power2max NGeco Shimano MTB Power Meter
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 Shimano MTB Power Meter 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 MTB power meter that provides dual-leg power measurement plus these other features at only $590!
Key Product Details
This power2max is compatible with Shimano MTB direct mount cranksets using a 1x chainring. This includes the M9100, MT900-1, M8100, M7100, M6100, MT610 and MT510. Regarding chainrings, it requires a 104 BCD 4-bolt MTB chainring (which is different than the direct mount chainrings found on many Shimano 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, 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 is a super solid option for Shimano MTB direct mount cranksets. Sure you have to change your chainring to a 104 BCD version, but this power2max measures power from both legs, is accurate and reliable. We believe the price also represents a good value for what you get. We highly recommend power2max power meters and use them on many of our own bikes.

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.

*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.
