Pioneer Announces Dual Leg Power Meter for Shimano’s Flagship DURA-ACE R9100 HOLLOWTECH II Crankset

New Dual Leg Power Meter Offered As Both Pre-Installed Crankset and
Compatible with Power Meter Installation Kit for Consumer Supplied
Crankset

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Interbike2016INTERBIKE – Booth #15068 – Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.’s Cycle
Sports Division today introduces the new SGY-PM9100
Series Dual Leg Power Meter
compatible with the new flagship Shimano®
DURA-ACE® R9100 HOLLOWTECH® II crankset.* Pioneer
also offers cyclists the option to add its advanced dual leg power meter
to their existing Shimano DURA-ACE R9100 cranksets with the SGY-PM9100C
Power Meter Kit
. Also available with Shimano DURA-ACE 9000 and
ULTEGRA® 6800 cranks, Pioneer’s dual leg power meters help
riders uncover sources of pedaling imbalance and identify bike fit,
power loss and absorption issues, making them essential tools for
improving pedaling technique and efficiency.


“Our technology has been put to the test, meeting durability and
performance standards required by pro riders competing at the highest
levels and the most adverse real world conditions. For more than three
seasons, UCI WorldTour® pro teams have been riding with
Pioneer’s Dual Leg Power Meter system. The new Shimano DURA-ACE R9100
power meter is manufactured to the same specifications and will deliver
the same benefits and results,” said Russ Johnston, executive vice
president of marketing and corporate communications for Pioneer
Electronics (USA) Inc. “We are excited to expand our dual leg offerings
with the highly-anticipated Shimano DURA-ACE R9100 HOLLOWTECH II
crankset and are on track to be one of the first manufacturers to ship a
power meter with the flagship crankset.”

SGY-PM9100 Series Dual Leg Power Meter Crankset

Pioneer’s Dual Leg Power Meter is the most advanced dual leg power meter
system on the market, going beyond the standard ANT+ power metrics by
measuring force in all directions at 30 degree intervals, 24 times per
rotation, helping the rider develop pedaling balance and minimize power
loss. When the power meter is combined with Pioneer’s SGX-CA500 GPS
Cycle Computer, riders have access to HDPower Metrics for enhanced power
data and analysis. The Cycle Computer with the Dual Leg Power Meter
enables the rider to see comprehensive performance analysis and highly
detailed data gathered from 24 points of measurement and displayed
graphically in real-time on the display of the Cycle Computer, including
Force Vectors and Torque Vectors graphics and Pedaling Efficiency.

The SGY-PM9100 Series Dual Leg Power Meter adds only 62 grams of weight
to the original Shimano crank, making Pioneer’s system one of the
lightest crank-based meters. The power meter is also compatible with ANT+®
devices, including ANT+ sport watches. Riders with ANT+ computers will
be able to see all ANT+ standardized power metrics supported by that
computer.

  • Chain ring configurations: 53/39, 52/36, 50/34
  • Arm length (in millimeters): 165, 170, 172.5, 175

The SGY-PM9100 Series Dual Leg Power Meter will be available in fall

SGY-PM9100C Power Meter Kit

Pioneer’s SGY-PM9100C Power Meter Kit is an affordable dual leg power
meter solution for cyclists who already own compatible Shimano
cranksets. The SGY-PM9100C works with the new Shimano DURA-ACE R9100
crankset in addition to the DURA-ACE 9000 and ULTEGRA 6800 cranksets and
enables cyclists to ride with power in a few easy steps. Once the
SGY-PM9100C is purchased from an authorized retailer, the crankset is
put in the box and shipped directly to Pioneer’s installation center,
where the advanced power meter technology is installed. Pioneer has been
performing the ship, install, and return procedure for over two years
and the efficient system facilitates a quick turnaround of the cyclist’s
crankset with power meter. Throughout the entire process, Pioneer keeps
in constant communication with the dealer.
