Product Description

2017 CPC 38 Power Tap Wheelset

Carolina Precision Components 3.8 Power Tap Clincher Wheelset

The Carolina 3.8 wheel system utilizes our DT sourced 38mm deep Toray T700 low void construction carbon fiber rim featuring off-set drilling and reinforced valve and external nipple holes. The wheels center on PowerTaps newest hubset and are laced to Sapim CX X-ray spokes and Sapim Polyax 14mm alloy nipples. The front wheel uses a 20 hole radial while the rear utilizes a 2 cross 24 hole pattern to ensure both durability and speed.

Combining the new 38mm x 23mm rim and Sapim spoke system, we were able to provide a lower profile wheel for high wind situations or when you needed the extra advantage of a super fast wind up such as in a criterium. Carolina uses the PowerTap G3 hubset. it’s design allows for a simple, straight-forward way to measure power. By mounting the strain gauges in an area where external forces, such as spoken tension, cannot impact power measurement, the PowerTap G3 is able to deliver +/- 1.5% accuracy ride after ride. More than just a powermeter, The G3 delivers speed, cadence and power with pin-point accuracy all in one product. And its ability to be easily switched between bikes means you’ll never miss a watt.
