ROTOR INpower DM Road Power Meter

As with the previous generation INpower, the ROTOR INpower DM Road Power Meter measures left leg power using two sets of opposing strain gauges in the axle. The strain gauges are able to measure power, cadence, torque effectiveness and pedal smoothness. In addition, because all of the electronics are housed inside the water-proof, sealed axle, the power meter is super durable and can withstand the harshest conditions.

However unlike the previous generation power meter, the new INpower DM uses ROTOR’s Direct Mount Chainrings. The Direct Mount rings are machined from a solid block of 7075 aluminum which makes them lighter and stronger than the standard 2x chainring set-up. The ROTOR INpower DM has ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART, is powered by a AA battery with 300-hour battery life and features +/- 1.0% accuracy.


Key Product Details


This power meter fits 30 MM road bottom brackets and is compatible with ROTOR Direct Mount Chainrings. See Compatibility tab for more information.

Power Measurement:

This ROTOR power meter measures left leg power and doubles the value to account for both legs (assumes both legs are generating the same force).

Key Features:

Works with ROTOR direct mount chainrings (light and stiff), accurate to within +/- 1.0%, 300 hours of battery life, uses AA batteries, ANT+ and Bluetooth compatible, 2-year warranty. See Specs tab for more information.

Advice From Our Staff:

The advantages to this power meter are it’s relatively affordable (as far as ROTOR power meters go), the aluminum crank arms are light and stiff, the ROTOR direct mount chainrings further increase stiffness and this power meter makes it easy to run oval rings. The drawback is that it only measures left leg power, whereas most power meter cranksets measure power from both legs.


Options For This Power Meter

The ROTOR INpower DM Power Meter is available in the following options:

  • Crank arm lengths: 165 mm | 170 mm | 172.5 mm | 175 mm
  • Chainring size: 53/39 | 52/36 | 50/34 | 50/37 AXS | 48/35 AXS | No Chainrings (if you already own them)
  • Chainring shape: Round | Oval | No Chainrings (if you already own them)


Other Versions to Consider

2INpower Version: While the INpower you are viewing on this page measures power from just the left leg, we also have the ROTOR 2INpower DM Road Power Meter. This is a more expensive version however it measures power from both legs.


Chainrings: The ROTOR INpower DM is compatible with ROTOR Direct Mount Chainrings as listed on this page. They are designed to work with 9-, 10-, 11-, 12-, and 13-speed groupsets.

You will see that you have the option of ROTOR Direct Mount (DM) 1-piece rings or ROTOR 110x4 2-piece rings. Most customers opt for the 1-piece rings as they are lighter and stiffer, however the 2-piece rings allow you to more easily change chairing sizes in the future, should that need arise.

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 chaining spindle sizes, you will need to replace your bottom bracket.
