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. The Quarq CinQo pioneered the tool free replaceable battery and was one of the first power meters with ANT+™ wireless communication. In 2009, Quarq replaced the CinQo with the CinQo Saturn – named for the ring of Saturn that encircled the power meter spider’s arms. Under an agreement with SRAM, the CinQo Saturn was also fitted to SRAM’s S900 crankset and marketed worldwide as the SRAM S975.
