Tech Randoms from the 2017 Tour de France
14 interesting tech observations from the Tour de
France, from power meters to wheels and wide tyres.
Shimano's latest Dura-Ace R9150 Di2 groupset, after being
launched last summer, is now a common sight in the peloton at this
year's Tour de France. This one was fitted to Peter Sagan's bike
and has the addition of a 4iiii power meter.
There are more power meter options these days, but the pros still
opt for the gold standard where they can, SRM's Power Meter. The
German company has upped its game recently and partnered with Look
to develop this carbon fibre power meter. Called the Origin, its
neat trick is the option to convert between 170, 172.5 and 175mm
crank lengths thanks to Look's Tri Lobe pedal insert.
