Spy shots of the new Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 SRM crank have been spotted at the Giro d’Italia. This confirms the rumors that the new 11-speed group is nearing completion and will likely include all the standard upgrade options including power meters when the group is released later this year. This is great news for power meter users that have typically had to wait months after an initial product release in for such upgrades in earlier component group upgrades.
On a related note, we expect the 2012 SRAM Red Exogram Quarq BB30 cranks to come in stock within the next two days. The new crank will drop a significant amount of weight when compared to the outgoing version and will continue to reduce the weight penalty of power meter systems.
