Power is the most significant metric to maximize performance
Today, professional cyclists, competitive road racers, triathletes, age groupers, club riders, event riders, and overall fitness enthusiasts use
heart rate, cadence, speed, and distance measurements to benchmark and monitor their cycling sessions. With a Pioneer power meter,
riders have a complete training tool that provides the clearest picture of their strength and stamina over time and distance. Knowing the
average wattage needed to compete, for example over an entire 100 mile club ride or a final sprint to the finish line, is the kind of critical
understanding a modern day cyclist needs for the most effective training.
Dual Leg / 12 points Analysis / Crank-arm power measurement
Most power meters available today are designed to only measure total power, a "mono" approach to obtaining
an individual’s power production capability. However, in order to achieve maximum performance, effort
and rhythm from both legs ("stereo") is extremely crucial. With dual strain gauges (one on each left/right crank
arm), Pioneer provides independent power data from both legs transmitted 12 times within each pedaling rotation.
And, to further differentiate itself from other power meters available today, Pioneer not only measures raw
power, but also other essential parameters necessary for improving performance including where in the pedal
rotation power is being applied, the torque and force angle of the pedal stroke, as well as power deficiency
within the stroke.
Real-Time, On-Bike, Graphical Power Analysis
While on the road, an abundance of ride data can be gathered but the key to excel is the ability to access and
interpret the information in real time when it matters. That’s where Pioneer’s innovation comes in. With Pioneer’s
power meter and cycle computer system valuable real-time data is always available. In perfect synch with the
rider, power location, direction, pedaling efficiency, and technique are constantly measured, analyzed, transmitted,
and displayed while on the bike via Pioneer’s exclusive "Force Vector" graphics, all illustrated on an extremely
bright 2.2-inch color LCD touch screen cyclocomputer.
Cyclo-Sphere – Robust and Effective Post Ride Cloud Based Analysis
With up to 199 performance parameters analyzed, Pioneer’s exclusive Cyclo-Sphere shows the passion a rider bringsto each cycling session by graphically showing a detailed analysis at any point of their ride. For that dedicated rider –it’s an entirely new riding experience! With Pioneer’s exclusive dual leg "Force Vector" recorded in synergy with route maps, scatter chartsand histogram, the Cyclo-Sphere is the ultimate training tool for the highly driven cyclist that strives for continuous improvement.
Pro Cycling Proven
Pioneer has proven its Pedaling Monitor and Cycle Computer system to perform even under the most gruelingenvironments. Elite athletes from the Belkin Pro Cycling Team utilized the Pioneer system in the most demandingraces in the world including the the 2013 Giro D’Italia and Tour de France. Wilco Kelderman, one of Belkin’s promisingyoung cyclists who recently won the Tour of Denmark said: "Pioneer’s power measurement system is the mostcomplete training tool I’ve ever used. By measuring left and right pedaling power separately, the system gives methe opportunity to increase my pedaling efficiency. On top of that, the products are lightweight, yet extremelyhigh quality."
Designed and Engineered by Pioneer
Pioneer continues to demonstrate its advanced engineering capabilities by adding another "industry first" to its rich 75 year history of innovationsin consumer electronics that includes the first in-car CD player, GPS system, Plasma Television, Laser Disc technology, Digital DJturntable and more. The Pioneer dual leg power meter and pedaling monitor system is breaking new ground in the cycling world by offeringthe ultimate way to improving performance and power production. "At Pioneer, we believe that when technology excels, there areno limits."
