Velocomp PowerPod v4 ANT+/BLE Power Meter. The PowerPod, made by Velocomp, isnt your ordinary power meter. Unlike more traditional power meters that attach to your drivetrain (crank, crank arm or hubs) or pedals and measure your power using strain gauges, the PowerPod power meter attaches to your handlebars and measures your power through wind measurement. More specifically, the PowerPod uses an accelerometer, a wind pressure sensor, an elevation sensor and a speed sensor all to measure your power. PowerPods accuracy is on par with the more expensive, traditional type power meters.
In addition, the benefits to this type of power meter are numerous. Compared to a more traditional power meter, the PowerPod power meter is much easier to move between bikes, there are no compatibility issues, its simple to set up, you dont have to change out any of your prized components, and perhaps best of all, its one of the most affordable power meters on the market. The PowerPod works on road bikes and mountain bikes and transmits power data via both the ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART wireless protocols. PowerStroke is an upgraded software package. Many of you are probably familiar with left/right power measurement, a feature many direct force power meter manufacturers are adding to their meters.
Well, PowerStroke takes this analysis further! In addition to analyzing left/right data, PowerStroke allows you to analyze your entire pedal stroke in great detail. Specifically, PowerStroke can analyze which areas of the pedal stroke your power comes from, provide measurement of front-to-back, side-to-side, and left/right wobble motion of the bicycle and determine things such as Wasted Watts, Wasted Motion, and Wasted Time caused by wobbling. PowerStroke records data at 16 times per second and at each 10 degrees of a pedal stroke.
With this data, you can experiment with changes to your pedal motion, bike position and bike fit in order to improve your riding efficiency and therefore your power and speed. Since the PowerPod simply attaches to your handlebars, the power meter can be quickly and easily transferred from bike to bike.
Installation takes just a few minutes and doesnt require any special tools or knowledge. The PowerPod power meter is one of the most affordable power meters on the market.The PowerPod weighs just 32 grams. To put it in perspective, this is about the weight of 32, average size paperclips. The PowerPod plus the mount weighs 65 grams. Since the power meter attaches to the handlebars, compatibility is a non-factor. You dont have to worry about changing out any of your favorite components.
In addition, it will work on road bikes, cross bikes and mountain bikes. The PowerPod is compatible with any bike that has round, 31.8 mm handlebars. PowerPod Power Meter with PowerStroke. USB charging cable (attach to computer or USB charger).
