Powertap C1 Chainring Powermeter for $349 shipped

+9 Deal Score
3,006 Views
The powertap website has C1 Chainring powermeter for $349. These had been selling for $699. It may be they are coming out with a new model soon and trying to clear inventory but reviews are generally excellent and it's lowest true strain meter I've seen at this price point and measures power through entire stroke (not just one side).

Make sure these are compatible with your cranks by checking compatibility table on their website as they don't fit the new 4-bolt Shimano cranks (105, Ultegra, Dura-Ace).

FYI for those cranking through a lot of miles and intending to keep this for a fair amount of time...replacement chainrings are $200. Granted, good chainrings can last 15,000+ miles with proper care but that is a ridiculous price for just chainrings.

If your bike falls over, your pedal PM may be toast. I got a crank-based for that reason. There is also not much point with the L/R power distribution, either.

And given that pedal-based systems are $700+ I think that makes the decision pretty easy...

Great price for a crank based total power meter. Won't give true left/right balance but that is more of a curiosity than actually useful. The crank compatibility is unfortunately limited though.

If you can spend a little more I can recommend the power2max NG eco for its better crank compatibility.

Crank vs pedal I think is a matter of preference. The crank is more protected and battery life will be much longer. Pedals are more easily changed between bikes. Pedal is generally a couple hundred more expensive.
