The brand new Favero Assioma dual-sided power meter pedals are the seond iteration of power pedals that were formerly known as bePRO. Favero is the brand, bePRO was the name of the product but it appears they've gone for a rebrand for some reason or another, so the next gen are called Assioma.
They are very competitively priced at 799 euros, with a one-sided set also available for 499 euros, and as shown in the video you simply stick them on your bike, pair with your computer and go. To set crank length and perform firmware updates you download the new Assioma app, and you get two snap-on charge ports (a bit like some Garmin watches) to charge via USB.
Impressively they weigh just 151g per pedal, which is as light if not lighter than high-end carbon pedals with no power-measuring capabilities. The cleats are Keo compatible but are made specifically for the Assiomas, so you will want to use the ones in the box for the most precise fit.
All of the power measuring tech is packed in next to the pedal spindle, there are no extra parts or fiddly bits so they are very easy to transfer between bikes. The Assiomas are Ant+ and Bluetooth ready, while the bePROs only used Ant+. This means that you can use the new pedals on Zwift and other virtual training apps and transmit your data to your computer and the training programme at the same time.
It’s looking pretty promising for the Assiomas so far, but obviously what we’ll be judging them on is accuracy and that will require plenty of further testing, so make sure to like and subscribe to our Youtube channel, and check back on the road.cc review section for a full test report soon.
Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
