SRM is keeping up with the times by adding a Boost chainline compatible version of their crankarm spider mountain bike power meter. It has a 104BCD and works with 32 to 38 tooth counts, weighs in at a claimed 515g, is available with 170mm or 175mm SRAM XX1-level carbon crank arms, and has a Q-factor or 168mm. Battery life is 900 hours. The design gets an updated chassis that they say holds up to anything from XC to DH (yes, that means enduro, too) while capturing your power output with a +/-1% accuracy rate.

In February, they unveiled their modular system using carbon crank arms made in partnership with Look Cycles. The design lets you pair any length spindle with any length or style arms, and thanks to Look’s pedal insert, adjust the effective arm length to suit your needs. Full details in this post.

SRM PC8 gets wireless updates and syncs for Strava

At Eurobike, they said the PC8 would be getting a firmware update that allowed for wireless updates and data downloads. Well, it’s finally happened, so now you can send that ride to Strava, SRM X, Training Peaks or whatever without having to plug it into anything. It also got a lot more colors at Eurobike, hit that link above and see the rainbow.
