Thinking of upgrading your Praxis Works crankset with a power meter?

There are two options for you to consider;

  • Spider-based
  • Pedal-based

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

Spider-based power meters

Power2max NG for Praxis Works
Power2max NG for Praxis Works

The only spider-based power meter option for Praxis Works is from Power2max;

  • Power2max NG Road, the top-of-the-line model with ±1% accuracy, rechargeable battery, and advanced power metrics.
  • Power2max NGeco Road, a mid-range model with ±2% accuracy and uses a CR2450 coin battery.

The latest Praxis Works cranksets come in a modular setup consisting of the 3-bolt crankarms, axle, and direct mount LevaTime 2 chainring. This includes the Alba, Zayante Carb-S, and Zayante Carbon crankarms.

You’ll need a new set of chainrings from a traditional 5-bolt BCD 110/130 or 4-bolt Shimano to replace the direct mount chainrings.

Pedal-based power meters

For pedal-based power meters, you can choose between;

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

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