Favero, the Italian brand behind the three-bolt cleat Assioma power pedals, has just unveiled its first two-bolt power meter pedal for gravel and off-road use - presenting a direct challenge to the established players in the category

The goal was to be cheaper, lighter, more reliable and to feel more natural than the competitors already on the market. Let’s take a look at each of those in turn, and then get on to how the pedals have performed in practice

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
