The Garmin Edge 520 is a powerful GPS enable cycle computer packed with performance enhancing features. With the 520 you can analyse every part of your ride performance to spot strengths and weaknesses in your fitness and skills.
Contained are some impressive new features that current Edge models don’t feature. Integration with Strava live allows you to receive segments sent directly from Strava to your display. Compete for a King of the Mountain, beat a personal best or thrash your mates.
Pair the Garmin Edge 520 with a power meter and heart rate monitor and the computer will report your VO2 max and recovery time data. Pair with Garmin Vector pedals and you can see the comparative power through each pedal.
One of the best new features is the ability to pair the Garmin Edge 520 with an ANT+ turbo trainer. On those long winter months you can train with your computer synched up to the turbo to control the resistance or select specific workouts based on your training needs. The turbo will automatically make the adjustments as you ride.
These features along with a long 15 hour battery life, optimised high res colour display and large range of data points make the Garmin Edge 520 the all purpose cycle computer.

Mounts (standard and extended out-front)
The Garmin 520 sits strongly and attractively on its mount at the head of my bike. It gives you all the info you need, and I'd stress the point you need a power meter and heart rate monitor/cadence sensor to make it really worth using as a training tool. One negative is how tricky it is to set up strava live segments, because you need to do some real research into how to set it up - there are no clear instructions that come with the Unit. That said, once you have it working, its very motivational and definitely gets you out on the bike a lot more!

This is the 1st Garmin i have owned, been on a few rides and has reset once on a 3 hour ride but apart from that its very useful to see all the data and even a map. Like the strava segments as it helps push you that little bit more if you're a few seconds off a PB
