I've just backed this at £250 for dual sided.
Finally released some power numbers, albeit not exactly detailed but seems to run consistently compared to Stages & Powertap of fist sight.

Will sell my Quarq 53/39 to get my Sram Red 52/36 back on that came with my bike.

Hopefully it works and I'll be happier on the hills!

Has anyone else seen or backed this?

Yes... and if it works will sell my Stages

I looked into this a bit and think that this has a real chance to be the game changer in power meters. I suspect that at the begining the software will be buggy and clunky, however, with the funding that they have received this had a real chance

Risk is that one of the big players, Quark, Garmin, SRM etc will buy the company to kill it it does work as described

They reckon November delivery so Iíll be the guinea pig.

Iíll run it alongside my Quarq to start with to compare.
I donít care TOO much if it runs higher or lower, as long as it is consistent.

I did see it, but earlier in the year it looked a bit of a risk, so I just got the Assioma Duo instead - which will be slightly less of a faff to move between bikes tbh, and won't add a lot to the Q-Factor like the IQ.

Having seem the tales of woe with Stages in the early years, I'd rather go with something established and no widely reported gremlins. Hence why I avoided Vector 2/3 too!

They seem to be claiming the cheapest and most accurate (1%) PM going? Most others I have seen claim a 1.5-2.5% accuracy.

Slowtwitchers will be crying about the offset on their q factor Smile

Lots of people questioning the Q factor but I ride a TT bike, road bike & MTB so they will be different anyway. A winter on the turbo will get me used to it.
I'm not a hugely strong biker but my form is fairly good, hopefully the extra 1.6cm doesn't send my knees all 'Sanders'

I'm sure one of them is rummaging through their trigonometry text books as we speak, to work out how much they're going to have to lower their seat height because of it.
