If you’ve seen the Favero Assioma Duo pedal meter, but you like the Shimano SPD-SL pedal system, then today is your day. As of today, the Favero Assioma Duo-Shi is available for purchase, which is only sold as a cassette and allows you to bring your own pedal body to the table.
Instead of buying a complete pedal, the new model consists of two cartridges mounted in a pair of Assioma-Shi sensors. Once in your hand, provide the Shimano pedal body of your choice and install the cartridges. Favero does not include any pedal bodies with the product, but the Assioma Duo-Shi is compatible with Shimano PD-R8000, PD-R7000, PD-6800, PD-R550 and PD-R540 pedal bodies.
Given the current COVID-1
Unfortunately, if you have Assoma Duo pedals right now, this announcement does not mean that you can convert what you have, because even though the two cartridges look very similar, there are differences.
On the software side, the Assioma-Shi sensor undergoes another factory calibration for Shimano pedal body compatibility. There are also physical differences, the Q-factor has increased by 11 mm, and there is an extra oil holder attached to the shaft. All current usability is the same between the two options, but they are not cross-compatible. Changing pedal body compatibility means the need for a new set of cartridges.
Even if you are familiar with the current Look-compatible Assioma Duo system, you will be familiar with the new version. The claimed weight of the Assioma Duo-Shi without pedal bodies is 99g per side. Add a Shimano Ultegra PD-R8000 pedal body and the weight comes up to 157 g per side.
The Favero Assioma pedal-based power meter is often praised. We gave it five stars in our Favero Assioma review, with the only negative being the exclusive Look compatibility. With the announcement of Assioma Duo-Shi, Favero has addressed this and made it a good price. Get it today through official retailers or Favero website.
