Stages Cycling has increased its product offerings, adding indoor bikes to its already-popular line of crank-mounted power meters.

The new SC Series bikes are a line of high-end indoor cycling bikes, which include an array of top-shelf features. The SC Series launches with two models: the flagship SC3, which includes a Stages Power meter, and the SC2, which is the same save for the inclusion of a power meter. The SC3 sells for $2699, while the SC2 runs $1849.

The CarbonGlyde drive system has an ultra low-tension design, making it more efficient, easier to adjust properly, and longer wearing.

The SC Series bikes share two new patents pending concepts: SprintShift and FitLoc. SprintShift is a dual-action resistance adjustment, which pairs a traditional micro-adjust dial with a three-position macro-adjust lever. The SprintShift lever allows large, consistent jumps in resistance for intervals and rest. FitLoc replaces the standard twist-to-lock pop-pin height adjustments with a new cam operated pop-pin, making fit adjustments for height faster and easier.

These features are paired with a Stages Power meter on the SC3 model, which sports Stages new rider-powered EcoSCRN console. EcoSCRN uses a hub dynamometer, rather than batteries. The addition of the Stages Power measurement system enables riders to train indoors and outdoors with the same technology.

Handlebars mimic a real road bike versus the traditional bull horn bars found on many other indoor trainers.

Both of the SC3 and SC2 bikes utilize the new CarbonGlyde drive system. CarbonGlyde builds on the lack of maintenance offered by Gates Carbon Drive carbon belt, with a 5:1 gear ratio and high-inertia flywheel to provide a smooth, realistic ride quality.

    Some nice features but like every other spin bike: setting your position on the bike is very limited.

    How is it “very limited”. It is hardly worse than any road bike, except for the fact that you can’t change crank arm length…
