power2max NGeco Race Face Era MTB 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 Race Face Era MTB Power Meter Crankset comes fully-loaded. In addition, 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 power2max crankset is compatible with 30 mm bottom brackets. Regarding chainrings, it requires a 104 BCD 4-bolt MTB chainring (which is different than the direct mount chainrings found on many Race Face MTB cranksets). If you don’t already have a 104 BCD 4-bolt chainring, we offer several to choose from. See Compatibility tab for more information.
The power2max power meter measures power at the spider and is therefore able to measure power from both legs.
Dual-leg power measurement, carbon crank arms, 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:
This power meter is on the more expensive side since it ships with Race Face Era carbon crank arms. If it’s in your budget – we highly recommend it. power2max power meters measure power from both legs, are accurate and very reliable. In addition, these Race Face Era cranks are some of the strongest, stiffest and most durable MTB cranks on the market.
Options For This Power Meter
Chainline and BCD: This power meter is available in the following chainline options:
- 1X Boost | 104 BCD
- 1X Standard | 104 BCD
The 1X Boost configuration is recommended if your bike currently has a direct mount chainring with a 3 mm offset (which is what most bikes have). These bikes usually feature 52 mm chainlines and 148 mm rear hubs. Please note this Boost version can also fit Super Boost bikes where you are replacing a 3 mm direct mount chainring.
The 1X Standard configuration is used for bikes that have a direct mount chainring with a 6 mm offset (usually found on older bikes). These bikes usually feature 49 mm chainlines and 142 mm rear hubs.
Crank arms: This power meter comes with Race Face Era Carbon crank arms. You have the option of the following crank arm sizes:
- 165 mm | 170 mm | 175 mm
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.
Other Versions to Consider
p2m NGeco Race Face Next SL: We also sell the power2max NGeco Race Face Next SL MTB Power Meter Crankset. Instead of Era cranks, it comes with Next SL cranks, which are Race Face’s lightest cranks primarily intended for XC use.
Chainrings: This power meter requires a 104 BCD 4-bolt MTB chainring (which is different than the direct mount chainrings found on many Race Face MTB cranksets). If you don't already have a 4-bolt chainring, we offer several to choose from.
- MTB chainrings for power2max
- MTB chainrings for power2max Shimano (for Shimano 12-speed drivetrains)
The smallest chainring you can use on a power2max MTB power meter is a 30T round or 32T oval.
If you purchase a new chainring with your power meter, we will bolt it on to your power meter before shipping, which will make installation that much easier when you get it.
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.

*Power Balance Upgrade
The power2max NGeco measures power from both legs right out of the box. However, with power balance, you can 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.
