Pioneer Expands Power Meter Kit Line-up to Include More Crankset Options with Campagnolo, Cannondale, FSA, and Shimano XTR and XT Compatibility

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#interbike2016INTERBIKE – Booth #15068 – Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.’s Cycle
Sports division today announced the expansion of its power meter kit
line-up to support popular crankset and crank arm brands* Campagnolo®,
Cannondale® and FSA®, as well as Shimano®
mountain bike models, XTR Trail and XT. The power meter kits are
designed to add Pioneer’s power meter to existing compatible cranks and
are available in three installation options: SGY-PM9100C
Dual Leg Power Meter Kit
for consumer supplied dual leg crankset, SGY-PMLTC
Power Meter Upgrade Kit
for consumer supplied left crank arm and SGY-PMRTC
Power Meter Upgrade Kit
for consumer supplied drive side crank. The
power meter kits can be installed on the cyclist’s existing crank or
crank arm to eliminate the need for investment in a second crank, making
riding with power easy and economical. Each kit is built using the
superior technology developed to meet the requirements of professional
athletes competing at the world tour level and offering the same force
direction data and advanced HDPower Metrics.


“We’ve listened to the cycling community and these new introductions
meet some of our most frequently encountered requests including carbon
and mountain bikes,” said Russ Johnston, executive vice president of
marketing and corporate communications for Pioneer Electronics (USA)
Inc. “Any cyclist passionate about improving his or her riding
performance, from weekend warriors to pros, will benefit with our power
meter. It provides instant feedback and knowledge about your cycling
capabilities. Every revolution is a revelation.”

The three power meter kits enable cyclists to ride with power in a few
easy steps. Once the desired power meter kit is purchased from an
authorized retailer, the corresponding crank, drive side crank or left
crank arm 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 turn-around of the consumer’s unit with the power meter.
Throughout the entire process, Pioneer keeps in constant communication
with the dealer.

HDPower Metrics

Access to Pioneer’s exclusive HDPower Metrics for enhanced power data
and analysis is available by combining the SGX-CA500 Cycle Computer with
any Pioneer power meter, dual or single leg. Adding Pioneer’s Cycle
Computer enables the rider to see comprehensive performance analysis and
highly detailed data, gathered from 12 points of measurement on the
Single Leg Power Meter and 24 points of measurement on the Dual Leg
Power Meter, and displayed graphically in real time on the display of
the Cycle Computer, including Force Vectors and Torque Vectors graphics
and Pedaling Efficiency.

Dual Leg Upgrade

Pioneer’s Single Leg Power Meter is adaptable and grows with the user.
As riders’ power needs develop, Pioneer offers an upgrade path to the
Dual Leg Power Meter system used by professionals. Transitioning from 12
points of measurement to 24 points of measurement, the Dual Leg Power
Meter system offers the most accurate total power measurement and
pedaling balance metrics critical to analyzing ride performance and
revealing opportunities for ride improvement. For cyclists who want to
upgrade to a Dual Leg Power Meter at a later date, Pioneer offers
compatible kits, the SGY-PMLTC left crank arm and SGY-PMRTC right drive
side upgrade kits. With 12 point and Dual Leg force measurement,
Pioneer’s HD Power Meters help uncover sources of pedaling imbalance,
identify bike fit, power loss and absorption issues, and are essential
tools for improving pedaling technique and efficiency.
