power2max NGeco p2m Gran Fondo Power Meter Crankset
The NGeco is the newest model in the power2max line-up. With features such as dual leg power measurement, ANT+/Bluetooth SMART compatibility and left/right power balance, the power2max NGeco p2m Gran Fondo Power Meter Crankset comes fully-loaded. The NGeco is accurate to +/- 2.0% in all environmental conditions and is easy to use with features such as auto-zero and accelerometer-based cadence measurement. In fact, there is no other power meter that provides dual-leg power measurement plus these other features at this price point!
Key Product Details
This power meter fits 24 MM bottom brackets and 110 BCD 5-bolt, 130 BCD 5-bolt or 110 BCD 4-bolt chainrings based on the version ordered. See Compatibility tab for more information.
For Shimano Users:
If you currently have a Shimano road crankset on your bike, this power meter is a direct replacement. If you select one of the 24MM ALDHU crank sizes, it will come with the same spindle size as your current Shimano crankset and will fit your bottom bracket without any changes. In addition, if you select the 110 4-Bolt BCD option, you can also use your current Shimano chainrings on it. This makes replacing your Shimano crankset very simple and easy.
The power2max power meter measures power at the spider and is therefore able to measure power from both legs.
Dual-leg power measurement, accurate to +/- 2.0%, 300-400 hours of battery life, CR2450 user-replaceable battery, left/right power balance with system upgrade, ANT+ and Bluetooth compatibility, auto-zero (automatic calibration). See Specs tab for more information.
Advice From Our Staff:
We highly recommend power2max power meters and use them on many of our own bikes. They measure power from both legs, are accurate and very reliable. We also believe the price represents a good value for what you get.
Options For This Power Meter
BCD: This power meter is available in the following BCDs in order to fit your choice of chainring sizes:
- 110 5-Bolt | 130 5-Bolt | 110 4-Bolt
Crank arms: You can get this crankset in the following crank arm lengths:
- 165 mm | 170 mm | 172.5 mm | 175 mm
Please note – this power meter ships with a Black decal. Please let us know if you would like us to include a different color instead (Red, Blue, White, Green).
Other Versions to Consider
Aluminum NGeco Version: We also have the power2max NGeco ROTOR ALDHU Road Power Meter Crankset which features ROTOR aluminum crank arms. This version is more expensive, but the aluminum crank arms are nicer (about 40 grams lighter, nicer finish and stiffer).
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)
- Apply power2max decal
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.
Chainrings: The power fits 110 BCD 5-bolt, 130 BCD 5-bolt or 110 BCD 4-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.
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 uses a 24 mm Shimano road spindle and must be used with a 24 mm Shimano bottom bracket.
Tip - If you already have a Shimano crankset on your bike, then this power meter will fit your bottom bracket perfectly as all Shimano cranksets use a 24 mm spindle.

*Power Balance Upgrade
The power2max NGeco measures power from both legs right out of the box. However, with power balance, you are able to see how much power each leg is generating individually. If this information is important to you, you can choose to upgrade the power meter at any time. (Please note, you can also purchase the NG version of the power2max which comes with this feature unlocked, along with a rechargeable battery and a longer 5-year warranty.)
You can upgrade your NGeco using the power2max app once you receive the power meter. The cost to upgrade is 50 euros.
