VIDEO: First Look at Stages Dash M50: It Is Bright

Stages Dash web app is easy to use and makes customizing the Dash bike computers quick and easy. However, Dash seems to lack some basic features such as auto power down, auto lap and smart bike trainers control.

Stages announced a whole new lineup of bike computers last year at Eurobike. The Stages Dash L10, Dash M50, and the Dash L50.

The Dash L10 is the cheapest of the bunch and probably the most attractive one. It comes with less mapping functionalities, no color screen, and 24-hour of battery life. It retails for $149 making it an attractive budget bike computer if you don’t care much about a color screen or navigation.

The Dash M50 and Dash L50 (not released yet) are very similar. The L50 has a slightly bigger screen 2.75″ (68mm) vs 2.25” of the M50. Same color screen, same feature set, and up to 14 hours of battery life at 30% brightness vs 12.5 hours battery life for the M50.
