Quarq DFour DUB Power Meter
The Quarq DFour DUB Power Meter is designed for users of a Shimano crankset that want to step-up their game and start training with power! Featuring a 110 BCD, 4-bolt configuration, the DFour accepts all Shimano road chainrings. However, it is ideally suited for DURA-ACE 9100 rings specifically (for cosmetic purposes). This power meter benefits from over 10 years of Quarq’s experience in power meter technology. Therefore, it is accurate, durable and consistent in all conditions. It also has features such as MagicZero (automatically offsets) and 10K Temperature compensation (stays accurate regardless of temperature changes).
The DZero platform is now combined with SRAM’s new DUB technology. This means easy part choices, quality materials and a broader selection for bottom brackets and chainrings. The power meter runs for 200 hours on a single CR2032 battery and comes with a full 2-year warranty.
Key Product Details
This power meter fits SRAM RED, SRAM Force and Quarq DZero 8-bolt crank arms. It fits both the DUB or GXP versions. It ships with Quarq DZero crank arms unless otherwise specified. Regarding chainrings, it is designed for Shimano DURA-ACE 9100 chainrings. Shimano Ultegra R8000 and 105 R7000 rings also work, however they will not match the shape or color of the power meter as nicely. See Compatibility tab for more information.
The Quarq power meter measures power at the spider and is therefore able to measure power from both legs.
Dual-leg power measurement, accurate to +/- 1.5%, lightweight carbon crank arms, 200 hours of battery life, CR2032 user-replaceable battery, ANT+ and Bluetooth compatibility, auto-zero (automatic calibration). See Specs tab for more information.
Advice From Our Staff:
We are big fans of Quarq power meters. They benefit from close to 15 years of Quarq’s experience in power meter technology. It measures power from both legs, is accurate and reasonably priced. Please note, it requires the use of a SRAM DUB bottom bracket.
Options For This Power Meter
Crank arms: You can purchase the power meter with or without crank arms. Available crank arms are:
- 165 mm | 167.5 mm | 170 mm | 172.5 mm | 175 mm
DZero DUB – These are the crank arms that are pictured above and will ship with the power meter unless otherwise specified (they require a SRAM DUB bottom bracket). Unless you need GXP or higher-end SRAM RED crank arms, these are the ones we recommend.
Force GXP – If would like to use a GXP bottom bracket on your bike (Trek BB90 for example), the SRAM Force GXP Crank Arms will work perfectly. Please select ‘No crank arms’ on this page and then add Force GXP Crank Arms to your shopping cart.
RED DUB or GXP – If you are looking for the best SRAM has to offer, the SRAM RED Crank Arms are it (available in both DUB and GXP). The RED cranks are lighter (by about 140 grams) and stiffer than the DZero and Force arms. If you would like to order the power meter with SRAM RED cranks, please select ‘No crank arms’ on this page and then add the SRAM RED Crank Arms to your shopping cart.
Other Versions to Consider

Looks great, works great, never any complaints about any of my quarq products and the dub spindle seems to be lighter and more adaptable than the GXP power meters i have been using.
