PowerTap’s P1 pedals came to market with one big trump card – transferability. With no pods and no torque requirement the P1s are as easy to fit as any other pedals so are easy to swap between bikes. Unlike Garmin’s V2, the P1s also fit every crank.
There are some downsides, though, and the first is immediately apparent: the P1s are very chunky. At 429g for the pair, they add 200g compared with most good pedals, and they reduce ground clearance too.
While that’s only of concern to racers, the fact that the edge of the battery cover is the first thing to hit should worry anyone. The first cornering scuff nearly ruined the pedal body; we were very careful after that.
Pairing and initial setup is very easy, and they wake up when you spin them or start riding. As pedals, they’re fine. The supplied Keo-style cleats give very loose float; with real Look Keo cleats they feel like other Look pedals, with clean engagement and release. Their weight means they always hang at the right angle to locate the cleat.
