    • There are 5 main different types of power meters. The “type” refers to where on the bike the power meter is located and measures power. The 5 main types are:

      1) Crankset
      2) Spider
      3) Pedal
      4) Crank
      5) Handlebars

      If you are not sure which type you want, leave this option blank to see everything.

  • Power Measurement
    • Some power meters measure power from just the left leg, some measure from the right leg and some are able to measure power from both legs. Measuring power from both legs is often more accurate, however these power meters are sometimes more expensive.

      Leave this option blank to see everything.

      Power Measurement
    • Power meters that measure both legs can often also tell you how much power each leg is generating (left vs. right leg power), however there are two different ways this is accomplished.

      1) Actual left vs. right side power:  Power meters that have two power sensors and can tell you exactly how much power each leg is generating.

      2) Estimated left vs. right side power: Power meters that have just one sensor and use an algorithm to estimate your left vs. right leg power.

      If seeing your exact left vs. right leg power is important to you, we suggest selecting Actual. If you are not concerned about your left vs. right leg power, select Estimated or leave this blank.

  • Compatibility
    • Some power meters are only compatible with certain bikes. Please select the type of bike you want to put a power meter on.

    • If you would like to install a power meter on your existing crankset (as opposed to buying a new power meter crankset), please select your crankset from the options listed.

      If you don't see your crankset, please contact us and we'll get it added. We've done our best to add the more common cranksets but this one is tricky as there are lots of different cranksets out there!

      Tip - In most cases there are just one or two power meters that are compatible with a given crankset. Therefore, if you do select a crankset from this list, we suggest leaving the other filters on this page blank to ensure you see any possible power meter that is compatible with your crankset.

    • If you're looking to buy a power meter crank arm or crankset, please select your desired crank arm length.

      If you are looking to buy a pedal-, spider- or handlebar-based power meter (these types of power meters don't include cranks), leave this option blank.

    • If you are looking to buy a power meter pedal, please select the cleat type you would like.

      If you are looking for a different type of power meter (anything other than a pedal), or would like to see all options, leave this blank.

  • Ease of Use
    • Some power meters, such as pedals or crank arms, can be installed in a few minutes. Other power meters such as cranksets and spiders, take a bit more work.

      Leave this option blank to see everything.

      Installation
    • Some power meters, like pedals or handlebar mounted units, are compatible with any bike and can be moved from bike to bike easily. Other power meters such as cranksets or spiders, are not usually moved between bikes.

      Leave this option blank to see everything.

      Easy To Move Between Bikes
    • Power meters need to be frequently calibrated (technically referred to as a zero-offset) in order to maintain their accuracy. This can be done in two ways:

      1) Automatic - The power meter does this for you while you ride.

      2) Manual - You are responsible for calibrating your power meter before you ride, using your bike computer or smart phone app. Please note, the process of manually calibrating is easy and only takes about 15 seconds to complete.

  • Other Features
    • If you're looking to buy a power meter crank arm or crankset, please select the crank arm material you prefer. Carbon fiber crank arms are typically lighter and stiffer than aluminum, however they are usually more expensive.

      If you are looking to buy a pedal-, spider- or handlebar-based power meter (these types of power meters don't include cranks), leave this option blank.

    • Changes in the ambient temperature during a ride can impact the accuracy of your power meter. To address this, some power meters have Active Temperature Compensation (ATC). Power meters with this technology automatically adjust for changes in temperature during your ride, which keeps your power meter accurate. Please note, some power meters don’t have ATC, but they have automatic calibration (explained above). This largely accomplishes the same goal so for purposes of this tool, we treat any power meter with ATC or automatic calibration, the same.

    • Some power meters use user replaceable coin cell batteries while others use rechargeable batteries. In general, power meters with replaceable coin cell batteries get a bit longer battery life. However, with rechargeable batteries, you don't have to worry about purchasing new batteries. The choice is yours.

    • Power meter warranties range from 1 year to 5 years, with 1-2 years being most common.
