Power Meter Pedals: Favero Assioma // Xpedo SPD Hack // Gravel Power!

Converting a set of Favero Assioma DUO power meter pedals into Shimano SPD compatible pedals for off-road/gravel grinding is possible! This is one of the best unofficial and warranty voiding hacks I’ve seen. In this video I cover the process from A to Z – including modification of my MTB shoes to ensure they have correct clearance from the Assioma pod.

  1. This seems so straight forward, so why is the manufacturer not doing this as an option?! It would seem that being the first one with an spd power meter on the market would result in major $$$$.

    1. I just got the stuff for the hack, having worked in product development as a career, the only thing that makes sense is they don’t feel comfortable telling people they may need to grind out part of their shoe to clear the power components. Probably lawyers put the stop on it.

  2. That makes sense. Thanks. This whole gravel push has such momentum that I just keep expecting a whole line of gravel related power gear, including pedals, and i keep being surprised at the lack of product.

  3. Hi,
    Would this work as well with Cranbrothers Candy or Eggbeater pedals for housing? I’m using those on my gravel bike and would love to go for power upgrade…

  4. Has anyone come up with a list of Xpedo pedals that work with this conversion? I know the M4, M8 and CXR but they are difficult to find here in the UK. What about the M3 and the M4-CR etc?

  5. IMHO Favero does not sell them as they would be incompatible with most shoes (how many would have the skill and will of modifying a new pair of shoes such that to have the right clearance with the pod?). I suspect most would return the pedals with lots of complaints…

  6. Is it possible to convert them into clipless flatpedals, for MTB?
    Or, even better, do this with Garmin Vector3 pedals that I already have?

  7. I did the conversion 8 months back and have a pair of Diadora MTB shoes and didn’t even have to make any adjustments to the shoes. I did find that the pedal body screw kept slow unscrewing itself so every 2 rides I had to open-up the end-cap and tighten it down again. I fixed that with some loctite and it has since worked flawlessly.
