“While we have been producing carbon power meters to work with SRAM, FSA, and Race Face cranksets for some time, the Campagnolo carbon power meters proved to be a unique engineering challenge,” said Pat Warner, Stages Cycling senior vice president. “Campagnolo’s carbon design is entirely different and it took more time than anticipated to meter. We ended up creating a new iteration of our Stages Cycling power meter for the iconic Italian brand’s cranksets.”
Stages Cycling power meters for Campagnolo Super Record, Record, and Chorus crank arms are available for $949, $799, and $699, respectively, in 170mm, 172.5mm, and 175mm lengths. (UK and AU pricing was not immediately available.)

“Working with the team at Stages Cycling has been an absolute pleasure,” said Tom Kattus, general manager of Campagnolo North America. “The complex construction of our crank arms presented some challenges to the engineering team, and they were relentless in their pursuit to create a perfect solution. We worked closely with the team to understand our unique construction and they designed a power meter specific to Campagnolo. We are thrilled that the project has come to fruition and that Stages Cycling is now offering a complete line of power meters to complement our carbon group sets.”
Stages launched in 2012 with an alloy crank meter. The company now has models for road, mountain and track cycling.
Stages announced plans for its own GPS head unit, the Dash, which will pair with Stages Link, a cloud-based training service. Stages expects the Dash and Link to become available this spring.
