Favero Assioma

I’ve read favourable reviews of the new Favero Assioma (dual), pedal based meters, and may be swinging towards this option over a crank based option.

Other than the electronic metrics involved, does anyone have any idea what the actual pedals are like themselves? I know they require (preferably), their own Keo’ish style of plate, but how well are the actual bodies made? I do like the fact that they appear to stock a wide variety of spares- crash damage would be one of my concerns with such a system.

Am I also right in thinking if I were to buy the dual system, I could effectively buy another “dummy”, pair of pedals from Favero and have two separate power meters on separate bikes?

    My understanding is that the right pedal talks to the left, and the left talks to the head unit. So you need either a left on its own, or a right and a left. A right on its own won't work, but I could be wrong.

    Ah, I see. That could make sense. I'd most likely be using as a dual system anyway, but it was just an additional thought...
