Quarq released its first-ever bicycle power meter a decade ago and has now launched DZero, a technologically advanced incarantion they describe as the ‘next-generation power meter platform’.
With a new measurement circuit, a revised strain gauge design, improved accuracy throughout the pedal stroke and software advances built into the Qalvin App, DZero represents the state of the art in power meter technology.
Other new features include –
Dual Bluetooth low energy technology and ANT+, letting you choose how to capture the data.
A simplified product line, making it easier to choose and install the right power meter for your bike.
Increased compatibility, including Boost 148 (52mm chainline) mountain bikes and BB386EVO bottom brackets.
Competitive prices, thanks to 10 years of manufacturing advances.
Like its Quarq brethren, the new DZero platform measures power in the heart of the bicycle — the crankset spider, scientifically proven to be the most accurate place to measure power.
DZero power meters inherit 10K temperature compensation, easy-to-replace batteries, OmniCal (change chainrings without affecting accuracy), AxCad (accelerometer cadence – no magnet), an IPX7 waterproof rating and a 2-year-warranty.
In addition, Quarq is partnering with original equipment bicycle manufacturers to build bikes with Quarq Prime Power Ready Cranksets that can be easily upgraded with the addition of a Quarq DZero power meter spider.
Jim Meyer, Technology Director with Quarq, said bicycle dealers will like the Quarq Prime/DZero combination because it simplifies their inventory.
“And we know that more bicyclists, in every discipline, are turning to power meters to reach the next level in training and competition,” he said
“We wanted to make it as easy as possible, especially for riders new to power meters, to select a state-of-the-art power meter.”
