On this page you'll find more info about the Powerbeat G2 powermeter. The best and most affordable double sided powermeter.
The self-contained kit puts an end to factory installation and calibration. It’s packed with two patent-pending mechanical sensors and intelligent processing units – that when attached to the cranks deliver real (not estimated) left and right leg power metrics. POWERBEAT™ is light-weight, durable and consistently accurate enough to be used by professional cyclists – yet affordable enough for unsponsored cyclists. It’s also the first to come with an 60-hour rechargeable battery, and works with ANT+ head units, as well as with Bluetooth® Smart enabled smartphones. At last, a professional-grade power meter that anyone can afford!
Real left & right power measurement
The sensors attach independently to each crank arm. You receive actual (not estimated) left and right leg power metrics, which help in identifying weaknesses, correcting them, and training to your full potential.
The mechanical sensor and its processing comp unit weigh less than 20 grams when attached to each of the crank arms – about the weight of a large bite of an apple!
Installation requires only basic technical skills. All the necessary tools are included in the box, with the exception of the Allen key or wrench necessary for removing the pedals. The downloadable app has clear instructional videos that will guide you every step of the way. The entire installation takes about 30 minutes, though the sensors need to dry for 24 hours after they’re glued.
There is no need for factory calibration or service centers. Everything from installation to calibration and firmware updates is done through the user-friendly app.
The device is durable enough to sustain dust and harsh weather conditions. It even has a built-in temperature compensation mechanism, so the power figures remain consistent regardless of the weather.
POWERBEAT™ sports the industry’s first ecological battery. It comes equipped with a charger and the battery lasts about 60 hours. A notification is sent to the head unit when the battery runs low.
POWERBEAT™ was crafted by passionate cyclists to include all the important ingredients to make a killer power meter: precise left/right data, ease-of-use, durability, low cost, light weight and aesthetics.
It comprises two connected components:
A mechanical sensor contains sophisticated strain gauges, accelerators and gyros that monitor the crank with utmost precision. The innovative sensor is so smart and sensitive; it can collect accurate data from aluminum cranks, and in the near future, carbon cranks as well.
The data gathered from the sensor immediately transmits to the comp unit, which has an embedded patented algorithm that processes the data in real time. The translated data is then transmitted via wireless ANT+ or low energy Bluetooth™ Smart protocols to any standard head unit, even your smartphone.
POWERBEAT™ works with all ANT+ enabled head units, as well as with Bluetooth Smart enabled smartphones (iOS 10 and above or Android 4.4.2 and above).
POWERBEAT™ supports hollow aluminum cranks and in the future, carbon cranks as well.
