Stages Cycling has announced the acquisition of a Norwegian developed group cycling software platform dubbed VismoX, something that the firm already handled global distribution for.
VismoX is the software at the heart of Stages Flight, the suite of comprehensive indoor cycling experiences and management tools. Stages Flight features web-based club and instructor tools for the creation, scheduling, and management of Stages Flight classes, as well as participant accounts with user histories and community engagement. All of this is powered by in-studio software and hardware featuring precise power measurement and ANT+ capabilities to deliver an engaging, dynamic, and immersive indoor cycling experience.
“At Stages Cycling we’re focused 100% on cycling. Our goal is to help commercial studios create the best cycling experience possible and to help their members be their best – the acquisition of VismoX builds on our ability to do just that,” says Jim Liggett, CEO of Stages Cycling. “We now have the capability to offer our customers an industry-leading ecosystem that is unrivaled.”
“We depend on Stages Cycling to provide innovative products and technology that help us create a unique and exhilarating cycling experience for our members,” says Christian Mason, Managing Director of Virgin Active South East Asia. “The combination of Stages Flight and Stages indoor bikes is a proven winner for us. We’re excited to see what the Stages team comes up with next.”
Stages Cycling also announced record-setting Q1 financial results, posting 163% growth in 2016. Strong sales of Stages SC studio bikes and global deployment of the Stages Flight group cycling platform contributed to the firm’s strong financial performance.
