Probikeshop.fr, a leading specialist internet retailer based in France will offer the Verve InfoCrank power meter – on an exclusive basis – to the French market. The InfoCrank will also be distributed in Spain and Portugal through the bikeshop.es and probikeshop.pt websites.
Billed as a ‘game changer for racing and amateur cyclists who wish to improve their sporting performances’, InfoCrank is the choice of British Cycling and Team Great Britain as well as the UCI World Cycling Centre and several other sports institutions, national teams and pro cycling teams.
InfoCrank offers a claimed accuracy of +/-1%, alongside ‘durability and ease of use’. According to Verve, the power meter ‘needs no maintenance, no recalibrations and no sensors (thanks to the intelligent RevUp firmware and the CPS Crank Positioning System integrated technology)’.
The InfoCrank is available in most popular lengths and formats; it displays a real-time output for the right and the left leg (independently measured) to any ANT+ compatible head units.
“We are happy to be working with Probikeshop.fr,” said Bryan Taylor, President of Verve Cycling. “Now French consumers can easily get our InfoCrank online. It will be delivered anywhere in France, in 24 hours! On top of that, Probikeshop has a selected network of 170 local shops – well spread over the French territory – that could act as a service centre for our power meters.”
“I have been testing lots of power meters during the past 5 years,” said James Levitre, Road Category Manager at Probikeshop. “But I must say that I was surprised by the accuracy and durability of the InfoCrank. Verve Cycling is a pretty young company but since the very first release of its power meter device they’ve become one of the most reputed and trusted players in this market.”
As a partner of the extreme Haute Route circuit, InfoCrank will also be the choice of the French first division cycling team U.C. Nantes Atlantique.
