"Pioneer has worked on power meter products for over a decade to become the industry standard. We understand the challenges and we build power meters to exceed the performance standards of the world's hardest users, professional cycling teams and professional triathletes. Our goal is to provide the ultimate data analysis tools for riders," said Russ Johnston, executive vice president of marketing and corporate communications for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. "We are excited to expand our power meter offerings and are on track to be one of the first manufacturers to ship both dual leg and single leg power meters compatible with the highly-anticipated Shimano ULTEGRA R8000 HOLLOWTECH II crankset."

SGY-PM80 Series Dual Leg Power Meter Crankset

Pioneer's Dual Leg Power Meter is the most advanced dual leg power meter system on the market, going beyond the standard ANT+® power metrics by measuring force in all directions at 30 degree intervals, 24 times per rotation, helping the rider develop pedaling balance and minimize power loss. When the power meter is combined with Pioneer's SGX-CA500 GPS Cycle Computer, riders have access to HDPower Metrics for enhanced power data and analysis. The Cycle Computer with the Dual Leg Power Meter enables the rider to see comprehensive performance analysis and highly detailed data gathered from 24 points of measurement and displayed graphically in real-time on the display of the Cycle Computer, including Force Vectors and Torque Vectors graphics and Pedaling Efficiency.

The SGY-PM80 Series Dual Leg Power Meter adds only 62 grams of weight to the original ULTEGRA crank, making Pioneer's system one of the lightest crank-based meters. The power meter is also compatible with ANT+ devices, including ANT+ sport watches. Riders with ANT+ computers will be able to see all ANT+ standardized power metrics supported by that computer.

  • Chain ring configurations: 53/39, 52/36, 50/34

Power Meter Kits

Throughout the entire process, Pioneer keeps in constant communication with the dealer.
