LES MILLS CYCLE WORKOUTS
Stages Gates® Carbon Drive™
The Stages Gates® Carbon Drive™ carbon fiber belt is backed by Stages’ unparalleled 10-year warranty. Combined with a 5:1 gear ratio and perimeter-weighted flywheel, the SC drive system supplies a sublime feeling of inertia for that real outdoor experience. None of the lubrication, maintenance, or replacement costs of a chain or poly-v drive are required.
Stages SprintShift enables instantaneous macro-level resistance changes without incessantly turning a dial. The unique three-stage lever and custom workload settings allow indoor cyclists instant control. Perfect for HIIT and interval based workouts, the cyclist can add or drop resistance quickly and easily, without sacrificing custom micro-adjustments.
Precision fit range and quick adjustment functions set indoor riders up for their next best performance. Two minutes. That’s all it takes to dial in the ideal FitLoc™-activated height adjustments. By combining road bike geometry with our RhythmBar™ handlebar, StagesFit puts you in a safe, comfortable position for whatever the day’s ride requires.
- The industry’s fastest adjustment system for handlebar and seat height adjustment – 5 times faster than standard twist- to-lock systems.
- Proprietary FitLoc adjustment system (patent-pending) creates a quick, comfortable and secure ride.
- RoadBar offers more position options than traditional indoor bullhorn handlebars.StagesFit Adjustments
Stages' proprietary, easy to use fore aft adjustments are a simple, quick way to get the perfect bike fit. The StagesFit process on SC1 features patent-pending fore aft adjustments and standard pop-pin twist-to-lock height adjustments.
On the SC3, the console display runs on power generated by the rider. No console batteries are needed, saving valuable time and money.
Generator located at the flywheel hub
Wired connection is hidden in the handlebar stem. If maintenance is ever needed, connection is easily accessible
Always-on backlight allows rider to see data in all types of room lighting and eliminates button-pushing during the ride
Rider sees Max, Average and Ride totals for the following metrics: Kilojoules (work), Kcal (calories), Watts, RPM, Speed, Heart Rate (if wearing a strap), Time, and Distance
USB data capture
Useful for comparing efforts, the rider gets stage, current, and average data, which is very powerful info for training efficiently and effectively
The STAGE button allows for up to 99 sections of time (laps). Data does not start to record or average during WARMUP stage (so total ride data is not skewed with poor warmup data)
