That's a touch on the high side. P2m type s Rotor 3D added 126g in compact. P2m has or had listings.
Interesting question and listed weights. So seem that less weight difference will be added with Favero Assioma pedals (108 gm vs my Look Blade 2 Ti (Favero Assioma are 300 gm, Look Blade 2 Ti 192 gm).
If we consider that i can remove the garmin cadence sensor, even less (dont know what is actual weight of Garmin Cadence Sensor plus rubbers).
And how much weight add Stages left crank vs regular crank?
And another thing that im wondering about pedal PowerMeters... Do they have any compromises in their primary function over regular pedals? (let's compare them to Look Blade 2 Ti).
Why im asking this?
1. Surface Contact Area - Look Blade 2 Ti have 700mm (same Time Xpresso).
If u analyze pictures of Assioma Favero and Garmin Vector 3, is more then clear that they have much less surface area (i guess one of the ways how to save some weight).
As i understund less surface contact area, less stable pedaling platform.
So how this relate in real world? Specially climbing efforts, or long distance riding? How big compromise is this?
2. Stack height - Assioma Favero have the same stack as Look Blade 2 Ti (10.5), but Garmin Vector 3 have 12.5
What is benefit of low stack height? And what is compromised here with Garmin's and 12.5 mm stack?
3. Advanced Cycling dynamics of Garmins over Assioma.
Everywhere i can read that this data is not too much important. But to me look that this advanced cycling analysis can help in determining the best cleat position, and not just cleat position. That can help in bike fitting and final adjustmens.
