Powertap SL+ Review: First review of my
Cycleops Powertap SL+ wheel built by (Rob) Pismet Custom Wheel
Have put a little over
150 miles on it since I got it a few weeks ago.
It was ordered and delivered in 7 weeks as quoted, wheel is light
for a Powertap wheel weighing in at 1001g w/o tape or skew.
Wheel was very true on delivery as expected for a custom built wheel
complete with spec sheet for my wheel.
After riding for 150 miles it is still as true as when it arrived
which to me is a sign that it was built with care to detail and not
just laced up a fast true and out the door.
The ride report this
was built for my weight and as a climbing wheel so it was built with
a Powertap SL+ hub laced to a Kinlin XR-270 rim 24r/2X using CXRay-Black
on the Drive Side and laced 2X using
XRay-Black spokes on the
Non-Drive Side and DT-12mm-Brass-Silver nipples which is what was
suggested by Rob for my needs.
I also have a Easton EA90 SLX R4 hub and this wheel is only 161.8g
heaver than the Easton and is much stuffer.
It rides very smooth and climbs well the Kinlin XR-270 rim is strong
and stiff and laced to the
XRay spokes should hold up very well and so far has
delivered, time and mileage will tell I will report when I get a few
more hundred miles on it.
