Favero is an Italian manufacturer of single and double sided pedal power meters. They enter the powermeter market in 2015 with the bePro Powermeter. The bePro Powermeter enjoyed great popularity, although the assembly was still a bit complicated. Then in 2017, Favero launched the Favero Assioma Uno and Favero Assioma Duo Powermeter. Here they have ironed out the flaws of their debut product and created a true plug and play system that is now very easy to install and measures power with a very high degree of accuracy.
You can find all Favero Assioma powermeters and Assioma accessories / spare parts in our powermeter shop powermeter24.com. The Favero Assioma powermeters are now in the same league as the Garmin Vector powermeters and the Powertap pedalpowermeters. The Favero Assioma Duo are technically absolutely equivalent to the Garmin Vector 3 or the new Powertap P2 powermeters.
Favero does not have its own bike computer in its range. The Garmin bike computers and the computers from Wahoo have proven themselves particularly well. The Wahoo bike computers are especially easy to configure with your smartphone. The Garmin computers, on the other hand, have advantages in navigation from our point of view and have the slightly fancier design. Technically, both manufacturers are on a par.
Favero Electronics – the bePRO Powermeter
With the bePRO Powermeter, Favero Electronics launched a new pedal powermeter in 2015. This is significantly cheaper than comparable pedal power meters on the market and also convinces with a high durability and very good measurement values. Favero Electronics has shown here that they can extend their experience from measurement and control technology very well to other areas. Both power meters from Favero Electronics contain a lithium ion battery, so that no battery change is necessary and the athlete can directly charge the power meter via USB charging cable. Furthermore, the Favero Electronics powermeters have the ANT+ technology, which makes it possible that the powermeter can be connected to almost all ANT+ bike computers. Favero offers a single- and double-sided power meter. The difference between the two powermeters from Favero Electronics is that the one-sided powermeter only has the measuring technology installed on the left pedal. With the double-sided power meter from Favero, the measuring technology is integrated on both sides.
With the bePRO S (one-sided model), only the applied force from the left leg is measured. The values are then doubled, so that the rider then gets a total value of both on the bike computer. With the bePRO (bilateral model), the applied force from both legs is measured separately and also displayed separately on the cycling computer. The single-ended powermeter can be upgraded to a dual-ended one with the Favero Upgrade Kit.
Successor of the bePRO – Assioma Powermeter
Favero Electronics launches the successor of the bePRO Powermeter. The manufacturer decided on the name, Favero Assioma Uno and Favero Assioma Duo. Furthermore the Powermeter is a pedl based power measurement system. The Assioma Powermeter brings many new features for you, which simplify the power measurement in everyday life or in competition.
The bePRO Powermeter is already known and popular among athletes because of its robustness and measurement accuracy. Therefore, the Assioma Powermeter with its new functions and quality will appeal to you and convince you.
Assembly and battery
In the area of design, however, not much has changed in the Assioma Powermeter, but in the technical area and assembly. The first advantage of the Assioma Powermeter is that you no longer need any special tools or mounting stickers. You only have to screw the Assioma to the crank arm and you are directly “ready to go”. The assembly can be compared with a normal pedal change. The Assioma also has status lights built into the sensor, which give you information about the charging and operating status.
Favero has also increased the battery life for you. The bePRO Powermeter has a battery life of about 30 hours, which was too little for some top athletes, so Favero increased the battery life of the Assioma Powermeter to about 50 hours. Charging the battery also changes. You no longer have a micro USB port on the Assioma. Now the Assioma has a new connector that is positioned by a magnetic connection to charge your powermeter. However, it has another advantage that the micro USB port has been eliminated, now you have no risk of water or dirt getting into your sensor.
Software and connectivity
Another new feature is Bluetooth Smart connectivity. The Assioma powermeter features ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart Connection. So you have the possibility to connect the power meter with your bike computer, smartphone or sports watch. The ANT+ connection gives you balance, cadence, torque efficiency and pedal smothness. With the Bluetooth Smart connection you only get the balance and cadence displayed.
Favero is also launching the matching app. The app will be available for both IOS and Android. With the app you have the possibility to update the firmware via Bluetooth.
Weight and technology of the Assioma Powermeter
A further and for us and our customers telling point for the purchase decision is the weight. The total weight per pedal with battery is approx. 149.5g. For comparison, a pedal from the PowerTap P1 weighs 206g and with Garmin Vector 2 179g. This makes the Assioma Powermeter currently the lightest pedal powermeter on the market. You can operate the Assioma Powermeter between -10 °C and 60 °C. The Assioma also automatically compensates for temperature fluctuations. Favero sets a system weight of 125Kg for their Assioma powermeter.
Just like the bePRO Powermeter, the Assioma Powermeter is available in a single-sided and double-sided measuring version. The single sided power meter is called Assioma UNO and the double sided Assioma DUO.
Favero Electronics brings a breath of fresh air to the power meter market
The bePRO Powermeter from Favero Electronics was able to establish itself directly on the market and has found many fans. The Favero system is easy to install and uncomplicated to use. Once mounted, the bePRO Powermeter from Favero Electronics does its job reliably and delivers very precise readings.
The Italian company Favero Electronics has only been active in the cycling and power meter sector since 2015. But with a wealth of experience in the field of measurement and control technology in the sports sector, you were able to transfer your know-how to this area very quickly. In the company from the province of Treviso, high-end production technology and traditional handicraft, by specialized production technicians, play closely together.
Favero Electronics – a newcomer in the power meter business
The family business Favero Electronics has been successfully active in the sports business for over 30 years. Favero Electronics has been known for many years for electronic products in the sports and leisure sector. Up to now, they have been known for sports scoreboards in martial arts, fencing and volleyball as well as special measuring technology in fencing. The FIBA approved sports displays are in use in many sports halls and sports centres.
Design and technology
There is no denying that Favero products have a love of detail. In the technical specifications you can see the experience that the manufacturer brings from other areas of data acquisition in sports. The design of Favero products shows the passion with which the employees are at work. “We love experimenting and designing new solutions for the world of sports and sports lovers.” Favero stands for this statement. It is therefore more than natural that, in addition to the opinions of cycling experts such as professional athletes and coaches, the employees’ own experiences are also incorporated into the development of the products.
Favero power meter
The Italian manufacturer’s Assioma powermeters are also produced directly in Italy and have been competing with other big-name manufacturers like Garmin and PowerTap since 2015. Favero is now in its second generation with the Favero Assioma UNO and Favero Assioma DUO. The first generation was the bePRO Powermeter, which was renamed Assioma Powermeter in the second generation due to legal reasons.
The Pedalpowermeter offers the customer an enormous comfort during the assembly and the change between several wheels. Just like the Garmin Vector 3 or the PowerTap P2, the Favero Assioma Powermeter is a true plug and play system. In a very short time the Assioma Powermeter can be mounted and start the power controlled training on the road. The power meter is easily connected to the bike computer either via ANT+ or Bluetooth. The power meter is compatible with all cycling computers and fitness watches of the brands Garmin, Wahoo, O-Synce, and Lezyne.
