CycleOps Powertap Pro+ Wireless Hub $0.00
Purchasing a powermeter is a serious proposition, primarily due to its cost and its unique importance in helping you gauge your training. The CycleOps PowerTap Pro+ Wireless Hub gives you the feedback to, as Socrates said, know thyself.
The Pro+ brings the ANT+ Sport wireless transmission to a new price point, making the Pro+ the most affordable wireless powermeter in CycleOps' line-up. Now power transmission can be monitored on any bike, you'll just need to build the Pro+ into your favorite rim and you'll be ready to go. The ANT+ wireless protocol allows for a lighter unit that uses less power (for longer battery life), and can interface with other ANT+ monitoring devices, such as CycleoOps Joule and Cervo CPUs or power enabled Garmin GPS units.
And though the Pro+ hub comes in at a decent weight of 553g, it will always weigh more than a standard hub and detractors might get focused on the difference gain. What doesn't usually get discussed is how the PowerTap wheel (relative to its non-wattage competitors) has the additional weight is concentrated so close to the axle. There, it has a far smaller effect on the overall feel of the wheel during acceleration. An extra 250g at the rim would be a very different matter.
The PowerTap Pro+ Wireless Hub uses a 15mm alloy axle and the hub shell is alloy as well. Data is downloaded from the unit via USB. And like all Power Tap models, the Pro+ is accurate to within +/- 1.5% -- a full percent more accurate than SRM. The hub is available in 24 and 32-hole drillings and comes with either a Campagnolo or Shimano/SRAM compatible freehub.
