I have Favero Assiomas, one of the benefits is (like the new Garmin Rally) you can convert them between body types, so you can have “road” or “MTB” style pedals.
One of the benefits of pedal based power meters is that if you have multiple bikes they are really easy to switch between, so your big investment isn’t stuck on one bike or a pain to move.
I love the Faveros, they’re really well made, reliable as anything and rechargeable. The batteries last for ages, but then you just recharge them rather than replace, which is cheaper and nicely convenient.
@alchurch I constantly see people talking about road type pedals or pedals with platforms being more comfortable, but personally I just don’t see it.
I’ve got Look Keo type pedals and SPD-SLs, but these days I am running on only Shimano “MTB” SPDs on all of my bikes because I like the convenience of “walkable” shoes.
I’ve ridden both back-to-back to test and, personally, I don’t feel a difference in terms of control, comfort, stability or ability to put power down.
I’ve heard people say “Yeah, but it’s more noticeable if you put out more power”, well I can turn out ~1200w in a sprint and I’ve never felt the pedal… I’ve heard people say “Yeah, but it builds up over time, longer rides you’ll notice it”, but then I’ve ridden ~150 mile rides and not had any issue at all.
I would suggest the one thing that can make a difference here is that even though I ride MTB style shoes I have ones with a carbon sole-plate. If you wore fully flexible shoes then I could imagine the above complaints to be valid, but if your shoes are comparable, for me, I found no difference between the pedal types, but MTB SPDs are just massively more convenient because then you can have a shoe you can also just get off and walk around comfortably in.
