I thought they launched these ones this February with the British team. They were supposed to become commercially available after that.

It uses accelerometers to measure cadence in a sport where training is (or at least should be) guided by cadence.

It does do some things that SRM doesn't (L/R power readings, user replaceable battery, shorter crank lengths) but it's only $200 less than the gold standard SRM.

If it came in at $1,000 or less...maybe. But, not for only $200 less than SRM. Just get SRM.

Yeah that accelerometer based cadence and the ISIS bottom bracket turned me off.

Been thinking of picking up a cheapo quarq or p2m and trying the bdop 110-144 converter. Not that I need another pm...
A couple people at elite nats had them.
