Who cares that the Edge 530 cycling computer puts trail maps and ratings at your fingertips and offers insights to help you improve? You do. Ride like you know every twist in the trail. Plus, find routes the locals hit most.
Huck it, then prove it. Track jump count, distance and even hang time. MTB Dynamics tracks the details of every ride with mountain biking metrics plus specialised grit and flow measurements that rate trail difficulty and how smoothly you descend, giving you a score to beat next time.
See how much suffering is coming with remaining ascent and grade on your route with Forksight Mode. When using the Trailforks app, this mode automatically displays upcoming forks in the trail and gives you context by showing where you are within a trail network.
Left or right? Edge knows the way. Get reliable turn-by-turn directions with Garmin Cycle Map. Ride with preloaded maps that provide information about elevation data and points of interest and allow you to search for addresses. With turn-by-turn navigation, you’ll never get lost with turn-by-turn directions and alerts that notify you of upcoming turns.
Edge 530 is even smart enough to guide you back to the route, or back to the start, if you deviate from it or decide to head home early. Using the billions of kilometres of ride data that cyclists have uploaded, Edge 530 can find the best route, choosing from roads (and trails) most travelled.
Spend more time riding and less time waiting around with route calculation speeds that are twice as fast as previous models.
Track the epic details of every ride with new mountain biking metrics such as jump count, jump distance and hang time. Grit rates the difficulty of a ride using GPS, elevation and other data. Flow measures how smoothly you descend a trail, so you have a score to beat next time. Automatically see the remaining ascent and grade when you’re climbing while following a route or course. This helps you gauge your effort and see how much you have left to suffer.
Get more insight about how your body is responding to training. Track VO2 max, recovery time, training load, training load focus and more.
Finally, a coach that doesn’t yell. Sync structured workouts right to your Edge. How effective is your training? Automatically evaluate your recent exercise history and performance indicators to see if you’re training productively, peaking or overreaching.
Prepare yourself for any environment. See how your body is holding up in different environments with heat and altitude acclimation.

The longer the ride, the better. Get up to 20 hours of riding before you need to recharge. Edge 530 will get up to 20 hours of battery life while using GPS and up to 40 hours when used with the optional Garmin Charge power pack or in battery saver mode.
Pair the Edge 530 with our Varia rearview radar and lights so you can easily see and be seen.
The PIN-protected bike alarm will notify you on your smartphone if your bike is moved while you’re inside getting water or making a pit stop.
