Quarq launch two bold new power meters for 2013.
January 22, 2013 – Quarq today announced two bold new power meters that pack enhanced accuracy and versatility into sleek, unified chassis.
Topflight ELSA 10R ($1995/€1787) brings fresh crank lengths, unyielding strength and Power BalanceTM, and shuns weight. A subatomic spider and SRAM ExogramTM hollow carbon crank arms generate just 735g (172.5mm, GXP, 53/39).
In a boon for bike fit and fast finishing triathletes, ELSA 10R comes in lengths from 162.5mm to 177.5mm. Rock-steady RIKEN 10R ($1595/€1428) features durable, integrated electronics, a CR2032 battery and improved clearance for oversize bottom brackets.
ELSA 10R and RIKEN 10R are accurate to +/-1.5% and employ OmnicalTM, which separates power measurement from chainring selection. Swap from road to TT ‘rings without recalibration.
An LED and visible ANT+ ID make installation and operation a breeze.
ELSA 10R is available now. RIKEN 10R will be available on February 22.
Quarq was founded in 2006 and has defined bicycle power meter development ever since. In 2011, Quarq was acquired by SRAM LLC. In 2012, Quarq powered multiple world champions and its technology shaped the groundbreaking SRAM RED Quarq Power Meter – the first and only power meter in a groupset.
