Training done right.

You may see a lot of power Meters on race day, but they’re really most useful as a training tool: quantifying your outputs is a surefire way to keep your training on track. That’s the idea behind the PowerTap G3 Alloy Power Meter Wheelset. PowerTap has paired its venerable G3 hub to a pair of Sunringle rims, which aren’t going to win any light wheel competitions, but are perfect for long rides over less-than-ideal pavement and in less-than-ideal weather.

The G3 hub is lighter than the previous SL+ by about 80 grams, and is now ANT+ compatible, so it can send data right to your PowerTap Joule, Garmin, or other ANT+ head unit.

  • Dependable, training-focused hub and rim combination
  • ANT+ capability
  • Box-section alloy rims laced to PowerTap hubs with 32 spokes per wheel

Rims have too much flex, squishy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought a set last August. I have put a little over 5000 miles on them. The G3 itself is fantastic, hence the 3 star rating. However, the rims are not stiff enough and have too much flex. For the first couple of weeks, I kept thinking I was flatting all the time. I have already had the rear wheel trued once and looks like I may need to have it retrued again soon.
I also have a set of Enve 1.65s with a G3 that I also purchased from CC for $1600 on sale. Not a fair comparison, but I would much rather have paid an extra $600 and gotten 2 sets of the Enves. Bottom line, G3 is great but spend a little more for better wheels.
UPDATE: no more retruing. The rim developed cracks around the spoke nipples after about 7500-8000 miles. Rebuilt with DT Swiss RR440. Much, much better now

Total garbage, steer clear

Well, after putting 200 miles on these wheels, I'm gonna change my initial review, to one star. These wheels are complete, and utter garbage. Every time I ride on them, I break a spoke. I've broken two spokes in about 200 miles. Cost me over $75 in repair bills, to replace the broken spokes, and have the wheel trued, again.
The hub itself, works fantastic. No problems whatsoever with that. It's the wheel built around it that sucks.
