A Revolutionary Way to Measure, Evaluate & Improve Cycling Performance
Exclusive to iBike, PowerStroke measures front-to-back and side-to-side wobble motion of the bike and then determines and quantifies the:
caused by the wobbling.
How does iBike PowerStroke Work?
PowerStroke takes advantage of the high-speed data bus design of the iBike Newton power meter, and the accelerometer and pressure sensors used exclusively by the iBike Newton.
iBike Newton records data 16 times per second – ten times faster than any power meter in the world.
This recording rate is so fast that motion can be determined even as the cyclist turns the bike crank.
PowerStroke data is processed on a Mac or PC , with new, iBike Isaac software version 2.0. Isaac 2.0 reports Newton power measurement and ride data, and adds PowerStroke measurement and analysis.
For the first time ever, on an outdoor bike ride, cyclists can measure their pedaling style, cycling performance, and body/bike movement.
PowerStroke technology quantifies the wasted watts, wasted tme & wasted motion.
It shows where to improve pedaling style, and quantifies improvements.
Any iBike Newton power meter with a PowerStroke firmware upgrade will record the data needed for your PowerStroke analysis.
Strain gauge sensors do not -- and cannot measure wobbling motions, and the wasted watts, motion, or time caused by them.

There are four parts to the iBike Isaac cycling software PowerStroke screen.
At the top is the iBike PowerStroke Wasted Motion Plot, showing how the cyclist’s motion moves side-to-side, and front-to-back, during the crank stroke.
