The TCH Review: See this page for the TCH take on the G3 Hub, which power these wheels. These wheels are a huge leap forward for power-meter racers for two simple reasons: weight and rim depth. Everyone knows that the first place to trim weight is on the wheels, as rotational weight slows much more than weight on the bike, and these come in at a race-ready 1669 grams. The 4.5 profile isn’t as deep as the 7.8s which allows better stability in high winds, but still maintain the aero profile for TTs and Triathlons. (See below for one of our training camp leaders, Triathlete Linsey Corbin cranking away with her PowerTap Joule.)

On the tech specs: The weight is the key metric here. DT Aerolite spokes are a good choice. Remember to swap out to carbon-ready brake shoes. Call us for specifics on your usage and current setup and we’ll make sure you get the right wheel.

The Skinny: One of the few powermeter deep section wheels that are race-ready out of the box. To answer a frequent question: aero wheels always come with a bit of noise, and our riders found these to be slightly quieter than the average aero wheel.

Our Commitment to you: We only carry products that we use and believe in, and if we get it wrong, we’ll make it right. Give us a call to talk about your specific build or needs.

Kicker: We want to keep you on the road- we'll toss in the cassette or the tires. Or, if you'd rather, we'll add in a Garmin 810, a pair of Oakleys, or a set of Look Keo Classic pedals.
