    Q:

    Hello, I have a bike with SRAM Red eTap. Is the assumption will not cause any trouble between eTap and P1? Thank you.

      No problem, the P1 pedals use either Bluetooth or Ant+, eTap uses a different comm protocol developed by Sram.

  • PowerTap P1 Pedals

    Q:

    Hey there. Does the power data recording (avg.power, np power) depends on head unit (garmin, polar, etc) or application used (wahoo fintess, trainer road). Also another question how the applications like Wahoo Fitness or Trainer Road would know the "crack length" setting in order to capture data correctly?
    The reason I am asking it seeem the power data is a bit different when I am using Garmnin Fenix 3 vs Wahoo Fitness Apps.

    Thank you,
    Maxat

      The PowerTap assumes a 172.5 mm crank length unless otherwise indicated by you on the head unit. If it's not the same on each head unit it could be different. Also if you go from using a trainer inside to riding your bike outside; the temperature differences will give you different power readings unless you manual zero it on the head unit every time

      Hello,
      Lots going on there and not particularly sure what you set up is - if you would provide more information - that would be great.
      The short answer is - yes - the power recording and reporting does depend on the head unit and the application.
      What are you seeing as the power differential? Are you ‘calibrating’ (zero offsetting) before rides?
      Have you updated firmware across all of your platforms & products?
      Some great information here about other people’s experiences and how they have solved similar issues:

      I haven’t had a need to try it yet - but you can use the Powertap Mobile App to set the crank arm length as well (Chapter 4):

      Let me know if any of that helps!

      I have not yet used my Garmin 800 head. So far, I've only used iPad with
      Trainer Road software.
      The crank arm length setting is important and described in page 5 of 9
      within the PowerTap pdf user manual. Yes, that was tricky to find. I have
      found it both within the PowerTap iPhone app and within the iPad Trainer
      Road software by double tapping the PowerTap sensor label within each of
      those utilities.
      Enjoy!

      Hi there!
      While I have not used the Suunto, the P1 pedals hook up beautifully using
      Bluetooth Smart (BLE) protocol.
      I think your Suunto will read them perfectly.

  • PowerTap P1 Pedals

    Q:

    My right battery is going flat when not in use, as if the pedal doesn't 'power off' after my session. Next day there's very little juice or 2 days later none at all. Any suggestions? I've tried cleaning the battery compartment with a dry cloth. They haven't been used in a while, but stored dry.

      Does the small light on the pedal go off when the pedal is not in use?
       I've had my pedals since October, 2016, and have just worn out my first
      set of batteries.  I do train consistently, and have at least 50-60
      hours on a set of batteries.

    Q:

    I am having problems with zero offsetting my pedals.
    It just stays at "calibrating". It does not show "calibration successful".

      As per Dcrainmaker.com;
      In any case, from a usage standpoint things here are pretty simple in that
      there's nothing for you to do other than jump onboard and ride. You can
      perform a zero offset, though there's no specific need to as it'll auto-zero
      when not pedaling (roughly similar in concept to how PowerTap's hub works).

    Q:

    Hi there
    I recently purchased these pedals,when i turn on my Garmin 520 it keeps telling me the right sensor is missing and when i unclip the left pedal to do one leg efforts the right pedal doesn't give any data is this common? can someone please help
    Asked on 12/18/2016 by Tom from Kerry ireland

    • A:

      The right pedal is a slave to the left. Its power only transmits to the left. This is why the Garmin does not see it. Also the right left balance seems off to me. I am not sure whether it is a Garmin issue or a Powertap issue. No matter. Still a great product!??

      Answered on 12/23/2016 by jhayward53 from undisclosed
    • A:

      This is a common occurrence. I set up my second data screen to display the left/right power balance. Simply turn the right/slave pedal around to wake it up before you even turn your crank or spin the left/master pedal. The right will always serve as the slave so I have found that waking it up before the master I get the warning less. Calibrate by setting the left pedal to 6am to complete the zero offset in your Garmin. Hop on, start your ride and you can review the left/right balance to confirm your Garmin is capturing data from both pedals. Isolated Leg Drills (unclipping) from the left pedal will drop your power to zero because it is the master and all information from both the master and slave passes through it so it calculates no effort and drops to zero because you have unclipped from the master. I hope that this helps.
