LED TUTORIAL

The POWERLINK LEDs blink to indicate the following functions. As a dual-sided power meter, the left pedal acts as the master and connects automatically to the right pedal, by default.

Left Pedal

  • Slow blue blink: searching for ELEMNT/phone (turns off after 30 seconds)
  • Fast blue blink: connecting to ELEMNT/phone
  • Solid blue: connected to ELEMNT/phone (turns off after 30 seconds)

Laden

  • 3 red flashes, repeating: low battery (less than 15% remaining)
  • Slow green flashing: laden
  • Solid green: fully charged

ENSURE HIGHEST POWER ACCURACY

Calibrating from the Wahoo App:

  • First, check that you’re using the latest firmware version
  • Upon initial setup and with the pedals attached, perform 2-3 quick standing track starts (by simply pedaling hard from a standstill) before initial calibration to ensure proper mechanical seating and settling to ensure the pedals perform as they would in regular use
  • In the Wahoo Fitness app, connect to POWRLINK by clicking Edit to the right of LINKED SENSORS on the home page, then using the Add New Sensor button to find your power meter
  • If you’ve already paired your power meter, click on the linked sensor from the homepage and scroll down to tap Calibrate. Confirm your crank length in the app, then perform a Zero Offset Calibration following the instructions displayed.

Calibrating From ELEMNT Bike Computers:

  • First, check that you’re using the latest firmware version
  • Upon initial setup and with the pedals attached, perform 2-3 quick standing track starts (by simply pedaling hard from a standstill) before initial calibration to ensure proper mechanical seating and settling to ensure the pedals perform as they would in regular use
  • Next, simply follow the steps outlined in the article: How do I calibrate a Power Meter with the ELEMNT?

CLEAT ASSEMBLY & MAINTENANCE

CHOOSE THE SHIMS FOR THE BASE PLATE THAT BEST FIT THE SOLE OF THE SHOE

5-F and 5-R Shims ship pre-installed to the Base Plates, but can be substituted with the Blue 6-F and 6-R Shims.

Extra Shims may be required between 5-F/6-F Shims and the sole of the shoe.

Achtung: The Base Plate/Shim Combo may not create a “perfect” fit to the bottom of the shoe, but for best results it is important to use the Shims that provide the “best” fit.

SCREW THE BASE PLATE TO THE SHOE USING THE BASE PLATE SCREWS

Base Plate Screws ship in two lengths: (Short/Black & Long/Silver)

Use the shortest screws that allow at least five full turns of engagement with the socket in the sole of the shoe.

Set the desired fore-aft position then tighten the Base Plate Screws.

Recommended tightening torque: 4 Nm.

FIT THE CLEAT SURROUND AROUND THE BASE PLATE

Cleat Surrounds are labeled “L” or “R”.

FIT THE PROTECTOR PLATE TO THE SPRING & HOUSING

Spring & Housings are labeled “LEFT” or “RIGHT”. Protector Plates are not labeled.

The Spring & Housing ships pre-assembled to the Protector Plate. If they have separated, gently snap them together using the two small tabs as a guide.

SCREW THE ASSEMBLY TO THE BASE PLATE USING THE PROTECTOR PLATE SCREWS

Install the Protector Plate Screws using a “Double X Pattern” (shown below). Loosely engage all four Protector Plate Screws.

Set the desired left-right position then tighten the Protector Plate Screws. Recommended tightening torque: 2,5 Nm.

ADJUST THE LIMIT SCREWS TO SET THE DESIRED FLOAT

Tighten the Limit Screws to reduce the amount of float (“heel movement”) experienced by the foot while pedaling.

Housings are labelled “Heel In” & “Heel Out” to guide which Limit Screws to adjust.

Preferred float range is unique to each rider. If you are unsure of your float preference, begin with medium float and adjust as needed.

Hinweis: Do not unscrew the Limit Screws from the Housing when adjusting float, and do not further tighten the Limit Screws once they have made contact with the tip of the Spring.

FIT THE CLEAT COVER OVER THE EDGES OF THE PROTECTOR PLATE

Cleat Covers are labeled “LEFT” or “RIGHT”.

Grip the shoe and apply force with the palm of the hand to each of the four corners to ensure that the Cleat Cover has properly covered the edges of the Protector Plate.

The Cleat Cover should fit flush to the Cleat Surround when installed correctly.

Hinweis: Failure to properly complete this step may result in the Cleat Cover falling off.

APPLY PTFE DRY LUBE TO THE SPRING (OPTIONAL)

Reduce the engagement force required to clip into the pedals by applying a small amount of “PTFE Dry Lube” to the Spring. Wipe away any excess lube.

ENSURE CLEARANCE BETWEEN SHOES AND POD

Use the spacer between the Base Plate and Housing to provide clearance for your shoes if they come into contact with the Power Pod. DO NOT use the pedals if your shoe comes in contact with the Power Pod. This will void the warranty.

CLEAN CRANK ARM THREADS AND APPLY A SMALL AMOUNT OF GREASE

Use a cloth or brush to remove old grease before applying new grease.

IDENTIFY THE LEFT AND RIGHT PEDALS

The “wahoo” logo reads left-to-right to help identify each pedal (shown below).

Right Pedal

Left Pedal

Hinweis: If necessary, use the provided washers to allow for at least 1mm space between the POWRLINK ZERO power pod and the crank arm.

THREAD THE PEDALS ONTO THE CORRECT CRANK ARM

Use an 8mm Allen Wrench to ensure a snug fit.

Recommended tightening torque: 30 Nm.

UNDERSTANDING CYCLING POWER METRICS

To get the most from your power meter, it’s important to understand the metrics available. The following list defines each of these metrics to help you power through like a pro:

  • Leistung: This is a constant snapshot of the energy you’re expending to ride at any given moment. It is measured in Watts, and represents Energy over a period of time. (1 second or 3 second)
  • Functional Threshold Power (FTP): Measured in watts, FTP is the average power that a rider can produce over the course of an hour.
  • Average Power: This is the total energy (Power) expenditure for a workout, divided by the duration of the selected period (workout or lap).
  • Normalized Power (NP)*: is a method to measure the effect of more intense periods on the overall workout. It is calculated through an algorithm that looks at rolling averages in power over the duration of the workout and is thought to be a better measure of the physiological cost of a workout than Average Power, as it takes into account the variability in workout effort.
  • Intensity Factor (IF)*: This is calculated by dividing NP by FTP (Functional Threshold Power) for the workout.
  • Training Stress Score (TSS)*: Composite score derived by multiplying IF x duration of the workout.
  • Variability Index: A way to measure how smooth or “variable” power output is during the ride. It is calculated by dividing Normalized Power by Average Power. Sprints or climbing efforts will add variability to your workout.
