There are several power meters that will work, depending on which Race Face MTB crankset you have:
Left Crank Arm Power Meter
Stages Cycling makes a left side crank arm for Race Face Era, Next SL, Next R and other 30 mm spindle versions. This power meter will replace your current left side crank arm and will measure left leg power. Please note you must also purchase a Stages E Spindle along with the power meter. (This power meter will not work with Race Face 24 mm spindle cranksets).
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: Affordable, easy to install, don’t have to change crankset
Cons: Measures left leg power only
Spider Power Meters
The power2max NGeco Race Face MTB Power Meter is one of our our go to power meter for Race Face cranksets. It will fit all Race Face direct mount cranksets (regardless of spindle size), including Era, Next SL, Next R, Turbine, Atlas and Aeffect. It’s a superb power meter in that it’s accurate, extremely durable, measures the power from both legs, is reasonably priced and allows you to keep your current Race Face crankset.
Please note, the power2max uses a 104 BCD chainring configuration. So you will need a power2max compatible MTB chainring as well.
The Sigeyi AXO Race Face MTB Power Meter is another great option for Race Face cranksets. Like the power2max, it will fit all Race Face direct mount cranksets. It also measures power from both legs and is accurate and readable. However, it is more affordable than the power2max while not sacrificing any features or functionality.
Pros: Moderately priced, VERY reliable, don’t have to change crankset, measures both legs
Power Meter Pedals
MTB power meter pedals are also an option as they can easily be installed on any MTB crankset. We have the Garmin Rally XC, SRM X-Power and SRM X-Power Flat Pedals.
Pros: Easy to install, works on any bike, can move from bike to bike, don’t have to change crankset
Cons: Some versions are pricey
