(Update 26/01/18: You can read our full review of the Power2Max NGeco here)
Power2Max is attempting to shake up the power meter marked by launching the NG Eco, which starts at €490 for the spider-based used with an FSA Gossamer crankset.
The German brand has taken an innovative approach to releasing the NG Eco by incorporating software updates as a way of unlocking data features.
The trick is that the dual-sided capabilities of the NG Eco power meter are only fully usable if you buy the NG Eco upgrade pack via a software update. As a result, it means that once consumers have bought and installed the NG Eco device, it’s a simple case of updating the unit’s software to unlock the hardware’s true potential, instead of buying or adding new hardware.
