BOULDER, CO (BRAIN) — Power meter manufacturer Stages Cycling is sponsoring the Scott-3 Rox World Cup cross-country team, including Geoff Kabush, for 2013.
The team will use Stages' crankarm-based power meter for training and racing, the company said.
“We are looking forward to this partnership with Stages Cycling,” said Kyle Douglas, the founder/manager of Scott-3 Rox. “The units offer the team advantage while training and racing — it allows every rider to have detailed information without sacrificing any weight or performance.”
The team will use the Stages meter with Shimano XTR cranks offroad and Shimano Dura-Ace cranks for road training and cyclocross.
“We’re ecstatic that we have one of North America’s premier World Cup cross-country teams using our Stages Power meters,” said Matt Pacocha, marketing manager for Stages Cycling. “We believe that our Stages Power meter offers a huge advantage to the Scott-3 Rox athletes. Power capture and data analysis is still in its infancy in the off-road realm, and we hope to help the team reach a new level of performance by providing this crucial data to them, without compromising their bikes.”
Stages introduced its meter at the Interbike Expo this fall; it expects to begin shipping its product next month.
