LOOK AND POLAR PRESENT: The first global system for measuring pedal power
POLAR, leader and pioneer in sports technology based on heart rate, and LOOK, leader and inventor of the first automatic pedal, have joined forces to present the world's first pedal power measurement system. Along with compatible POLAR cycling computers, the POLAR LOOK Kéo Power pedals are a "must-have" for all ambitious cyclists who want to reach their full potential.
The new and revolutionary Kéo Power pedals from POLAR and LOOK measure the cycling power with maximum precision. The system consists of the lightweight POLAR P5 power transmitters and the POLAR LOOK Kéo Power pedals. It should be noted, in addition to its lightness, the ease of assembly and the practicality of changing them from one bicycle to another.
The eight sensors built into each pedal guarantee maximum precision (a margin of error of +/- 2%). The two wireless power sensors transmit data to compatible POLAR cycling computers: CS600X, CS600, CS500 + and CS500. The user himself can change the batteries of the transmitters easily and safely.
The POLAR LOOK Kéo Power accurately measures the power of the two pedals separately (left / right) in watts. The measurement of the left / right balance in percentage helps the cyclist to improve his cyclist technique, correcting possible inefficiencies in his pedaling and decompensation or also helping in the recovery three an injury.
The system calibrates itself before each session allowing a very precise measurement of power. In addition to providing power data, the POLAR LOOK Kéo Power also measures current and average cadence in rpm, helping to find an optimal pedaling rate.
The pedals provide information to calculate the value of Cyclist Efficiency. The cyclist can identify how efficient the effort is on the bike and its transformation into power. This value is calculated by dividing the power by the total energy expenditure, determined based on the heart rate and personal data. By improving this value, performance will also be improving.
There are two packs: one that includes the pedals, for cyclists who already have one of the POLAR cycling computers compatible (CS600X, CS600, CS500 + and CS500) and another that also includes the POLAR CS600X GPS that incorporates GPS sensor POLAR G5.
The POLAR G5 GPS sensor only weighs 34g. and has an autonomy of 20h. Its battery is rechargeable both on the go and at rest, ideal for big and long adventures. This sensor offers speed, pace and distance data and also records the route to view it later. The data can be downloaded to the POLAR ProTrainer 5 software or via the weblink application at www.polarpersonaltrainer.com. POLAR's online training diary allows you to share training sessions on social networks and challenge other users in the community.
"I have used the Polar Look Kéo Power and it is extremely useful. Thanks to power controls the power generated, the balance of my legs in the pedaling and the cadence, I have greatly improved my cycling technique. As a professional cyclist, I value the precision and ease of use of this product. "
Mickael Buffaz, professional road cyclist of the COFIDIS team.

POLAR and LOOK, 2 leading innovation companies
In 1984 LOOK, he invented the first pedal with integrated coupling and in 1982 POLAR created the first heart rate meter thanks to Polar's WIND Transmission (without wires and without interference). Both brands have come together to offer an unprecedented product that offers maximum reliability to cyclists who want to get the most out of their sessions.
