We are all aware of the ubiquitous use of Power meters in the Pro road peloton, you can even track riders on power during the Grand Tours with live data etc. But actually, power makes even more sense off-road. What power does is isolate feelings and gives true data. In competition, this means you can stay out the red on the Enduro link sections, analyse where your putting in the power on downhill runs and pace your XC marathons - away from the racing its a valuable tool to monitor your condition to see if the training is working and just a fun motivational tool. That's why teams like Yeti Factory racing use Stages Power Meters it gives valuable real-time data and encourages harder riding.
