LOOK has developed the Keo Power: the first power and cadence measuring pedal for the most demanding cyclists.
Combined with POLAR technology for data transmission and display, the Keo Power permits direct display on the computer of pedalling information.
For athletes who leave nothing to chance, LOOK, the inventor of the automatic pedal and POLAR, inventor of the heart rate monitor, have combined their experience to offer an innovative, accurate reliable product.
The Keo Power pedal is Bluetooth compatible which opens Keo Power to multiple players: Smartphone (IPhone 4S and above / Android 4.3 and above), new Polar computers (V800/V650) and any other computer opting for Bluetooth in the future.
Polar helps you get under the skin of your training. They attribute it to a combination of expertise in sports, physiology and electronics, coupled with a deep understanding of customer needs. It comes as no surprise then that they've been leading the way in technological innovations and heart rate monitors since 1977.
The training revolution continues as powerful as ever, thanks to the CS600X. With Power Output SensorTM it provides valuable data to improve your cycling technique, and the compatible G3 GPS sensor keeps track of your route. So you know where you've been, and you know where your performance is going.
The Keo Power provides very accurate measurement of the power and cadence. Each spindle is equipped with 8 strain gauges permitting a precise measurement of the spindle deflection and the forces applied to it.
The observed measurement deviations, are less than 2%. The spindle electronics are designed to measure forces up to 170kg, obviously the spindle can support much larger forces. The cadence is measured using a reed relay placed in the body of the pedal.
Through the force and cadence measurement, the Keo Power is capable of giving the power. The information is then sent to the POLAR transmitter, which sends it wirelessly to the cyclometer via the WIND® protocol.
LEFT / RIGHT BALANCE
Because it measures the power on each spindle, the Keo Power displays the left/right power distribution as a percentage. This will allow experienced cyclists to improve their pedalling technique.
EASY TO INSTALL, USE & SELF-CALIBRATION
The Keo Power is very easy to install, compatible with the majority of bicycles on the market and very easy to move from one bike to another, in contrast to systems that are found in the crankset or the hub.
Calibration is done automatically when the system starts up.
