Chain Reaction Cycles UK (United Kingdom) - The most exciting cycling computer to drop this year from the legends of GPS, premium technology, Garmin. The Edge 1030 Cycling Computer is packed full of a rich tapestry of new and improved tech features that are going to push your cycling experience and increase your cycling enjoyment.
When you’re training for a big race, or just trying to up your cycling performance in general it’s important to monitor your training and recovery to help you keep track and know where improvements can be made. With the brand new Training Status feature the Edge 1030 automatically evaluates your recent exercise history and provides performance indicators. This lets you know if your current training is productive, when you’re peaking or overreaching. You can also track your exercise volume over the last 7 days so that you can compare the information to help you create an optimal range for your overall fitness.
One of the key features of the Edge 1030 is that it allows you to specifically improve your race day performance. The device will show you how changes in weight, power and drag can affect your goal race time. The computer will guide you through a perfect power plan to get you ready for the race. You can gain even more features with the option of downloaded, on to the device, the Best Bike Race Sync App which will help you create unique plans ready for your actual race day.
With the TrainingPeaks IQ App preloaded onto your Edge 1030 you can receive planned workouts automatically to your device by simply turning it on. The App will guide you through different workouts in real time with altering intensity targets and interval durations. You can then sync this information, via the App, on your smartphone or tablet to receive unique feedback on how your workout went.
Strava Live Segments:
Every cyclist knows the importance of Strava Live Segments and the Edge 1030 comes in-built with the feature. This gives you a further huge selection of features and options to really improve and build on your performance. Your Edge 1030 will receive alerts when the segments start, finish, and allows you to compete against your own PR.
The Garmin Edge 1030 comes with a new, better than ever, in-line mounting system. The mount securely attaches the 1030 in line with your handlebars, instead of above, to give you a clearer view of your computer while not distracting you from the action.
To keep you focused on your route with its new and improved connective options. Firstly you can send messages between your 1030 and other 1030 users.
