Any news on this?
Things there a bit complicated, Chinese New Year is coming.
Their claim now: 8100 about 2 weeks, 9100 end of february.
looks like the most aliexpress shops change their offerings from axo to the xcadey spiders. They look really similar. :idea:
Sadly no M8100 in sight for now.
Some shops seems to lost thier dealership and switched to Xcadey.
They still sell well below RRP, so probably may get issues too, I suppose.

Something interesting on weibo posted by philip11 (the skypivot leader).
AXO is better than Quarq and even P2M.

edit: some asked about details, so

From left to right is:
ride with big ring, small ring, low cadence, high cadence, low power, high power, sprint, on bumpy road.

The reference is SRM look exakt pedals.

What is AXO2 on this chart ?
Is XCadey and AXO same thing or they are different ?

They tested two AXO power meters.

XCadey and AXO are two different power meters of different brands, and definitely from different factories. Sigeyi is the best Chinese brand of PM so far.

could you explain the chart?


Anyway I have a few powermeters, 2 quarq dzeros (on my competiton road bike and TT bike), one magene left side ultegra 6800 (swap it between winter bike and indoor trainer bike/endurance training bike, why separate training bike? because I already had this alu frame bike and use cheaper cassettes, chains and tyres on it, much cheaper in the long run!) and sigeyi AXO boost version on my mtb.
I cant compare it directly to other powermeter but by feel and heart rate comparison I can say that AXO and quarq are very similar. Magene left side seems to be showing 10-15 watts less consistently (I will test it on elite drivo trainer in a few days), its ok when its the only powermeter you use but when you have others then it might not be that great, Im thinking about buying another sigeyi spider to use on my indoor trainer bike and also to use the same one on my winter bike, which brings the question: has anyone used the sigeyi spider in cold and wet conditions?

My friend also ordered the sigeyi axo for his mtb, and he has assioma pedals so we can compare the 2 directly when his axo arrives.

edit: I have one issue with axo power meter though, when I intentionally push more with left foot or right foot for a while then quarq shows the L/R balance 70/30. When I repeat the same test on AXO then it shows 49/51 and even then it might not be in the right direction. I contacted my seller but so far no good answer, maybe its a faulty unit or software problem (though I have it updated to the latest version). Maybe someone can do the same test with their AXO? push the lap button and then intentionally pedal harder with right foot for a minute or so and see what it reports the L/R balance for the lap later.

Lol, what's the reference? I gave up the pm accuracy fight after many patents, but always curious to see what they use as truth because you can't run multiple spiders at once that's for sure.

However, I actually just came looking for the FCC ID of this meter. Anyone seen any backside pictures or are these, or are they just uncertified illegal imports?

could someone with a sigeyi power meter do a small L/R balance test?

push lap button, pedal but push much harder with just the right foot for 1 minute and end the lap. Check what it shows as the L/R balance.

I would like to know if my unit is faulty or if its just the software problem. It shows 50-50 or 49-51 for me with this test.

Thats 100% faulty. The other arm should be reading 0 on your computer.
