Product Details

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.

    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.

    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.

            Just started using the P1 pedals and I've been impressed. I love the fact that they were easy to install and to sinc (I have a Garmin Edge 520). Also they are great as easy to switch between bikes, if needed, or they stay constant with your bike when you perhaps switch between training and race wheels. Love the data provided to see the % difference between left and right sides. Would be great if they were made to fit with the standard cleats, rather than having to have specific ones, but it's hardly a big issue and easy enough to purchase the cleats when they need replacing.

                I have used the P1-pedals together with a hub power meter (powertap) in my velomobile Milan SL in order to measure the energy-consumption of the drivetrain. It was about 12 % of the total power, due to longer chain, chain enclosing and additional brackets with normaly powered 100 W and 90 rpm. Very interesting the comparision of these datasets of both powermeters, e.g. by seeing the phase of the power etc. ... ;-)

                  I've been riding with the Powertap P1's for a year no wand they have performed flawlessly. As a pedal, they are fine: easy to clip into, easy to get out off, smooth running – nothing special, except that the stack height is a bit more than with most pedals. I adjusted my saddle height by about 2-3mm. The cleats are almost the same as Keo's but not quite, and Keo cleats may not sit securely. The P1 cleats are made by Wellgo and easy to find online (type RC-7B). But obviously the power meter functionality is much more important! Power signal is nicely constant without spikes or drop-outs, and (comparing it to the read-out of my Tacx Neo or the Stages of my friends) also bang-on accurate. Left-to-right balance is also consistent. Battery life is pretty good – easily 40-50hrs, probably more (but at some point I just change the batteries, to be on the safe side). Batteries are easy to change too, although the aluminum battery compartment cover is easy to damage with the ridiculously large allen key it requires. A little plastic allen tool or so coming with the pedals would be better. By far the biggest plus of this system over any other power meter is the ease of set-up and changing it from bike to bike, as I tend to do on short holidays or weekend trips when I rent a bike. Throw them in the bag, mount them with a simple allen key, calibrate, and that's it, just as simple as mounting normal pedals really. Apart from that, this is about the only system that works without problems on my carbon S-Works cranks. The main gripe I have is that the Powertap app to update firmware, adjust settings etc. is still only available on iOs and not for Android. In a household without anything Apple (are we the only one?) that sucks, and it is about time Powertap releases an Android app. Other than the Powertap app, the P1's have been a great training tool. I was hesitant to spend such an amount of money on them but now I feel it is probably the best equipment investment I ever made!

                    I bought these to easily switch powermeters between bikes. At first I was worried that they wouldn't hold up (I do more than 1000km per month), but after almost a year I'm happy to say they're still going strong! They easily switch between bikes, are accurate, and give a wealth of information that is very helpful. Definitely recommend!
