Stages Carbon Campagnolo Record Power Meter 12S
The Stages Carbon Campagnolo Record Power Meter 12S is now available and comes ride ready – with Campagnolo’s Ultra-Torque CULT ceramic non-drive bottom bracket bearing. The Stages Campy Record Power Meter features +/- 1.5% accuracy and 200 hours of battery life. Stages power meters use CR2032 batteries and feature tool free battery replacement. In addition, it is extremely lightweight – adding only 15 grams to the weight of the crank arm. The power meter is compatible with both ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART devices, which means you can use your favorite bicycle computer as well as a smartphone or tablet.
The new Stages Generation 3 power meter features radio antennas that are 6x more powerful than the previous version. This means better compatibility with both bike computers and watches. The new versions also feature improved accuracy and have an LED indicator light on the housing for improved ease of use.

Advice From Our Staff:
There are not a lot of power meters available for Campy cranks, so this Stages represents a solid option. It’s easy to install and works well. It’s a bit pricey for a left side arm, however the Campy power meter cranksets we have from companies like SRM and power2max, are much more expensive than this.
Options For This Power Meter
Crank arm lengths: This power meter is available in the following crank arm lengths:
- 170 mm | 175 mm
Crankset: This Stages power meter is compatible with all Campagnolo Chorus and Record 12-speed cranks.
Check Frame Clearance: Crank-arm based power meters like this one attach a sensor on the inside of the left crank arm. On some bikes, there is not enough room between the left crank arm and the chainstay for the sensor to clear the frame. Therefore, you should make sure you have at least 10 mm of clearance between the left crank arm and the chainstay - and that you don't have a bottom bracket mounted rear brake (used on some aero and TT bikes). The important area to measure is right in the middle of the crank arm. Please refer to the image below.
If you find that you have around 7-9 mm of clearance, what many people will do is simply install a 1 or 2 mm bottom bracket spacer (between the left crank arm and the frame), which will give them the clearance they need.
