Power meter specialist PowerTap is coming to market with two new power meters, its P1 pedal and C1 chainring. With the introduction of these new products, PowerTap will become the ‘first and only’ cycling power meter company with a complete portfolio of power meter products for multiple locations on the bike.
The P1 pedal is a ‘simple, intelligent and uncompromising’ design that provides the ‘same proven PowerTap accuracy and reliability’. The simple one-piece design easily mounts to any crank and does not require calibration or installation angle setting, providing a true ‘plug-and-play’ experience.
The P1 also features dual band ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART for compatibility with a multitude of head units and smart devices. The independent measurement opens the possibility for a ‘new set of pedalling metrics previously unavailable’. Estimated retail price for the P1 is US$1,200.
The C1 chainring is a full featured, crank-based power meter that features dual-sided measurement. Available in multiple chainring tooth options for 5 bolt, 110 BCD cranks, the C1 mounts to existing hardware on the bike. The C1 also features dual band ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART connectivity. Estimated retail price for the C1 is US$700.
