Power meters have quite literally changed the way that cyclists train and race but gone are the days that they were only obtainable by pros and/or the particularly deep pocketed. The spread of these cycling aides can partly be attributed to 4iiii, the Canadian-based cycling tech company.

Building on the brand’s years worth of experience, this is a highly accurate and affordable power meter. There’s few—if any—reasons to look any further for a power meter than here.
Regardless of whether you’re an experienced user of power meters or you are just dipping your toes into the water, a device that produces accurate information, that is reliable, is a must. If you can’t count on the data you’re seeing being correct, then you’re really only carrying about dead weight—something no cyclist wants to do. Luckily, the 4iiii Precision 2 is well regarded has being one of the most accurate and reliable power meters on the market. Offering +/-1% accuracy, there are few brands in the same ballpark.

Additionally, the Precision 2 is also one of the most discrete. Weighing only 9 grams, even the most weight conscious cyclists would be hard pressed to notice it while riding. Being only a slender attachment to the inside of your crank arm it also fits virtually any bike frame.
