At the Tour Down Under Team Sky’s use of Stages power meters came as a surprise, after Shimano announced the team would be using the new Dura-Ace R9110-P meters this year. It turns out, both Shimano and Stages are supplying the team with power meters for 2018.

In December, Shimano told BikeRadar that six teams would be using its Dura-Ace R9100-P power meters in 2018, and explicitly mentioned Team Sky.


Then, in mid-January, Stages announced it would be providing power meters to the team.

“Stages will continue their support of Team Sky, who has ridden the Stages Power LR meter to their last two Tour de France victories,” a press release from Stages read.

A spokesperson from Stages also said neither company is the exclusive provider of power meters to the team. Both companies are partners and are providing power meters. The Stages release also stated it would be left to the team and riders as to which units they choose.
