Data Driven Training
Monitor your speed and cadence as you ride with these easy-to-install wireless sensors. With no magnets or other exposed parts to line up, these sensors are easy to install, maintain, and move between bikes.
The Speed Sensor 2 attaches to the hub of either wheel and self-calibrates with your Edge cycling computer or compatible Garmin device to give you accurate speed and distance at all times even without a head unit.
The Cadence Sensor 2 fastens to any size crank arm and measures pedal strokes per minute so you can get the most out of your training. Send live speed, distance and cadence data to compatible training apps or displays by using ANT+ connectivity and BLUETOOTH Low Energy technology.
With both of these sensors on your bike, you can work to improve your personal best or see where you stand against the pros.

These sensors are much easier to set up and use than the former speed and cadence sensor that used to have to be attached to the chain stay and then adjusted so that it could read the magnets on your rear wheel and crankarm. The only difficulty with installing, if you have clumsy fingers like me, is to stretch the band around the crankarm or the wheel hub and get it into the slots on the sensor. But once it's on, it's on. Seems to be very accurate. Now use these on all three of my bikes.
Needed to add sensors to new bike,already have these on another bike and they work great,price was right so I picked up another set. both sets are working just fine with my old GARMIN FORERUNNER XT tri watch. Very easy to set up.
I use this these sensors on both my full suspension mountain bike and my road bike. I also connect them to both my Garmin edge 820 and my Garmin Vivoactive Watch. Set up was really easy in both cases, and I haven't had an issue since.
I have a Garmin Bike Speed Sensor 2 and Cadence Sensor 2 Bundle on every bike I own. Road, gravel, cross, mtn, and tandem. In years past I have tried some of the low cost imports but they never lasted. In the last 6 years I have not had any issues with Garmins speed and cadence sensors and Bike Tires Direct has always had the best price!
I've had this on my road bike (with Edge 1030) for 1 year and recently it started reporting speed in a "bouncing around" fashion: +/- 3-4 mph every second or so. Battery was changed and I used a voltmeter to ensure the replacement battery was good (previous battery still measured as good but replaced anyway). I switched between data recording "smart" and "every second" but the problem did not resolve. I turn it off when riding outside since the GPS is available but for inside riding this is bothersome. I also tried "auto" and "manual" for wheel size but the erratic reporting was still there regardless. The average speed at ride's end appears accurate so there's that. Just a nuisance.
Bound easily to a Lezyne Super Pro GPS unit. In fact it works better than the Lezyne sensor's. Except that the GPS doesn't detect the battery charge. But it was spotty with the Lezyne sensors anyway. Even when new. I've only used the Garmin sensors a couple of times. But so far I'm very satisfied that they even work with the Lezyne GPS. The Lezyne sensors are really cheaply made and suck the battery down really fast. Even when not being used. The quality of the Garmin sensors is far superior. And the price isn't much more than the Lezyne sensors. So far I'm very satisfied with the Garmin sensors. I may have to buy another set.
These guys are easy to install (much better than the previous generation) and work well. Connecting to my Edge 530 was easy and I don't notice any dropouts. The rubber bands seem sturdy and battery life is extremely good. The cadence sensor is essential if you're a data nerd. The speed sensor may not be so important, because the Edge also tracks speed. However, some online reviews suggest speed is measured more accurately by the sensor. You also need a speed sensor if you use an indoor trainer, or if you ride in an area where GPS frequently drops out due to buildings, trees, etc. I have a couple of speed sensors (one for each wheelset) -- they're a pretty cheap add-on if purchased in the bundle with the cadence sensor.
I was using the magnetic version of the cadence sensor. Had to deal with the magnet placement as well as plastic straps to hold the sensor in place. The speed and cadence sensor bundle avoids the magnets and was very easy to install. Also, easy to link to my bike computer Apps.
I bought this Garmin sensor bundle while on sale at biketiresdirect.com. I say that they were on sale because it was the lowest price that I have found anywhere for OEM components. So far these work flawlessly for my beater bike that is primarily rode during foul/winter weather. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase and could not be happier. By comparison I would often lose signal with cheaper aftermarket systems that would make concentrating on the ride a little more difficult. To a point you get what you pay for.
The old cadence sensor required a magnet affixed to the crank and a transmitting unit located on the lower frame arm. Both required tight tolerances and easily could get out of alignment due to bumps or whatever. The new unit attaches to the left crank arm and can't get out of alignment. The speed sensor worked off the real wheel magnet and cadence/speed sensor. Again, the unit required tight tolerances and easily could be dislodged and require adjustment. The new speed sensor is great as it attaches to either hub and requires no further adjustment. Both units pair well with my Garmin Edge 500.
