Garmin introduces the Rally power meters

Rigorously tested pedal series introduces compatibility with SHIMANO SPD-SL and SPD cleats for on- and off-road riding.

Garmin Southern Africa has announced the Rally™ series of power meters. Purpose-built, the sleek pedals measure total power, cadence and advanced cycling dynamics, including left/right balance, power phase and more on any ride – from road to mountain to gravel.

Designed with sensors housed in the pedals, the Rally power meters deliver reliable, accurate data on every training session. With the Rally RK200, Rally RS200 and Rally XC200 dual-sensing pedal-based power meters, cyclists can see right and left leg data metrics independently. Measuring cadence, total power, left-right balance and advanced cycling dynamics, the dual-sensing pedals show cyclists how and where they are producing power to help them understand their specific strengths and weaknesses to improve their pedaling form. The dual-sensing pedals also track time spent seated versus standing so riders can gauge position effectiveness and where power is applied on the pedal to ensure proper cleat position.

The single-sensing Rally RK100, Rally RS100 and Rally XC100 use the forces detected on the left pedal to measure both cadence and power and can easily be upgraded later to the dual-sensing system.

 

Riders can get the most from their training by pairing the Rally power meters with compatible Edge® cycling computers and the Garmin Connect™ app to seamlessly upload data and update software. The Rally power meters are also compatible with popular indoor training platforms, including the Tacx Training app, Zwift, TrainerRoad and more.

The Rally pedals, which install like any other pedal and can be quickly swapped between bikes, feature up to 120 hours of battery life, allowing riders to train for weeks or possibly months at a time. To keep cyclists riding year-round on- and off-road, the spindle is uniquely designed to be transferable between different Rally pedal bodies. Available now, the dual-sensing pedals range in price from R20 399 to R22 499, while the single-sensing pedals range in price from R11 999 to R12 999.

this totally makes sense on a road bike to me, but the beating mtb cleats in particular take...i'm not so sure a 11-20k piece of kit seems like a good idea lol. They accuracy of any sensitve measuring device becomes questionable once  smashed against a rock a few times.

I can't wrap my head around the price tag on these pedals. Obviously there will be okes with justified arguments but I personally feel that the cycling industry has gone mad.

Does what that much cheaper power meters don't do?

You know the FCC ID is precisely the same as the Vector 3–which means the internal electronics are the same as the Vector 3's and that what you're getting are the new battery doors and ther interoperability between the different cleat types.

I have road power pedals but I don’t have the balls to drop that much cash on MTB power pedals that are gonna get bashed up. I’d much rather go crank based PM for MTB.

Darren Robertson, May 01 2021 08:11

Unless one was to use the MTB pedal on a gravel grinder as an example… 🤷🏻‍♂️

Hopefully they have addressed all of the battery compartment issues that were present on the Vectors. I wouldn't touch these until there has been some real-world usage and testing.

Who's the chick on the tacx indoor trainer?............

can someone please tell her to put on some socks...

She's clearly a tri-ath-a-lete, Zone3 is a known brand for their sport.

Dof question time:

 

Will these off road spd type PM pedals work only with a Garmin computer... or can you use another make for example M460 Polar?

bleedToWin, May 07 2021 01:14

Uses a open protocol. Any head unit that supports PM will see it.

Yeah these talk over ANT+ and BT so any head unit that's compatible with power,

 

However, the LOOK Exact + PC8 bundle is a similar price to the Rally + Edge 1030 and the PC8 is lot more reliable

This I find very interesting, if the FCC ID is the same then as you say, the electronics are the same.

Werent there a bunch of issues with the Vectors?

There were.  My understanding is that the concerns were primarily related to the battery door.
