Polar And LOOK Launch The World's First Pedal-Based Power Cycling System
Date:6/26/2012

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y. and NEVERS, France, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Polar (www.polarusa.com), the leader in heart rate monitoring and fitness assessment technology, together with LOOK, the inventor and leader in clipless pedals, announced today the launch and availability of the first clipless cycling pedals to measure cycling power output. The Polar LOOK Keo Power pedals measure an athlete's left/right balance and power output, and send the data directly to a compatible Polar cycling computer on the bike's handlebars. Sensors are integrated in the body of the pedal and the crank for maximum accuracy.

Keo Power provides instant feedback by measuring accurate power output in watts from both the left and the right pedal separately – which can be essential in correcting pedaling inefficiencies and imbalances or while recovering from an injury during training. The pedals also give information to calculate Cycling Efficiency Index value, which shows how efficiently cyclists convert their effort into power, propelling the bike forward. The value is calculated by dividing power output with total energy expenditure, which is determined by heart rate and personal data. Improvement in the value indicates improved performance economy.

"Polar and LOOK share a passion for innovation," said Tony Bass, Vice President of Sales for Polar USA. "LOOK is a brand dedicated to being the best in its category and we're confident that this collaboration and the launch of Keo Power will bring an unparalleled product and experience to ambitious cyclists who want to reach their maximum potential."

This state-of-the-art power measurement system comprises the light-weight Polar P5 power transmitters and LOOK Keo Power pedals. Easy to attach to cranks and switch between bikes, each Keo Power pedal comes with eight embedded strain gauges for extreme p
