First introduced in 2015, the PowerTap P1 Pedals quickly became one of the most popular power meters available. Featuring 8 strain gauges per pedal, the P1s provide true left/right power measurement with a power sensor located in each pedal. The P1s feature a forged aluminum pedal body and use proprietary, 3-bolt Keo-style cleats. In addition, since the P1 Pedals transmit data via ANT+ as well as Bluetooth SMART, you have the choice of using a traditional head unit or a smartphone. The P1 Pedals weigh 199 grams each, run off of AAA batteries and provide approximately 60 hours of run time. As a bonus, this PowerTap power meter is one of a select few power meters that work with oval chainrings, in case you want to go that route at any point.
Many will say that the P1 Pedals are the best pedal-based power meter on the market today. The pedals are accurate, durable, easy to install and are backed by a company that has been producing power meters for over 15 years.
PowerTap P1 Pedal Highlights
True Left/Right Power Data
The P1 Pedals have a power sensor in each pedal, allowing it to measure true left and right power. This opens the possibility for a new set of pedaling metrics previously unavailable.
Installing the P1s is as easy as installing a normal set of pedals. Grab a hex wrench and bolt them on! This also makes it easy to move this PowerTap power meter from bike to bike.
ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART
The P1s transmit data via ANT+ as well as Bluetooth SMART, which means you have the choice of using a traditional head unit or a smartphone.
The P1s hold all of the electronics and batteries inside the pedal unit itself which makes for a clean look.
PowerTap went to great lengths to make sure the P1s are durable, and their efforts paid off. The P1s are engineered to take everything you can throw at them!
Accurate, Reliable, Consistent
Perhaps the biggest selling point of the P1s is that it just works. Accurate, reliable and consistent data – every day, every ride.
PowerTap P1 Pedal Options
You can purchase either the dual-sided PowerTap P1 Pedal or the single-sided PowerTap P1S Pedal.
PowerTap Power Meter Cleat Compatibility
The P1 uses cleats that are very similar to – but not exactly the same as – LOOK Keo cleats. LOOK Keo cleats will work, but the engagement within the pedal isn’t perfect. So for best results, you should use the cleats that come with your PowerTap P1 Pedals.
