A crank-based power meter with an easy-to-install design. The C1 Chainring is made to accept a wide-range of standard alloy and carbon cranks without modification.
Already a well-known name in hub-based power meters, Wisconsin-based PowerTap is determined to take the lead in the power market.
The PowerTap C1 Chainring Power Meter is a full-featured, crank-based power meter that measures total power and provides left/right balance based on position within your pedal stroke. The C1 mounts to existing hardware on the bike, The one-piece chainring design imparts added stiffness for shifting no matter the terrain.
Most chainring power meters require cyclists to replace or modify their (often expensive) cranks with ones designed specifically for that meter. This adds unnecessary product cost or requires cyclists to alter the stiffness and performance of their personal cranks to fit their chosen meter. These were deemed unacceptable solutions for Powertap’s offering.
i3 collaborated with PowerTap to develop a ground-breaking product architecture that would accept a wide-range of standard alloy and carbon cranks without modification.
The C1 Chainring allows a cyclist to monitor the power input from both legs with Bluetooth® Wireless Technology to their cycling computers. i3 ensured a cohesive brand presence by utilizing high-end material finishes, a subtle color scheme and unique branding elements in the design.
