Stages Cycling has just added three new power meter upgrade options for Shimano’s latest gravel and mountain bike cranksets. Choose from single-side options for GRX, XT and XTR, or get dual-leg options for the mountain bike cranks. As with all of their add-on power meters, they claim +/-1.5% accuracy, an IPX7 water resistant design, and light 20g weight.
The installed price for the dual leg (aka “LR” for Left Right) with a new set of XTR cranks is $1,299 (£1,199/€1,299/$1,799AUD). Or, send in your own XT or XTR cranks and they’ll do a factory install for $399 (single side, either side) or $749 (dual side).
If you’ve got a new gravel bike with Shimano’s GRX group, they’re now offering a single-leg version for the non-driveside crank arm. They say there’s some clearance and fit issues with getting one on the drive side cranks for now. Price is $579 (£479/€559/$799AUD),
All of them use Stages’ accelerometer-based cadence measurement, so you won’t need any magnets or other add ons to get that data, too. Active temperature compensation keeps it from fluctuating along with your energy levels.
And just in case you missed it, Stages also launched a stationary indoor cycling trainer. Get all the tech and details on that in this post.
