Innovative Power Meter and GPS Computer Brand Teams Up With Legendary Endurance Coaching Company
Boulder, CO — Stages® Cycling today announced a two-year partnership with Carmichael Training Systems. Celebrating 20 years in business in 2020, CTS coaches will exclusively rely on Stages Dash GPS computers and Stages Power meters, and Stages will provide exclusive access to purchase incentives on Stages products for the thousands of professional and amateur athletes that rely on CTS services to achieve their goals.
“I’ve been a long-time admirer of Stages products,” said CTS Founder and Head Coach, Chris Carmichael. “The way they revolutionized power measurement for cyclists, making what was once only a tool for the highest level professional athletes available to any rider regardless of their level or ability, has made a profound impact on endurance coaching. I can see the Stages Dash, with its incredible utilization of color and customization to deliver workout goals and real time feedback having a similar effect when it comes to GPS head units.”
“Chris Carmichael and CTS are icons of endurance athletics, and partnering with their coaches, and by extension, athletes, is a unique opportunity,” said Sean Coffey, Stages Cycling Global Marketing Director. “We look forward to working together to help athletes realize their goals, whether that’s gaining fitness, losing weight, and maintaining strength or competing in the world’s toughest events.”
