Assioma: The Only Power Meter With…

Tech & Tests

Plug&Play installation, dual Bluetooth/ANT+ communication, data consistency, automatic temperature compensation… these are must-have features for a pedal-based power meter, still, you’ve probably missed what really makes Favero Assioma so special. In this article, we will focus on the unique aspects that make the Assioma power meter pedals stand out sharply from the rest.

  • Electronic-Less Pedal Body: easy and low-cost maintenance
    Being Assioma a pedal-based power meter this is probably the most unexpected and exclusive of its features: the pedal body of Assioma does not have any electronics in it. As a matter of fact, all the electronic components are positioned in a safe and protected area around the pedal axle. Plus, this feature makes the Assioma pedal body as easy to disassemble as a regular one and, if needed, it allows you to take care of its maintenance by yourself; bearings lubrication and replacement included.

  • Bicomponent Filling Resin: absolute waterproofing
    Guaranteeing a 100% waterproofing is essential for any cycling power meter since the level of the signals in the electronic circuits, reading the strain gauges, is of the order of the microvolts: therefore very vulnerable to humidity. The solution we have implemented is to eliminate any opening on the outside (eg battery compartment, USB ports, charging slots, etc.) and to immerse all the electronics, battery included, into a special bicomponent resin block. As a result, inside Favero Assioma there's literally no space left for water, nor humidity.

  • Inbuilt Battery: for reliable charge level monitoring
    So, what if your power meter dies all of a sudden in the middle of a race/workout? You would have to either stop cycling or go on without power data and nor recordings your session for later analysis. Not to mention that if you were using an indoor/virtual cycling app, well, it would be literally GAME OVER. 
    With Assioma it won’t be the case. While devices using replaceable batteries usually provide approximate indications about their battery life, Assioma's rechargeable battery can provide the cyclist with a constant monitoring of the charge level through the Favero Assioma App. 

  • The Lowest Weight and Stack Height: for an optimal pedal stroke
    Assioma is the lightest pedal-based power meter ever made. Keep in mind that having a low weight is more important for a pedal than for other bike parts because any change in speed in the pedal means a loss of energy. Assioma has also the best stack height of all the power meter pedals out there: 10.5 mm. Some pedal manufacturers state that the closer the foot is to the spindle, the more efficiently the power is transmitted to the crank arm. In addition, many cyclists say a smaller stack height allows to have a smoother and more natural pedaling.

  • IAV POWER: ±1% accuracy, even with elliptical chainring
    Many power meters calculate power using the average angular velocity (Average) per rotation instead of the instantaneous angular velocity (real) value: this may introduce an additional error, up to 4.5%.
    Assioma, thanks to its exclusive IAV Power system and an integrated gyroscope, measures the actual instantaneous angular velocity to guarantee the same ±1% degree of accuracy with any style of pedaling, even with oval chainrings.

  • Designed and Made in Italy
    We follow the entire creative process of each product ourselves, from design to production.
    In our company in Italy, high-tech manufacturing meets skilful hand finishing by specialized technicians. Each component of Assioma was designed in house by Favero Electronics and passed strict control tests (load, shock, fatigue, wear, water resistance, electrical safety, etc.) fully satisfying the standards required by the current regulations.
    Favero Electronics manufactures in Italy every bike power meter and tests the good functioning of each unit individually to ensure maximum reliability and durability.
