What Is Power?

Power is measured in watts. A watt is a basic unit of power equal to 1 joule per second. It is a common unit used to express effort exerted. A power meter measures power by tracking the amount of torque produced by your pedaling and multiplying that number by cadence, or how fast you’re pedaling. So for a moving bicycle, Power = Torque x Cadence.

A power meter measures your power output, enabling you to make data-backed decisions that prevent burnout and injuries that come from over-exertion. A power meter provides you with the information needed to build strength and improve your overall technique. Through power analysis, you are able to understand your baseline fitness, visualize your gains, and understand your energy usage and the intensity, duration, and frequency of your ride.
