1 PRO­GRES­SION

Since pro­duc­ing a be­spoke chain catcher for pro racer Kris­ten Arm­strong (hence the K) in 2008, Idaho, US-based K-Edge has come a long way, mak­ing beau­ti­ful­ly­crafted mounts for mul­ti­ple on-bike ac­ces­sories.

2 CON­STRUC­TION

The new Race mount is CNC-ma­chined from 6061-T6 alu­minium in three parts, which come in a se­lec­tion of an­odised colours. Ex­cess ma­te­rial has been re­moved to re­duce its weight by around 33 per cent to 33g, creat­ing an at­trac­tively sculpted mount.

3 FIT­TING

The slim clamp is hinged at the front for sim­ple in­stal­la­tion and fas­tened by a sin­gle 3mm hex bolt, hid­den at the rear. It’s de­signed for 31.8mm di­am­e­ter bars and safe for use on car­bon.

4 COM­PAT­I­BIL­ITY

Com­ing with a re­place­able Garmin quar­ter-turn insert fea­tur­ing K-Edge’s ‘De!ni­tive Click’ lock­ing sys­tem, it’ll also take Wa­hoo in­serts. This mount is suit­able for Garmin’s 20, 25, 500, 510, 520 and 820, but an XL Race is avail­able for Edge 1000 and new 1030 users.

5 SE­CU­RITY

Touted as o"er­ing Pro Tour race qual­ity, this K-Edge is a classy, if ex­pen­sive, !nish­ing touch for your best bike. On- and o"-road, de­vice re­ten­tion is rock solid, and we’ve not ex­pe­ri­enced any slip­page.
