About Quarq Power Meters

Jim and Mieke Meyer, Quarq’s founders, moved to Australia in 2006 for her to work on an MBA and him to focus on triathlon. Jim wanted a power meter for training but couldn’t find one that fit his needs or budget. So, with his background in mathematics and passion for tinkering, he decided to start his own power meter company. As a result, Quarq – a hip misspelling of the word quark, which is a fast-moving subatomic particle – was founded.  The next year Quarq established its factory in Jim’s hometown of Spearfish, S.D., and demonstrated prototype power meters at InterBike trade show in Las Vegas. In June 2008, the company shipped its first power meter.
