    This is my third power meter from PMC and as usual great customer service and lovely communications. In regards to the stages PM, this is my second 3rd Gen and so far no issues with both and they work as expected with logical and comparable power readings. I strongly recommend PMC and stages PM for every one interested in keeping track of their training objectives.

    This is actually my first power meter. It is very user friendly, easily compatible to my devices and so far have had zero issues and not expecting to. Josh was super helpful with questions I had and helped me narrow down my choice. Would totally buy again from PMC.

    I’ve been using a Stages Gen 3 power meter on a Shimano R8000 left-side crank arm for about a year. So far it’s been almost flawless. I’ve used the power meter extensively both indoors on Zwift and outside. Initial battery lasted more than 2,000 miles. During that time, the meter had a few brief power drops to zero outside or when connected to Zwift. That was annoying but it rarely happens. I’ve ridden in the rain and washed the bike several times with no problems. As for accuracy, it’s within 5-8 watts of my Favero Assioma power meter pedals I used to have. Those Assiomas worked well too but the release tension was so high I injured my knees. So the Stages works better for me because I can use any pedal system I want. Be careful when replacing the battery to ensure the rubber o-ring seal is installed correctly and no contaminants gets inside. And don’t install the battery backwards like I did, it’s a pain to get back out. It’s a solid and reliable power meter.
