Product Description

Never stop cycling with the ultimate solar powered GPS bike computer you can depend on when you need it most. Edge 1040 Solar is ready for any ride, from remote gravel trails to epic climbs.

The Power Glass solar charging lens extends battery life, giving you up to 100 hours in battery saver mode or up to 45 hours in demanding use cases. During daytime rides, it adds up to 42 minutes per hour in battery saver mode and up to 20 minutes per hour in demanding use cases.

While you ride, get stamina insights so you can keep an eye on how much you have left in the tank. Classify your strengths as a cyclist, focus on improvement, and prepare for the demands of a specific course. Recommended power targets help you manage your efforts throughout a course.

Get more insight about how your body is responding to training. Track VO2 Max, recovery time, training load, training load focus and more. How effective is your training? Automatically evaluate your recent exercise history and performance indicators to see if you’re training productively, peaking or overreaching.

Get your indoor and outdoor training plans from the Garmin Connect smart-device app, or sync seamlessly to your Edge device from other apps, including the TrainingPeaks® app. Plus, get prompts to complete a missed workout.

Prepare yourself for any environment. See how your body is holding up in different environments with heat and altitude acclimation. 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. You can even save your climbs for postride review on your device or in the Garmin Connect app.

Get the insight you need to stay fueled, mile after mile. Edge 1040 will notify you when it’s time to hydrate or eat. Take advantage of advanced cycling metrics designed to give insight into how your performance changes based on variable conditions such as position, bike setup, ride duration and more. 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.

Get better positional accuracy and coverage — even in the most challenging environments — with multi-system, multi-band GNSS technology. Ride like a local, whatever your bike type, with improved maps that highlight popular roads and trails plus searchable points of interest (POIs).

With routable worldwide MTB trail data and POIs from Trailforks, easily search for trails directly on your Edge. Or download the Trailforks app to transfer your planned routes from the Trailforks website. This mode automatically displays upcoming forks in the trail and gives you context by showing where you are within a trail network.

The Garmin Connect app is home to a thriving online community where people on the go can connect and compete — and even share their triumphs via social media. Pair Edge 1040 with your Tacx® indoor trainer so you can ride when you want and where you want.
