The Stages Dash M50 GPS bike head unit is the most compact model in the Dash range and has been explicitly designed to help you can reach your full potential on every ride, whether you’re a first-year rider or a seasoned pro.
With its smart design, intuitive interface and full-colour Everbrite screen, the Dash M50 is unequalled in usability, fully optimised for turn-by-turn navigation and enables you to complete complex training regimes with ease.
Meanwhile, ANT+ and Bluetooth compatibility means you can pair your Dash M50 to almost any power meter or training device, whether you’re a Stages Power owner or not.
The M50 sits under the L50 in terms of size, featuring a 2.25" (58mm) screen with up to 12 data fields per screen and up to 12.5 hours real-world runtime with its backlight at 30% screen brightness.
At just 51mm wide and 78mm tall and weighing 94g, it’s ideal to slip between triathlon extensions or for those seeking a compact but fully-featured head unit.
This latest evolution of Stages’ Dash head unit has been developed and constructed primarily to simplify your user experience on the bike. A distilled and fully customisable interface unlocks limitless potential with minimal effort, giving you the freedom to focus your attention on your riding rather than getting bogged down in opaque software.
Stages is deeply conscious of the need for both ease of use and a user experience that precisely matches your personal preferences. The M50 is fully compatible with a wide range of ANT+ and Bluetooth devices, fitness apps and file formats so you can tailor your training, exploration and ride analysis to fit what suits you best.
The M50 also improves upon the original Dash in that it features a dedicated high-resolution colour LCD screen that’s fully-optimised for outdoor riding conditions. Whatever the light conditions you can be confident that the display will remain clear thanks to Stages’ exclusive Everbrite technology. The unit can be locked into position either landscape or portrait and is firmly secured by a sturdy aluminium mounting system that will remain in place even on the toughest terrain.
The M50 unlocks a whole new level of on-bike exploration through its comprehensive and specialised map features. The majority of maps available on the market are based on car travel, however, the M50 utilises cycle-optimised OSM map files which indicate bike paths, dirt tracks and potential hazards.
You can build routes with the all-new Stages Link app, or any other third-party providers including Strava and RidewithGPS. The M50 supports FIT, GPX and TCX file formats giving you a wide variety of options.
With 16GB of base maps preloaded onto each device and free additional regional downloads, you can explore a vast area straight out of the box. The display graphics are suited to all light conditions and ensure that you’re always on track with turn-by-turn directions and a colour-coded elevation profile.
The M50 means that you can complete complex and progressive workouts on the bike without having to divert your focus from giving your best ride performance.
Simply follow preloaded workouts on screen or build your own and gain fitness, strength and new levels of riding enjoyment. As you become stronger and fitter with time, the M50 gives you the option to initiate adaptive zones that optimise your workout programmes according to your outputs, so you can concentrate solely on reaching your performance goals.
With dedicated power readings and concise metrics, you can tailor your training programmes to get more out of every single ride. Distilled infographics – such as the colour-coded power gauge – and customised display configurations with up to 16 data fields mean that you can easily monitor your progress on the bike and adjust your output accordingly.
WORKS WITH ANYTHING
Fully future-proofed and able to be synced with a wide variety of devices, the M50 enables you to customise your head unit to display what matters most to you. You can integrate your Di2 or eTap drivetrain with the computer, set up text alerts or control your smart trainer – and as future technologies arrive, you can be confident that these will be synced too.
Whilst the Dash M50 forms part of a truly integrated system with Stages power meters, its compatibility with ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart means it’s perfectly poised to sync with other brands’ power meters as well as smart trainers, adding to its versatility and giving you the same benefits with your existing components.
The Dash M50 can be set up using either a home computer, mobile app or on the unit itself. Guided walk-throughs enable you to link your M50 with the all-new dedicated Stages Link mobile or desktop apps, which are included with your purchase. You can review your rides, sync workouts and build new courses with minimal fuss while rich data capture enables you to drill deeper into trends so you can get the most out of every ride.
Once your ride’s complete, sync via USB or using the Stages Link App, which can also push to Strava, Training Peaks and other third-party training logs.
