Advice From Our Staff:
There are not a lot of power meter options for a Cannondale crankset and this power2max offers a great option. It measures power from both legs, is accurate and very reliable. We believe the price also represents a good value for what you get (even for this more expensive NG version). We highly recommend power2max power meters and use them on many of our own bikes.
Options For This Power Meter
BCD: The power2max is available in the following BCDs in order to fit your choice of chainring sizes:
- 110 5-Bolt | 130 5-Bolt
Lock Ring Tool: This page also allows you to purchase your power meter with the power2max Lock Ring Tool for Cannondale, which is required for installation. We recommend you order it unless you already own one. Note the tool is 50% off when you bundle it with a power meter on this page.
Other Versions to Consider
Cannondale NGeco Version: While the NG version you are viewing here features slightly better accuracy, a rechargeable battery, a longer warranty and some additional training metrics, we also sell the more affordable power2max NGeco Cannondale Road Power Meter version.
Cranksets: This power2max power meter is compatible with all models of Cannondale’s Hollowgram cranks: SI, SISL, and SISL2. It is also compatible with the Cannondale One crankset.
Chainrings: This power meter is compatible with 110 or 130 BCD 5-bolt chainrings based on the version ordered. In many cases, you can use your existing chainrings assuming they use the same configuration as the power meter you order.
Please note, some Cannondale cranksets come equipped 120 BCD chainrings or with direct mount chainrings (spiderings). In these cases, you will need to purchase a new 5-bolt chainring for use with your power meter. We recommend Praxis chainrings with this power meter (found on our Chainrings page).
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.

Common Questions and Answers
Question: Can I install the power2max on my Cannondale crankset with 120 BCD?
- This power meter comes in standard BCD sizes of either 110 or 130. If your Cannondale crankset uses the 120 BCD, you will need to purchase new 110 or 130 BCD chainrings to use with the power meter.
