4iiii dual-sided power on a Shimano Ultegra R8100 crankset!
4iiii PRECISION PRO Shimano Ultegra R8100 Dual-Sided Crankset
The 4iiii PRECISION PRO Shimano Ultegra R8100 Dual-Sided Crankset combines 4iiii’s 3-D tri-axial strain gauge technology with Shimano’s latest Ultegra R8100 crank. The result is an accurate, lightweight and highly reliable power meter crankset that is accurate to +/- 1.0%.
In addition, this dual-sided 4iiii R8100 power meter crankset features independent left/right power measurement. With a power sensor located on the inside of both crank arms, the power meter can measure power from each leg individually.
The 4iiii is extremely lightweight, adding approximately 20 grams to the Shimano R8100 crankset. It is compatible with both ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART devices, which means you can use it with any bike computer, smart phone or indoor training app. It also comes with a full 3-year warranty.
Please note – this power meter is only compatible with Shimano Ultegra 8100 52/36 chainrings.

Advice From Our Staff:
This is a great option for customers with a Shimano R8100 drivetrain that want to keep an OEM R8100 crankset on their bike but add power. We also like that fact that this crankset measures power from both legs and has a 3-year warranty, which is longer than most power meters.

- Chainrings: 52/36
- Crank arm lengths: 165 mm | 170 mm | 172.5 mm | 175 mm
Other Versions to Consider
Left Side R8100: We also sell the 4iiii PRECISION 3 Shimano Ultegra R8100 Power Meter which is a left side crank arm only. It is more affordable, however it only measures left leg power.
Bottom Bracket: This power meter is compatible with 2x12 road drivetrains and 24 mm Shimano bottom brackets. Most customers that buy it already have a Shimano R8100 crankset on their bike and therefore, it's an easy swap. However, it can be used on any road bike as long as its 2x12 with a 24 mm bottom bracket.
Chainrings: This power meter is only compatible with Shimano Ultegra 8100 52/36 chainrings.
Check Frame Clearance: Crank-arm based power meters like this one attach a sensor on 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 between the left crank arm and the chainstay - and that you don't have a bottom bracket mounted rear brake (used on some aero and TT bikes). The important area to measure is right in the middle of the crank arm. Please refer to the image below.
If you find that you have around 7-9 mm of clearance, what many people will do is simply install a 1 or 2 mm bottom bracket spacer (between the left crank arm and the frame), which will give them the clearance they need.

Common Questions and Answers
Question: How do I determine what length my current cranks are so I can make sure I get the same size?
- Your crank arm length should be printed or stamped on the inside of the left crank arm, usually near the pedal end.
