Favero Assioma DUO-Shi Power Meter Spindles

The all new Favero Assioma DUO-Shi Power Meter Spindles allow Shimano users to enjoy one of the best-selling power meters on the market! The DUO-Shi Power Meter Spindles consist of two special pedal spindles that can be quickly and easily installed into your current Shimano SPD-SL pedal bodies. Therefore, you can experience everything the Assioma DUO has to offer while keeping the Shimano pedals you have grown to love. In addition, the DUO-Shi is compatible with Shimano PD-R8000, PD-R7000, PD-6800, PD-R550 and PD-R540 pedal bodies.

The Favero Assioma DUO-Shi’s feature all of the power meter technology found in the original DUO. This includes IAV power with +/- 1.0% accuracy, IAV cycling dynamics, Favero’s user friendly app and more. In addition, these DUO-Shi spindles are a dual-sided power meter with a power sensor located in each spindle. This means the power meter can show both left and right leg power, in addition to total power and cadence.


Important Note on Q Factor

The Favero Assioma DUO-Shi Power Meter have a Q Factor of 65 mm. This compares to 53-54 mm for most other pedals. This means each pedal will be approximately 11-12 mm further away from the bike than normal. Since Q Factor and bike set-up is subjective, each rider needs to determine if this is an ideal set-up for them.


Favero Assioma DUO-Shi Spindles Highlights

Dual-Sided Power

With a power sensor in each spindle, the Assioma DUO-Shi can measure true left and right power. While some power meters provide an estimated left/right power figure, only a few can provide true left/right data.

Easy to Install & Transfer

Once you have installed the spindles into your Shimano pedal bodies, the DUO-Shi installs on your bike just like a normal pedal. You can also move them from bike to bike in seconds!

ANT+ & Bluetooth SMART

With both ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART, the pedals will work with your favorite cycling computer, GPS watch, smart phone or tablet. The choice is yours!

Accurate with IAV Power

The DUO-Shi uses Favero’s IAV Power Technology. IAV results in accuracy of +/- 1.0%. It also allows the Assioma pedals to be used with oval chainrings without any impact to the accuracy of your data!

IAV Cycling Dynamics

Favero’s built-in gyroscope also allows you to measure cycling dynamics data such as IAV Power Phase and IAV Rider Position. With these advanced metrics, you can become a faster, stronger rider!


Using cutting-edge materials, the weight of each pedal is only 157 grams (PD-R8000). Therefore, this makes it one of the lightest power meter pedals available.


The Favero Assioma DUO-Shi uses a rechargeable lithium-ion battery which offers a 50-hour life. When the battery gets low, simply plug them in using the included charger, and you’re good to go again.

User Friendly App

The Assioma app allows you to update firmware, perform zero-offsets, check battery levels and more. Also, the “Compatibility with other apps” function ensures it works with other apps and training software.

Proved and Guaranteed

Each Assioma undergoes strict control tests (load, shock, fatigue, wear, water resistance, etc.) in order to ensure performance. It also comes with a full two-year warranty.

Favero IAV Power Technology

The Assioma uses Favero’s IAV (Instantaneous Angular Velocity) Power. Using special software and a built-in three-axis gyroscope, IAV takes into account the precise pedaling speed within each pedal stroke. This results in the Favero Assioma DUO-Shi having accuracy of +/- 1.0%. In addition, IAV allows you to use the Assioma pedals with oval chainrings without any impact to the accuracy of your data!


Favero IAV Cycling DynamicsFavero Assioma IAV Cycling Dynamics

Favero’s gyroscope also allows you to measure cycling dynamics data. IAV Power Phase displays the portion of your pedaling stroke in which torque is produced. In addition, your Power Phase Peak, in which maximum torque is produced, is also indicated. IAV Rider Position displays the portion of time you are in a seated vs. standing position. This allows you to analyze how a specific position can influence your performance. This data works with most Garmin bike computers including the Edge 1030, 830, 820, 530 and 520 Plus.
