Thread Details

If you are in the market for a power meter, this is a great deal. When this was released a few years ago it was over $1000!

Note that this is for the hub will still need to build a wheel around it or get your wheel re-spoked. Still, given the accuracy and durability of this hub (it has DT Swiss internals), it is still cheaper than most other power meter options.

There are pros and cons for any type of power meter, but this is a great hub from a very respected company.

Here are the specs from Powertap:
  • PowerTap GS straight pull hub shell
  • 24-spoke rear
  • Weight: 320g
  • DT Swiss bearings
  • Compatibility: Shimano/SRAM or Campagnolo
  • Powermeter accuracy of +/- 1.5%
  • Field-serviceable electronics
  • ANT+ or Bluetooth Smart
  • Battery: CR 2032
  • 9, 10, 11 speed compatible

I am guessing that they must be releasing a new model. I am surprised that the g3 hub hasn't dropped to this price though. I mean a DT Swiss hub will cost at least around $160 so you are essentially getting a power meter for $140! I just couldn't believe that they dropped the price this much over a few years. The original msrp was something like $1089.

Awesome deal! Not long ago PowerTap hubs were about $600 min.
