Unique Features Of Favero Assioma Power Meter Pedals.

Recommended Posts

SickBiker

10.000 kilometers, indoor and outdoor workouts, MTB races - this is how I've been testing the Favero Assioma Duo power meter pedals for the last two seasons. Let me share with you, what are my thoughts on this training measuring device.

What you get for the money...

$499 for Favero Assioma Uno, or $749 for the double - sided Assioma Duo, make these pedals a great deal on the market in 2019. Remember, that you are not getting here an additional power measuring device to your bike, but a fully functional road clipless pedals. Another good thing is, that you can always upgrade from Uno to Duo :)

Unique, moisture proof design.

Favero Assioma pedals are not only waterproof. The bi - component resin block makes the power sensor even moisture proof and improves the shock resistance to. I did some rides on the pouring rain on my Enduro e-bike (yes - road power meter on an Enduro machine), one day grinding through the water up to the wheels axles, in the storm. No issues with the power meter, no problems with the pedals bearing either. Great quality! During my MTB trainings I did hit some rocks with the power meter unit, with NO effect on the data readings and accuracy (checking with an accurate Elite Drivo II trainer).

Unique, instantaneous power measurement.

Guys, this is no add. If you have the right bike computer and the software, you can take advantage of another, unique feature of the Assioma power meter - the IAV Power System. Many power meter use the average angular velocity (AVG), but the Assioma pedals use the instantaneous angular velocity (real time). It gives you an in - depth view of how your both legs (and a whole body actually) produce the power, throughout the whole pedalling circle. They work for the oval chainrings to, so you can use them to find out, whether or not you should be using the oval ones, by comparing the power data. This is of course an advanced piece of data, but you can share it with a professional bike fitter, with great results.

Lightweight, durable, accurate.

These pedals are made with great accuracy, as they tip the scale exactly to 150 grams for each pedal. I already have the servicing kit, which includes a spare pedal body and the bearings. Though there was no need for me to replace the ones I've been testing. I'm going to let them wear down completely and will update you, when they come to die ;) The pedals show you an accurate power data in all weather conditions, thanks to their automatic temperature compensation, designed for the range of the temperatures well beyond normal. Add to it a really low stack and you get everything you need for an advanced cycling training.

Plug and play toy.

It takes about two minutes for me, to swap the pedals between different bikes. The only thing I do after that, is to calibrate them on my Sigma or Garmin bike computer. That's it! The battery is built-in and last for a loooong time. You can always check the battery level, using an app, but I simply let them discharge completely (hate to think about charging everything all the time), which means, that I lose a power data for every 40th workout, or so... I only check the battery level before an important race or an FTP test. 

Disadvantages?

Yes, one - no MTB version so far. I was told by the manufacturer, that the MTB version would have to be more shock resistant. I'm sure they are working on the MTB pedals, because in mu opinion - the ones I have are durable enough for my Cross Country races. I know, it's not very often, when I don't complain about ANYTHING in the tested products, but in this case, even the price was very well set by Favero company, so this is definitely ONE OF THE BEST bicycle products I ever tried.
