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.

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!??
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.
A:I'm having same issue so pass along anything that resolves it!
Q:Virtual Training doesn't show P1L and P1R. Only 1 Power Meter signal. Trying to set crank arm length (mine are 165mm). I have a Samsung smart phone, and Suunto Ambit 2 Sports watch.
Q:Are these pedals sold as a pair for 1200 dollars or is that price per pedal?
Q:Will these pedals work with s works carbon cranks?
A:These pedals will work with any crank.
A:Of course. That is the beauty of a pedal based power meter. The power is being measured at the pedal. Carbon, non-carbon, drive train doesn't really matter. I have one set of P1 on a SRAM Red crank and another set on some Fulcrum R cranks. They both work like a charm. Love my P1s.
A:Absolutely. Make sure to use the supplied washers on carbon cranks.
A:Definitely will work.
A:There is a spacer, which comes with the pedals, that is used with carbon cranks.
A:It's my understanding the pedals will work with any crank set.
A:Yes. They will work with any cranks as they thread on just like any other pedal.
A:yes they will work with your s-works cranks, make sure you use the provided washers.
A:Yes. They work with any crank
A:Yes. They will work with the S-Works Carbon Crank
A:Absolutely. A friend of mine had a set installed on a pair of S-Works cranks.
Q:Is this pedals able to measure torque or only downward pressure? In other words, is it able to take into account the upward pulling upon the upward pedal?
A:On the P1 pedals, both pedals are capable of doing that. They measure your output on every point on the rotation of the crank. There are actually computer head units that show how much output u apply throughout your pedal stroke.
A:Don't know. Just got mine.
A:Yes it measures the entire revolution of the pedals. I can see my pulling power as well as pushing.
A:Yes it will measure torque all the way around the pedal stroke and integrate to produce power measurements
Q:I have tried the instructions on the below link to update my pedals, but I keep getting a message along the lines of failed to communicate with firmware web updater.
A:I have found most luck utilizing the iPhone app for updating the units and pairing them as well.
Q:I use 20mm knee savers/spacers on my pedals. Would this affect the P1 pedals accuracy? Would they work with the spacers?
A:Yes, the P1 pedals will work.
Q:I have been trying for the past 2 weeks off and on to check and update the firmware on my pedals through the Virtual Training App. I am using the dongle that is suggested. When I click the check Firmware button I get an error that states it had a failure connecting to the web updater service.
A:I believe it would be very uncomfortable to wear running shoes with these pedals. Best best would be to wear bike/tri shoes with the P1s. Not aware of any attachments that can be used with regular running shoes either.
A:No, you must use proper, stiff-soled cycling shoes with the PowerTap cleats.
A:No. absolutely not. Must use cleats supplied by power tap along with cycling shoes.
A:I am not aware of anything. To get proper power readings, the shoe needs to be attached the pedal with cleats, and the cleats need inserts in the shoes to attach properly. The pedals are broad enough for you to pedal with them with normal shoes, but I have no idea if the sensors will work properly.
A:No, you must wear cycling shoes with the proper cleats to fit the powertap pedal.
A:Sorry but you do need to use the cleat system with the pedals. I have ridden in the parking lot in just shoes and it is possible but would not recommend it nor do it because you don't have good platform for your feet. The cleat system is very easy to use
Q:My powertap p1 left pedal can be connected but right pedal can not , change new battery already n still cant solve this problem . I had to update my pedal to new version already(use ipad app)
A:Had similar problem but worse, the left pedal would push impossible data. Had to send them to Powertap for service, excellent service after that. You have to contact manufacturer. Send email and they'll answer (with some delay), or just call.
