Looking to upgrade your Easton crankarms with a power meter but need help determining the suitable one?

Easton manufactures two crankarm models, EC90 SL (carbon) and EA90 (aluminum). There are two power meter options for these crankarms;

  • Spider-based
  • Pedal-based

In this article, we’ll explore the three options in detail.

Spider-based power meters

Power2max NG Road for Easton
Quarq DZero for Specialized crankarm

Three spider-based power meters fit an Easton EC90 or EA90 crankarm;

  • Power2max NG Road, top-of-the-line model, ±1% accuracy with temperature compensation and automatic zero offset.
  • Power2max NGeco Road is a mid-range and more affordable model with ±2% accuracy and uses a coin CR2450 battery.
  • Sigeyi AXO is the best budget option with features found in mid to high-end models.

Both Power2max models are available in 110 or 130 BCD for a 5-bolt chainring or 110-4S for a 4-bolt Shimano chainring. The Sigeyi AXO is only available in 110 BCD. The Sigeyi option would limit chainring sizes to 52/36T or lower.

Pedal-based power meters

  • Garmin Rally RS (Shimano) or RK (Look)
  • SRM Exakt

Pedal-based power meters are the easiest to install by just swapping out the existing pedals.
