A Pioneer Pedaling Monitor System is my newest cycling gadget for the 2016 season. I’ve purchased a Pioneer Dura Ace 9000 Single Leg Power Meter model SGY-PM910HL and combined it with the Pioneer SGX-CA500 cycle computer (and thus Pioneer Cyclo Sphere – Analysis Software).
This Pioneer Pedaling Monitor System provides rich measurement of force and force-direction every 30 degrees (12 times per revolution) and calculates the HDpower metrics like pedaling efficiency. I can upgrade to a dual leg power meter system at a later point in time to match the professional cycling teams Giant Alpecin and Lotto Jumbo.
In the article I will describe the different components and briefly share my initial thoughts on each of them. I’ll probably write some more in depth articles on one or more of the components.
