The PowerPod Lite: The most affordable power meter available
Like the original PowerPod, the new PowerPod Lite Power Meter makes training with power easy and affordable. Using opposing force technology, the PowerPod attaches to your handlebars and measures your power by calculation the forces that oppose the rider. Specifically, the PowerPod uses an accelerometer, a wind pressure sensor, an elevation sensor and a speed sensor – all to measure power.
The benefits to this type of power meter are several. Compared to a more traditional power meter, the PowerPod is easy to move between bikes, doesn’t have any compatibility issues, is simple to set up and you don’t have to change out any of your favorite components. However best yet, at only $199, the PowerPod Lite is the most affordable power meter available.
NOTE: Requires ANT+ speed or speed/cadence sensor.
The PowerPod Lite works just like its big brother. Accuracy, consistency and compatibility remains the same. However it differs from the original PowerPod (priced at $299 for the ANT+ version and $325 for the dual ANT+/BLE version) in the following ways:
If you decide you would like any of the features listed above, you can always upgrade your PowerPod Lite at any time to a full blown PowerPod for an additional $125.
Note that you save $10 if you bundle the PowerPod with a Garmin mount.
The PowerPod is compatible with any bike that has round, 31.8 mm handlebars.
