The next innovation in cycling power is here, introducing Garmin’s Rally Power Meter pedals, helping you crush it on road, gravel or trails and never stop cycling.
Training using power is generally considered more useful than simply going on heart rate and speed, because it gives you a better overall picture of what’s going on in a ride and allows you to train more accurately in your zones.
In the past 12 months in particular, the number of riders training with power using Zwift has shot up, so this new release is likely to appeal to a broader range of riders than ever before.
There are three models of Garmin Rally pedals in the range:
- The Garmin Rally XC200 and XC100
- The Garmin Rally RS200 and RS100
- The Garmin Rally RK200 and RK100
Garmin Rally XC200 and XC100
Designed especially for off-road riders, the dual-sensing Rally XC200 features SHIMANO SPD cleat compatibility and measures total power, cadence and left/right balance and even monitors how you apply power throughout the pedal stroke.
For single-sensing total power and cadence, check out Rally XC100. These durable pedals install like any other pedals and are easy to transfer between bikes.
Garmin Rally RS200 and RS100
Designed for road cyclists, the dual-sensing Rally RS200 features SHIMANO SPD-SL cleat compatibility and measures total power, cadence, left/right balance, seated versus standing, platform centre offset and power phase
If you just want single-sensing total power and cadence, then check out the Rally RS100. You can get instant and accurate power measurements readouts on your compatible Garmin device or smartphone and review it once you’ve had a post-ride meal on the Garmin Connect™ app.
Garmin Rally RK200 and RK100
Finally the the dual-sensing Rally RK200 features LOOK KEO cleat compatibility and measures total power, cadence and left/right balance.
Again, for single-sensing total power and cadence, check out Rally RK100.
There’s never been more opportunity to capture your in-ride data, and we reckon this new range of pedals is going to be hugely popular with riders who want to dive deep into their rides for performance gains, improving their training programme or just because they’re hungry for more ride data to upload to Strava.
