You live and breathe by numbers. Sure, your training wheels have a PowerTap, but you need the money-makers. Why Because you need to know just how powerful that final sprint was, but your training wheels just won't do for racing. Now, there's finally a wheelset that utilizes the very latest in carbon wheel design and power measurement, the PowerTap G3 SES 3. 4 Tubular Wheelset. Led by aero-engineering legend Simon Smart and Enve Composites, the rims of this wheelset are identical to those found on the Enve Smart System 3. 4 carbon tubulars. Enve used its most sophisticated technology and engineering techniques to create this fast, stiff, and aerodynamic wheelset. The 3. 4's aerodynamic design starts with the size differential of the wheels. Enve accounted for the different behaviors of front and rear wheels and designed the 3. 4s with a front wheel that's 35mm deep and 26mm wide, while the rear wheel is 45mm deep and 24mm wide. The front wheel's shallow profile and wide stance helps decrease drag in windy conditions. On the other hand, the rear wheel's depth decreases drag because stability is less affected at the aft position of the bike. But, the SES 3. 4 tubular is not only aero, it's also light, stiff, and strong. The Enve SES series boasts the highest strength-to-weight ratio on the market, and its due in part to Enve's patented process of molding in spoke holes, nipple seats, and valve stem holes. This means that when you combine the hand-built Enve carbon tubular hoops with the new PowerTap G3 Wireless Hub and a super-light PowerTap Front Hub, it adds up to one of the lightest and stiffest carbon PowerTap tubular wheelsets ever produced. On the PowerTap end, it completely overhauled the design of previous PowerTap models, and improved multiple aspects ranging from rigidity to functionality. The new PowerTap G3 rear hub is a power meter on a diet. An 80-gram weight reduction from the popular SL makes the G3 rear hub the lightest power meter in the world...
