As with any bicycle generator, CadenceX does add drag. While there is no such thing as free power, we try our best to make sure that you don’t notice CadenceX while riding through the following ways:

1. Our onboard drag modulation software utilizes data such as rider speed, device power needs, to minimize drag
2.CadenceX‘s all-in-one design is more efficient end-to-end than most other dynamo systems. CadenceX‘s generator has ~74% peak generator efficiency.
3. There is mechanical advantage being on the rim vs the middle hub of a bike wheel (think of the effort associated from opening a door on hinge vs handle)
4. We use an optimized o-ring, spring combination that balances friction with drag (tested over dozens of iterations)
