Carbon MTB GXP L Gen 3 Power Meter Crank Arm by Stages Cycling
Power meters aren't just for the roadies any more and more and more mountain bikers are wanting a piece of the action during their training and racing efforts to analyze their strengths and weaknesses. Cross-country and enduro racing require specific demands and training and racing with this powerful data available can bring large gains in training and pay dividends on race day.

Stages adds Active Temperature Compensation to the mix to prevent skewed readings when conditions widely fluctuate on the trail, so its spot on at the trailhead and at the summit of the highest point of the day. To simplify things, an accelerometer-based cadence measurement m...
