BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — Stages Cycling will continue to supply power meters to the defending Tour de France champions, Team Sky, in 2016. It will be the third year that Stages has supplied the team. 

"As more and more players crowd the power segment, our constant developmental contact with Team Sky is a main factor in our differentiation and leadership in the category," said Pat Warner, Stages' vice president. "We treat every new year with Team Sky as an opportunity to make our products even better  —2016 is no different."

Team Sky will ride the second-generation Shimano Dura-Ace Stages Power meters that the Team helped vet for the retail market in 2015. 

"We took a chance on Stages Cycling in 2014, and we were delighted with the results," said Carsten Jeppesen, the head of technical operations for Team Sky. "We proved their product meets our needs and they offered us great support. Even in the worst conditions this year, the new Stages meter was always reliable, consistent and accurate."

Stages Power meters with a new generation housing, as used by Team Sky, are now available. The second generation housing is slimmer and stronger than the first generation and offered at a lower price. Stages also plans to begin shipping its carbon power meter models before the end of this year.
