After lots of research I arrived at the conclusion that the easiest way to add a power meter to my current bike (based on crankset, bottom bracket, etc.) was via a pedal-based meter. Happy to report that the offset between these pedals and my indoor trainer was minimal, if any, which has meant a smooth transition and consistent power whether riding indoors or out. And if I change bikes in the future I am assured that these will remain compatible.
I splurged on the two-sided version to get the extra data, but I don't actually see how to access it and now I'm questioning whether it's compatible with my current head unit. Something I didn't research ahead of time. I would probably recommend to save a bit and get the one-sided version, but if you go for two-sided make sure your head unit is compatible.
I've seen other reviews that suggest that the clip-in action on these is less secure than non-power pedals, but that has not been my experience. I've actually found these to be more secure than my previous pedals, even on the loosest setting.
Overall I'm still happy with the purchase. And maybe someday I'll get a new head unit and unlock the additional data.
Fairly simple to use with tons of great data, massive technical improvement after many years using and training from powercrank data. The peddle data is really fun to play with and train around. With the actual degrees of power and degrees of peak power delivery everyone has a simple, low effort ability to focus on power delivery. Far too many of us spend countless hours trying to generate more watts, when efficient delivery could bring fastest and easiest power improvement. These peddles quickly allow detailed focus and very simply show the effort and delivery improvement. They work mechanically very well although I am mostly gravel and some road use, very little actual Mtn bike usage.
I have been waiting for SPD power meter pedals to come out for years and now I finally have a pair. I recently purchased a bike with a built in power meter after buying these pedals for my previous bike and I switched these pedals over and use the data from these pedals while riding my new bike 2/2 to the advanced power metrics available while using Garmin devices. I haven't figured out how to use the metrics but hopefully as people look into the metrics we can figure out how to utilize them to train smarter and more efficiently
I love these pedals . .very easy set up, good power readings and works with multiple types of cycling computers e.g., Wahoo & Hammerhead. I have two other Pioneer power meters which are crank based, but these pedals can be move from bike to bike and if you change crank arm length are not a pain to move to new crankset. It may seem slightly pricing, but the versatility of moving them makes them a cost efficient choice.
I love them good adjustability either the familiar spd snap in confidence. The power data has been flawless to my Garmin 1030. I only wish they could be a little thinner like the xtr.
Very nice pedals, click in and out securely and consistently.
Power measurement and additional Garmin-specific info is top notch.
These are very heavy pedals though - not sure if they can make the bodies any lighter. But the quality is there.
Very happy how easy these pedals are to use. They can be changed between bikes which I do between my MTB and Gravel bike. They also connect to the wahoo computer very easily and quickly. No issues so far and itâ€™s great to have accurate power meter data along on all my rides.
I just received my pedals i bought on special over the Memorial day weekend special. The function is outstanding i just with they were about $200 less. The only other downside is that they are heavy as lead. I normally run titanium Xpedo's so these are triple the weight. I'll use them training, but not racing.
I have these mounted on my Gravel/Cross bike. They installed easily and have worked without interruption on two races and a number of training rides (maybe 500 miles so far?). They are expensive, so only "reasonable" in value for me.
Iï¿½ve been waiting for a dual side power meter that I can move from bike to bike, these are the one. Just put them on like any other pedal and ride.
I'm very happy with the performance and data aspects of the pedals but i still think that they're way too heavy. I'll train with them but not race with them.
The pedals are great, and easy to move from one bicycle to another. A disadvantage is that they require to raise the saddle, as the foot will be much higher than on a normal pedal.
