Stages Cycling Launches Virtual Ready Program for StagesBike SB20 Smart Bikes

May 27, 2021

Take an Extended Virtual Test Ride in Watopia and beyond

(Boulder, CO – 27 May, 2021) Stages Cycling is offering customers three months of premium access to the virtual cycling platform of their choice with purchase of a StagesBike SB20 Smart Bike.

The promotion, which is going on globally from now until July 1, 2021, includes many of the popular 3rd party indoor cycling platforms which offer immersive smart bike controllable experiences ranging from a pure outdoor riding and racing  simulation to leg-burning ERG mode controlled workouts.

At time of purchase, new StagesBike SB20 Smart Bike owners can choose from several of the most popular current apps including Zwift, Trainer Road, Rouvy, RGT, BKool and FulGaz, and can activate their 3-month trial whenever they’re ready, be that now or later in the year.

“We’re not riding turbo trainers while we watch race tapes on the VCR anymore,” said Sean Coffey, Stages Global Marketing Director. ”Indoor cycling has evolved at an incredible pace  in just a few short years and smart bikes like the class-leading StagesBike SB20 Smart Bike are a huge part of that growth as they work hand-in-hand with a variety of 3rd party apps to deliver an entirely new indoor cycling experience straight to your garage or living room.”

“With so many choices currently available in the market, we wanted to give new SB20 owners a great experience starting with an extended test ride on the cycling app of their choice,” Coffey said.

Stages Cycling expects some riders to use the promo to extend their current app memberships, while others will likely use this opportunity to try something different risk-free. And for some riders this is their first foray into the world of virtual cycling, and they might not know where to begin.

“Just like real-world cycling, that new rider experience is important and we want our new SB20 owners to get off to a great start,” Coffey said.

More information about the Stages Virtual Ready Promotion, Stages power meters, the latest Dash computers and the StagesBike SB20 Smart Bike  is available from authorized Stages Cycling dealers and online at www.stagescycling.com.
