Paligap is launching new G3 PowerTap G3 and Pro hubs, with re-designed head units and wheels, to the UK trade. The CycleOps UK distributor said that as part of a complete redesign of the PowerTap range, the G3 hub has been designed for high-performance.
With a smaller hub shell and wider hub flanges to improve wheel stiffness, the system will be the lightest Power Meter system on the market, according to Paligap. The hub also features new electronic developments that allow for easier servicing.
The Pro hub has also been redesigned, offering the same new features as the G3, in a more cost effective package. Hubs start at £675 and rise up to £1,350. "The G3 unit will give better performance and durability for athletes using Power,” explained Paligap MD David Lane. “We have been able to drop the price on the new meters, making Power a more affordable option for more riders.”
The new PowerTap hubs will be available as complete wheelsets for 2012. They’re built using Enve’s 45mm and 65mm carbon rims, with the G3 hub and matching front hub.
Lane added: "The new wheelsets offer our customers the complete solution, for those that want a race ready off the shelf package, this ticks all the boxes."
There will also be alloy training wheelsets available, starting from £865. The Carbon wheels start from £2400. Finishing the range off, the new Joule GPS Computers now come with integrated GPS and historical reporting. Dealers will be able to see the new CycleOps Power range of products at the Saris stand at Eurobike. Or in September at the UK launch in Bristol (18th-21st at Paintworks Bristol).
