With almost five years on the market, Pioneer has proven their commitment to the cycling market, and proven their product on the Pro Tour stage. Now, they’re proving the benefit of being a large scale consumer electronics manufacturer, too, by dropping their prices to very, very competitive levels.
The latest Pioneer dual-leg power meters for Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 and Ultegra R8000 were introduced at Interbike. Now, just a few months after their debut, they’re dropping prices by $200-$300 for complete cranksets with pre-installed power meters. That means a brand new Dura-Ace crankset with individual left/right power measurement for $1,299. Or get Ultegra for just $999. It’s not quite as sleek as the fully integrated Shimano power meter, but it’s now considerably less expensive and comes with Pioneer’s impressive suite of measurements and analysis.
Already have your own Shimano cranks? Get the Pioneer PM9100C Consumer Kit from $799 (down from $999) and send them in to have Pioneer clean and install the dual power meter kit onto your existing cranks.
