As part of a growing trend of power meters becoming more affordable, Power2Max announced today that prices for its range of power meters will be lowered by up to 21 percent for North American customers.
The entry-level Power2Max Classic with FSA Gossamer Megaexo cranks is now available for $599—that’s for a full-featured power meter with cranks. The popular Type S power meter is now available starting at $899. The power meters are designed, engineered and manufactured in Germany and are used by pro triathletes Nils Frommhold and Tim Don.
“We are happy to pass the benefit of a strong dollar on to our customers,” said Nicolas Theopold, CEO of Power2Max North America, in a press release. “At $599, the Power2Max Classic with FSA Gossamer cranks offers unseen value for money to our customers and will enable even more cyclists to ride with [a] power meter.”
The price adjustment was facilitated by recent increases in the value of the U.S. dollar and is reflected across the entire range of Power2Max products. With models for 17 different crank sets and versions for road, MTB, and track, the company offers a wide selection of models.
As the power meter market gets flooded with more options, several other brands, such as PowerTap and Pioneer, have also been dramatically cutting prices of power meters since last season. In the first 10 years of power meters, most were in the range of $1,500 and up, but the recent price drops have made riding with power a possibility for more triathletes.
