October 2017, The Netherlands...
A duo of entrepreneurs, one a triathlete and the other a road cyclist, are looking to buy an accurate and affordable power meter, but end up buying nothing. Their innovative minds become curious: is it theoretically possible to create the perfect power meter in an acceptable price range?
Good value for money
Co-founders Keesjan Klant and Woud Vleugel have a longstanding career in product design and electrical engineering. They discovered that the secret to an affordable power meter lies in mass-production of the individual units. In a groundbreaking paradigm shift, they cracked the code that the bigger players of the cycling industry had overlooked for years...
The most successful Kickstarter campaign of The Netherlands
Armed with a mission to sculpt the world's first mass-produced power meter, we took to Kickstarter and raised a total of $2 million. Having the support of almost 7,000 backers enabled us to push through with R&D, even when times got challenging.
Where we are today
It took us various cycles of ideation, redesigning and extensive testing before we arrived at the power meter of today. The final product is one that does us proud. It's a good-looking, highly accurate, mass-produced power meter that cyclists of all levels can afford. And that's how our story shall continue...
