Stages Power Meter Hits Europe w/ Direct Sales Model
European riders can now get the Stages Cycling stick-on power meter directly from the brand.
The units will still be manufactured and attached to the crank arms in their Boulder, CO (USA) headquarters, then shipped to Europe. Sebastian Eckmann, who most recently worked for Pearl Izumi, will head up operations in Kirchzarten, Germany.. Rather than run through a different distributor for each country, they’ll sell direct to both shops and consumers, streamlining the process a bit (for them, anyway). Saddleback LTD will continue to serve the UK and Ireland.
Initial inventory and options are limited, but the full range is expected to be in stock there sometime in January. Stages Power meters will start at €699 and top out at €899 for sales in Continental Europe.
