The CycleOps Power 65mm G3 carbon wheelset matches a G3 hub to a 65mm section rim for a big aero benefit with power measurement. So now you can get all your race-critical training data from a wheelset designed to make you shine on race day while being reliable enough for riding day in and day out.
This wheel represents a partnership with Enve composites which is known for their very light and very true all-carbon rims. Enve's rims are built with a patented manufacturing process where the spoke holes are molded. This dramatically increases rim strength in the critical area of the spoke holes. These hand-built wheels are laced with premium DT Aerolite spokes which we think are the ultimate spokes for performance, low weight, ride quality and aerodynamics.
A 65mm rim section is perfect for those seeking maximum watt savings at speed. Weight is a respectable 1,365/1,625 grams for the tubular and clincher respectively.
G3 hub is about 90 grams lighter than the Pro and is billed as the world's lightest power meter. Its 336 gram actual weight means there is virtually no penalty over a standard rear hub and weight savings is estimated at least 250 grams over crank-based power meters. This allows the weight-conscious competitor to use this hub on race day to record critical power information.
In addition to being lower weight, the new G3 hub also has a smaller profile with a stealth black finish. Powertap's excellent reliability has been further enhanced with now field-serviceable electronics that deliver better signal strength. One of the less talked about improvements is the wider hub flange which contributes to more even left/right spoke tension thus building into a stronger, longer lasting wheel.
The G3 hub is ANT+ compatible and can send power, torque, speed and cadence to a Garmin, Joule or any other ANT+ computer.
