In 2012, the Stages Cycling brand launched with the release of its uniquely designed power meter for outdoor bikes.
The Stages brand's global reach is fueled by its partnership with several world champion cycling teams and professional cyclists, including Team USA and 4-time Tour de France winner Team Sky.
Stages Cycling is the #1 largest producer of power meters in the world.

What is a power meter ?
The amount of power (torque x angular velocity) generated by the riders legs is measured by a device called a Power Meter.
Training using a power meter has become very popular these days for the following reasons
1. It gives the rider instantaneous feedback on how much effort is being put.
2. Precise analysis of rides.
Power meters transmit data wirelessly and can be paired to smart bike computers.
More than your speed and cadence numbers, the power measured in watts is gaining paramount importance for training and racing.
Why pro athletes opt for a dual sided power meter ?
Dual-sided power meters can measure the power generated individually by the left leg and the right leg. The resulting data allow monitoring of the dominant/non-dominant leg ratio and observe how it varies in relation to different racing and fitness conditions.
1. TOUR PROVEN
Stages Power has carried riders to three consecutive Tour de France victories, plus many more world and national championships. If you believe racing provides the world’s best product proving ground, then Stages Power is proven as the world’s best power meter.
2. ACTIVE TEMPERATURE COMPENSATION
Consistency of measurement is the most important feature of a power meter. Stages Power was the first meter to make temperature compensation an automatic process ensuring accurate readings no matter the environmental conditions. ATC is the key reason a rider can trust data from Stages Power in all conditions.
3. INDIVIDUAL METER CALIBRATION FOR MOST ACCURATE RESULTS
Stages Power meters are calibrated individually to ensure a +/- 1.5% accuracy level. Individual calibration means that you can trust the bi-lateral data produced by our system, as it's a real measurement and not an estimation.
