The SGY-PMLTC Pioneer Power Meter hits the market!
The Pioneer SGY-PMLTC Single Leg Power Meter
Want to get into Power metrics for triathlon and cycle training, but don’t want to break the bank? Pioneer Cycle Sports just released a single leg power meter that will gain you entry into the world of training with power and will install on your existing 11-speed Shimano crank (Dura-Ace, Ultegra or 105). Not only does this represent a way for beginner triathletes and cyclists to get access to the same type of power metrics that the pros use to improve, it also shows an expansion of compatible component sets as Pioneer continues to innovate on their already impressive lineup of power products.
“We are excited to bring our power meter technology to cycling enthusiasts’ at the most affordable price. Traditionally when consumers buy a crank arm-based power meter, they end up with a spare crank arm. Our kit model eliminates the need to invest in a second crank arm, which will save the consumer between $60 and $130 and it’s easily installed on their existing crank arm,” said Russ Johnston, executive vice president of marketing and corporate communications for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “With the ability to be installed on arm lengths from 165mm to 180mm, this one model can address consumer demand and help retailers eliminate requirements for a broad line-up of inventory to meet all cyclists’ needs.”
Installation is simple and painless – another way in which Pioneer is leading the industry in terms of making power available to all consumers, not just those riding in the pro peloton. Just bring your bike into the closest authorized Pioneer retailer, and they’ll work with Pioneer to take care of the details – you’ll get a power equipped ride in only a few short days. Pioneer is committed to remaining in contact with your shop of choice throughout the process in order to make it painless for you.
Don’t want to spring for a whole power system up front? When you purchase the SGY-PMLTC single leg unit, it’s compatible with ANT + devices currently on the market, meaning it’s a great addition to your current set up and connects seamlessly and easily to your watch or cycle computer of choice. At just $499, it’s the best way in the industry to start learning what Power can do for your training. Head on over to Pioneer Cycle Sports to check it out for yourself!
