  • PowerTap P1 Pedals

    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).

    I tried to use the P1 with the IOS App and other ANT+ compatible apps with Bike Power Meter profile, such as Ant+ Plugin on android.

    The cadence is OK. But I can't manage to have correct power measurements. At the beginning I have like (7W or 9W...once or two times, then nothing)
    The pedals are calibrated, zeroed, brand new batteries, etc...

    Could it be because of the way of pedaling which is different than on an ordinary bike?
    Do I need to pedal during a while until I have correct power measurements? (I mean are the pedals have to "learn" something before emitting power data?)

    Thank you.

      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.

      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:

    Hello

    I am having the same problem that a few others have had. When I install a brand new lithium battery (energizer ultimate lithium) into the left hand pedal unit it tells me the battery is low and after a few seconds it appears as critically low. I had no problems with the initial set of batteries which lasted just over 2 months. Do you have any more information on how to solve this problem? THe pedals are 3 months old. Thanks James

  • PowerTap P1 Pedals

    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?
    Asked on 4/15/2016 by Dean from Baton Rouge, LA

      A:

      Dean,

      A couple things could be causing the discrepancy. Confirm that you have the crank length on the pedals set correctly. This is handled in the sensor section of your display unit.

      Another thing to confirm is that the offset on your hub is still within acceptable range. Perform a manual zero and check the offset value your hub is sending. It should be within +/- 30 of 512. If it is out of that range please call our customer service dept for next steps.

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      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.

    Any ideas what the problem is?

      It sounds like the radio may be resetting. Can you confirm that you have updated your firmware (includes radio update) to version 24? If the problem persists after firmware update please do not hesitate to call our customer service dept.
