Accelerometer detects cadence without a magnet switch, making it easier to set up and use. The sensor collects multiple cadence data points throughout the pedal stroke to calculate pedaling angle and exact force position, providing data to help evaluate pedaling efficiency.
As professional coaches know, compared to simply measuring heart rate, which can easily be affected by environmental factors or personal physiological conditions, using a power meter is the best way to gain metrics for training: the data given by direct force shows the real output from every pedal stroke.
Giant believes, however, that it shouldn’t just be the pros that can benefit from this information, all riders can gain from using a power meter. For this reason, we introduce the all-new Power Pro, a dual sided power meter developed exclusively by Giant that provides accurate and stable power data for all.
Key Performance Factors
IPX7 waterproof and featuring an integrated magnetic rechargeable design, the Power Pro is fully protected from water or dust while riding. With built-in overcharge, over-discharge and short-circuit protection to extend battery life and ensure safe battery use, the Power Pro delivers up to 100 hours of riding on a single charge.
Multi-axis left and right crank arm sensors provide vital information including power in watts, pedal balance, force angle and cadence. With a Giant-exclusive algorithm and auto temperature calibration (ATC), the Power Pro can provide accurate and stable power data (±2 %) without being affected by surrounding environment.
Power Pro requires no magnet and is fully Bluetooth® Smart/ANT+ compatible: view pedaling performance and calibrate using any ANT+ capable head unit or through the Giant RideLink app. Additionally, although the LED indicator on the unit clearly displays the battery level, you can also view your remaining charge using the RideLink app, which will also remind you when it’s time to recharge.
