Big Stocks & Big Sales
PowerMeterCity have stocked up for a massive sale on popular 4iiii crank arms. So this is a genuine 25% off sale with a great chance to bag a year-best deal. Unusually high discounts for the early season.
In the UK CyclePowerMeters offer 10% off 4iiii with the code the5krunner10.
The cranks in question are stacked with the 4iiii Precision on the Shimano 105 5800, Shimano Ultegra 6800 and Shimano 9000 arms.
Cranks represent a great chance to get an accurate and robust piece of kit. If you are going down the single-sided route then a left-side crank is probably nearly as easy to change as a pair of power meter pedals…but CHEAPER.
4iiii’s solutions definitely rank them in the best power meter guide.
Cranks are a GREAT, low-risk and inexpensive way for newbies to powermeters to quickly get into the game.
Many people historically have gone down the STAGES route for cranks but much of that choice of STAGES and their volume of sales probably came down to their marketing association with Team SKY. Personally I’d go for power meter pedals but if I went for a crank-based solution it would be 4iiii.
The standout feature for me with 4iiii is the accuracy of their power meter.
Indeed, for accuracy (error) 4iiii wins:
- Stages 2%
- 4iiii 1%
For the entry-level Shimano 105 cranks the sale price is $360
