The latest Irish crowd sourced campaign, Zone DPMX, is set for success within it’s opening 24 hours on Kickstarter. The wearable device is designed to measure precise rider power (watts) and cadence (rpm) as you ride.
Zone DPMX: Breaking the cycle
Until the Zone DPMX tha majority of riders have found themselves frustrated on several occasions as they find their power meter strapped to a different bike to the one they are using. This wearable device fastens to the rider’s shoes, removing both the treat of forgetting and different calibrations per bicycle. Now, I won’t lie, I’ve used a lot of words and terms here I’m not too up on, but this Irish Kickstarter campaign is powering to success.
Irish you say. Who makes the Zone DPMX?
The Zone DPMX is designed by Dublin based outfit, Brim Brothers. The company was founded by Barry Redmond in 2008 with the sole focus of creating a more convenient ANT+ compatible cycling analytic tool. While development to date has been encouraged by Enterprise Ireland and Growing Capital, the companies Kickstarter campaign would appear to be the naked flame needed to power this device over the finish line.
Who is Zone DPMX for and how much will it cost?
If you are cycling in the park on a mountain bike during the weekend, you can probably do without this. The Zone DPMX provides cyclists with a solution for focussed training and detailed riding analytics. Brim Brothers claim that measuring power surpasses measuring other metrics such as heart-rate. The Zone DPMX can be used either on the left foot or on both feet for increased accuracy, with the Kickstarter campaign’s Super Early Bird coming in at €390.
The Zone DPMX is for cyclists looking to take their game to the next level and while it may not be for everyone, we love nothing more than seeing an Irish Kickstarter campaign roar to success within hours of being released to the world.
