XCadey XPOWER-S Cycling Power Meter: Details // Data Review

  1. Hi Shane,

    I recently got a Rotor ALDHU 24mm with the XCADEY XPOWER-S 4 bolt 110 setup and I am going to run a comparison to my Elite Direto to test the accuracy. Wondering if you would like the data to analyze as a follow up to your review?

  2. Hello! You mentioned a reset procedure when a firmware updated failed on your xcadey power meter. Mine is also stuck, what was the reset procedure? Thanks!

    1. Hello, I have the same problem, I load a wrong firmware trying to pair two xcadeys. and now can´t connect to the app. I don´t know how to reset the xcadeys. Do you know any other way to reset?

      1. So if your device is stuck in DFU mode (the Bluetooth name would have DFU in it), you can long press the firmware upgrade button and you can upload new firmware to it. If you cannot connect to it via Bluetooth then I’m not sure. Hope that helps!

  3. heloo, my power meter stuck for update mode. says ” reinstall power meter battery’. but my power meter use rechargable battery. so cant be remove the battery for the reset. so how to reset the power meter ?

    thanks for your help

  4. reinstall power meter battery – just connect charger then disconnect.
    DFU: in the app click on top xcadey bar and select force DFU.

  5. I had an Xcadey on my mountain bike that worked great for over a year until it stopped working just outside of their 16 month warranty window. I tried calling, emailing and messaging Xcadey and their support was nonexistent. For comparison, 4iiii offers a 3 year warranty and they’ve worked flawlessly for me. These delicate strain sensors and electronics fail so it’s important to note which brands are willing to stand by their product after they sell it.
