Power meter’s are known to be incredibly expensive and the various different makes and models on the market have made it increasingly difficult to determine which is best for you and your bike. In our opinion stages has made it a whole lot easier with their second generation units and we can now confidently say that Stages power meters will suit 90% of our customers
The unit itself is mounted on the left crank arm and with various different BB specs and lengths available the difficulty of standardization has been solved somewhat. The units are now also available on carbon crank arms and with an added weight of only about 20 Grams, they are one of the lightest meter’s on the market. The units have a claimed accurancy of 1-2% thus not the most accurate on the market which are the SRM units, but at a third of the price of a SRM, we think its a pretty good all round deal. We have been testing the new carbon meter on the MTB and have been suitably impressed. The crank is Easy to install, simple to pair with the head unit and provides consistent power readings.
The meter thus provides everything you need at a reasonable price and with a minimal weight penalty, we would definitely recommend it. Contact us to see which unit will be correct for you.
