Favero is an Italian manufacturer of single and dual sided pedal powermeters. They enter the powermeter market in 2015 with the bePro Powermeter. The bePro Powermeter enjoyed great popularity, although the assembly was still somewhat complex. 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 mount and measures power with a very high accuracy.
You can find all Favero Assioma powermeters and Assioma accessories / spare parts in our powermeter shop powermeter24.com. The Favero Assioma powermeters now play in the same league as the Garmin Vector Powermeter and the Powertap Pedalpowermeter. 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 the program. 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 par.
Favero Electronics - the bePRO Powermeter
With the bePRO Powermeter, Favero Electronics has 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 the 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 feature ANT+ technology, which allows the powermeter to be connected to almost any ANT+ bike computer. Favero offers a one and two sided powermeter. The difference between the two powermeters from Favero Electronics is that the single-sided powermeter is only installed on the left pedal. With the double-sided powermeter from Favero the measurement technology is integrated on both sides.
With the bePRO S (single leg model), only the applied force from the left leg is measured. The values are then doubled so that the rider gets a total value of both on the bike computer. With the bePRO (double-sided model), the applied force from both legs is measured separately and also displayed separately on the cycling computer. The unilateral power meter can be upgraded to a bilateral power meter with the Favero upgrade kit.
Successor of the bePRO - Assioma Powermeter
Favero Electronics launches the successor of the bePRO power meter. 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 will appeal to you with its new functions and quality and convince.
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 special tools or mounting stickers. You only have to screw the Assioma to the crank arm and you are directly "ready to go". The mounting 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 placed in position via a magnetic connection to charge your powermeter. However, it has another advantage that the micro USB port has been abolished, now you no longer have the risk of water or dirt can penetrate into your sensor.
Software and connectivity
Another new feature is the Bluetooth Smart Connection. The Assioma Powermeter has the ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart Connection. So you have the possibility to connect the powermeter with your bike computer, smartphone or sports watch. The ANT+ connection transmits you the balance, cadence, torque efficiency and "pedal smothness" (round kick). 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
Another and for us and our customers telling point for the purchase decision is the weight. The total weight per pedal with battery is about 149.5g. For comparison, a pedal of the PowerTap P1 weighs 206g and Garmin Vector 2 179g. This makes the Assioma Powermeter currently the lightest pedal powermeter on the market. You can use 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 version. The one-sided powermeter is called Assioma UNO and the two-sided Assioma DUO.
Favero Electronics brings a breath of fresh air to the powermeter market
The bePRO power meter from Favero Electronics was able to establish itself directly on the market and has found many fans. The system from Favero 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 thanks to a wealth of experience in the field of measurement and control technology in the sports sector, they were able to transfer their know-how to this area very quickly. At the company from the province of Treviso, high-end manufacturing technology and traditional manual work by specialized production technicians play closely together.
Favero Electronics - a newcomer in the power meter business
The family business Favero Electronics is already over 30 years successfully active in the sports business. The company Favero Electronics has been known for many years for electronic products in the sports and leisure sector. Among other things, they have been known for sports scoreboards in martial arts, fencing and volleyball, as well as special measurement technology in fencing. The FIBA approved sports scoreboards are used in many sports halls and sports centres.
Design and technology
You can't deny that Favero products have an attention to detail. In the technical specifications you can see the experience that the manufacturer brings from other areas of data collection in sports. The design of the 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. Therefore, it is more than natural that the development of the products, in addition to the opinion of cycling experts such as professional athletes and coaches, the own experiences of the employees flow.
The Assioma power meters of the Italian manufacturer are also produced directly in Italy and have been in competition with other well-known manufacturers such as Garmin and PowerTap since 2015. The company Favero is in the second generation with the Favero Assioma UNO and Favero Assioma DUO. The first generation represented the bePRO power meters, were in the second generation, but then due to naming rights reasons in the Assioma power meters, renamed.
The pedal powermeters offer the customer a huge convenience when mounting and switching between multiple bikes. Just like the Garmin Vector 3 or the PowerTap P2, the Favero Assioma Powermeter is a true plug and play system. In no time at all the Assioma Powermeter can be mounted and start the power controlled training on the road. The powermeter is easily connected to the bike computer via ANT+ or Bluetooth. The power meter is compatible with all Garmin, Wahoo, O-Synce and Lezyne bike computers and fitness watches.
