Team Sky sticks with Stages power meters for 2015
December 04 2014
Team Sky and Stages Cycling are to partner again in 2015. Stages will remain the British-based pro-team’s official power meter supplier.
Stages Cycling’s senior vice president, Pat Warner, said: “We see year two with Team Sky as impactful to our brand as the first – possibly even more so. If they took a chance on Stages Cycling in 2014, then signing up for a second year is validation that we’re meeting their needs fully and that they want to use the Stages Power meter.”
Last year was the first real test for Stages power meters in the pro peloton. It saw the product taking on its first Grand Tour, Classics and World Championship events.
Team Sky head of technical operations, Carsten Jeppesen, said: “We took a chance on Stages Cycling in 2014. We proved their product meets our needs and they offered us really great support. Even in the worst conditions this year, the Stages meter was reliable, consistent and accurate. We couldn’t ask for more as we head into the 2015 season.”
Team Sky head of athlete performance, Tim Kerrison, added: “We are excited to continue our relationship with Stages for a second year. Stages has proven to be a great partner, with a great power meter that meets the needs of cyclists at all levels – from the amateur enthusiast who wishes to use power data to better inform and refine their training, to catering for the demands at the highest level of professional road cycling."
