Cycling and Running Calibration with Your RPM2 System

When you receive your RPM² system, there are a few steps you need to take in order to get the most benefit out of your investment. A few of the things you will need to do when unboxing your product is download our app for Android or Apple and register your device. In the past, we have provided instructional blogs for these tasks and our YouTube channel features a wealth of videos on learning how to use both our footbeds and the application that accompanies them.

Before putting your RPM² footbeds into action, you will need to calibrate the device so that it can take accurate data customized to your needs. Calibrating your device is important for the product’s ability to measure your power. There are separate processes for calibrating force—one for cycling and one for running.

Cycling Calibration with Forced Pronation

Calibrating your RPM² system is essential for gathering accurate data on the power output of each leg when cycling. When calibrating, you will wear your RPM² inserts in your cycling shoes. Below is a step-by-step instructional video from our YouTube channel to help you calibrate your footbeds.


Running Calibration Force Sensitivity

As with the cycling feature of the power meter, measuring power output during running requires calibrating your footbeds. When calibrating force sensitivity, you will need to wear your RPM² inserts inside your running shoes and have your mobile application handy to complete the calibration exercise. For detailed instruction, refer to our YouTube video below.
