4iiii PRECISION Shimano Ultegra R8000 Power Meter

Introducing the all new 4iiii PRECISION Shimano Ultegra R8000 Power Meter. 4iiii has combined their patent pending 3-D tri-axial strain gauge technology, measured at +/- 1.0% accuracy, with Shimano’s best of breed Ultegra R8000 groupset. The result is one of the lightest, most affordable and most accurate direct force power meters available.

The PRECISION determines your total power based on the force that is generated by your left leg. This left-only design allows for a power meter that is lightweight and easy to install. Specifically, the power meter adds only 9 grams to your crank arm and is installed in about 10 minutes. In addition, the PRECISION is compatible with both ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART devices. This means you can use it with your favorite bicycle computer, watch or smart phone.

Compatibility

Crankset: This 4iiii power meter is compatible with Shimano R8000 cranksets.

Please note, the power meter can also be installed other Shimano road cranksets, as long as they use Shimano's Hollowtech II interface. These cranksets can easily be identified by the two opposing pinch bolts that are used to secure the left side crank arm. Please see the image below and contact us if you have any questions on compatibility.Shimano Hollowtech II Left Crank Arm

Check Frame Clearance: Crank-arm based power meters 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 for the PRECISION 2 and 8 mm of clearance for the PRECISION 3. Also, make sure 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 your clearance is close but not quite sufficient, what many people will do is simply install a 1 or 2 mm bottom bracket spacer (between the left crank arm and the frame). This should provide you with the clearance you need.

    This is an excellent power meter. Took 5 minutes to install and link with head unit. That’s it. Works exactly how it should.

    First to the credit of Power Meter City; ordering was easy. I ordered on 8/3/20, it shipped on the 4th and was in my mailbox on the 7th! After pouring over reviews of Stages vs 4iiii I decided to go with this PM. The packaging and product itself are top notch, like opening an Apple iPhone. Installation was easy and took just minutes. No issues here with the app or connectivity. Everything synced well with my Wahoo Elemnt Roam. Calibration is easy and initiates right from my Wahoo computer. Just make sure the bike is perfectly still and the cranks are perfectly vertical. My biggest concern was accuracy so I ran multiple comparisons. One was the crank PM paired with my Wahoo Roam. The other was my Wahoo Kickr controlled by and paired with Zwift in ERG mode. I put all of the .fit files into DCR Analyzer and was pleased with the result. The power output of the crank is very spiky and of course cannot show left/right leg imbalances, but thus is the nature of left sided PMs. Across the entire plot though the averages matched up and I did not see any drift over time. Satisfied with that I began playing with the zero offset from the 4iiii app, which does work nicely in either direction, and luckily for me the zero setting on mine was the closest match to my Kickr’s output. All in all I could not be happier with the purchase and the product itself. I love using the metrics of power to pace and push my indoor training and now I’ve found a reliable way to take it on the road! Buy it and enjoy!

  3. Dennis Gately

    Receiving the crank arm with power meter in just 3 days was astonishing considering shipping & deliveries during the coronavirus. The crank arm was easy to install and I got the power meter up & running quickly. Pairing to my Garmin 820 took very little effort and I am now enjoying having my power data on display whenever I ride. Thanks ???? 4iiii & Power Meter City!

    Power meter was simple to install and configure on Garmin and Zwift, and delivery to a small island in the Atlantic was speedy!!

    Power meter works great and it was cheaper than what I saw other places online. Customer service was top as well. They even called to make sure I had selected the correct one and had it shipped out same day.

  7. Dayle James (verified owner)

    Couldn’t have been easier to sync with my wahoo and get on the road! Based on my experience with other power meters, this has been very accurate, great battery life, and handles well in weather. Now it’s on me to get my FTP up! Already looking at other 4iiii for my other bikes!

    • Power Meter City

      Hi there Dayle! Good choice for your power meter! We hope you continue to enjoy them and Yes, please let us know if there is anything else we can do!

  8. John kneebee (verified owner)

    I’ve been using the 4iiii precision r8000 for about a month now and have logged 2k Mike’s with it. It has been flawless! I did several comparisons to its power numbers benchmarking against my wahoo kickr and it has been +/- about 2 or 3 watts which for a single sided unit for $350 is great to me. Also it is very easy to install and to calibrate. If I had to say one criticism it’s that it would be nice if it had an auto zero feature because sometimes I have forgotten to do the zero offset calibration pre ride. Other than that it’s great I would highly reccomend also side note shipping was very fast 2 days which was awesome!

    • Power Meter City

      Hi John. Thanks for this awesome review! Keep up the good work! We hope you continue to enjoy them and we are here if there is anything else we can do!

    After watching countless YouTube videos and read many reviews, I decided the 4iiii was to be my entry into the power meter world. I made a great decision. Installing was easy, and syncing it to my Garmin edge 520 was trouble free. Synced the meter to the 4iiii app, and done. First ride I was getting readings all over the place. Then a friend suggested that I only use it for a 3 second power average. That was what I needed. I was looking for similar readings to what I see on my smart trainer, while using zwift. Really happy with my purchase.

    • Power Meter City

      Hi M. Thanks for dropping us a quick note on your 4iiii. Yes, 3 or 5-second power smoothing is definitely the way to go! We hope you continue to enjoy it and we are here if there is anything else we can do.

  10. R. Gannon (verified owner)

    Works perfectly! No issues with the unit and super easy to use. I’m using with Wahoo bolt and is seamlessly easy. Had an initial fitting issue with frame clearance but Josh was super helpful and I was up and running same day. I wish more businesses were this way.

    • Power Meter City

      Hi Rob. Thanks for the review on your 4iiii PRECISION R8000. I’m glad we could get you squared away and I hope you continue to enjoy it.
