Torque efficiency // Read Left-Right Power Meter [Feature Request]

My pedal-based powermeter (and I suspect some crank-based power meters) calculates torque efficiency and left-right balance. Can you include these as displays in the app while riding so we can focus on improving it. This can also serve as the center for some specific training with drills designed specifically to improve that.

Hey! Im editing your title as a ‘Feature Request’ so that other athletes can contribute.
Will pass this along to the team for consideration. Thanks! :+1:

This likely fall under the “Cycling Dynamics” discussion, where we have a couple of existing threads for Feature Requests. Not sure if you want to merge them or keep them separate:

(Top 2 in this result, but it has been mentioned other times as well)

No preference here, whichever will help athletes find it most effectively! Thanks, Chad.

Just a quick follow up, a colleague just directed me tho this thread as well, where Nate addresses our stance on this data, and our prioritization in incorporating it! Worth a look:

Thanks for changing topic to make it more relevant.
Sigh…
Ok, I get L/R balance, but several workouts has drills that focus on the quadrants to improve efficiency (which impacts torque efficiency), this data can be very useful to see if you’re getting it right, both while doing the quadrant drills, as well as in general to see if the drills are paying off while cycling under low/medium/high power output and where you should put more emphasis on improving the pedal stroke. And even so, while doing drills for one leg, the L/R balance should indicate that as well, the leg you’re “drilling” should at that time provide more power, even if it’s the non-dominant leg.
But it’s easy for me to dream. Thanks for listening.

Sure! Makes sense for sure. Hopefully it gets worked into the roadmap after some higher-priority releases! Cheers.
