The first race of any season is always a nervous one for athlete and coach alike. Irrespective of how well you might think that winter training has gone, you never really know until race day. Ordinarily, Michi is able to get into early season race shape really quickly. After a 2-week holiday break where he completely downs tools it usually takes him just 12 weeks or so before he is chomping at the bit and feeling ready to race. This ability certainly has something do with some form of ‘muscle memory’ where year after year the body gets used to getting back into shape for each new season’s campaign. Once the consistent training begins all the good stuff – body fat reduction, increased lean body mass, lower heart rates for given training intensities, increased ability to sustain target race pace/power, improved aerobic capacity and so on – happens within weeks. However, this year was very different!

We are excited to announce a substantial global price reduction effective immediately for all PowerMeter models including road, mountain bike, and track. The new MSRP pricing reflects an average 30% decrease from previous years.
As the creator of cycling’s first power meter, SRM applied 30-years of experience and ingenuity to reexamine design and manufacturing efficiencies. The German-born authority in power measurement was able to successfully redefine pricing, while preserving a legacy of quality and hand-built craftsmanship.
SRM PowerMeters start at $1399 [1428 € incl. 19 % VAT] for spiders using Specialized, Cannondale, SRAM and Rotor crank arms. SRM’s most popular PowerMeter, the Shimano 11-speed model is reduced from $2970 to $2199 [2380 € incl. 19% VAT] including crank arms and chain rings. The SRM SRAM compatible model, in GXP and BB30, is now available for $1599[2023 € incl. 19% VAT] including crank arms and chain rings.
“This pricing change has been months in the making,” expressed SRM Founder & CEO, Ulrich Schoberer. “We have listened to customer and retailer feedback, and after intensive analysis SRM is proud to be in a position to respond to those demands,” Schoberer adds.
Along with the price reduction, SRM is backing its PowerMeter and PowerControl models with a Limited Lifetime Warranty [valid for SRM USA]. “SRM is widely regarded as the pinnacle of accuracy and reliability for power measurement. Providing a lifetime warranty to our customers will offer peace of mind knowing their investment is protected,” remarks Schoberer. Our new Limited Lifetime Warranty can be viewed here.
For more information, contact your local SRM retailer or visit store.srm.de for a complete overview of the new pricing and product information.
