What power meter will work on my FSA Gossamer BB30 crankset?

There are several power meters that will work on a FSA Gossamer BB30 crankset:

Left Crank Arm Power Meter

Stages Cycling makes the Stages FSA SL-K BB30 Power Meter which is compatible with the FSA Gossamer BB30 crankset. Please note, this is a carbon power meter crank arm, which is why it’s a bit pricey. Stages does not make an aluminum arm that will fit. Please also note, for a time around 2014, FSA used a pinch bolt style interface (Shimano). You need to confirm that your crankset is not that type, because Stages doesn’t have an arm that will work.

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


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


Crankset Power Meter

Of course, you can also choose to replace your crankset entirely for a new one. This is usually a more expensive option, but opens up the door to many possibilities. Here are our Crankset Road power meters. Assuming you don’t want to change your bottom bracket, you will want to look for a crankset that has a 30 mm spindle. This includes:

  • ROTOR 2INpower Power Meter
  • ROTOR INpower Power Meter
  • power2max ROTOR ALDHU Road Power Meter Crankset
  • power2max Easton Road Power Meter Crankset
  • SRM Origin Road Carbon Power Meter
  • ROTOR INspider ALDHU Road Power Meter Crankset

Pros: Accurate, reliable, measures both legs, some great power meters in this list
Cons: More expensive, more work to install
