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.

    I have been using this for Ironman training sessions, it is very accurate and robust. No dropouts which is very important. Easy to exchange between bikes which saves a lot of time.

    Comments:

    The pedals are very easy to use. They do not require certain torque settings or pods. The only drawback is the quality of battery caps. They cause drop outs occasionally due to poor electrical contact and are made of very soft metal which makes them prone to bending. After 18 months of usage, the battery caps are useless for me and cannot have the replacements shipped to Europe where I am currently residing and they cost way too much for a pair of small soft metal pieces.

      I appreciate the simplicity of the plug and play. Great data output to allow you to train and diagnose issues. Would highly recommend especially if you ride multiple bikes or like upgrading components on bikes.

      Power measurement is spot on, easy to switch between bikes.

      They are a little heavy. My main complaint is that the cleats are quite KEO compatible. It would be a lot nicer to have an easy swap between these and non-power pedals with the same shoes.

      P1 Pedals are the best fit for my situation

          Comments:

          When looking for a replacement for my now deceased 14 year old power meter, I decided the P1 pedals best fit my situation. I have two bikes (road and tri), and the tri bike has two sets of wheels (training and aero). This would have required 3 new wheels or a lot of hassle getting the correct hub and having a bike shop relace my existing wheels in order to use PowerTap hubs. I also looked at spider based power meters from several different companies, but in the end, decided against thosefor a couple reasons. When my old power meter on the tri bike kicked the bucket, due to monetary constraints from the better half, I couldn't purchase a new crankset with a spider based power meter built in. However, I found a really good deal for some 386EVO cranks (one carbon and one aluminum). So, I switched both bikes from square taper BBs, and have lightly used cranks on both bikes. Buying a spider based power meter would mean two power meters and two additional new cranksets. With the P1 Pedals, I can easily switch back and forth between bikes and use the recently purchased cranksets. Plus the two lightly used cranksets, two MegaEvo BBs, and the P1 Pedals came out cheaper than buying two GXP BBs, one aluminum Quarq, and one carbon Quarq or two MegaExo/MegaEvo BBs, one aluminum Power2Max, and one carbon Power2Max. Also with the P1 Pedals I get actual left and right power rather than estimated left/right power with the Quarq or Power2Max. So, the pedals just seemed to fit my need best. I got the PowerTap pedals over other pedal based power meters, because I don't have to use a torque wrench or mess with power pods. The only downside I've ran into so far is PowerTap's refusal to give Android users the same level of analytics as iOS users. Sure the Android Virtual Training app can be used to update firmware, but the analytics suck and can only be used for rides less than one hour. Only time will tell if I continue to be happy with the P1 Pedals, but for now I am.

          Do not buy if you are racing crits

          Went to 2.5 mm shorter cranks and still smack these pedals all the time in the faster crit races.

          Comments:

          Originally purchased in Feb 2016, I have had 2 units fail each within 6 months of use. First set, the firmware on the right pedal froze after a battery change. Second set, the right pedal gradually stopped reading power over the course of 2 weeks, at which point no power data was being measured from the right pedal at all. I would have liked a refund, but was told that a replacement pair was the only option. I now have a 3rd pair (both failed units replaced under warranty) which I have no faith in. What started out as a product with a lot of potential has turned into something I longer want to use.

              Extremely easy to use. I did have some difficulty pairing with my computer, but my LBS helped with this. While they are simple to use and versatile, the price tag is a big hurdle. I've found they work great with my smart trainer and bike computers.
