This is part of the main review for the Favero bePRO which just covers the less interesting unboxing and contents.

The pedals come in a nicely designed black and red box. Securely packed; initially the whole box was feeling pretty heavy.

Not to worry about the weight. As you can see there’s a lot of tools and bits in the box. Phew!

Even more bits than you initially think. Open up the little black boxes (shown above) on each side of the main box and you also get cleats, washers and spare usb socket covers for the pedals.

And there is even more when we cover all the charging cables. I’ve just shown the UK adapter. Naturally it comes with several adapters. You can see the USB mains charger will plug straight into the wall and allow two micro-USB cables to attach and charge both pedals simultaneously. Quite sensible really.

Without reading the manual it’s pretty obvious how to hook up all the bits together.

Taking the rocket science a step further here are both pedals attached. You could imagine no doubt how I could plug the plug into a wall socket 🙂

Weights

The Favero bePRO weighs in at 154g per pedal, although the official datasheet says 156g.

This compares favourably to the competition:

Powertap P1 Pedal 149g without batteries (datasheet)

Garmin Vector 2 179g including pod (datasheet)

Dimensions

It’s a pedal. It’s pedal-sized.

Dimensions are 93mm x 96mm x 37mm (dia). A detailed technical drawing is (here) on page 2..

The only two things I could see to worry about as far as dimensions go are the circular housing to the inside of the foot position – the bit the USB cable plugs into. Possibly this might catch on some shoes. Mine were fine.

The other thing is the Q-factor/tread which is 54mm. You can probably add 1-2mm to that if you have carbon cranks with a recessed socket which will require a washer. That might change your optimal vertical leg alignment slightly and might slightly increase the chance of your pedal hitting the ground when cornering. I doubt this is a material consideration for 99.9% of cyclists. If you are concerned about this level of detail no doubt you can cycle carefully round corners and buy cleats that allow sufficient left-right adjustment to compensate.
