BIKE

Caleb Bottcher rides the Shimano XTR and Shimano 105 Power Meters

WHAT STAGES PRODUCTS DOES CALEB USE? MTB and Road Power Meters and the M200 Dash

CALEB'S FAVORITE DASH FEATURES: My favorite feature is being able to change the size of each data field on each screen. Most other computers only have preset options. I also enjoy how I can easily send a course from Strava to the dash which is handy. On my front page I have the power, hour, time, and lap time. The second page holds my power wheel. The third has my power stats and the last holds the distance and elevation. 

PROFILE

Favorite Stages Moment

Stages power and dash help me to hit each session with the exact duration and intensity even when I’m in a new location. When combined with heart rate, my power data gives us a gauge of how fresh or fatigued I am and time my peaks for key races.
