The quest for power continues. That’s for power meters I mean to say.
Spanish brand, Rotor, has announced the launch of their new Power LT crank-based power meter, which uses a non-driveside power meter to reduce weight, but perhaps most importantly, cost.
At $1490, the new single-sided power meter leverages the competition by offering a similar price-point power/crank that measures output in both legs as well.
Rotor says the new LT was developed at the request of the Lampre-Merida professional team, who wanted a simpler and lighter power meter. In turn, the Italian squad put the LT to task during this summer’s Tour de France, along with other races, with great success.
The new Power LT calculates power data via strain gauges inside the left, non-driveside, crank arm. From there, it basically doubles the data using a mathematical equation to quantify power, much like competitors such as Stages and Garmin do.
The Power LT can transmit data to any device that’s ANT+ compatible, and it’s available in 110 and 130 BCD options with various arm lengths.
According to Rotor, LT only adds 58g to their current 3D+ crankset, and it’s compatible with most bottom brackets on the market.
