FSW3 with Powertap Rear hub and White Industries front hub



Back in the old days, it used to be that you had your Powertap wheel for trainin' and another set of wheels for racin'. And you were bummed, because you darn sure wanted to use your Powertap in races, but buying a second Powertap? Yowch!

If you want to know what you're capable of, you race with a power meter. If you want to know what your power needs really are in a race, you race with a power meter. But you had your trainin' wheel and your racin' wheels and that's just how it went.

And then one day... those crazy guys at November (that's us) proved that you were giving up precisely jack squat in races when you were using your trainin' wheels if your trainin' wheels are FSW3s and you made some smart choices about tires. So we're making this real easy for you.
