The PowerTap P2 is now listed at powertap.com but as of 16October there is nothing there except a name and placeholder. Josh from PowerMeterCity has given me the specs he has from the PowerTap rep, listed below.
Even though there is a dearth of information out there; fear not, you can pre-order these babies right NOW and with a 10% discount at PowerMeterCity (info below).
Let’s start off with a beauty parade. Beautiful, that is if you like the silver look of the forged aluminium.
Despite a decreased weight when compared to the P1 and increased battery life when compared to the P1, the P2 looks highly similar to the P1. If it’s anything like the P1 it will be a very solid performer.
- L/R measurement over BLE/ANT+. Not clear if it is combined channel BLE
- Weight 199g/pedal (32g lighter than P1 – a superflous analogue/digital component has been removed)
- AAA battery giving up to 60-80 hours (Lithium recommended, aforesaid component consumed the juice before). P1 is 60 hours.
- Claimed Accuracy +/- 1.5%
- Simple spanner/wrench installation
- Stack height 14.0mm
- Spindle Length 53mm
- Some improvements to internal component manufacture might extend the life of bearings which should be Eu-serviceable (link to: slowtwich.com)
- Single-sided P2S model is not announced
- There will probably be numerous subtle changes like battery cap improvements
See how the P2 compares in detail to the other PM pedals…
