THE IBIKE NEWTON POWERSTROKE
The iBike Newton PowerStroke is the world’s only power meter that measures power AND helps you pedal more economically.
And at $699, it is less expensive than any competitive power meter and cycling computer…anywhere.
Only the iBike Newton PowerStroke has a microcomputer that delivers power measurement, power training programs and power testing in one super-light unit, with the easiest-to-read display around.
We’re often asked, how does iBike Newton PowerStroke work? Where are the strain gauges? Simply, the iBike Newton uses advanced accelerometers and pressure sensors from the space program to measure your power and pedaling motion.
The iBike Newton PowerStroke is a power meter and more. It is a world class cycling computer. It is incredible software. It is a personal trainer that tests your limits and then improves them.
All in one unit. All for one purpose. To help you get more results and more fun in your cycling.
RISK FREE TRIAL
If you’ve never trained or cycled with power, you are missing out on the most important accessory you can have on your bike. No other bike component–wheels, frame, helmet, you name it–will improve your cycling as much or as quickly.
And no power meter offers you as much capability and flexibility as the iBike Newton.
We are so confident that you’ll love the iBike Newton, and so convinced that you will love training and riding with power, that we offer all of our website customers a no risk guarantee:
Try the iBike Newton for 30 days. If for any reason you don’t like it, return it in good condition for a full refund. Details are here.
Sure, you can spend much, much more to try out a power meter. But we are not aware of ANY competitor that lets you try theirs risk-free.
REVOLUTIONARY POWERSTROKE™ TECHNOLOGY
iBike Newton PowerStroke
A Revolutionary Way to Improve Cycling Performance
iBike PowerStroke exclusively identifies inefficient pedaling strategies and movement patterns that reduce cumulative power while pedaling.
Trainers and labs don’t simulate “real life” riding conditions. Riding and racing is done pulsing pelotons, fast breaks, and steep mountain passes. But as we pedal, our bodies wobble on the bike, and our pedal crank turns unevenly. Both contribute to inefficient movement patterns.
In fact, research indicates cyclists experience a 17%-27% power loss due to Counterproductive Pedaling.
For the first time in history, you can measure your pedaling strategies and movement in the only place that really matters – the streets!
The iBike Newton PowerStroke improves Pedaling Efficiency through biofeedback training and data analysis of power distribution pedaling.
PowerStroke technology quantifies: Wasted Power, Wasted Time & Wasted Motion. It shows where to improve pedaling style, and quantifies improvements.
How Does PowerStroke technology work?
PowerStroke takes advantage of the high-speed data bus design of the iBike Newton power meter, and the accelerometer and dynamic pressure sensors used exclusively by the iBike Newton. 3 axis accelerometer data is sampled 800 times per second.
PowerStroke records data 16 times per second –
4 times faster than any power meter in the world.
This recording rate is so fast that left/right motion can be determined even as the cyclist turns the bike crank.
PowerStroke ride file data is processed in iBike Isaac software. Isaac’s PowerStroke screen shows wasted motion, left/right crank efficiency, wasted energy analysis.
One of the most frequently asked questions about the Newton is: how accurate is it?
Superb accuracy begins with sound technology and engineering. Here is a section that talks about how the iBike works. People–engineers and physicists in particular–are amazed by the soundness of our patented technology.
We have 10 years of customer testimonials…you’ll find them on Facebook and elsewhere.
We’ve had lots of independent reviews. Here is a detailed independent review, published in the February 2014 issue of RennRad, a prestigious cycling magazine, written by a PhD, comparing the Newton to SRM, PowerTap, Quarq, Polar, and Garmin.
The reviewer’s finding? The Newton was within 2% of the SRM, at 1/5th the price.

21ST CENTURY TECHNOLOGY FOR 21ST CENTURY CYCLISTS
The iBike Newton uses 21st century digital sensor technology. The Newton’s accelerometer and dynamic pressure wind sensors—both used in aerospace applications—absolutely nail the power a cyclist produces.
Because the iBike Newton sensors are “hard wired” to the main circuit board, PowerStroke readings are recorded 16 times per second, every second! No other power meter gives this depth of data.
The iBike Newton uses patented technology that does away with strain gauges and expensive hubs, cranks and pedals.

A COMPLETE POWER METER SYSTEM
Traditional power meters require separate purchase of a bike computer. You’ll also need to find software or a website to read the bike computer’s data. And if you want to train with power, you will likely buy a book that tells you how to so…or hire a coach who tells you what to do.
We think there is a better way. The iBike Newton Power Meter is a complete system: power sensors, sophisticated bike computer, Mac/PC software, and power training workouts are all included. There nothing else you need to buy or search for on the web.

Quick Set Up
We know you want to get out and get riding! So we’ve made setup the easiest ever, with videos and expert “wizards” in Isaac software
Rugged, Space-Age Sensors
The iBike Newton’s solid-state sensors are located inside the bike computer head–far away from spinning hubs, cranks, and pedals. No moving parts means superior water resistance and nothing to wear out. No moving parts means no need for expensive, inconvenient, periodic “recalibrations” at the factory.
Easy to move from bike to bike
Switching from bike to bike is easy and affordable. Conveniently place a 2nd mount and sensors on your additional bike and all you need to do is slide your iBike Newton onto the mount when you’re ready to ride. Your iBike Newton stores 4 profiles for 4 separate bikes!
iBike Newton uses ANT+ technology, so you can use any Garmin speed/cadence sensor and heart rate strap–or any other ANT+ sensor! The iBike Newton also reads power data from any ANT+ direct force power meter. And optionally, you can transmit your Newton power data to any ANT+ bike computer.
Includes Memory, CdA and Indoor Trainer upgrades
The iBike Newton PowerStroke is our best Power Cycling Computer. So, in addition to PowerStroke measurement it includes a 2X memory upgrade, Indoor Trainer feature upgrade, and CdA feature upgrade. and If you wish you can add a few more features such as Newton Tracker, or ANT+ Power Transmit Key.
Mac and PC compatible
iBike Isaac software is feature packed and easier than ever to use. A click of the button shares your ride exploits on Facebook–or click a different button and send your ride file to TrainingPeaks or Strava.
