Team Sky – Stages or Shimano

Getting your company’s power meters on the Team Sky bikes is total confirmation that you have one of the best products in the world. In the last couple of seasons it’s been STAGES providing the power meters for Team Sky. For the 2018 season it seems that Team Sky will be using BOTH Stages LR and the new Shimano R9100-P power meter.

In an email to BikeRadar Tim Hillsdon of Shimano said

As the Stages release says, neither company is the exclusive provider of power meters to the team. We supply to the team on a non-exclusive basis.

A similar announcement came from the team at Stages – confirming the non-exclusive provision of power meters to Team Sky.
