Description

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.

Just waiting to get another pair!

Pros:
Versatile, Accurate & Responsive, Easy to Use
Cons:
Needs PowerTap cleats - doesn't fit Shimano
Best Uses:
Incredible product. Super easy to (un)install. Love the accuracy and responsiveness of the pedals. Only downside is needing to use PowerTap cleats, which don't fit Shimano pedals. However, for the quality and value, this one con is very minor.

Power Meter on a Spin Bike

Pros:
Versatile, Easy to Use
Cons:
Best Uses:
Road Bikes, Long Rides
These pedals have been a game changer for me. I was reluctant to get a power meter, but was finally sold on the idea when I saw these advertised. They are absolutely amazing! I never have to think about them, just spin them to wake them up, calibrate and go. I use them with a LeMond RevMaster Pro Spin Bike. Love them with Zwift.

Great!

Pros:
Versatile, Easy to Use
Cons:
Don't like 6 degree float cleats.
Best Uses:
Commuting, Road Bikes, Long Rides
Overall satisfied with the pedals. 6 degree float clips aren't for me. Wish zero degree shipped with the pedals or that the option was given at purchase. Sucks to immediately have to go and buy something after spending so much. Did have a problem with right pedal dropping connectivity. Reinstalled the battery cap and that seems to have solved it.

Easy to Install, Easy to Setup, Easy to Use

Pros:
Versatile, Easy to Use, Lightweight
Cons:
Best Uses:
Road Bikes
The PowerTap P1 Pedals were a simple setup, just remove your old pedal and install the PowerTap P1 Pedals. Then install the cleats on your bike shoes. Most people could do themselves with some hex wrenches. But if your hesitant, it would a no brainer for the local bike shop. The PowerTap P1 Pedals paired with issues to my computer, (Rouvy and Trainer Road programs) by simply going to the bike setup section of each program and having them connect with the P1 Pedals. They also connected without any issues to my Garmin 1000 bike computer. Once connected I had zero problems with drop outs or lost connection on either indoor trainer rides or my outdoor rides. Calibration before rides (when I didn't forget to do it) was simple. There's tons of data that honestly I'm still learning how to use. I had replaced my previous single leg power meter. Now I know that I'm slightly unbalance in the power between my left and right leg, 53% - 47%. And the power meter really helps me target the effort in my workouts in a way that I couldn't do before. Only one minor complain, the battery caps is made of material that too soft and easy to strip. If you get these, you need to be careful removing and especially installing the caps. The PowerTap P1 Pedals are a great and easy to install, easy to use power meter that gives you lots of reliable power readings with minimal fuss.

Do not buy!

Pros:
Easy to Use, Versatile
Cons:
Bulky, Poor Quality, Horrible pedal clearance
Best Uses:
Triathlon/TT with no corners!
13 mm lower than my dura ace pedals! Not 2.5 mm as mentioned elsewhere. Terrible design. Do not buy unless you do not plan on cornering at high speeds.

P1 Power

Pros:
Easy to Use, Durable, Versatile, Reliable
Cons:
Best Uses:

These pedals are easy to install and use, providing power data on different bikes with a quick swap of pedals. If you can measure it, you can improve it! Let the improvements begin!
