Garmin Launches Rally Pedal-Based Power Meters

Garmin has launched is latest Rally pedal-based power meters, providing cyclists with crucial data such as total power, cadence, left/right balance, power phase and other important metrics, as well as single and dual-sensing pedal options:

“We know cyclists are out there training to improve their performance every day, and we have created a power meter that they can depend on to help them achieve their goals,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “These Rally pedals have undergone rigorous testing to ensure we are not only providing cyclists with a superior pedal design, but with a power meter that riders can rely on to take their training to the next level.”

Designed with the sensors housed in the pedals, the Rally power meters deliver reliable, accurate data on every training session. With the Rally RK200, Rally RS200 and Rally XC200 dual-sensing pedal-based power meters, cyclists can see right and left leg data metrics independently. Measuring cadence, total power, left-right balance and advanced cycling dynamics, the dual-sensing pedals show cyclists how and where they are producing power to help them understand their specific strengths and weaknesses to improve their pedaling form. The dual-sensing pedals also track time spent seated versus standing so riders can gauge position effectiveness and where power is applied on the pedal to ensure proper cleat position.

The single-sensing Rally RK100, Rally RS100 and Rally XC100 use the forces detected on the left pedal to measure both cadence and power and can easily be upgraded later to the dual-sensing system.

The Rally RS100 and Rally RS200 are compatible with Shimano SPD-SL road cleats, while the Rally RK100 and Rally RK200 are compatible with Look KEO road cleats. The Rally XC100 and Rally XC200 models are compatible with Shimano SPD cleats for mountain bike, gravel or cyclocross riders. 

Additionally, cyclists can also get the most from their training by pairing the Rally power meters with compatible Edge cycling computers and the Garmin Connect app to seamlessly upload data and update software. The Rally power meters are also compatible with popular indoor training platforms, including the Tacx Training app, Zwift, TrainerRoad and more.

The Rally pedals, which install like any other pedal, can be quickly swapped between bikes, feature up to 120 hours of battery life, allowing riders to train for weeks or possibly months at a time. Also, in order to keep cyclists riding year-round on- and off-road, the spindle is uniquely designed to be transferable between different Rally pedal bodies.

The dual-sensing pedals range in price from $1,099.99 to $1,199.99, while the single-sensing pedals range in price from $649.99 to $699.99. The optional upgrade pedals range in price from $549.99 to $599.99.
