Power meters: PowerTap P1 Pedals


$1,200, PowerTap.com

The draw: Easily transferrable between bikes

When it comes to portability of power meters, nothing can be moved between bikes as quickly and easily as the PowerTap P1 pedals. They’re simply removed using a hex wrench like any other bike pedals, and can be installed just as quickly with no calibration required. On top of that, they transmit both ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart, enabling compatibility to virtually any bike computer or GPS watch out there. Finally, PowerTap introduced new advanced pedaling metrics this winter that show the force vector display, as well as a heat map of your cycling stroke.
