Description

Training is as much a part of racing as putting on your skinsuit and toeing the start line. For this reason, ENVE and PowerTap joined forces to create the G3 46 Carbon Power Meter Clincher Wheelset, the most powerful weapon in your arsenal.

Beginning with the rim, it features three different technologies that work together to manifest a 1590 gram wheelset. The Hybrid Modulus Laminate (HML), Variable Resin Chemistry (VRC), and Inert Gas Compaction (IGC) are methods by which the rims are laid up. Essentially, they place specific carbon fibers at varying points in the rim where their strength is most advantageous and use resin to bond the different fibers into a singular structure. The rims are then laced with DT Swiss Competition spokes, 20 radial in the front and 24 two-cross, drive-side in the rear. The rim is 46mm deep, an ideal all-around rim depth, and 20.8mm wide.

In the middle of it all are PowerTap hubs. While the front is a lightweight 100-gram hub, the rear is the latest version of the G3. And while it weighs 80 grams less than the popular SL+, it has all the same functionality. It is equipped with ANT+ wireless transmitter, sending power, torque, speed, and cadence data to the compatible ANT+ device of your choice. The G3 design still has a "torque tube" with eight strain gauges, yielding measurements accurate within +/- 1.5% between 40 and 130 rpm. More importantly, the G3 improved the rigidity by widening the flanges and shrinking the hub profile. And to make electronics a bit more accessible, they are now placed in the endcap.

Unanswered Question

Are these an ENVE rim or a Reynolds rim? There seems to be some confusion on this point.

Very nice!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Had these for about a month now. Absolutely love them. They are fast, stiff and handle beautifully. I run michelins PRO 4s on them. Great combo. Only have about one hundred road miles on them but, loved them from the beginning. I use them on my trainer also.

very good wheels

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

i have to say the PowerTap G3 46 Carbon Clincher Wheelset is very fast and very stiff there is no flex while climbing out of the saddle and the brakes do not hit the rim at all some carbon rims like easton and zipps where the rim flexs when you get out of the saddle power tap did an awesome job choosing the renyolds carbon rim and building it well
