The ROTOR INspider with Kapic Aluminum cranks for Standard and Boost frames
ROTOR INspider KAPIC Aluminum MTB Power Meter
The ROTOR INspider KAPIC Aluminum MTB Power Meter is the first of its kind – a spider-based power meter that can be used on virtually any bike! The INspider records data via four sets of opposing gauges. This results in a high degree of accuracy (+/- 1.0%) and also means the power meter can measure left and right leg power balance. The INspider also features ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART and has a USB-rechargeable battery with 200-hour battery life.
Key Product Details
This power meter fits 30 MM MTB bottom brackets and 110 BCD 4-bolt chainrings. See Compatibility tab for more information.
The ROTOR INspider power meter measures power at the spider and is therefore able to measure power from both legs.
Dual-leg power measurement, accurate to +/- 1.0%, 200 hours of battery life, fits standard and boost frames, works great with oval chainrings, rechargeable battery, left/right power balance, ANT+ and Bluetooth compatibility. See Specs tab for more information.

Chainrings: The power meter is compatible with ROTOR 110×4 Chainrings, which are available in round and oval and can be purchased on this page along with the power meter.
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.

Common Questions and Answers
Question: How do I determine what length my current cranks are so I can make sure I get the same size?
