Powertap G3 Options
The G3 is available in Campagnolo or Shimano 11-speed freehub bodies. If you'd like a Campagnolo version leave us a note during the ordering process and we'll covert the freehub body free of charge.
Powertap G3 Details
The G3 Powertap is CycleOps' high performance hub weighing in at 337g, their lightest hub yet. Furthermore the G3 features a completely redesigned hub shell featuring a 5mm wider flange spacing aimed at increased wheel strength and durability. The new hub is matte black with subtle gloss black CycleOps logos wrapped around the shell, very much matching the gloss logos on ENVE's Smart rims.
The G3 will be compatible with any existing ANT+ enabled Garmin unit allowing a seamless integration into your current setup. Although the new hub is not compatible with the older egg-shaped yellow Powertap head unit, their new ANT+ Joule and Joule GPS units are designed around the G3 hub.
One final yet very important change to the G3 is the ease of serviceability. The wireless transmitter no longer sits inside the hub which allows for a smaller hub diameter and easier removal. With common tools the transmitter can be removed and sent for repair or replacement without sending the wheel back to Saris.
