Nearly every professional cyclist uses a powermeter and they can transform your road cycling training and race performance. But, to many opf us, how a cycling powermeter is made is a bit of a mystery. While we might understand training measures like watts, FTP and more, we're probably not sure where the strain gauges that provide the data for these measurements are.
We were lucky enough to team up with our CycleOps – our powermeter partner – for a tour of their Madison, Wisconsin facility where we found out how their P1 pedal powermeter is made.
