When paired with the Stages Power meter and the Stages console, our indoor bikes will display and record both speed and distance. Unlike other indoor bikes that equate flywheel rotation speed with theoretical outdoor speed, which is easily manipulated by lowering the resistance, the Stages Indoor Cycling bike uses the rider's direct measured power data to calculate the speed that your current power output would have you riding at if you were riding outdoors on a flat surface.


By using this more accurate calculation, the speed and distance on your indoor bikes will be accurate to what you would ride outdoors (without any major wind or any significant incline/decline). This realistic number is especially helpful when determining pacing if you ride outdoors and your distance is accurate enough to combine with outdoor rides when tracking mileage.
