INpower Flow 110BCD
Orient your training around pedal performance and learn how to race smarter You can improve your maximum sustainable output simply by fine-tuning your pedaling technique and orienting it to your position on the bike. The INpower Flow 110 gives you the most sophisticated power metrics in an elegant aero crank CNC-machined from aeronautic-grade 7055 aluminum. Determine where you exert the greatest force in a pedal rotation by conducting a TORQUE 360 pedal analysis via the INpower User Software. Inconspicuously integrated inside the crank axle, the INpower Flow's centered weight is out of sight for a more aero look and feel. Stiffer than any other aero crank on the market, the INpower Flow 110 saves you up to 6 seconds in a 40k TT.

Why Q-rings? Biomechanical studies indicate that the effort made with Q-Rings becomes a greater performance and pedaling feeling
more rounded and smooth due to their ability to make a better use of the strongest muscle groups while they also compensate the dead spot in pedaling. Q-Ring-Round Ring Comparison Far from feeling unusual, a Q-Ring feels much rounder than a round ring.
A spinscan analysis visualize a cyclists power delivery, with a bar graph indicating the variation from maximum to minimum
output and a polar graph showing the rotating shape of the power profile. By comparing the left hand Round chainring spinscan
and the right hand Q-Ring spinscan below, one can see that Q-Ring graphs are clearly smoother (less variation in torque in the bar graph)
and fuller (less of a peanut shape at the weakest point). Spinscan When one projects a polar plot of a typical spinscan over the varying drivetrain resistance of a 53t Q-Ring during its rotation,
the value of a Q-Ring is clearly visible: Maximum power is met with a “56,5t” Time trial sized chainring diameter and minimum power is met with a “50,4”
compact size chainring diameter. This variation creates the “perfect spin” we all aspire to, that simply isn’t possible with round chainrings.
This is because Q-Rings compensate for the weakest zone of the pedalling stroke and maximize use of the most powerful zone. Key benefits (based on ROTOR study)
All Q-ring TT’s were faster, with an average gain of 1.6 sec and 0.7 km/h (1.8%).
All Q-Ring TT’s generated more power, with average increase of 26.7 W (6.2%)
Reduced oxygen consumption and heart rate in submaximal tests
An immediate performance increase on switching from round rings to Q-Rings
An immediate performance reduction on switching back to round chainrings
It also appears that the more effort a cyclist exerts, the greater the benefit of Q’s
