I have a SRAM Force crankset with hidden-bolt design. What power meter can I use?

There are several power meters that will work on a SRAM Force crankset:

Left Crank Arm Power Meter

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.

Please note, 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 for Stages power meters. 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.

Pros: Easy to install, don’t have to change crankset
Cons: Measures left leg power only


Spider Power Meters

power2max NGeco SRAM Road Power Meter

If your SRAM crankset uses the 3-bolt interface, we would recommend the power2max. It’s a spider-based power meter that works really well. power2max makes some of the most reliable power meters we sell.

Sigeyi AXO SRAM Road Power Meter

The Sigeyi AXO is very similar to the power2max above. It fits SRAM 3-bolt road cranksets, measures power from both legs and fits 110 BCD 5-bolt or 110 BCD 4-bolt chainrings based on the version ordered. However, it’s a bit more affordable than the power2max so if you are on a budget, it’s a great option.

Pros: Moderately priced, VERY reliable, don’t have to change crankset, measures both legs
Cons: None

Please note – some customers ask if they can use the SRAM RED/Force AXS 107 BCD Power Meter Spider with their Force 22 crankset. All SRAM Force 22 cranksets with the hidden bolt design use SRAM’s 3-bolt interface. This means your crank won’t be compatible with any of the new SRAM power meters, including the SRAM AXS 107 Power Meter Spider.


Power Meter Pedals

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
Cons: None
