Cycling Weekly Verdict

Look and SRM claim the same accuracy for Exakt as SRM’s crank-based power meters. That might be true if you get the physical set-up completely correct. But Exakt is a pernickety beast and if something’s not quite right, your results will be skewed. Coupled to the high price, it’s a difficult option to recommend.

Look paired up last year with power meter guru SRM to launch the Exakt pedal-based power meter.

SRM was the pioneer of cycling power measurement, but had previously only offered crank-based power meters. It has a large presence in the pro peloton and a reputation for accuracy, which Look and SRM have aimed to port to Exakt.
