PowerPod V5 Power Meter with PowerStroke Upgrade. The PowerPod, made by Velocomp, isn't your ordinary power meter. Unlike traditional direct force power meters that attach to your drivetrain crank, crank arm, pedals, etc.And measure your power directly, the Velocomp PowerPod V5 Power Meter attaches to your handlebars and measures your power through wind measurement - the forces that oppose the rider. This is called opposing force technology. The PowerPod uses an accelerometer, a wind pressure sensor, an elevation sensor and a speed sensor - all to measure power.
PowerPod's accuracy is on par with the more expensive, traditional type units. In addition, the benefits to this type of power meter are numerous.
The PowerPod power meter is much easier to move between bikes, there are no compatibility issues, it's simple to set up and you don't have to change out any of your prized components, and perhaps best of all, it's one of the most affordable power meters on the market. The PowerPod works on virtually all bikes and transmits power data via the ANT+ and BLE, and can therefore be used with any bicycle computer or watch.NOTE: Requires ANT+ speed or speed/cadence sensor. What's New with PowerPod V5! A new 24-bit wind sensor which provides better and higher resolution wind measurements. A new 24-bit barometric pressure sensor which provides more accurate elevation measurement. New Firmware 9 which uses 24-bit data to deliver better power measurement accuracy.
New Velocomp app for iOS/Android lets you set up as many as four bikes directly from your smartphone. The new app also includes a bike computer screen which displays current power, average power, speed, calories, distance, cadence, and also provides a graphical display of your power zone as a percentage of your FTP.
In addition to the free Isaac software application, PowerPod offers PowerStroke, 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 much 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.
His power meter mounts to 31.8 mm handlebars (or 22 mm if used with the TT mount), and therefore works with just about any bike. This includes road, track, CX and MTB. USB charging cable (attach to computer or USB charger).
