Power2Max is one of the leading cycling power meter manufacturers today. 

The founders, Marco Rockstroh and Andreas Görnitz have extensive experience in the German automotive industry before starting Power2Max in 2006. The objective is to develop a reliable sensor to measure cyclists’ power out under all weather conditions.

The first Power2Max power meter was the Classic (2010) which made its debut in Eurobike 2010. It’s then followed by Type S (2013), NGeco (2017), and NG (2017).

Today, Power2Max’s power meters have the widest crankset compatibility across all major crankarm brands for road, mountain, gravel, and track bikes. All Power2Max’s power meters are spider-based.

There are currently two power meter models available;

  • NG Road, the top-of-the-line model with +/1% accuracy.
  • NGeco Road, an affordable mid-range model with +/2% accuracy.

In this article, we’ll compare the NG Road and NGeco Road and explain the differences between each model.
