Wahoo Announces Speedplay Pedal-Based Power Meter

Wahoo today announced the first major refresh to the Speedplay brand since it acquired it back in September of 2019.

Wahoo refined the whole line with lower stack height and better aerodynamics. The Speedplay line includes two cleat options: Standard Tension – included with AERO, NANO, ZERO, POWRLINK ZERO – and Easy Tension (included with COMP). Both cleat options are compatible with all pedals in the new Speedplay lineup and are backward compatible with all earlier Speedplay Zero models.

Performance upgrades include adjustable float on all cleats from 0-15 degrees, sealed bearings with no need for regular maintenance, and increased durability through a revised pedal body. Wrench flats have been eliminated in favor of installation via a hex wrench. The ZERO is also available in four spindle lengths from Speedplay dealers and fit specialists to ensure that all rider fit needs are covered.

POWRLINK ZERO

The PowerLink Zero is SpeedPlay and Wahoo’s first entry into the power meter market. But power isn’t new to Wahoo since they have been doing power measurements on their smart trainers and bike for years. But for now, Wahoo is keeping everything undercover. From the blackout picture they included in their press release, we can assume that it will have a pod design similar to the Assioma Pedals power meter with lights and everything.

Wahoo plans to have the PowerLink Zero available this summer. No information on pricing yet.

AVAILABILITY

The COMP ($149.99), Speedplay ZERO ($229.99), Speedplay NANO ($449.99), and Speedplay AERO ($279.99) are available for purchase today from Wahoo dealers and WahooFitness.
