Easton CINCH Power Meter Spindle

The Easton CINCH Power Meter facilitates wattage readings and enables training control in a wide range of applications. The CINCH power meter spindle costs € 899, only weighs 65 g more than a standard axle, and can be quickly installed on your existing EC90 SL Crankset (or purchased with your new crankset pre-installed). The installation is straightforward and hassle-free: install the axle, set it up with the app, and off you go. After a one-time connection with your smartphone, the power meter will automatically appear in all apps like STRAVA and can be used to record your ride. Thanks to Bluetooth 4.0 and ANT+ technology, the connection with modern GPS devices is straightforward. The CINCH system allows for a variety of 1x and 2x drivetrain setups and is also a perfect upgrade option. According to Easton, the accuracy of the measurements is +/- 2 %. The battery is meant to last a minimum of 400 hours and is chargeable via USB. Combined with high-quality Easton cranks, the Easton CINCH Power Meter is the most versatile and intuitive power meter for road and cyclocross. There is also a spindle option for mountain bikes. Clever detail: there is an airplane mode that you can activate via the app to prevent the battery from going flat in transit or bumpy car journeys.

Weight: 167 g (incl. power meter) | Price: € 899
