Magene ROTOR ALDHU Carbon Road Power Meter Crankset
The Magene ROTOR ALDHU Carbon Road Power Meter Crankset combines the Magene P505 power meter with ROTOR ALDHU carbon arms to make a lightweight road power meter crankset. The Magene power meter measures power from both legs, is accurate to +/- 1.0% and uses a rechargeable battery with 200 hours of ride time. This power meter also features automatic calibration, and left and right leg power balance.
This power meter crankset uses ROTOR’s ALDHU Carbon crank arms. These crank arms are very lightweight, weighing 100 grams less than the ALDHU aluminum model. In addition, vertical and horizontal stiffness have been increased by 11% and 36%. This means these cranks have some of the best weight to stiffness ratio available. Additionally, the ALDHU Carbon crank arms come in a variety of crank lengths, allowing riders to match their perfect fit.

Professional Assembly (Optional)
We are happy to professionally assemble your power meter crankset if you select this option when ordering. This ensures your crankset is correctly built and saves you time. Professional assembly includes:
- Mount the power meter to the cranks and tighten to factory specifications
- Apply multi-purpose bicycle grease where necessary
- Install chainrings on the power meter (if chainrings are ordered)
Please note – while we tighten everything to factory specs, it is still your responsibility to routinely check your power meter crankset to make sure all bolts and nuts remain securely fastened.
Other Versions to Consider
Magene ROTOR ALDHU Aluminum Crankset: If you are looking for a more affordable or power meter crankset that uses aluminum crank arms, consider the Magene ROTOR ALDHU Road Power Meter Crankset. This crankset still uses the Magene P505 power meter, but is paired with ROTOR ALDHU aluminum crank arms. The aluminum arms are a bit heavier, but offer more durability than carbon crank arms. In addition, they come in both 24 mm and 30 mm spindle sizes.
Chainrings: The power fits both 110x4 BCD and 110x5 BCD chainrings. In many cases, you can use your existing chainrings assuming they use the same configuration as the power meter you order.
The 110 BCD 4-Bolt version is compatible with all Shimano 4-bolt chainrings, including Shimano 12-speed chainrings.
What is BCD?: BCD (bolt circle diameter) is simply the diameter of a circle that passes through the centers of the bolt holes in your chainring. The BCD is usually stamped right on the chainring as either 110 or 130. It is important to know what BCD your crankset is because assuming you want to use your existing chainrings on your new power meter, you need to order the correct BCD.
Bottom Bracket: This power meter fits 30 mm bottom brackets. If you currently have a 30 mm crankset on your bike, you should be able to re-use your existing bottom bracket. However, if you are changing spindle sizes, you will need to replace your bottom bracket.
