New 2018 generation with improved Gen3 power meter!
Stages power meters are positioned discretely on the inner side of the left crank arm, weighing in at a mere 15g. It's accurate (±1.5%) and easy to install. Stages power meter always come mounted to the left crank arm. So all you have to do is find the model, which is compatible with your existing crank set and simply swap the left crank arm. Stages Power has a wide range of adaptation over the bike industry's aluminum crank models.
For Shimano XTR M9000/M9020 equipped mountain bike riders Stages offers a power meter fit to either Shimano M9000 (race) or M9020 model (all-mountain) crank arm. Riders looking to add power to their existing crank will need to select length, as well as crank model due to a difference in the arms' Q-factor.
Since the power meter is placed on the inside of the crank arm, a clearance of at least 10mm between crank and chain stay / direct-mount brake is needed. Especially bikes with direct-mount brakes may cause problems.
To ensure your bike is compatible with the Stages Power Meter, please perform a simple check with a 10mm hex key:
