Stages Firmware Bump – Alive & Kicking

Stages Firmware Bump – Alive & Kicking

I had some great help from Stages Support recently with an issue with my Gen3 Dual power meter and all was resolved satisfactorily. An interesting thing I learnt from the whole process was that the deep-dive stages firmware tweaker is only available via the Android app and that lets you make changes to various alignment parameters including the crank length. I digress.

Today’s news from Stages is that the company is still cranking out new features to its DASH range of bike computers. We now get the ability to view Di2 gearing and to use old rides as a course. Last year’s main feature was for upcoming CLIMBS along a similar vein to Wahoo Summit,  Karoo Climber and Garmin ClimbPro‘s offerings and before that was e-bike support.




Details below of key firmware releases in the last 18 months.
