PowerTap P1 Pedals

These aren't ordinary pedals. The P1 pedal is a simple, intelligent and uncompromising design that provides the same proven PowerTap accuracy and reliability. The simple one-piece design easily mounts to any crank and does not require calibration nor installation angle setting, providing a true “plug-and-play” experience. The P1 also features dual band ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART for compatibility with a multitude of head units and smart devices. Plus, the independent measurement opens the possibility for a new set of pedaling metrics previously unavailable to help give you the ultimate competitive edge.

    Comments:

    I have three bikes and a trainer. The P1s switch between them all in seconds, are consistent, and take a battering but never miss a beat. The best thing is that I know my power readings are the same across all my rides, and therefore comparisons and consistency are easy. No calibration needed when changing bikes, but an allen key and it is done. Nice.

    Comments:

    I have had these pedals for a year now and absolutely love them---they are accurate and I absolutely love the portability...I travel a lot and simply throw them in my suitcase with my Garmin bike computer and I can record every ride regardless of where I go...they are a little heavier than some of the other options but nothing currently on the market can match the ease and convenience and accuracy of the P1 Pedals.

    Solid Power Reporting

    Comments:

    I love the easy of calibration, use and accurate power reporting. I dislike the cleats a bit compared to Shimano SPD-SL. These cleats are less stable when walking and are a bit more finicky for pedal entry. Other than that, the pedals perform great and the power data is outstanding.

    Comments:

    Easy to install and use. Amazing how seeing power becomes motivational and is more meaningful than simply speed and heart rate. No I have a true sense of how hard I am working the consequence is my rides are are faster. The only negative is related to working with Edge 1000, I suspect it is a Garmin issue. On starting a ride if the pedals are active before powering the Garmin, then the Garmin crashes. The fix is to start the Garmin then the pedals. I wish there was a way to see power phase on the Garmin live in a field rather then on the iPhone. There is a Garmin app that can do this but is intermittent. Recording the ride with the Powertap mobile app is the best way to review the information post ride

    Comments:

    I use these pedals all the time on my road bike. They are super easy to install as you don´t have to fiddle with a torque wrench. Signal picks up easily on any computer I have tried (Garmin, Wahoo, Powertap) and I have had no issues at all. When it is time for TT-races I just switch the pedals over to my TT-bike. It is done in a few minutes, and they work just as well there.

      The P1 pedals were the easiest to install, fast to remove and swap to another bike and provide accurate and consistent power numbers. The sync process is simple, the pedals have an iOS app for the iPhone and calibration is a breeze. The only downside I have seen so far is while using inside and if you sweat a lot there is one tiny screw on the pedal which has rust on it from the sweat. Other than that extremely minor blemish these pedals have been gold!

      Comments:

      The PowerTap P1 pedals are my first power meters, and I'm glad I now have them. Installation is super easy. Power accuracy is good. Communication through ANT+ with the Garmin works well, and connecting to my iPhone through Bluetooth is there as well when I'm inside. They're pretty bulky, and I've knocked the bottom once when pedaling through a turn at a lean angle you wouldn't expect from normal pedal, so I'm cognizant to not do that again. They're built solidly and are quite heavy as a result. I do notice the weight when moving the bike around the house, but I suppose less so on the road. The benefits of the power knowledge and easy swapability outweigh the weight for me.

      Comments:

      I was told that a PM was the best thing to add to my cycling. I ride road and do triathlons. I did my due diligence of research before making a purchase. I really wanted to have the ability to have a PM on both my bikes without breaking the bank. It was either pedals or a hub. I liked the idea of having individual feedback from the pedals as to which leg is working more so, hub was not an option. These pedals install easily, update via the app without pain, transfer between bikes in just a few minutes and have helped my riding tremendously. I really no longer look at how fast I'm going, but rather how many watts am I putting out. I'm not sure about battery like as of yet, the batteries they came with are still working just fine. I did need to raise my saddle just a bit as these pedals stack just a little taller. Other than that, I think I put in about 15 minutes installing them the first time. Felt like I did something wrong because I was done and ready to ride!
