The 9th generation PM9 uses a magnetic charging port and is available as a Mountain Bike version, too, just without the same graphics and “9” mark. They have ANT+ and Bluetooth LE transmitters to work with most any modern cycling computer, and it’s own app can show more advanced pedaling dynamics data. And yes, it’s Zwift compatible. They offer a variety of spindles to fit different bottom bracket standards, and their crank arms come in alloy, carbon, and top-level Look carbon fiber versions to fit different budgets.All use the same PM9 spider, which allows you to fit the product to almost any bike and rider.
