Pioneer Shimano Ultegra R8000 Dual-Sided Crankset
The Pioneer Shimano Ultegra R8000 Dual-Sided Crankset is Pioneer’s newest crankset-based power meter. Featuring Pioneer’s 12-point force measurement for high accuracy and advanced metrics, this power meter can measure pedaling forces every 30 degrees, for 12 points of measurement per pedal revolution. This level of measurement is unique to Pioneer power meters. When paired with a Pioneer Cycle Computer, you get access to Pioneer’s HDPower Metrics including Force Vector analysis, Torque Vector and Pedaling Efficiency power metrics.
In addition, with a power sensor on both the left and right crank arms, the power meter can measure independent left and right leg power. This is a very helpful feature for advance training metrics.
The Pioneer R8000 Power Meter runs off two easy to change CR2032 batteries and gets approximately 180 hours of battery life. The unit is lightweight, adding only 62 grams to the weight of the crankset and it is both IPX6 and IPX7 water resistance certified. The Pioneer R8000 Power Meter is ANT+ compatible and can be used with the Pioneer Cycle Computer or your favorite ANT+ head unit.
