Power means many things to many people, but what is power and why has it become important to cycling? A power meter is one of many tools used to impact performance, fitness and other desired physiological outcomes such as weight loss. Power meters used in road cycling have been around since the late ’80s, but in the early days, power meters were only available to elite athletes and in sport science laboratories. Today, power meter technology is available in road racing, on indoor bikes and is being used by a wide variety of people. Regardless of one’s age, gender, fitness level or athletic ability, measuring work effort is key to achieving fitness and/or performance goals.
