There are several power meters that will work a SRAM Force crankset. However, there are different versions of Force cranksets, so please see our notes below regarding compatibility with each version.
Left Crank Arm Power Meter
Force 1, Force CX1 and Force 22 BB30:
Stages Cycling makes the Stages Carbon for SRAM BB30 Power Meter which is compatible with the SRAM Force 1, Force CX1 and Force 22 BB30 cranksets when used with the Stages Spindle B. This power meter replaces your left side crank arm and measures left leg power. (Please note, it is NOT compatible with SRAM Force DUB or GXP cranksets.)
These power meters attach a sensor to the inside of the left crank arm. On some bikes, there is not enough room between the left crank arm and the chainstay for the sensor to clear the frame. Therefore, you should make sure you have at least 10 mm of clearance. Also, please make sure that you don’t have a bottom bracket mounted rear brake (used on some aero and TT bikes). Please refer to the image below.
SRAM Force AXS Power Meter Crank Arm
If you have a Force D2 crankset, the SRAM Force AXS Power Meter Crank Arm is a great option. You simply replace your current left crank arm with the SRAM Force power meter. This Force power meter features a spindle-based design, meaning the power meter sensors are neatly and securely packaged within the DUB spindle for a clean integration, minimum weight and maximum durability. It comes in both Regular and Wide versions.
Pros: Affordable, easy to install, don’t have to change crankset
Cons: Measures left leg power only
Spider Power Meters
Force D1 and D2 8-Bolt (DUB and GXP):
SRAM Force AXS Power Meter Spider
The SRAM Force AXS Power Meter Spider bolts directly on to Force D1 and D2 8-bolt cranks. It is a 2x chainring but it uses a 1-piece integrated power meter and chainring design. This means the power meter spider and chainrings are bonded together, which makes the power meter lightweight and stiff. It measures power from both legs and features Quarq’s premier DZero power measurement technology which promises accurate and consistent power readings regardless of the climate or conditions.
SRAM RED/Force AXS 107 BCD Power Meter Spider
The SRAM RED/Force AXS 107 BCD Power Meter Spider is similar to the version above, however it uses a 107 BCD and replaceable chainrings. It is not as light and stiff as the version above, however because it uses replaceable chainrings, it will last longer and allows you to use either 1x or 2x chainrings. Please see our article for a complete comparison of these two power meters: SRAM Force AXS Power Meter Spider vs Force AXS 107 BCD Power Meter Spider Comparison.
Please note if you have a Force Wide crankset with 43/30 chainrings, please see our article: Can I install a SRAM RED/Force AXS 107 BCD Power Meter Spider on my SRAM Force 43/30 Wide crankset?
Force 1, Force CX1 and Force 22 BB30 3-bolt:
power2max NGeco SRAM Road Power Meter
If your SRAM crankset uses the 3-bolt interface, we would recommend the power2max. Like the power meters above, it’s a spider-based power meter that measures power from both legs. power2max makes some of the most reliable power meters we sell and we use them on a number of our own bikes.
The power meter is compatible with 110 BCD 5-bolt, 130 BCD 5-bolt or 110 BCD 4-bolt chainrings based on the version ordered. In many cases, you can use your existing chainrings assuming they use the same configuration as the power meter you order. Please see the Compatibility tab on the product page for more information.
Pros: Moderately priced, VERY reliable, don’t have to change crankset, measures both legs
Power Meter Pedals
All Force cranks:
Power meter pedals can be installed on any crankset. They are reliable, accurate, easy to install and can be moved between bikes. We carry every power meter pedal available including ones from Favero, Garmin, SRM/LOOK and Wahoo. This includes both single- and dual-sided versions as well as pedals for SPD-SL, LOOK Keo and Speedplay cleats.
Pros: Easy to install, works on any bike, can move from bike to bike, don’t have to change crankset
