SpinScan: An efficiency value of the leg muscles to produce power evenly through the pedal stroke. A graphic representation of your pedal stroke is viewed in real time.

Average Torque Angle: A value in degrees that indicating where on the pedal stroke maximum torque is being delivered... indicates the pedal angle where most of the torque is being generated. An optimized bike fit and proper pedaling technique will improve this value.

Pulse Power: A numerical value based on Watts (power) and Heart Rate. The higher the better.
