Global Price Reduction

31. January 2016 - 11 months and 20 days ago

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.

Ironman Cozumel 2015

05. December 2015 - 1 year, 1 month and 14 days ago

On the 29th November 2015, on a particularly hot Ironman Cozumel Sunday, SRM sponsored triathlete, Michi Weiss, posted the 2nd fastest bike split of the day en route to 3rd place overall and his third consecutive podium at this race which he has dominated for the last two years winning by seven minutes in 2013 and a staggering twenty minutes last year. Coming just six weeks after the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii where Michi also posted a top 10 bike split, he arrived in Mexico two weeks before race day feeling good and ready to mount the second consecutive defense of his title. The Cozumel race course is one that really suits Michi’s specific abilities in that the buoyancy providing ocean swim also features a favorable current which helps the non front pack swimmers like Michi to exit the water within touching distance of the leaders, as he did again this year posting an Ironman PB of 0:49:40 for the 3.8km swim. The bike course is fast and flat with technical sections, which is perfect for the strongest cyclists and as such Michi already holds the course record. The run surface is also consistent and flat. And so it was that those of us on Team Weiss were pretty confident that another dominating victory was doable, even likely. In this article I am going to unpack Michi’s SRM power file from the race and highlight the reasons why a title defense is such a hard thing to pull off, especially when it is the second one in two years!
