The InfoCrank has passed the IPX7 waterproofing tests, so riding in the rain, through puddles, or washing your bike should not damage your InfoCrank. 

However, there are a few things that you need to be careful with, to avoid water ingress and this way protect the electronics inside:

  • Each year (or if they look worn out earlier) check the battery caps carefully that they are not damaged, especially make sure the the rubber O-rings on the outside edge of the caps have not deteriorated. If you have concerns, please contact us at or simply buy a new set of battery caps from us online. This is the one part that stands between the water and your essential electronics!

  • Changing batteries can also be crucial. Best not open the battery covers under any wet or damp circumstances, such as rain storms, in mist or being outside by the beach. To prevent moisture build-up, do not insert warm batteries into cold cranks. Allow the bike (with cranks installed) to stand in a warm place for some hours before inserting new batteries.

Regardless, we advise not to use a pressure hose directly on the InfoCrank power meter!
