The Kayak Power Meter & the Kayak Power Meter Pro are the world's first kayaking power meters for kayakers.
Attach your blades to the carbon fiber, adjustable, split-shaft of the Kayak Power Meter (Pro) and your power output, power balance (left stroke vs. right stroke) and stroke-rate will be displayed in real-time on an ANT+ display e.g. Garmin Forerunner 310XT, Samsung Galaxy S3, Garmin EDGE500 etc.
The Kayak Power Meter (Pro) works exactly like an ANT+ cycling power meter. Use the product with an ANT+ head-unit and you can record your power, power balance and stroke-rate alongside your boat speed and heart rate. Software such as Garmin Connect™ or TrainingPeaks™ can be used to view your data and analyze your performance.
You have a choice between two standard shaft types of different stiffnesses - allowing you to select a shaft stiffness that suits you best. Alternatively, if you have a specific stiffness requirement you can choose to send us a shaft - we will then use this shaft for your Kayak Power Meter (Pro) order (conditions apply).
The most popular options include the Garmin™ EDGE500, EDGE510, EDGE800 and EDGE810; Garmin™ Forerunner 310XT and 910XT; Samsung™ Galaxy S3, S4 and Note 3; Suunto Ambit2 and Ambit 2 S; Sony Xperia™ Active, Z1 and Z Ultra. Visit the ANT+ directory for an up to date list of all compatible products.
The Kayak Power Meter (Pro) is compatible with blades from most blade manufacturers including Bracsa, GUT, and Jantex. A key requirement is that the blade is designed to fit a circular shaft.
There is a good chance that your existing blades will fit a Kayak Power Meter (Pro) - but if you are unsure, simply send an email with your blade type to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will let you know.
