The power meter mar­ket is get­ting jammed with some ex­cel­lent prod­ucts, mak­ing it harder to fig­ure out which is the best op­tion when it comes to mea­sur­ing your power out­put dur­ing train­ing and rac­ing. Pi­o­neer has quickly be­come a ma­jor player in the power meter field and, thanks to some price drops ear­lier this year and a new re­lease this spring, is likely to be­come an even more pop­u­lar op­tion for triath­letes of all lev­els.

Pi­o­neer’s new sin­gle leg power meter al­lows you to add power mea­sure­ment to com­pat­i­ble Shi­mano 11-speed Dura-ace or Ultegra left arm cranks for ev­ery length from 165 to 180 mm. It uses the same tech­nol­ogy used in the more ex­pen­sive Pi­o­neer mod­els and al­lows you to mea­sure power with­out hav­ing to buy an­other crank arm. Once in­stalled you will have ac­cess to Pi­o­neer’s Hd­power Met­rics which of­fer ex­ten­sive power data and anal­y­sis through one of Pi­o­neer’s cy­cle com­put­ers. It will work with any ANT+ com­puter, too. Pi­o­neer’s sys­tem dif­fer­en­ti­ates ex­actly where you’re ap­ply­ing power dur­ing each pedal stroke, so you can re­ally dial in ped­alling bal­ance and fig­ure out just how ef­fi­cient you’re ped­alling. You can do all that while you’re out on the road, too, mak­ing it easy to ad­just your tech­nique while you’re rid­ing.

If you de­cide that the 12 points of mea­sure­ment of­fered in the one-leg sys­tem isn’t enough for you, you can up­grade the sys­tem to a Dual Leg sys­tem, too.
