We knew it was coming, and now it is official; Stages Cycling announced an expansion to its power meter options at Eurobike. The new options will include Shimano’s latest 12-Speed Dura-Ace R9200 and Ultegra R8100 cranksets, with both drive (new) and non-drive side power meter options.
Last December, Stages began offering Factory installed Dura-Ace R9200 and Ultegra R8100 power meters as single-sided, non-drive side Stages Power meters. The new 12-Speed Dura-Ace R9200 and Ultegra R8100 cranksets now offer dual power readings via Stages Gen 3 power pod technology.
Customers who have already purchased a Stages Power meter for R9200 or R8100 can purchase a drive side power meter and pair it to their left side to create a dual-sided unit.
Ten years of Stages Power
July marks the 10th anniversary of the first Stages Power meter. The current Gen 3 Stages Power technology features accuracy within 1.5 percent, active temperature compensation for consistent performance regardless of weather conditions, IPX7 water resistance, and user-replaceable CR2032 batteries.
“We’re excited to offer a dual-sided Stages Power meter on the latest Shimano crankset,” said Pat Warner, Senior Vice President of Product Development. “Our top priority is providing cutting edge technology to help cyclists achieve their goals. These new models add to the many tools Stages has to offer.”
Units will be available to purchase in Fall 2022. Like all Stages Power meters, these new Dura-Ace and Ultegra units are built and individually calibrated in Boulder, Colorado. As always, stages offer factory installation for those with stock cranksets looking for a power meter makeover.
