Power Zones

The Dash has several options for setting your power zones. The power zones used on the Dash will automatically update based on your FTP setting unless you are using Automatic (Adaptive) zones, which will use your ride history to detect an increase or decrease in your FTP.

You can also customize your training zone ranges, add and delete zones, and change zone colors through the Stages Cycling app.
