These aren't ordinary pedals. The P1 pedal is a simple, intelligent and uncompromising design that provides the same proven PowerTap accuracy and reliability. The simple one-piece design easily mounts to any crank and does not require calibration nor installation angle setting, providing a true “plug-and-play” experience. The P1 also features dual band ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART for compatibility with a multitude of head units and smart devices. Plus, the independent measurement opens the possibility for a new set of pedaling metrics previously unavailable to help give you the ultimate competitive edge.

Q:I am using the P1 on a trike (tricycle bike with normal crank, except as you are on a horizontal seat you don't pedal as vertically as a normal bike).
A:Ben - before your next ride perform a manual zero and ride for approximately 2 minutes. During this time your pedals will learn the installation angle and begin to accurately transmit power. Thank you for your question.
A:Steve- please confirm that you are using the latest version of the PowerTap Mobile application but checking for an update on your device from the AppStore. If you are unable to connect to your device remove the battery and replace it after 30 seconds. Then try to reconnect the pedals to PowerTap Mobile and repeat the update process. Thank you for your inquiry.
Q:Calibrating pedals to the Garmin 920 XT results in "Calibration Failed Error 65535".....Try again. Pedals are paired to the Garmin and show connected. While riding they read out fine. Do they need to be calibrated at all?
A:Doc - the P1 pedals should be 'calibrated' or manually zeroed regularly. Please confirm that both pedals are awake and paired when trying to perform a 'calibration' and that there is no force being applied to either pedal. Thank you for reaching out and if your issue continues please try connecting to our customer service team for troubleshooting.
Q:What tool/App do I use to compare my left/right leg power?
A:Jim- you can use the PowerTap mobile app for iOS or there are several dedicated displays like the Joule GPS+ and many other Garmin products that have pedal capabilities. Thank you for your inquiry.
A:James- Can you please let me know which display unit you are using? Also, can you please confirm that the battery has not been prematurely drained by trying it in a different application? Thank you for reaching out.
Q:I've had a pair of Powertap P1 pedals for a couple of months now and they worked perfectly to begin with, however, recently they have been giving rather erratic readings going from 80W to 220W then back again. On the balance reading it's also showing the same erractic readings and from the looks of things the left pedal doesn't appear to be function correctly. I've changed the battery multiple time and have also tried updating the firmware using the iPhone app but it states that fireware is up to date. When I change the battery on the left pedal the LED green light flashes as it should do, however if I leave it for a while and come back to it, when I try and wake the left pedal up it either doesn't respond at all or responds with a very faint LED green light which you can barely see. It sounds as though it may be a fault with the left pedal, is there any solution to this or do the pedals need to be send back?
A:BP - This sounds like a simple fix but the pedals do need to be sent back for us to assess the issue and make the fix. Please coordinate with our customer service team if you are in the USA or with the retailer you made the purchase through to get this resolved in a timely manner. Thank you for reaching out.
Q:I have a wired Powertap wheel (hub) and just bought and installed the P1 pedals. Both are calibrated each ride but the P1 pedals read on average 37 watts lower than the hub. Why would there be such a large power discrepancy between the two?
Q:Hi. do they register cadence?
A:Yes, they do measure cadence.
Q:Do you guys know if these are compatible with the Bryton Rider 310 computer?
A:Yes, it appears as though the Bryton Rider 310 supports ANT+ power meters so should work well with the P1's. Thank you for your question.
Q:I have had my P1's for 2 months, no problems at all - until suddenly, the master pedal stops transmitting to the headhunt every 2 mins and flashes red. It seems to clear itself after about a minute or so, but the problem re-occurs.
