SRAM Red/Force AXS Power Meter Spider
If you buy your SRAM AXS Red or Force Crankset without the powermeter , don't worry, you can upgrade when you're ready with this SRAM Powermeter Spider for Red & Force AXS Cranks. The 107 BCD system bolts onto the base crank arms, and you simply mount it, then your rings, sync it to a head unit and roll with it.
With this spider powermeter system, SRAM Quarq surpassed the excellence of the previous generation units, which were highly regarded. The Bluetooth low energy (BLE) technology and ANT+ wireless data transfer choices delivers more options and simple smartphone direct set-up. The Qalvin BLE app powers wireless firmware updates, diagnostics, power meter zeroing and calibration, and is equally useful for home or bike shop service, and riders of any level. You can even change the power meter’s slope using the built-in calibration routines. It is great to have such a simple and useful interface for these processes.
The powermeter itself is housed in a CNC machined aluminum spider. You bolt up to the crank, install rings and go. The OmniCal calibration system ensures that you can install and change rings without impacting the power meter's overall calibration. The alignment of the design keeps the Quarq battery compartment completely accessible on the front of the crankset, just above the arm. ANT+ or BLE transmission is verified by LED for simple, clear operation, and Quarq makes the ANT+ ID visible to ensure proper connection. The system is also fully set-up for AXS eTap wireless integration.
Quarq has installed their AxCad™ accelerometer, which eliminates the need for a cadence magnet. Given the shape and size of the spider, many frames formerly had difficulty accommodating the unit and the magnet. Now the set-up is cleaner and you have more frame clearance. AxCad is a highly reliable measure of cadence while pedaling, and reacts quickly to changes and stoppage. Many power meter manufacturers have struggled to address temperature variation, but the engineers developed new sensors and firmware, called 10K™ temperature compensation, that eliminates temperature effects on power measurement through more frequent, more accurate temperature readings throughout the pedal stroke. Quarq considers the DZero to be accurate in all conditions to within +/- 1.5%, placing it among the most accurate power meters on the market.
ANT+ wireless transmission gives you maximum flexibility in your choice of head units from Garmin, PowerTap, Lezyne, and so on. Or you can choose BLE/AXS capable head units or smartphones. Syncing your DZero is simple, as is your pre-ride zeroing. All of the usual power measurement metrics are measured and calculated for your head unit and can be downloaded or transferred to your favorite training and analysis programs, such as Training Peaks, Strava, Golden Cheetah and many more. The widely available CR2032 battery generally delivers 300 hours of transmission before replacement is necessary, so you won't have to worry about losing data. Quarq power meters have an IPX7 waterproof rating, so you ride in the rain all you want. They feature a 2-year warranty, free firmware updates, and strong Quarq-direct support.
