The new StageONE power meter lowers the opening price of training with crank-based power to just $699, and tops out at just $950.
Their new patent-pending power meter called StageONE will come assembled on your choice of 14 different alloy crank models from Cannondale, Shimano, and SRAM with both road and mountain bike options.
The strain gauge and all hardware are on the non-drive crankarm, so all you’re replacing is the single piece without having to mess with the gears, hubs or any other part of the drivetrain.
The StageONE power meter is factory assembled by Stages Cycling in Boulder, CO, and adds just 20g.
“Power is no longer just for serious racers on road bikes,” said Pat Warner, Senior vice president at Stages Cycling. “Power training is now a possibility for all levels of cyclists and all styles of bikes at a price that everyone can afford.
“I believe that the StageONE power meter’s features and price will change the power category, and I’m looking forward to all of these riders achieving massive performance improvements because of our power meter.”
It’ll be available for retail sale January 2013. We’ll have more details after checking out at Interbike.
