The Power2Max NGeco was one of the products which caught our eye at Eurobike – and now we’ve had the unit arrive for review. The NGeco offers the tried-and-tested Power2Max crank-based platform for less than €500, so could this be all the power meter you need?
Let’s turn back the clock a minute. The NGeco arrived on the scene a year after the Power2Max NG, which in itself was the successor to the Type S. Got that? Whereas the fully-fledged NG offers a claimed +/- one per cent accuracy, the NG Eco pares that back to +/- two per cent. In reality, that’s plenty accurate enough for general use and is the standard by which we’ve been judging power meters for years.
The NGeco transmits basic power and cadence data out of the box but if you want to unlock more detailed data, including left/right leg power balance, pedal smoothness and torque readings, you’ll need to stump up and upgrade the unit’s software.
