About the PowerTap G3 Hub Power Meter
PowerTap is known for their hub-based power meters which have been on the market for over 15 years and have a reputation of being reliable, accurate and trustworthy. The company is currently on their third generation of power meter hub, the PowerTap G3. The PowerTap G3 Hub Power Meter is used in replace of your current hub and is able to deliver +/- 1.5% accuracy and transmits both speed and cadence data as well. You can purchase a stand-alone hub, or one that is pre-built into a completed wheel set, making installation a breeze.
At $399, the G3 offers accuracy, durability, ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART – all from an established power meter manufacture with a reputation of making top-notch products.
If you buy a completed wheelset, installation is about as easy as it gets. All you need to do to is install the wheel in your bike and you’re good to go.
