New Quarter-20 K-EDGE Camera Mounts Released, But Garmin VIRB Camera Requirements Surprise
You’ll recall our coverage of the new K-EDGE Quarter-20 mounts. And you may be sold on K-EDGE after our factory tour and the increased video quality allowed by the GO BIG mounts in all their Made-In-Boise-USA, CNC machined 6061, lifetime guaranteed, gleaming glory.
Well, now the Quarter-20 mounts have hit the market and, not coincidentally, so has the new Garmin VIRB that we showed you at InterBike (and here). But if you want the K-EDGE “edge” for the VIRB you’d better read on…
The long and short of it – the Garmin VIRB’s proprietary mount is accompanied by only a GoPro-compatible-mount adapter. So, before you rush out to buy your K-EDGE, know your options:
- Buy K-EDGE’s GO BIG mount for GoPro (and now Garmin)
-or if you already have a “Quarter-20” mount
- Buy either K-EDGE’s adapter ($30) or Garmin’s adapter ($7) that will fit your Virb to any “Quarter-20” mount (i.e., the standard tripod 1/4”-20 threaded mount)
…and now you know.
