Power Meter Pedals for Road Overview
This page contains our power meter pedals for road bikes. Power meter pedals are one of our most popular power meters. They are compatible with any bike, are easy to install and can be moved between bikes. In addition, they are one of the most accurate power meter types.
With these power meter pedals, you have your choice of single- or dual-sided versions. Single-sided pedals have a sensor in one pedal (usually the left) and measure power from one leg. Dual-sided pedals have a sensor in both the left and right pedal and measure a rider’s total power. These dual-sided versions cost a bit more, but are usually more accurate.
We carry every power meter pedal available. This includes pedals from Favero, Garmin and SRM/LOOK. All of these companies have been making power meter pedals for a number of years. They release new versions every 2 to 3 years.
As mentioned above, these road power meter pedals come in single- or dual-sided versions. With both versions you receive a left and right pedal (with the exception of the DUO-Shi, discussed below). However, single-sided pedals have a sensor in one pedal only (usually the left). Therefore, these power meters measure power from just one leg. They double left leg power in order to approximate a rider’s total power output.
Dual-sided pedals have a sensor in both the left and right pedal and therefore measure a rider’s total power. These dual-sided versions cost more, but are usually more accurate due to the fact they measure both legs. In addition, they are able to measure independent left/right leg power.
Favero Assioma DUO-Shi
We wanted to point out an important difference with the Assioma DUO-Shi. The DUO-Shi consists of power meter spindles that you insert into Shimano pedals bodies that you already own. So, unlike the other power meters on this page where you receive a set of pedals, with the DUO-Shi, you receive power meter spindles only.
With road power meter pedals, you have your choice of LOOK Keo or Shimano SPD-SL compatible versions. The Favero Assioma, Garmin Rally RK and SRM/LOOK EXAKT use a LOOK Keo style cleat. LOOK Keo original cleats can also be used with the power meters. The Garmin Rally RS and Favero Assioma DUO-Shi use Shimano SPD-SL cleats. Please also note, none of these pedals are compatible with Speedplay cleats.
Quick Product Comparison:
The Favero Assioma is the most affordable power meter pedal. You can buy the UNO (single-sided) for $459. If you would like a dual-sided version, the most affordable option is the Assioma DUO-Shi at $629 (spindles only) or the Assioma DUO $719 (ready to ride pedals).
The Favero Assioma and Garmin Rally all install just like a normal pedal. Therefore, the installation process is very simple and only takes a minute. This also means you can move them from bike to bike easily.
The SRM/LOOK EXAKT is a bit more work to get installed and configured correctly. It requires that you use a special tool (supplied) and the app to manually set the installation angles. However even with this pedal, installation can usually be done in about 5 minutes or less.
The single-sided version of these road power meter pedals measure power from one leg. The dual-sided versions measure both legs. The dual-sided versions are also able to measure independent left/right power.
All of these power meter road pedals are dual ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART compatible. Therefore, you can used them with any bike computer, smart phone or indoor training app such as Zwift.
The Favero Assioma and SRM/LOOK EXAKT use a rechargeable battery. The Garmin Rally uses a coin cell LR44/SR44 or CR1/3N battery.
The Assioma DUO is the lightest power meter pedal at 149.5 grams per pedal. The SRM/LOOK EXAKT is next at 155 grams per pedal. This is followed closely by the DUO-Shi at 157 grams per pedal (PD-R8000 pedal body) and then the Garmin Rally at 160-163 grams (depending on the version).
