Pedals come with cleats and a set of AAA batteries, after using these for the past 4 months I have just replaced the batteries as of last week.
I first want to start with saying that Amazon is fantastic with returns. My first set of pedals I got were defective. One pedal was showing 100% battery and the other read 25% even when switching batteries. I also noticed that that pedal was starts to overheat and get warm to the touch. I immediately knew that there was something not right. I got on Amazon printed an return label and shipped them back. I received the first set of pedals at my door on a Thursday, I returned them on Friday, and the replacement pedals were on my door Saturday.......WOW!!
I called power tap to ask them if this was something that they had ever heard of and they said yes.. It was a very rare occurrence. Even the best engineered stuff has glitches, so I'm not docking them for a faulty pedal, I would even go so far as give them an extra star for the crazy fast replacement. I also asked power tap about the app on the iPhone, apparently when you try to update the firmware...yes the pedals are wirelessly updateable, a message would say YES there is a firmware update, but then would pop up with an error message saying that there was no device detected. Power tap confirmed that this was a software glitch with Apple but the current version was installed 30.025.....I think, they said this didn't affect the app or the pedals at all and just ignore it and they are working on a fix.
Using these are simple. Just install the batteries, screw the pedals on, set your crank length, perform a "0" offset and you're ready to go.
I have been using Speed Play Nanogram pedals and they are pretty much the lightest pedals in existence, so I was concerned about the weight but so far I haven't noticed the extra 250g or so.
Clearance for some might be an issue if you don't have a good habit of keeping your outside leg down in a turn or pedaling through a turn but with good habits this shouldn't ever be a problem.
The pedals are virtually weatherproof and are tested to be waterproof and sealed for long life.
When installing the batteries take care that the caps to the battery case are soft aluminum and can damage easily if your Allen wrench isn't the proper size.
Love the pedals and the left and right measurement and the ability to update as new features are avalable. Probably the most versital, easy to install pedals avalable.
They also communicate with both Bluetooth and ANT+ so you're covered there.
Mobile - i.e., non-bike specific
must change batteries - I can envision someone stripping the access bolt
Non-Look standard - uses Wellgo clip pattern...similar but not quite the same
Rechargeable option (install rechargeable batteries and plug-in...use standard batteries in a pinch)
I purchased as soon as these pedals showed on Amazon. Initially the Apple app had issues connecting with the pedals but firmware updates have resolved this problem.
Pedal output seems to be reasonable when I started using a Kickr Snap the power numbers matched pretty well. I find the P1's much more stable than the Snap, which is variable due, I think, to temperature. For the most part not much trouble clicking in but wish for a Speedplay version as I find the click-in process mush easier.
Overall a great purchase if you like to review the numbers. Due to newer competition in power meters, if PowerTap lowered the price to $800 or $900 it becomes a no brainer.
