So, why the delay? Well, says Stages, Campagnolo crank arms provided some tricky engineering issues.
According to Pat Warner, Stages senior vice-president, “Campagnolo’s carbon design is entirely different and it took more time than anticipated to meter. We ended up creating a new iteration of our Stages Cycling power meter for the iconic Italian brand’s cranksets”.

Tom Kattus, general manager of Campagnolo North America added that “the complex construction of our crank arms presented some challenges to the engineering team, and they were relentless in their pursuit to create a perfect solution.
“We worked closely with the team to understand our unique construction and they designed a power meter specific to Campagnolo”.
In other news, Stages Cycling has also announced plans for its own dash screen that will pair with Stages Link, a cloud based training device.
According to the company, we can expect to see these products “in the spring”, however there’s no mention of how much they’ll cost.
