Since it represents an update to one of the most popular, affordable, and reliable meters available, it's a combination you'll be seeing a lot of from Paris to Kona to your own bottom bracket. As with the rest of the DZero line, the Red model still incorporates five strain gauges strategically placed throughout the spider in order to measure the Newton meters you're throwing into the pedals, and--except for the alloy spider--it features the same Exogram carbon crank arms and graphical treatment as the standard Red crank. It's also still got the same claimed accuracy of /- 1. 5%, so its numbers are 0. 5% more accurate than most meters, but the new design requires less correction in order to maintain accuracy in drastic temperature changes. Fewer corrections mean the latest SRAM Red power meter model also better rations battery life than the previous generations, though when the battery does go out, you can still change it without tools or having to ship the whole thing to the manufacturer.

Even if it's just coasting for a few seconds or toggling through your head unit to the proper option, it can still be the difference between winning and losing. It's also obnoxious as hell. The DZero is equipped with an auto-adjust schedule based on a constellation of around 10,000 data points that chart how the unit responds to temperatures ranging from zero to 130 degrees Fahrenheit.
