Stages Cycling might have brought affordability to the segment with its crank-based power meter systems but it's the pedal-based units from PowerTap, Garmin and now Favero Electronics that are fast-becoming the go-to choice among cyclists. This despite weighing a considerable amount more than the crank-based alternative

Not only are power pedals easy to swap between bikes but the plug-and-play nature also nullifies the need for complex fitting procedures as experienced by crank, hub, spindle and spider-based power meters.
