Recommended paired devices

At the minimum, your StagesBike needs to be paired to Zwift as a controllable in order to function correctly. For the best performance in Zwift, Stages recommends you pair the bike and power meters as follows:

Zwift device

Stages device

Stages device name

Power source

Left power meter

“Stages #####” where “#####” is the ANT ID printed on the inside of the crank arm


Left power meter



“StagesBike ####” where “####” is the last 4 digits of the serial number printed on the lower left leg of the StagesBike

Note: Never pair to the right power meter, it will only send half power.

If you do not see your left power meter, use the Stages Cycling app to check that its firmware is up to date (at least 1.8.1 firmware). If you do not see the power meter in the Stages Cycling app, unplug the bike and try again. If still not visible, replace the CR2032 battery in the power meter. If problems continue, submit a new support ticket

Apple TV users and pairing HR

Apple TV only allows 2 Bluetooth connections. Apple TV users that want to pair heart rate and the StagesBike to the Apple TV can simply use the 'StagesBike' as all 3 sources of data.
