2013 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Bike Power Meters And Computers

SRM Rotor 3D+

$3,695, Srm.de
The draw: The original power meter system

SRM has earned a reputation for reliability and quality, and is considered by many to be the gold standard in power meters. The SRM system is crank-based and, from Shimano and Campagnolo cranks to FSA, the company offers more crank options than any other power meter manufacturer—allowing most any rider to match his or her power meter, chainrings and crank to the rest of their group. The unit includes SRM’s PowerControl 7 ANT+ head unit and software that was designed to work with SRM power meters as a system. The SRM will also work with any ANT+ computer head and is available as a power meter (no head) for $750 less.
