—-Press Release Follows———–
PowerTap reasserts its position as market leader with the addition of two new power meters to their portfolio. Alongside their industry benchmarked hub-based power meters and wheelsets, PowerTap is coming to market with their P1 pedal and C1 chainring. Through years of observations, testing, development and hard work, PowerTap is committed to providing power measurement products with the accuracy that cyclists deserve. With the introduction of these new products, PowerTap will lead the industry by becoming the first and only cycling power meter company with a complete portfolio of power meter products for multiple locations on the bike.
The P1 pedal is a simple, intelligent and uncompromising design that provides the same proven PowerTap accuracy and reliability. The simple one-piece design easily mounts to any crank and does not require calibration nor installation angle setting, providing a true “plug-and-play” experience. The P1 also features dual band ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART for compatibility with a multitude of head units and smart devices. Plus, the independent measurement opens the possibility for a new set of pedaling metrics previously unavailable. Estimated retail price for the P1 is $1200.00 USD.
The C1 chainring is a full featured, crank-based power meter that features dual-sided measurement. Available in multiple chainring tooth options for 5 bolt, 110 BCD cranks, the C1 mounts to existing hardware on the bike. Additionally, dual band ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART connectivity make the C1 an obvious choice for riders looking for more features and better value. Estimated retail price for the C1 is $700.00 USD.
“We have spent the past 15 years learning from and educating cyclists on all facets of training with power,” says PowerTap President, Jeff Frehner. “Our passion for making cyclists better by utilizing power measurement remains at the core of why we are in this business. We strive to always be the experts in the power measurement category.”
PowerTap is excited to expand their power meter portfolio and unleash the P1 and C1 to the power training world. Follow PowerTap on Twitter or Facebook or sign up for the newsletter at the bottom of this page to stay up to date on product availability.
