Garmin has announced a new cycling bundle for its Virb XE action camera that we told you about earlier in the year.
As well as the items that are included in the standard Virb XE package – sticky mounts, batteries and adapters – this cycling bundle includes a microSD card, small and large tube mounts, a vented helmet strap, and Garmin’s new cycling combo mount. That lot is priced at £349.99.
The cycling combo mount allows you to fit both a Garmin Edge and the Virb XE to your bars – the Edge attaches to the top, the camera attaches to the bottom.
Several compatible Garmin Edge units can also be used as a remote control for Virb XE, as long as the software is up to date.
Pair up the camera and an Edge via ANT+, and you can easily start and stop recording while maintaining a heads-up position, no matter if the camera is mounted on your handlebars, helmet or under the saddle.
