Garmin Vector 2S Review

For cyclist or triathlete, training using Heart Rate Monitor or HRM seems outdated with the availability of "more affordable" power meter. Power meter can cost a fortune especially when you factor in the pricing of the bike and gears you already invested in this (already very expensive) sports. Why aren't HRM enough? Like many others, I've toyed with the idea, and wished I could afford one - or rather, for the technology to be more affordable so it's possible to get one, or two (or depending on how many bikes you may have ;-))

Vector 2S
Athletes comes in all different level of fitness and capabilities. Even ourselves, our heart rate differs everyday depending on our rest, performance and even the weather. So, to be training at "10 beat per minute" more than yesterday may very well meant different level of effort if you had a tough day or an easy day (at work or at training). However, having a consistent benchmark such as power, which is a function of force multiply by distance over time. It sort of provide a number where you can use to benchmark your training against. The level to generate 100Watt (W) when you are fresh or tired is the "same" to the power meter. But to get your heart to work to generate that 100W when you are tired, may meant busting your heart rate at Lactate Threshold than when you are fresh. 
An analogy I could use would be to compare Heart Rate to a vehicle RPM while Power is the capacity. A car going uphill may require higher RPM (HR) to generate the same climbing power and definitely lesser RPM (HR) when you are moving on a flat ground. Now imagine if you can train at a given Power irrespective of your HR... you will become a more efficient cyclist or triathlete!

Garmin Vector 2S
Lucky for me, the good people in AECO Technologies, which is the authorized distributor of all Garmin products in Malaysia has been kind to provide myself and Chan a unit of their latest power meter to be used for our training. Chan has provided a write up on why in the team's blog. We both have been using the Vector2S and has compared a few notes on training. Among others, we soon found out that I can churn out more power compared to him. Question was - am I a stronger cyclist because I can fire up higher power? Now keep this question in mind while I continue today's review of the 2S.
First up is the Garmin Vector 2S itself. It is a pedal-mounted power meter. Other variations available in the market (for power meter of other brands) are crank mounted, bottom bracket mounted, hub mounted and crank-spider mounted. My exposure and knowledge was nil until the Garmin Vector 2S. This review will be specific for Garmin Vector 2S; until I manage to (afford???) another different type to compare. 
The Garmin Vector 2S (I will call it 2S from now onward) is an upgrade from the original Vector where the older pod appears to be a ring (O) that goes through the bike spindle versus the newer Vector that has the pod coming as a clamp (()). The plus side? Easier installation. Meaning, You can remove the pedal and re-install it on another bike faster and easier. Ideally, I would think for such investment, you may unlikely remove the pedal and the pod. That is unless you decided to do so (or use a different bike setup like a road bike vs a TT bike) for race reasons. 
The closer look of the Pod clamp
Vector 2S is single sided pod aka on the left pedal while the full fledged Vector 2 is both pedal - which gives you better left-right accuracy where power generation is concerned. On the "left" only power meter such as 2S, the total power are multiplied to provide the reading. While some of you may now argue the accuracy of a one-sided unit - I believe manufacturer like Garmin would had factored in this when building the algorithm to compensate or to correct the readings. For that, Garmin units has function of "Smoothness" in percentage (%) which could mean how smooth your pedaling motions are, and these translate to efficiency. 
What's in the box?
What comes in the box (top line) : Left Vector 2S pedal and sensing pod, right non-sensing pod, cleat, hardware to mount cleat, USB ANT+ stick and manuals
The USB ANT+ intrigued me...I later found out it was for the unit to speak to the Garmin Edge1000.
All laid out
Closer look to the plastic pouches and cleat that are "Look Keo" compatible and made by Exustar. Closer inspection of the bundled items below
Cleats in Red. In pouches, from top left clockwise : spacer ring for pod installation, hex screws and hex key, hardware to install the cleat and USB ANT+.
The Look Keo compatible cleat can't be used on Shimano pedals - meaning, you would or may need to have an extra cleat shoe if your other bike or bikes runs on Shimano SPDs. For me, my Giro Tri Mele is used/converted for Garmin Vector 2S. The cleat supplied is the 6 degree float - which is really comfortable.
Below is how the Pod and the left pedal looked like when installed on the crank arm. I try to show it from different angle so you have a good idea how it will eventually look when installed.


You may had noticed the Pod has an additional "arm" that locks into the spindle. This is the how the unit collect and transmit the data from spindle to pod and finally to your Garmin device.
The Extra arm with the contact points
The left pedal spindle where the arms with connector will contact
Comparatively, the right pedal looked like any pedal spindle.
Right pedal spindle
Very nice GARMIN and VECTOR imprinted on both the pedals
Proudly made by Exustar. You can adjust the tension here.
Installation
My fear of installation revolves around the pod position and at which position the crank arm will be. The installation of the pedal is simple and direct. Be mindful not to over-tighten or under-tighten the pedals, as it may impact the accuracy of the power reading. Garmin recommend 34-40Nm. If you are not sure, the best guesstimate is just to screw in with hand until the surface of the nut and crank arm meet and give it a snug turn to sits it in. I have a torque wrench...but it maxed out at 20Nm... haha.
Pod facing down with crank arm at leading edge or 9 o'clock position
For this, the simplest approach available from Garmin is to place the pod downwards as the crank arm is at the forward position - looking at the left crank, it's at 9 o'clock position with the pod pointing down. To make it a bit easier to visualise, i am showing how it will look when the crank arm is at 3 o'clock position - the pod will face upwards. I try to make it as perpendicular (90 degrees) to the crank arm as possible.
My extra challenge is that I have the existing cadence and speed sensor, which I have to adjust and install onto the system. Good to note that the 2S collect Cadence data as well, but not speed. And I need the Speed data (because who don't?). :D The 2S takes precedence with the Cadence reading while the existing Cadence/Speed sensor provides me (stationary) speed on the trainer as the wheels turn. Win-win. Power-Cadence-Speed sorted!
First Use
The Manual is easy to understand. Once the whole system is installed, tighten and checked, I paired the unit to the Fenix3 (and also the 920xt), input the correct crank arm length and spin it between 70-90rpm to set the installation angle. This only need to be done once. Once it is set correctly, you will received a signal on your Garmin device that it is successful - and you are good to go!
2S In Action
Total time from start to getting the unit working took me about 15minutes including reading the manual from page to page. Thanks to Jun Shen as well, that provided a few pointers and assuring what I did was correct. Thank you sir!
Jun Shen's Garmin Vector 2S installation instruction!
Using the Power Data
It has been about 5 weeks since I've embarked on the Power journey. There are a few important numbers that the Power meter provide that sort of tells me the quality of my workout. When I first started using it, I pedaled the way I did and returned a rather bad reading, power wise. How can someone that claim to be training consistently brings home only 180w average power? 
Power To Weight Ratio - Watt per Kilogram weight or W/kg
It was a wake up call when I only manage a 180w average. I realised I wasn't training the way I should be. To put things into perspective, (remember the question above?) Power itself is nothing if you got no other constant to measure against. 
This critical data many failed to include is the cyclist/triathlete body weight. Two person may churn out (example) 100w and if both of them are 50kg and 100kg will normalise their athletic/cycling potential. If you are 50kg, you are returning a 2W/kg power and if you are 100kg, it's a 1W/kg power. Having this number helps to normalise two different level of effort and potential - and this at a competitive level will tells you just how ahead or behind you are against your target power output.
Professional cyclists may have anything 6W/kg onwards - as their numbers are often very closely guarded. A professional triathlete (Ironman distance) are known to hold above 3.5w/kg over 180km distance and can wrap the distance up in less than 4:30 - mind you, that is them being prudent with their energy as they have to run a 42km after. 
If I have the W/kg of a pro-cyclist, I would be turning in 420W average power. In reality, I have something half of the pros - and that is nothing to be shy of.
Functional Threshold Power or FTP
This is the running Lactate Threshold (LT) equivalent on both pace and heart rate. Obtaining the FTP allows you to shape your training as a percentage of effort. Power meter will be able (and smart enough) to calculate these for you, as long as you put in the appropriate effort to get the representative data. Typically, it is measured in the average power you can generate in space of 20minutes at your best effort (you do want representative data no?).
Intensity Factor or IF
Likely the most useful data after your FTP as it determine to what workout you want to do, or did. It is a ratio of normalised power (NP, which usually differ by 1-2W to your average power) to your threshold power. You can think of it as percentage of effort compared to your maximum. Obviously, when you get stronger and clock higher FTP, your training effort too will change to match the same IF - for future or immediate improvement. Rule of thumb, anything between 0.85 and 0.95 is a good base for Tempo ride or coupled with both aerobic and anaerobic spin simulation to a less than 2.5hours ride. 
Training Stress Score or TSS
I think of this as a "point collection" for my exercise as it measures as a function of intensity and duration of the workout. You score a TSS of 100 points if you can ride at 1.0IF for 60minutes. Similarly, an 1.0IF for 30mins gives you the same TSS as a 0.5IF for 60mins. How TSS aid in your performance? It's an indication of the work you did (performance) and how much rest you may require to recover. 
Making Training Fun
With the basic knowledge of Power in cycling and usage of Power meter, you can then train within your efficient parameter. Couple this training with Heart Rate, you may just find the sweet spot where you can cruise at 60% HR effort while churning out strong enough IF to sustain a race throughout. 
This will allow you to strategize and stick to your power output no matter what the race condition is. Imagine two triathletes cycling against a strong headwind, one continue to push at 35km/h at a higher power output he is not trained for, while the other play it smart by sticking to his training power against the headwind at a lower speed and keeping up the power with higher cadence, without burning out and have a lot more juice left in the tank to complete the race strongly. With this knowledge, I train between 0.85IF and 0.95IF. 
At my current 254w FTP, that translate to a moderate (by cyclist standard) a 3.1w/kg power output. This will typically translate to 220W average power - and I aim to improve on my FTP while maintaining the IF. Let's try to get the W/kg to a sustained 3.5w/kg and above!
Or fun things you can do is to try to break some virtual record by doing a 1-minute sprint interval. Imagine if I can cycle as strong and as fast as above at the power and average speed - I be done with my 180km Ironman cyclign in 3 hours, including water stop. ;-)

Malaysia Airlines - New Business Class Seats on A330 Aircrafts

For the past 12 months, I've been travelling a fair bit and was fortunate (very in fact) to experience flying on Business Class (BC) for flight more than 4-hours (in total) due to company policies. Happy to report that I am a big fan of Malaysia Airlines (MH), choosing to fly on the National Airline as first choice. Only when the route is not supported by MH, I will opt for the One World alliance airlines so I could continue to enjoy the benefit as an Enrich member. 
My first Business Class experience - MH16 March 2015 onboard B777-200
Most recent Business Class experience - MH002 March 2016 onboard A380-800
My regional travel are mostly less than 4 hours (Manila, Hong Kong, Chennai is a 3:50, 10mins short of 4hours to experience BC ;-)) and I will not likely to experience the new A330-300 Business Class. However, the good PR people in MH has shared with me a short write up so I could share this with you readers in return. My thoughts on the new seats, based on my limited flying experience will be included as TS - [Comments] in the write up below. 

Hopefully, that will help you understand the differences. For comparison, I will pull the two planes I've flew BC with MH, the A380 and the B777.

Please also bear in mind that the other two planes services longer haul aka >10hours. The business strategy for MH has now focused more towards regional travel, hence, the introduction of A330.

Malaysia Airlines - New Business Class Seats on A330 Aircrafts
On Tuesday, 22nd March 2016, Malaysia Airlines unveiled its first A330-300 aircraft fitted with the new Business Class seats at its Engineering Complex in Sepang. The new seats has taken off on its first flight, MH141, from Kuala Lumpur to Sydney on 23 March 2016.

The launch event was officiated by Malaysia Airlines’ Chief Commercial Officer, Paul Simmons, who was joined by the airline’s staff, invited guests as well as members of the media. All guests were given the opportunity to experience the fully revamped Business Class cabin.

Here are some cool facts on those seats;
· Measures at 44 inches, with a width of 20 inches, and a length of 76 inches when it’s laid out flat. 
TS - A380 is 72inches (pitch), 22inches (width) and 74inches (flat). B777 is 62(P), 18.5(W) and angled seat (meaning not real lie flat, but the seat comes with an attachment to raise the leg rest up, appearing to be laying flatter. 

· One of the best received business class seats in the industry. 
TS - A few frequent traveler says it reflect the Aer Lingus BC ;-)

· Come with increased working space, with 90% of all seats having direct aisle access. 
TS - from the PR photos, it appear to have more space compared to both A380 and B777, Hopefully with more privacy too. The forward facing seating doesn't allow much privacy, and it's evident if you are seated at the Aisle. Even with the  privacy screen in-between the seats up, your work are still visible by the person across the aisle.

· 1-2-1 and 1-2-2 seat layout. 
TS - A380 is 2-2-2 and B777 is 2-3-2. All are forward facing. A reverse herring bone would be nice for privacy and space. This will reduce the numbers of seat by at least 10 and potentially raise the price of BC significantly.

· Extra stowage space for personal items. 
TS - hopefully, as both the A380 and B777 is not as generous if you sit on the aisle side. Window seats has ample, in fact too much storage on the A380.

· Each seat is equipped with a 16 inch touch screen inflight entertainment system. 
TS - A380 is 17, B777 is 10.4
  
The new Business Class seats are available on Malaysia Airlines’ A330 flights between Kuala Lumpur and Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea, China and India from March 2016 onwards.

Some photos taken from the MH page, specific to the A330 new BC configuration of 1-2-2 seating. 



MH has uploaded a video of the BC as well. Enjoy.

Skechers GoRunRide5 Review

GoRunRide5 - January 2016
Apologies for the long silence as I've been busy with work and travel. Currently trying to recover from a recent +2GMT trip, returned back to +8GMT and now at GMT. Lost many weekends of solid training and many more races that I've wanted to sign up and race. 

I now consider myself to be in semi-sabbatical when it comes to racing - BUT, training continues; because it's an active lifestyle I've committed and very much ingrained with the family. The lapse of blog entry also meant my writing skills are getting bad. Pardon the lesser than usual details. 

This time, a long overdue review of the Skechers GoRunRide5 (GRR5) which was given to me around Christmas last year and never seen the light until mid-January. Since then, this pair which precedes GRR4 (duh!) has been my mainstay running shoe as I work the miles (or KM if you are SI-inclined). No less than 150miles on these babies since January and here is the report.
GoRunRide5 Profile
The GRR5 was a total change from GRR4 both outsole and upper. To start with the upper, the new diamond mesh provide both medial and lateral support. Coupled with a 3D printed overlay it provides support to toe box. here is a closer look of the overlay and the diamond mesh. Note the silver thingy is the reflector and the blue crash pad has been made bigger/higher when compared to GRR4. 


The 3D synthetic overlay runs around the shoe providing support to critical part. This include the heel and the mid portion where it provides very good and secured fit.

As mentioned, the outsole has been revamped. Evidence of the differences between GRR4 and GRR5 is seen in the photo below. You can see that the GoImpulse pods has been moved to be more centric around the forefoot and the mid-sole received larger area to counter wear and tear for mid-foot strikers. The GoImpulse pods at the back of GRR5 has been moved slightly further downwards nearer to the heel-strike area. This may (when I received the GRR5) help manage premature wear of the GoSeries and it was convincing (now, after 150miles) that Skechers does some change to ensure wear and tear is lesser of a worry for runners. (Scroll to the bottom to see condition of the GoImpulse pods after approx 150miles)
Outsole differences between GRR5 (left) and GRR4
From the photo above you may noticed that the pods has been re-designed as well to resemble a 5-petal shaped instead of the chevron(<<) style in GRR4.

No changes to the midsole as it is made with the same lightweight flexible proprietary Resaltyte® injection molded compound for impact protection and response. However, you may noticed that the thickness has been increased as shown in the photo below. Despite this, GRR5 is very much a 4mm drop shoe (without the removable insole). Stack height is 16-20 Fore-Rear configuration.
Obviously taller, by a fraction
Increase to the Resalyte® compound made the outsole look a lot bulkier than its predecessor. What surprises me was that the GRR5 is a much firmer feel shoe compared to GRR4, and surprisingly more responsive as well. Those of you running on the GRR (original) to GRR3 will know the shoe to be less than responsive. The previous GoRunRide series main purpose was to offer better cushioning compared to the GoRun series. 
Thicker Resalyte. A 16 mm front and 20mm rear gives a 4mm drop 
I may not be the only one that say this, the GRR5 gave me the feel of the GoRun series (in this case, GR4). The firmness and responsiveness was very GR4 feel. Makes me wonder if it was the same shoe sometimes.

Continuing on the review is the presence of the Quick Fit loop at the back that functions to allow you to wear the shoe a bit faster without unlacing. I find it to be useful after doubting the function in the GRR4. While it caused the rear part to be higher than usual, some user does complain (of the GRR4) to cause some chaffing when they run at the Achilles area. Lucky for me, it's not an issue.
One nice touch I noticed on the GRR5 is that this same area where the Quick Fit loop were has a new material treatment that potentially may reduce your chances of chaffing at the heel area. It was microfiber like when compared to GRR4. As you all may know,l I run sockless and has no issues with Skechers running sockless. 
If you noticed from the photo above, the GRR5 has a very breathable upper. Those of you worry about hot shoe when running in mid-afternoon will be happy to note I've not had that feeling when running. But when wearing socks (in-flight, during travel transit) does heat up a little. When compared to GRR4, the tongue of the GRR5 is slightly thinner (not noticeable in photo, but it's obvious when you feel the material in real life)
GRR4 on left vs GRR5 tongue thickness
No changes were the lace type that is flat (not-round). A second pair (white) was included with the GRR5 with the blue-black as standard to match this pair of GRR5. Weight wise, the GRR5 comes in not anymore heavier than the GRR4 despite the additional cushioning material. 240grams or roughly 8.5oz for US11. No issues as it is still light compared to many traditional trainers.
On the run, the shoe did not disappoint as it provide quick response and good grip in various weather. I've so far ran the GRR5 in typical Asia weather (rain or shine, and hot), cooler Johannesburg with loose sand/gravel conditions and colder London where it can get wet and slippery when you least expected it. it has been holding well and my mainstay for this quarter. 
Skechers for Work and Leisure





After 150miles, the condition of the outsole/pods is per what you can see below. Pretty impressive I would say with even wear all around. Skechers could had gotten the formula right this time around with good balance of everything a runner would want - support, weight, durable and nice color ;-)
Noticable more wear on the heel portion - a reality check that I am not mid-fore striking as much as I should be. 

Note: This pair of Skechers GoRunRide5 is sponsored by Skechers Malaysia via collaboration with 2ndSkin Asia Athletes program. Thank you Skechers Malaysia and 2ndSkinThe Skechers GOrun Ride 5 retails at RM439 for the men's and RM399 for the women's. It is available in store (Malaysia) now. Last checked, not launched in Manila until May 2016.

Skechers GoRun Ultra Road Review

#GoFastGoPlush
The mighty cushioned shoe from Skechers Performance (Malaysia) has just gotten better in the form of GoRun Ultra Road (GRUR). An iteration of the proven GoRun Ultra, which is very much a shoe made for the trail and occasional road; I  called it hybrid and indeed it has served me very well until today (my 3rd pair of GRU now). 
The cat approved it too
Those of you that has been using GRU would know that this shoe range (the Ultra) is bulky by Skechers' standard. However, despite the outlook, it's light and super flexible. Those of you using them would also know that the sole doesn't hold up too well "on the road". 

Throughout the 3-years I've been on Skechers, I have also learnt that while the wear could look excessive, it doesn't effect the performance of the shoe (grip and cushioning). My 3rd Pair of GRU has clocked no less than 400km and still clocking in the mileage. The new GRUR now come with a completely new outsole said to help it last the road pounding.


The Fitting
Now to the usual way of me doing a shoe review. First off is the fitting of the shoe. GRUR carry on the fitment of the GRU. Wide toebox and i took US11 as my feet seemed to had grown over the past two years (hopefully not because I gained weight and the feet spreading out more to hold my weight). I have intention to use this shoe without socks (as usual) and the liner that comes with it should provide sufficient space if I choose to use socks. Over the years I've collected different liner from different Skechers shoes as well. 
Same wide toe box between GRUR (left) and GRU (right)
The GRUR is a 4mm drop shoe. Stack height of 30mm on the heel (tall!) and 26mm on the front. Removing the liner doesn't make the show decreases in drop. In comparison, one of the more famous cushioned shoe has a stack height of 33mm-29mm (Heel-Front) and still has a 4mm drop. (if you guessed Hoka One One, you are a shoe-aware person)
Similar persona between GRUR and GRU when it comes to Cushioning. 
Being a bulk of a shoe meant the GRUR too will be heavier than it's other cousins. Coming in at 10.4oz (295grams) for US9, my US11 clocked in at close to 330grams (approx 11.5oz). As heavy as it may appear, the cushioning and the ride more than make up for it. 
330grams approx
If you are a heavier person (I would say more than 85kg), you will find this shoe very forgivingly light with the cushioning. (Shoe-aware runner - do you know which make and model comes in at approx 390grams to suit heavier runners? It's named "The Beast" by Brooks). 

Does the weight bother my average weight (73kg)? Hardly. In fact, for the bulk (read:size) and weight, the shoe felt snappy and and doesn't seems to give you the sinking feeling. On some occasions, the cushioning gives the perception that it feel sloppy...but you aren't once you realised you are still running at your normal training pace. Deceiving.

Rocker-like stance. Midsole dominates to encourage mid-foot and forefoot landing
Completely New Outsole
The newly designed sole of the GRUR is made up of Resalyte material. The midsole material is plush and provides a nice soft landing . The Outsole layer is a much firmer and resilient material. The design of the outsole works around the existing GOrun series and is much firmer (when I compare to the GoRun4 and GoBionic2, but not as firm when compared to GoMeb). The more resilient GOimpulse sensors were placed strategically around the outsole for added durability. Testing it, the Pods provide good traction and feel as well.
Significantly different outsole from layout to material. GRUR (right) promises better resilient to wear and tear when compared to GRU
The GRUR is a complete revamp of the original GOrun Ultra. The upper of the Skechers GOrun Ultra Road is designed with the Skechers Performance FITKNIT® technology providing a breathable and comfortable fit. It is completely knitted upper without any overlays and seams, save for the bonded logo on the side. It's completely runnable sock-less, which is what I usually do. 
Drainage hole
Apart from the different material upper, there are two drain holes noticeable on both the sides. I supposed it is to help with draining of water should you get your feet into puddle of water or if you happen to take a shower at the water station. My thoughts on this is that it may help dispersing water out of the shoe. However, it will also encourage water from going in... so you may want to avoid running into puddles of water if you don't like your shoe (or socks) wet.
The drainage hole looked crude from this photo due to the glue that was used to stick the mesh. 
Completely New Upper
The GRUR comes with FITKNIT® upper. You may had read about it in my review of GRR Bolt where I even ran a water-holding (or lack off, which was a good proof that the knit doesn't hold water) experiment. 
Significant differences in density of FitKnit upper lend superb breathability
Interestingly, the GRUR has two knit "density" as opposed to GRR Bolt. The knit was a lot more "closer" in the support area to provide structure and it is "spaced out" in areas where breath-ability is required like top and side. The dual-knitted density itself lend the GRUR a very distinctive look. 
So breathable that even the liner has holes to promote water drainage while allowing hot air to be pushed out
The tongue was thick and is not sewn down. There was initial worry it may bunch up but that was an unproven concern after using it for a few runs. Maybe there is opportunity to reduce the thickness of the tongue to shave off some grams and lend even better (as if not airy enough) breath-ability?

Safety wise, the GRUR comes with reflective marking on the front and back of the shoe, and on the tongue where it allow shoelaces to tread through. Sufficient enough, but I would encourage you to run with lights front and back if you are the nite-runner or early morning type. Better be safe than sorry.
Blings
Verdict
The GRUR is a familiar stranger. Familiar in the sense of the plush cushioning and a stranger with the new material and two different approach to the FITKNIT®. In many ways the cushioning is expected and despite the size and bulk, doesn't hamper your movement or how fast you can run. If you are looking for a pair of cushioned shoe, this may be one of your three choices that I know in the market. By the way, if you have experience with the GRU being flexible...
Roll it all up
The GRUR doesn't dissapoint either... convincing enough despite the new material upper and sole!
Cushioned and flexible
Note: This pair of Skechers GoRun Ultra Road is sponsored by Skechers Malaysia via collaboration with 2ndSkin Asia Athletes program. Thank you Skechers Malaysia and 2ndSkin! This pair is launched this week (today!). Retailing at RM499 for men and RM469 for women (Semenanjung). RM10-20 more for East Malaysia.
