Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, with a manufacturing and R&D base in Boulder, Colorado, Stages Cycling came to market in 2012 to completely blow the category of power measurement apart. Six World Championships and less than a year later, the world’s most data-driven, obsessive, professional cycling team, Team Sky, chose to exclusively ride Stages Power meters to victory in the most grueling professional cycling races in the world including the world time-trial championships.
Stages started with what we knew, indoor cycling, and developed power meters to work on indoor cycling bikes. These bikes, operating under the high demands of health clubs’ indoor cycling programs, were Stages’ first power measurement test subjects.
Thousands of indoor cycling bikes later, and hours of work spent fine-tuning the power meter’s capabilities, Stages team began work to produce their first outdoor meter.
