Favero Assioma Users

I agree when do the SLF training with the app i notice the L side is always higher than the right on TR. I haven’t tried with a Headunit like Garmin but I think you are right :+1:t2:

I absolutely love mine. I use them on a Peloton doing TrainerRoad workouts. (I work overseas and do all my training when I’m here on a peloton). I did a ramp test on the “new” equipment (two weeks after my previous which was done with a Stages single non-drive side power meter). I was 1 watt higher than my previous. When I get back to the US I will do some work with both power meters on my bike to compare.

I played with the cleats a bit more and got them to the point where the inside of my shoe does not rub the cranks when pivoted all the way in. The extra float compared to Shimano definitely is noticable, I can actually pivot my foot around while pedaling which I could not do to the same extent as with my SL. I’ll have to wait and see how this feels when out on the road especially when out of the saddle. I was toying with the idea of buying the 0* cleats and trimming them down to effectively have 3* or so (something between black and red) but probably overthinking things right now so I won’t bother.

First ride doing McAdie the pedals read 212w while the stages read 226, pretty sure I calibrated/offset both, L/R balance was 53-54/46-47

Second ride doing Antelope the pedals read 211w while the stages read 213w, definitely calibrated/offset both, L/R balance was recorded 54/46

Not sure if there was some settle period, or the Stages is inconsistent (more likely), or the pedals are wonky, but I’ve been chatting with one of our members here and the plan is to ramp test with the pedals tomorrow and then use the Stages to mirror my Assioma Powermatched workouts and see how they track.

You said this a couple of times, and it confuses me.

Maybe there is a different feel to them, and potentially a different rotation center point, but the stated rotation degrees are identical.

It confuses me also because they have the same stated number. I did read that the pivot point is different (shimano pivots in the middle while Look style pivots at the nose) so maybe that’s what makes it feel different.


That may be true, and possibly similar to the difference between the Shimano Yellow and Blue cleats that I shared here:

Exactly what is happening here I believe, so there is more side to side movement at the heel here despite the same advertised number. Granted I may get used to it before spring comes around, but i could see this potentially being better for out of the saddle where the shoe has move pivot instead of transferring the forces into the knee, but I don’t know. All I know is that it feels different, it literally feels like almost double the float from before.

Torque = force times moment arm, and power = torque times rpm. The pedal mesures the force, and calculates the torque (and hence the power, at a given cadence) based on the moment arm, the crank length in our case. At a given force and cadence, the longer the moment arm, the higher the power. Over-estimate the crank length, you will over-estimate the power.


Just using this example, it appears to make sense with the differences.

54% of 212 = 114
Stages L: 114wx2= 228

Your second example doing Antelope doesn’t quite line up with the above calculation though.

Left/right imbalance tends to disappear at threshold and above.

I am so sorry, my notification for this was lost in my email. Here is the link for this mod.


Anyone else have a situation where if they calibrate their assiomas through the TR software it gives a value of -1 but if I pair to my Wahoo headunit and do it I get a 0.

Not sure what these numbers even mean just that they’re different

Do you still get the ‘calibration successful’ message with the -1 result on your Wahoo? I was under the impression that we need a 0 for a successful cal, so I’m just curious if a -1 is also considered a success?

Also, you’re connecting to both with the same mode, or ANT+ on one and BLE on the other?

I use TR for zero offset indoors and my Garmin for outdoors, both connected via ANT+. Usually I always get a 0, but a couple of times I got an error, so I spin the crank and zero again.

I vaguely recall getting a -1 result at some point, I can’t remember the exact circumstances, but I think it may have been in the Favero App after a firmware update, which would have meant I was in BLE.

I connect the Favero to TR via BT through my Mac that I run it on. If I do the calibration through TR I get -1 in the TR program on the computer. But if I disconnect and calibrate them via my Wahoo I get 0. Turn off the wahoo, repair to TR, do their calibration at the same crank position (6:00 and 12:00) and still get a -1

Check out my post on this issue, which includes a reply from TR support:

Is this normal for unified L? Left pedal seems to have less charge than the right

Happens to me too. Hasn’t affected the pedals at all - I always charge at around 25%.

I did have one event where the right went completely flat for no apparent reason (had to switch to left only for that ride). I then charged it up again and the issue hasn’t returned.

@Cleanneon98 - I would hold off doing a Firmware upgrade on the pedals (just in case you were to have opened a support ticket and a FW upgrade was what is being suggested) … see my recent post with the issues I’m having.

Now, it goes without saying that just coz I have an issue that doesn’t indicate you/others will also … but I did want to share this (as I’m tracking all Assioma posts at the moment to see what other issues are being experienced … #desperatetogetminefixed :slight_smile: )

I haven’t opened a ticket cause I just figured more L side drain is to be expected using the unified L Channel but was wondering. I have no freezing or dropping issues to report

Thanks. I was going to juice them back up but I’ll wait a few more weeks and see how the battery usage is going forward
