As of September 1, 2021, 4iiii has assumed support for Specialized Power Cranks powermeters.
Specialized Power Cranks are powered by 4iiii Powermeter technology, and other than the physical look of the powermeter, Power Cranks function the same as 4iiii Powermeters. Because of this, you can use all powermeter guidance contained in the 4iiii Knowledge Base to assist with your Specialized Power Cranks questions.
There are a few things to be aware of with your Specialized Power Cranks:
Specialized Power Cranks App:
The Specialized Power Cranks App is in the process of being discontinued. Your Specialized Power Cranks will continue to be supported by the 4iiii App, and the 4iiii App should be used exclusively going forward. The 4iiii App is available for both iOS and Android, and relevant 4iiii App User Guides can be found below:
If you have not yet, there are firmware updates available to install on your Specialized Power Cranks. These firmware upgrades are available only through the 4iiii App. It is important to install any and all firmware updates and on both cranks if you have a dual powermeter.
- If your powermeter is on firmware version 2.9.0, it will update to 2.11.0
- If your powermeter is on firmware version 4.0.0, it will update to 4.2.0
Pairing a dual powermeter:
If you have dual Specialized Power Cranks, it is important to pair them as a dual powermeter in the 4iiii App AFTER you have updated the firmware on both powermeters. To do this, add both powermeters to the 4iiii App, and tap 'Pair' at the bottom of the screen.
In order to read dual power on your cycling computer, you must first pair the powermeter as a dual powermeter in the 4iiii App. Do do this, connect both powermeters to the 4iiii App, and tap 'Pair' at the bottom of the screen. After they have been paired as a dual powermeter, you will only need to connect the left powermeter to your cycling computer, which will be identified by ANT+ ID (found in the app or on the side of the powermeter). The left powermeter acts as the transmitter, collecting the data measured from the right powermeter, combining it with the data measured at the left powermeter, and sending it to your cycling computer as one signal. On your cycling computer, you will then see cadence, total power, and L/R balance as metrics.
