The device is made to withstand the mud, water and abuse of mountain biking with a 700 hour battery life and accuracy of +/- 1.5%. It’s available July 1 for $2,399 for the powermeter only or $3,299 for the complete system.
Details and full PR after the break…
SRM Training Systems is proud to announce the retail release of the long awaited SRAM 2×10 SRM MTB PowerMeter. Heeding the demands of top amateur and professional racers, SRM has developed a power meter to function with the widely used SRAM 2×10 drive train systems. An innovative result of collaboration between SRM and SRAM, the 2×10 PowerMeter will allow for a more detailed analysis of racing and training, providing objective metrics to analyze and train for the demands of race courses of XC, Short Track XC, Super-D, and endurance events.
With many XC and enduro courses remaining the same from year to year, having a power meter equipped bike allows the racer to record the specific demands needed to race a particular event. This allows the racer to tailor their training more specifically at critical time periods throughout the training season leading to goal events from which data was recorded a season prior. Knowing how many accelerations, length and duration of climbs as well as average power for a certain event can completely reshape the parameters of the typical training program. The SRAM 2×10 SRM MTB PowerMeter was designed for the racer wanting to take their performance to new heights!
The SRAM 2×10 SRM MTB PowerMeter has been rigorously tested across the globe to ensure maximum weatherproofing and durability both on the trail and race course. Power and cadence data is transmitted via ANT+Sport™ protocol and received with either SRM PowerControl 7 head unit or other ANT+Sport™ compatible devices. The SRAM 2×10 SRM MTB PowerMeter has 700 hours of battery life and has an accuracy rating of +/- 1.5%*.
