The pedal has a carbon body with the contact surface made with stainless steel for optimum stability and power transfer. The spindle includes all the electronic components. It is assembled with an oversized ball bearing and a needle bearing to ensure a better load distribution.

The electronics measure power, heart rate, speed, distance, location, torque analysis, cadence, balance, normalized power, torque effectiveness, intensity and training stress score.

A double seal system on the inside and end cap on the external provides water tightness of the axle. Lithium ion batteries provide a claimed 100-hour battery life. A magnetic connector can recharge both pedals simultaneously with no need to remove pedals.

The power meter uses both Bluetooth LE and ANT+ wireless compatibility.

The pedal itself provide tension from Look’s level 9 to 18. The pedals weigh 155 grams each …read more
