(Boulder, CO – July 13, 2022) Stages Cycling, a leading cycling technology company, announced an expansion to its power meter options at Eurobike Wednesday to include Shimano’s latest 12- Speed Dura-Ace R9200 and Ultegra R8100 cranksets.
In December, Stages began offering Factory Installed Dura-Ace R9200 and Ultegra R8100 power meters as single-sided, non-drive side Stages L units only, which is the same technology ridden to countless professional wins including Tadej Pogacar’s 2020 Tour de France victory. The drive-side Stages R crank arms and dual-sided Stages LR cranksets for Shimano’s 12-speed groups feature a new power meter design and are on display at Eurobike this week. Units will be available to purchase in Fall 2022.
Like all Stages Power meters, these new Dura-Ace and Ultegra units are built and individually calibrated in Boulder, Colorado to the same exacting standards of performance, accuracy and reliability as the rest of their product line, including the Stages Bike SB20 Smart Bike and models found in some of the biggest indoor cycling studios.
This month is the 10 year anniversary of the first Stages Power meter. The current Gen 3 Stages Power technology features accuracy within 1.5 percent, active temperature compensation for consistent performance regardless of weather conditions, IPX7 water resistance, and user-replaceable CR2032 batteries.
“We’re excited to offer a dual-sided Stages Power meter on the latest Shimano crankset,” said Pat Warner, Senior Vice President of Product Development. “Our top priority is providing cutting edge technology to help cyclists achieve their goals. These new models add to the many tools Stages has to offer.”
Customers who have already purchased a Stages Power meter for R9200 or R8100 will be able to purchase a drive side power meter and pair it to their existing left side to create a dual-sided unit.
Stages Cycling LLC, with offices in Portland, OR and Boulder, CO, launched the Stages Power meter in 2012, immediately making waves in the power measurement category. Stages has expanded into the commercial and home fitness categories with the SC3 commercial indoor cycling bike, with groundbreaking features designed to improve rider experience and increase durability. In 2016, Stages completed the outdoor power training ecosystem with Stages Dash, a performance GPS head unit, and the Stages Cycling app, a cloud-based training service, guiding athletes to their best performances on the road and indoors through easy analytics, education, and custom coaching.
