Pioneer’s robust system is the first ever to achieve on-bike, real time, dual-leg pedaling power measurements and analysis, graphically illustrating left and right power output, pedaling stroke efficiency, power loss, force vector analysis, and torque, in addition to cadence, heart rate, GPS positioning, speed, distance, elevation gain/loss, barometric pressure, ambient temperature, and more. At the heart of the system are two proprietary strain gauge monitors developed by Pioneer that provide the highest power recording rate (on both legs) using 12 different points (every 30 degrees) on a single 360 degree pedaling stroke. The dynamic information from the monitors is transmitted via a special ANT+™ stream so it can be graphically illustrated in real time on Pioneer’s customizable high-resolution cyclocomputer. Within one complete left/right stroke, up to 199 data points of the rider’s performance parameters are analyzed by the system, which can be illustrated in detail on Pioneer’s online service, Cyclo-Sphere.
“For the first time, riders will see a complete on-bike performance analysis of their entire pedaling stroke showing left and right leg pedaling efficiency and pedaling loss so they can instantly make changes to their riding technique in real time,” said
