It has become apparent that data and feedback has become more relevant in the world of indoor cycling than ever before. Stages Indoor Cycling was born from Stages Cycling which began making Power meters for Road bikes outside 5 years ago. These Power meters began to be used by professional teams on the tour calendar. With years of experience in both outdoor cycling and indoor cycling, Stages has bought this technology into the indoor cycling market.
