My conclusion about the SRM Origin power meter
At SRM, a cycling museum is home to a collection of amiable inventors whose meticulousness ensures that they build unbeatable products. And the reputation of SRM sometimes makes some coaches still refuse to accept other measuring instruments for their athletes. I can certainly understand this: In my opinion, the quality of the data is simply higher with SRM power meters than with the competition. Reliability is also important: During the nine-month review of the new SRM Origin power meter on my Fuji SL 2018 and about 8000 kilometres, the new system did not suffer any failures. Not on everyday rides and also not on an almost 300 km long day trip from Aachen to the Dutch coast. The new SRM Origin was also convincing in terms of handling: Problems with the power supply, thanks to the recharge option? Never! And it is compatible with all standard bike computers via ANT+. There is also a high degree of flexibility that the Origin offers when it comes to changing chainrings: thanks to the 110x4 bolt circle, a huge number of chainrings fit. And weaknesses? To be honest, I don't see anything wrong with it. If aluminium is too heavy for you, upgrade to carbon. Just don't forget the charger cable when you travel, because SRM uses its own plug. Most importantly, I find it worth mentioning that SRM has broken down the supposedly final hurdle of not buying an SRM device: The charging. In this respect Schoberer Rad Messtechnik has done everything right. Again.
