Smart bikes combine the interactivity of a smart trainer with the convenience and durability of an indoor bike. With the StagesBike SB20, Stages Cycling joins a small list of companies making such a machine, and it offers best-in-class stability and ease of use, with ride feel and interactivity close behind.
Like smart bikes from WattBike, Tacx, and Wahoo, the StagesBike works on ANT+ and Bluetooth to interact with third-party training software like Zwift, TrainerRoad, and Ful Gaz. These training games can control the resistance to both mimic undulations in virtual courses and to match the prescribed wattage of structured workouts.
The StagesBike measures left- and right-leg power independently, and easily adjust to fit riders from 4’10” to 6’4″. A 50-pound flywheel delivers excellent ride feel in how it mimics the inertia and momentum you get riding outside.
