Reviewed - Hub Power Meters

HUB based power meters have been available for over a decade. For some people it's the obvious location for power metering as it's measuring forces from inside the rear wheel hub, driving the bike.  It's similar to measuring the power of a car on a rolling road.

A hub power meter provides a highly accurate measured TOTAL power output. Similar priced single sided power meters do provide a TOTAL power, but it's the measured power from ONE leg doubled.
