About Us

We Believe in Training Smarter

We are an award winning company from New Zealand who develop power measurement technology for paddlesports. It all started at the University of Canterbury in 2008 and continued with the New Zealand Canoe Sprint team having exclusive rights to use the power meter technology for the build-up to the London 2012 Olympics. Fast-forward to today and our power meters are used by multiple national federations and individual athletes at all levels around the world.
