ConsiderationsThe InfoCrank isn’t compatible with all frames. However between their M30 and 24 mm models, the majority of frames are indeed covered

Notes

(1) When considering weight, be sure to calculate the added weight of the power meter. For example, if a PowerTap hub weighs 320 grams, but the hub you are replacing weighs 250 grams, the net addition is 70 grams.

(2) The Verve InfoCrank M30 weighs 690 grams. The Verve InfoCrank 24 mm weights 726 grams.

(3) Please see the Verve InfoCrank product page for more information regarding compatibility. If you have any questions, please contact us.

(4) CPS stands for Crank Position System and is a technology used by Verve Cycling in order to measure cadence with their InfoCrank power meter. The technology measures cadence internal to the cranks, using the strain gauges to read the tangential load.  CPS technology is extremely accurate and is able to detect cadence pulses regardless of power or pedaling style.
