade Pedal, which enables Vector 2S owners to upgrade to dual-sided power measurement. The Vector 2S Upgrade Pedal now costs £449, down from £549.

All prices are effective immediately, as of 8 April 2016.
