Keo Power Pedal: pedal and power meter
The manufacturers Look and Polar present a pedal that measures the power and cadence of the pedaling and that will be on the market in the spring of 2011.
The Keo Power has all the benefits of Look's Keo pedal and Polar's wireless technology. Simplifying the data, it is a pedal that incorporates microchips on its inner shaft, a transmitter that is coupled to the crank next to the pedal, and a data receiver installed on the handlebar where these are reflected, which is at the same time a Complete heart rate monitor since the new pedal is used with three existing models: the CS600X, the CS600 and the CS500 from Polar.
The pedal allows to measure and reflect on the monitor of the heart rate monitor or on the computer later, the power, the cadence of the pedal stroke and the balance of force that is done with one or the other leg (only in the 600 versions of the heart rate monitor).
