Hot News: New Verve InfoCrank provides bilateral power measurement

Gear Power Meters Sea Otter Classic

The increasingly crowded power meter market welcomed its latest member at the Sea Otter Classic with the unveiling of the Verve InfoCrank. Developed by a team of Australian engineers, the new watts measuring device is claimed to provide true left and right data output via integrated modules in the crankarms. It requires no calibration and users can change batteries themselves. Other features include automatic temperature compensation and integrated cadence sensors in each arm.

The InfoCrank retails for $1,750, which includes the power meter, full alloy Praxis Works Levatime cold-forged crankset and bottom bracket, and an O_Synce Navi2Coach head unit, which is on par with a Garmin 510. The device transmits via ANT + protocol, making it compatible with most other units currently on the market if you want to use something besides the Navi2Coach.

Gearing options are 50-34 and 52-36. Crank length options are 170mm, 172.5mm, and 175mm. Bottom bracket choices include BB30, press-fit and standard English. The crankset has a compact 110mm BCD five-bolt spider and 150mm Q-Factor. Claimed battery life is 500 hours.

Availability is slated for early June and the unit will only be sold on-line through the company’s website. Verve is taking pre-orders now. More info at
