Stages Cycling enters indoor cycling market with new models

BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — Power meter brand Stages Cycling is launching a line of high-end indoor bikes for home and club use. The new effort builds on the company's background in the fitness industry.

Stages Indoor Cycling will offer two models, the SC3 and SC2. The flagship SC3 model includes a Stages Power meter while the SC2 model is the same in all respects but does not include the Stages Power meter.

Both models include SprintShift, a dual-action resistance adjustment, which pairs a traditional micro-adjust dial with a three-position macro-adjust lever, allowing large, consistent jumps in resistance for intervals and rest. The bikes also feature the FitLoc fit adjustment system, which replaces the standard pop-pin height adjustments with a new cam-operated pop-pin, making fit adjustments faster. Both bikes also use Gates Corporation's new CarbonGlyde drive system.

"The SC Series has the potential to be a benchmark," said Pat Warner, the product director for Stages Cycling, who spent 20 years working on indoor cycling bikes in the fitness industry prior to Stages. "We've addressed every major issue we've ever seen with an indoor bike. SC3 is certainly worthy of our 'flagship' status, with features like Stages Power, SprintShift, FitLoc, and our RoadBar. But we've also nailed the basics on these bikes, and we're confident that the ride feel, lack of maintenance, and reliability of the bike will be the features that actually set the benchmark for both the facility owner and the instructor."

MSRP for the SC3 with all features is $2,699; the SC2 without power meter or console will retail for $1,849

Stages Cycling will show the SC Series bike line publicly for the first time this week, at the IHRSA 2015 International Convention and Trade show in Los Angeles.
