FITNESS DURING COVID-19 CLOSURES

How to Set Up Your Bike
Additional Bike Features
1. Stages bike auto calibrates and rather than using levels, uses the most accurate measure of performance Power/Watts to determine a users effort.
2. Resistance knob with a sprint shift lever!
Not having inaccurate levels to determine resistance allows users the ability to make small/micro adjustments to resistance without taking an entire level on or off.
The three-stage sprint shift level is perfect for HIIT and interval training, or anytime a user wants to add or take off 1.5 turns to their resistance knob without having to actually turn the knob. Again more customization to your ride!
3. STAGES CARBONGLYDE - The most efficient indoor cycling drive train also delivers the most natural road feel.
4. STAGESFIT - Precision fit range and quick adjustment functions set your riders up for their next best performance.
5. STAGES FITLOC Simple height adjustments for a quick, comfortable & secure ride.
6. STAGES FLIGHT APP - See below!
- Features of Stages Flight App
1. Track your indoor and outdoor cardio workouts using the GPS in your iPhone.
2. Customize your ride based on fitness level by taking an FTP test
Your FTP is an estimation of the amount of work (wattage) you are able to maintain over one hour. Finding out your FTP gives you the ability to assess your fitness level over time and customize your training zones so we can coach you better! You can find a 3, 10, 20 and 60 minute FTP test in the app menu.
Avoid exercising the day before and make sure you hydrate and eat well before your FTP test.
The longer the test, the more accurate it will be
You can also manually adjust your FTP in settings
3. Color coded training zones
If your FTP is set, your app will sync up to your bike to show you what training zone YOU are in based on the Stages Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE) chart. The colors are representative of what percentage of your FTP you are riding at and are useful in terms of knowing where your effort should be during your class/training.
You can still use the app without setting your FTP, it just becomes more accurate with an FTP set.
To view color/training zones while exercising, go to settings and select FTP to the right of Intensity % before starting your ride.
4. Optionally sync your heart rate monitor if it has ANT+ and Bluetooth capabilities.
If youd prefer to see the percentage of your max heart rate, select heart rate to the right of Intensity % in your settings.
5. Pairs with Strava, Sufferfest and other apps.
